Small collection of ww2 technology

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I thought I'd share with you all some images of my ww2 technology pieces.

I'll start with this slide projector. It is French built. The wooden box in which it is housed is marked "OKW / Inland" (Oberkommando der Wehrmacht). The inner cardboard box, second photo, is marked "Eigentum der Oberkommando der Wehrmacht, Parc Monceau, Paris" and stamped accordingly.

Does anyone know this exact location in Paris?

Some other items currently on display in my living room:

Bakelite bunker lamp. Although missing some parts, still in nice condition.

3 cockpit instruments.

2 ground dug rotors from an Enigma machine, still attached to each other via the original, rusted, shaft.

Instrument in detail. The text on the instrument is unreadable (nummer is FL20723) but from "www.cockpitinstrumente.de" I can tell it's a supply indicator for an Arado 196.

This one is a bit of an oddity. Found this one in Holland. It looks like a transportation tube, of which both ends can be removed. Looks like ww2 or older and very heavily used.

If anyone has more information on these, please let me know :cheers:

A desk light with cover for the light. It's marked "R" and the serial number 6230-12-157-8422.

I can't find any information on the net about this one so this one could also be post-ww2.

Has seen enyone seen one of these before?
