Stuka - some good early material. Notice how the centre of the boot one is made to look like medals.

Your two really collectable ones are the flare pistols. Are the British or German - looking at them, I

think the big one is probabaly British - perhaps a Webley ? Certainly a good day out. Mervyn

From the china pin trays - the one with the Queen's head is a 1953 Coronation souvenir - probably by Wedgewood. Mervyn

And I think I have problems, trying to smuggle books in to the house! (My wife insists on 'one in - one out'. How unfair is that?)

Best of luck, Stuka.

Haha!

We had that rule (one  in - one out) for my wife's shoes! But to get that shoe story in balance she should get 3 out for any new pair coming in!

Anyway this was a very good subject (the shoe's story!)to start in order to get the tank in!! Thanks Trooper_D!

 

Here are some other items waiting to get in ;-)

Women and shoes - yes, I know all about that :(  Our collecting is entirely different, of course ;)

So it is! 

I keep on telling here; imagine all the shoes you will be able to buy, when selling my stuff after I am gone!

Absolutley different!  No one NEEDS that many shoes.  It borders on obsessive.  No my collection... ;)

I had a house clearing last week and found this quiet nice tray.

Not military related at all and yet....

I think it's is going to be a keeper!

Hey Paul, 

I rarely drink alcohol at home!

But do visit my local pub, or others, 4 to 5 times a week! ;-) I'll take it with me as a personal coaster.

In the same house I found a map of a well known( over here!!) painting with the artist's signature in pencil on it.

The guy is called Henry Luyten and had his workplace not fare from were I live.

He was a great painter, but nothing special to that.

Here it comes; he painted a portret of Manfred Freiherr von Richthofen and figured in the German propaganda magazine Signal.

Good excuse to buy your friends a drink.

A big surprise with the big tin cars, they seem to be yonezawa toys and sell well (in good condition!).

Kris,

Lovely to keep your valuable medals in, do not lift it yourself, hernias result from this.

Back in the day when the wife and I had time to do things, we go downtown.  When we meet up, Terry says, "The antique store has a badge you might be interested in."  So, with no great hope I go to have a look. 

A Canadian Militia helmet, with Pattern 1908 Star Plate to the 31st Regiment.  Traces of gold paper (amateur theatricals?).  Sadly missing the screw attachment for the spike/button, but 100% authentic ("au jus" for our French friends).

And how much? 

$35!
