  1. Hello, I can live with the damage! Lesson learned.... I am a restorer by profession and hardly(in fact never) touch the militaria I collect. But let me warn you about the polystyrene heads, like the one you are showing your helmet on. They decompose by time and can leave your liner with serious damage. That doesn't happen over night, however. It takes time, but never the less better safe then sorry .
  2. so glad I could lay hands on one! It was high on my list, of the "items I would very much like to have, but it will probably never happen!".
  3. The Mercator finally home. (the port of attach for that ship is in fact Antwerp, but it can be seen and visited in Ostend, for many years, and a (heavy)discussion between the two towns started since...) This one is 75 by 120 cm.
  4. It could be indeed! Didn't even think of it! Guy, would be the right man to ask.
  5. Ok, thanks for your input! And what is it made for? Letter clip...?
  6. Don't know what the "3" and the "A" could stand for, but as it is a "genie" buckle, the "G" seems logical...
  7. looks like pewter but weights like bronze, no marking. It is 22.5 by 11 cm and weights nearly 1 kg!
  8. First answers are positive. It is a nice WWI pilot brevet, but dating it is quiet difficult; it could be post war, up to 1920.
  9. I could ask on a French forum if you want!?
  10. l am quiet confident in it being genuine. It reveals a dove tail construction, like one would expect on originals. Also have a few of them to compare it to.
  11. Thank you! I did try to google it, but it didn't give anything over here... I did manage to find the regiment with google.
  12. hello, could some one en-light me on what the badge under the regimental badge could mean.
  13. Thank you. And no need for translation, I am ok with Spanish.
  14. Interesting site. Thanks for pointing it out. Amazing number of different swords they have had. I had no idea. Wish there was a list like that about Belgian blades. Any way, here it is;
  15. Thank you! I'll have a look.
  16. hello, it was just ID, by one of the members specialized in medals. It must be Scottish and indeed most probably masonic related. The coat of arms and the motto are those of the Dundas familly. "Dundas Comte de Zetland - Ecosse - (Baronet, 16 nov. 1762; baron Dundas d'Aske, 13 août 1794; comte de Z., 2 juillet 1838) - D'argent au lion de gueules enclos dans un double trêcheur fleuronné et contre-fleuronné du même Cimier une tête de léopard de gueules couronnée à l'antique d'or brochant sur un bosquet de chêne de sinople englanté d'or Supports deux lions au naturel couronnés à l'antique d'or colletés chacun d'une couronne de chêne de sinople englantée d'or portant chacun suspendu au collier un écusson celui à dextre d'argent au chef-sautoir de gueules et le canton d'argent ch d'un lion de sable (Bruce) celui à senestre losangé d'argent et de gueules (Fitzwilliam) Devise ESSAYEZ" Une médaille d'origine écossaise donc. D'autre blason de la famille DUNDAS presque similaire existent.Peut etre une loge maçonnique....
  17. Sorry wrong section, it should have been posted in; Germany: Third Reich: Research, Documentation & Photographs if a mod could adjust my mistake, please, I would much appreciate.
  18. hello all, a colleague on a French forum is looking for any info regarding a member of his family who committed suicide after the plot of 20 July 1944. He only has a picture of the burial and the name and rank, major Deming, active LW officer at that time.
  19. Thanks Peter! I did found a similar one on the net, but don't know what it is worth (speaking about the info!).
