  21. Hi Peter, In my West German Army Volonteer Time (1960 s) Recrut's had to buy many Things them self,like: Boot Polish,Toothpaste Coat hangers,writing Materials (if want:Marching Straps for Boots )ect .ect.all available in the Cantine..Our short "Dicebeaker Boots "don't need Bootpulls but such where not "forbitten to Own".. any Barrack room had also a "Stiefelknecht" to pull the boots off. (I still owe one today since wearing all the Time a Pair of soft Chrom Russian Officer Boots very comfy.) Allowed was also to wear Private purchased Boots They just had (to match up) the Front Iron to fix (by the Civilian Bataillon Coppler) they also fixed "Heel Iron" to pay fore..allowed in the West Army (Not like in the East NVA)they not repaired Boots when worn gave new ones,I I believe this is now also in the today "Bundeswehr"They abandoned now the "Dicebeaker" after over 140 Years! Officers got some "Allowance" but still had to purchased there Uniform ect. some of my NCO Comrades bought Extra "Gala Uniform" Best Jurgen
  22. Hi Peter Monahan! Thanks for Your Interest,,Yep I come to they same Conclusion,others as the "Straight Pulls with wooden Handle) the Forget twisting locking with a "Snap"Hinges are Interesting,cannot found out if there is any Patent on them,maybe just in 1700 s some Black/Locksmith had this Idea.Yes Y' right they still can be purchased today in Equestrian Shops with similar now straight Hinges no round finals (and the antique for about £20 a Pair) I'am sure the Military used them on Campaign since easy to stow away..but not "Issue",rather private Purchased. Best Wishes Jurgen
  23. Same "Hinged Forget Corkscrews" are around since the 1700 s! (more ornate ) some English have the "Broad arrow" so military? I wonder if Boot pulls with this Hinge where around in 1700 s - and why not? Any INFO very appreciated! Jurgen Here the "ornate Hinge" of a 1700.s Corkscrew
