Thank you. I probably shouldn't have posted the Kriegmarine cap on this Luftwaffe thread... oops!!! Sorry, moderator!!! But I didn't want to post the same pictures I already have on a specific thread with my collectibles. Willi and I did an email conference to discuss what we'd like to exhibit this year (now 2010) at the four shows we did last year. So far it looks like Chantilly will be all Luftwaffe (Willi's contribution will be his Display Shield), Richmond will be Luftwaffe and Brentsville will be WW2 German and U.S. Navy. Willi will be busy this year with the Wilson History & Research Center of Little Rock, AR. They sent a couple up from Florida and Robby Wilson came up from Arkansas to see his collection. They'll be sending up their curator and a photographer early this year to shoot his collection. The WHRC is primarily interested in all military headgear of the 20th century, but are also starting a "Collectors" section a collector and his collection. So when that comes online you're going to want to visit that. Actually you can visit now: http://www.militaryheadgear.com/. Willi has also been contacted by an author to help on a book by Schiffer about Army, Waffen-SS and Hermann Goring panzer and assault gun uniforms. Let me know if anybody out there has HG panzer/StuG stuff. It's got to be 100% authentic and original, no restorations. I'll be glad to pass the info to Willi. So he's going to be somewhat busy. I'm going to miss him at the Richmond show. He'll come by at the Chantilly and Brentsville shows, and will probably put up his own exhibit at the Virginia Museum of Military Vehicles (VMMV) towards the end of October. Seems so far ahead but as these years pass faster and faster, it won't be that long.

Cheers Mates and Happy New Year and Happy Collecting. Hope to see you out at one of my/our exhibits this year.

Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend any shows this year. I would love to see some pics here sometime, if possible.

Here is a thread where people posted their HG stuff. There are a few panzer related things. All I have are a couple sets of HG Panzer tabs(One set is the 01Jan-01Mar43 white tabs with pink outer piping and the other is a set of white tabs with an outter blue piping and the panzer skulls). I do have the HG M43 tunic, which I am very proud of!

    • I've never smoked a single cigarette in my 62 years so I can't compare, but I can say that I like Lapsang Souchong tea, having tasted it the first time when I was 16, and a sea cadet. I'm not a Brit, though.
    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
