I've posted my collection on another Forum, but I promised Chris that I'd also post it here, so here goes. As a general background, I collect stuff from all the Wehrmacht branches, plus a little political stuff. I have a 'bunker' in the basement that is made up of three rooms. Here are some general shots of the first room, which is dedicated to Heer stuff.

Another shot. The room has been re-arranged somewhat since this photo was taken. Also note the crappy concrete floor. That's been improved somewhat.

Another 'old' photo. The shelves below then uniforms are now filled with books.

A more recent photo. The floor is much improved, and the table behind the uniform is full of straps & boards.

Jeeze, I just noticed that I'm on 'probation'. Those that know what I do for a living will find that humorous.

Anyway, moving on, here's room #2. This is the small amount of poltical stuff that I have.

God, look at all that dust! I'm embarrassed to post this photo. Look at all that dust! I was sheet-rocking in another room, and anyone who's done sheet-rock knows how the dust goes everywhere.....

Room #2 also has a few Kriegsmarine tunics in it.

NOBODY is looking at the FLOOR! :speechless::P

I thought the cat was to "sweep" the dust down? :catjava:

Added any named tunics lately? And IS there even anything still "out there?" We see uniforms about every 5 years as somebody sells off a collection, and none in between.

And, the last room is dedicated to the Luftwaffe.

Haven't added any tunics lately, Rick. I'm pretty much out of room, and since the job change, extra-duty $ is gone.

A couple more LW tunics - and more dust..... (I've cleaned the place up since then, Rick. The damn cat refuses to work.)

But there's an inspiration to us all-- Stop When The House Is Full! :beer:

In absence of new "stuff" myself, have been adding steadily to reference sources. Glenn turned up the secret 1939 list of army Beamten, so might be worth checking some pocket labels again.

Miscellaneous LW insignia in home-made frames. What a pain in the butt they are to make.....

I wish! All my 'HV' tunics have had the names removed.... :banger:

Last shot of the night. Looking out from Room #3 into Room #2. Later on I'll post photos of the individual uniforms and of the loose cloth that I have.
