Chris.

They used the old type skull in the prototypes, which were rejected.

But ................... nice to see the skull still featuring on British uniforms in these politically correct times.

And here's Bernhard Reddemann in the background, the big guy with a notebook and pencil, his overcoat on his shoulder. The flamethrower is the Kleif M.1914. Notice that he doesn't have a Totenkopf sle

I purchased one of these from Weitze late last year with a COA.

Are there now four known to exist??

I don't remember that Weitze had an original on his site during last years? There were only MWH fakes for sale. Can you show us pictures?

I've seen the black/white/red slip-on loops in WWI strap collections. I wasn't sure what they indicated....perhaps volunteers. Seeing this, it seems it must be a postwar thing.

This lot was sold by Weitze two times. It was offered as "Wehrwolf", but in my opinion it has nothing to do with the Wehrverband.

Awesome collection.  I do have a question.  Post number 2 the blue hat with the orange piping on the second shelf.  Can you tell me what it is please?  I have one, with out the badge, and don't know what branch it represents.

Welxcome to the GMIC!

In answer to your question, I'm not sure which post you mean but you will likely have better luck if you ask the original poster directly.  Just click on the screen name of the person who posted and you can send him a private message. :)

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
