Small collection of ww2 technology

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I thought I'd share with you all some images of my ww2 technology pieces.

I'll start with this slide projector. It is French built. The wooden box in which it is housed is marked "OKW / Inland" (Oberkommando der Wehrmacht). The inner cardboard box, second photo, is marked "Eigentum der Oberkommando der Wehrmacht, Parc Monceau, Paris" and stamped accordingly.

Does anyone know this exact location in Paris?

Some other items currently on display in my living room:

Bakelite bunker lamp. Although missing some parts, still in nice condition.

3 cockpit instruments.

2 ground dug rotors from an Enigma machine, still attached to each other via the original, rusted, shaft.

This one is a bit of an oddity. Found this one in Holland. It looks like a transportation tube, of which both ends can be removed. Looks like ww2 or older and very heavily used.

If anyone has more information on these, please let me know :cheers:

A desk light with cover for the light. It's marked "R" and the serial number 6230-12-157-8422.

I can't find any information on the net about this one so this one could also be post-ww2.

Has seen enyone seen one of these before?

    • 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

    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.
