As it is getting silent in this most interesting forum, one of my latest finds; an officer of the Feldpost. Technically they rated under Verwaltungsoffiziere, but with a different set of insignia.

Hello Gentlemen!

 

 

Excellent Photos guys!

I agree, very nice contributions.

Here are three Italian members of Gioventu Italiana del LIttorio (GIL) which was a Fascist youth organisation.

They are standing on a railway platform in Croatia.

The middle youth is wearing an Italian youth organisation fighting knife.

Cheers,

Larry

    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some.

    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness.

So I know I have a shared background with many people. A less shared area - perhaps - is that I've always loved the thrill of the chase. When I decide I want, say, a 1914 trio with an original bar, to a cavalry unit, the utter thrill of getting out there and, (a) finding groups that fit the criteria and, (b) comparing them re: ranks, uni
