1830\'s British Military Lion Heads Bandsman Sword/ Side Arm.Matching numbers. I believe this dates from around 1830 so could well be a William IV, pre regulation 1850 date. The condition is very good with the blade having a very nice amount of its finish with certain areas having rust bleed, good amount on the surface and some down to the metal. The blade is not maker marked but has a rack number 85, same number on the scabbard! Leather top washer still in place. The brass hilt has sharp detail and is free from dents and knocks, lion head also has sharp detail including his tounge sticking out. Lovely heavy patina present, this has not been cleaned for many years! The leather scabbard is complete with tight stitching and supple enough that when removing the blade the scabbard will bend, there is at least one weak spot from this bending but has not gone through, care must be taken when removing the sword. The top chape is loose as is the bottom, bottom is stamped with the number 85 so really we have a matching numbers set. The blade will not fit flush down the scabbard , its around 10 mm shy, i have not tried to remedy it ,as this is the exact issued scabbard then a little attention might well fix if needed.
1842 Afghanistan CABUL Medal. May i start at stating im not a ''Medal guy'' so i will try my best with condition description. The medal in my opinion is good , has wear to the front and back design and some minor rim knocks. The top hanger is slightly loose so the medal does swivel as seen by the marks to the top rim. The side engraved naming has virtually gone, i have tried to make it out but with no luck so i am selling this at under catalog price for an unnamed example.
1864 Faschinenmesser Relic. Reserve-Artillery-Munitions-Column. Well its certainly a relic and i presume ground dug going by the condition that i bought for the unusual Regimental markings found along the cross guard, hopefully you will find of interest too!!
1887 Pattern Martini Henry Bayonet. 2nd Volunteer Battalion Gordon Highlanders. A very nice unit marked Wilkinson manufactured Martini Henry Bayonet and Leather Frog. The blade has minimal staining and one tiny water mark from the blade resting against the inside scabbard runner for such a long time. Blade has its factory edge with clear markings found to both sides. The date is 1889 so would fit in nice with the Boer War period and the 2nd battalion served in a number of actions during its service in South Africa. The cross guard and pommel again with minimal staining , top fixing button works and both leather grip plates are undamaged with just some sharpness gone to the cross hatch from use. The leather scabbard is supple with tight stitching and both brass ends are in fine condition with both having the same date marks. The very nice leather frog again in fine supple condition with a supple fastening cross strap. The back has very nice and clear stamps to the 2nd Volunteer Battalion of the Gordon Highlanders. Even with this bayonet being in such a very nice condition its even better having Volunteer unit marking to ID the Regimental use. NOT FOR SALE TO UNDER 18\'S AND UK ONLY!
1903 Pattern Leather Home Guard Belt. In very nice condition with supple leather, its dated 1940 and has clear makers details for the firm D.MASON&SON, WALSALL. Its been period shortend, size from one end to the centre of the buckle is 41 inches. Purchased this from the son of the veteran who served in the HG after doing time as a Fire Watcher before joinging the RAF at the tender age of 36 as a medic, serving through Europe after the invasion of Europe.
1907 Bayonet. 2nd Dragoon Guards. 1915. The blade has minimal pitting near the tip, its stained and has what appears to be the factory grind. One side of the blade has a 1915 date over the makers mark, Sanderson. The hilt has heavy staining and a little rust bleed with clear stamps to the pommel area...2DG, 419.Both wooden grips have staining and minimal knocks, no large chips etc. Top fixing button is loose and working. The leather to the scabbard has tight stitching and supple with faint stamps. The top chape has clear stamps ..2DG, 26. So its a matching regimental stamped bayonet, just a different rifle number. I have not tried to clean and it goes out the way i found it! Found recently during a Cardiff house clearance with the military Sirupate ive listed. NOT FOR SALE TO UNDER 18\'S AND UK ONLY. SORRY, NO INTERNATIONAL SALES.
1907 Dated British Army Dirigible \'\'Nulli Secundus\'\' Photo Post Card. First flown in 1907 with a public appearance at Farnborough in September 1907 that would match the cancellation stamp. Card is in good condition.
1907 Fighting Knife Conversion. Factory produced conversion of a 1918 Wilkinson produced 1907 bayonet. The blade has been ground shaped with one hell off a point and a false edge to the top, makers details are clear enough to the bottom of the blade. The 07 cross guard has been left ''as is'' and a very nice wooden handle added that goes completely around the tang. The leather scabbard is complete with supple leather and tight stitching. I have always myself believed this was produced in India going by the work on the dagger and scabbard, the scabbard does appear to be the type found with the ''Chindit'' daggers. But hey thats just my opinion having had this example for many years. As for condition its what you would expect to see when an item has been stored for may years without being touched or cleaned. I love it but its time for it to find a new home! NOT FOR SALE TO UNDER 18'S AND UK ONLY!

1913 Dated Military Telescope, Sig (MkIII) Also G.S. A well used Signals telescope made in 1913 by the firm of Ottway and Co, Ealing. With this comes its extra lens, marked ''low'', in leather carry case. The scope has both end caps, the leather body has lost its stitching due to shrinkage and has been repaired and both top loops are missing. The body does not have any dents, same goes for the three draw brass extensions. End extension has clear markings and date. The focus is sharp and free from any ''growth'' or chips to the lenses so perfectly sound for use. Just purchased these off a gent who's Grandfather used these during his service.
1913 Pattern Bayonet, 1916 Dated, with 1914 Pattern Leather Frog. Here we have a very nice untouched example still held in its period 14 pattern frog.

The cross guard and pommel again with most of the period factory finish with some slight rust bleed. Both wooden grips are in fine untouched condition, one slab has a rifle rack number stamp, A92. The leather scabbard is its period issued example with teardrop top stud and the bottom chape stamped \'\'RE\'\' for the Remington firm. There has been one knock causing a crease to the leather, one 3mm hole to the side only, crease has not gone through or split and does not flop over when bayonet is taken out, just a period accident usually caused from trapping in a door. The scabbard is held in its period 14 pattern frog complete with back strap. Its in nice supple condition with lots of use looking at the wear to the top hanging area, no repairs or loose stitching. The complete middle fixing strap and buckle i have not touched and will leave as is.

1930\'s German City Rathaus Meeting Hall Tile. During a renovation of a large city Rathaus, Town Hall, and the removal of a false floor in the meeting hall around 5000 of these tiles where found underneath. The workmen managed to take up carefully around 400 of them before a city official ''blew his top'' and ordered under supervision the destruction of the rest. I saw a couple of hundred tiles this example being one of them. Its in nice solid condition , could do with a better clean and with a little time the back will reveal the makers information, ''VILLEROY & BOCH, METTLACH''.
1930\'s German Hirschfanger, Hunting Dagger. Carl Eickhorn. A nice 1930's made hunting dagger in untouched condition, no cleaning and definitely no ''Brasso'' polishing!

The blade is a triple etched example with sharp detail including small arms, cannon, drums and scroll work with a clear 1930/40's pattern Eickhorn trade mark. Blade condition is very good with some staining and the just some minor water stains to the very tip. I have not tried to clean the blade and i believe with a little effort the blade will come up even better. Blade still has its period green washer. The leather scabbard has tight stitching until the top 10mm going under the top mount. Both brass fittings again with plenty of patina matching the dagger fittings. The blade stays proud of the top mount around 5mm, placing the dagger against the scabbard, side by side, there is around 2mm in size difference indicating at least some shrinkage or perhaps repair but i cannot find anything that's recent so its a bit of a mystery! I have taken this into consideration when pricing the dagger. NOT FOR SALE TO UNDER 18'S AND UK ONLY! PLEASE PROVIDE PROOF OF AGE.

1941 Dated Prismatic Compass and Personal Items, Caerphilly Veteran, Normandy. Purchased this little group last week from a family member, items belonged to his father who according to him landed in Normandy fighting through Europe. The compass is 1941 dated, most of its black finish intact, dial swivels and there is an air bubble to the inside. One period cigar box, found inside are a number of wartime coins mainly from Holland , also a couple of Belgium examples. Five wartime occupation notes, two German, one Dutch, one French and one Belgium. Three tokens one being a Saint Christopher charm. A leather coin pocket wallet. One boxed mini compass in its period tin box. A photo of the soldier wearing a 22 pattern tunic and sergeant stripes. The last item found in the box is a hand written poem titled ''The nightmare memory of the Frankenstein of Europe, Adolf Hitler'', one i have not come across before. Lastly there is an old RA embroidered handkerchief and a period pocket knife. During the purchase the family related that there father landed in Normandy, there is no name found amongst the group but when i inquired they said i he was called ''Eric Box'', they did not remember his regiment but stated he was not in the RA? I have added to the group the 3 postwar ration books found with the group , apparently the vets home address even though none have a ''Box'' Surname. So we do have a good 41 dated compass with what looks like the type of items the soldier would have in his pockets at the time and going by the different coins and notes he did go through France, Belgium, Holland and Germany, perhaps research may be possible.
1941 Dated Wehrmacht German Map. Europaisches Russland. Large map showing Europe and Russia and dated 1941.The condition is good with some storage marks and slight parting along the central folds.

1941 Luger Magazine, fxo-37. Black Widow. Would have been a very nice example if the bottom half of the base. So we do have a pretty nice example with clear markings and a strong ''free'' spring and i think priced reasonably considering the price these Black Widow types are going for.
1942 British Military ''Ditty'' Cloth Bag. In very nice unissued condition with a clear date and makers details stamped to the inside.
1942 Dated 52nd \'\'Lowland\'\' Infantry Division Scottish 22 Pattern Khaki Service Tunic. A 1942 , size 11, service tunic to a member of the 52nd infantry division. The tunic is in very nice condition with only one moth nip found where at one point both lower arms had metal insignia, perhaps Warrant Officer crowns, also leaving two corresponding holes where the badges where pinned. Clear label found inside. As seen the tunic has been stripped of all buttons and the bottom titles leaving the formation patch's in place. Worthy tunic in need of restoration.
1942 Dated and Named RAF Officers Jacket. Made from Barathea wool this named tunic has been stripped at some point of all insignia including the arm rank stripes. There is evidence of a ribbon bar and wings above the right pocket. All buttons have been changed and are now Queens crown examples and the period belt has a postwar type buckle added. At one point someone has repaired the side seam under the arm. So what we have is a period WW2 tunic with a named and 1942 dated inside label thats in need of a certain amount of ''TLC'' to bring this back for display. The name to the inside is G.S.Rollings, i have found one mention of a certain Flying Officer Rollings , service number 137953 of the RAFVR ''mentioned in dispatches'' in 1946 during the New Years Honour List! As for size i can give you approx only by using a tape measure when the jacket is lying flat! Armpit to armpit.....18.5 inches. along the waist belt.....18 inches. Top of collar to the bottom back....28 inches. I may add i cannot find any moth nips or tracking and the jacket will need an ''airing'' and an iron running over it as its been in a box for a few years!
1942 Dated British Entrenching Tool Set. This example has just been pulled out of a shed and this can be seen in the photos. The webbed carry case is dated 1942 and has some stains and storage marks. The wooden helve does have a faint makers mark and has been cut down i believe. There is a load of mud and dirt still covering the metal pick head and i have left it as is so no date to be found unless you want to clean the period muck off. Nice set in period condition, not mint but worthy of a little attention and would make a great display item.
1942 Dated British Tankers Holster. A used, factory modified first pattern, tankers open top holster with a dark green blanko to the front. The rear has its period web finish with plenty of black stamps and some staining. Inside the modified loop can be seen the date 1942. The cleaning rod was found in the side sleeve when i purchased the holster so it will be sold \'\'as is\'\'.
1942 Dated British Wolseley Pith Helmet. Produced by the firm ''Helmets Ltd'' and dated 1942, this helmet has not seen much service going by the condition. Its such a pity that at one point the left side has received a stain, i have not tried to remove but i do think its possible, other than that its a very nice example in a good 7-1/8th. The inside leather liner is supple as is the chinstrap and the nice makers paper label to the inside is a very nice extra.
1942 Dated Indian Manufactured Shorts. In nice used condition with makers mark and a clear 1942 date, buttons are miss matched. Size across the top is 15 inches, top to bottom 23 inches.
1942 Dated RAF Side Cap. In worn condition with a couple of small holes to one side, inside has a Glasgow makers stamp and a 1942 date. Its a size 7.

1943 British ''Theater Made'' Japanese Aircraft Technical Book. A very unusual book on Japanese aircraft, single seat fighters up to twin engine bombers. Not all aircraft mentioned have the technical information as it would appear the book was made in 1943 and information was not available, this is mentioned in the book. The whole book has the look of being made ''in theater'' with the binding made of string, certain diagrams of aircraft done in pencil, number of named aircraft without information, the use of typed printed sheets and a type of zerox diagrams. No printing information or department marks.Over 30 Japanese aircraft are mentioned. An interesting item for the aircraft fan!

1943 Dated British Gaiters. In nice used condition with numerous matching stamps to both gaiter's.
1943 Dated British MKII Army Helmet. The shell retains close to 95% of its period army green finish with a certain amount of dark patina. The inside 1943 dated liner has seen plenty of use, its complete with a clear makers mark and date. This helmet is interesting as it began life with a complete coat of black finish so factory manufactured as a home front rescue helmet. Its my opinion that it never left the factory but was reissued at source with an addition of the Army green paint with fine \'\'grit\'\' to the outer shell as the green paint is not hand painted but a professional factory spray. The shell as the liner is dated 43 with both chinstrap bales dated 1942. An interesting example as i do find lots of black home front helmets that where once early army helmets but not the other way round. The 1943 date would suggest a time when orders for Army helmets overtook home front needs at factory level.
1943 Dated British Winter Gloves. In unissued condition, clear matching makers and date stamp to the inside, hanging strap attached to both gloves in perfect condition.
1943 Dated Chocolate & Boiled Sweets Ration Tin. Large example with nearly all its finish and details printed to the lid. The warping to the tin lid i believe is period and the tin was issued as such.

1943 Dated Italian Education School Report. In very good condition with the boys details in full including his results. Born in 33 so the lad would have been 10.
1943 Dated Royal Naval Clasp Knife. A very nice and i think an example that has not been used going by the condition of the blade, only surface staining with no sharpening. One side of the blade is marked Rogers the other having a very clear 1943 date. The alloy handle has no scrapes, knocks or naming . All fitting shave a tight spring as does the end bolster!

1943 Deutscher Jugend Meister Award. Still found attached to part of the British Naval money belt is this well used but extremely rare 1943 dated Hitler Youth award. The condition is as seen in the pictures with loss of the red enamel to the bottom half of the diamond and only a certain amount of its period finish found around the date , the rear has lost its fixing pin and the veteran has mounted the badge to his belf by drilling holes eitjer side and using thread. I cannot find any markings to the rear of the badge. The belt was brought back by a Cardiff naval veteran who was ended up being docked in Bremen at the end of the war, the belt was complete with a number of high end naval awards pinned to the body of the belt, they have all gone now but whats left and seen in the photos is whats up for sale, even with the damage i think it would be near impossible to find another example.
1943 Engineer-In-Chief's, India. Pamphlet No 10. In nice complete condition.
1943 U.S War Aid British Officers Royal Artillery Battle Dress. In very nice condition with no moth holes but some minimal moth tracking. Both insigna match not only in material, felt, but also in fading so in my opinion period applied. This officers BD has gone through the usual tailoring expected with an open neck example. Nice clear labels to the inside and a clear 1943 date.
1943 \'\'Theater Made\'\' Knife. Scout. Hand made pair of knives with the handles being constructed from rings of leather, aluminium and hard plastic similar to the handles found produced ''in theater'' by serving soldiers. Cross guards are made from brass, larger example, and aluminium on the smaller one. The blades appear to be made from kitchen knives of sorts and both have had a name, Norman.A.Patrick, and 1943 date hammered with a tiny metal point. The scabbard has been made from three layers of leather held together with copper wire threaded through the body, boy scout emblem has been cut into the bottom area. Both strap poppers are working and complete. When i purchased the knife i didn't take much notice, finding that the set was completely hand made and going by the ring handles and the scabbard belt mount being the size for a 37 pattern belt i am of the opinion that the set might well have been made by a serving soldier for his kid which makes the set a lot more interesting and worth adding to a collection. I imagine the boy was well happy when his dad brought this out of his kit bag!!
1943, Jagdgeschwader 27, Kriegsweihnachten Commemorative Ceramic Plate. In very nice condition with no chips or cracks, colours are bright with crazing to the finish, to the rear are two small holes to the rim for hanging.
1944 Dated , Breeches, Corduroy ,Women\'s Land Army. These breeches are close to unissued going by the condition, only issue i can find is the lack of closing lace to the bottom legs!
1944 Dated British Survival Immersion Suit Bottoms. Been stuck in a bottom of a box for many years and in need of some TLC. The material is well wrinkled, there are a couple of holes and the ''lightning'' marked zips are most probably seized but perhaps. Give it a go and give it a good home.
1944 Dated Canadian 6X30 R.E.L. Binoculars. Can i say ''mint'' condition, well no but very close and hard too upgrade in my opinion. Clear details to the end caps, sharp focus with reticule, slight spotting only and it still has its period neck strap.

1944 Dated U.S.Army Personal Cooker. In well used but rather complete condition with good color and printed details. The outer bottom container appears to have been used for cooking going by the burn marks to the bottom. Bit smelly as ive had to drain the contents from the tank. Cooker would really clean up well with some warm soapy water.

1945 Belgium Made Battle Dress With Formation Patches. Belgium produced BD with a makers label dated 1945. Condition is not that bad, numerous moth holes and tracking to the nap of the material. An interesting note is the inside lining made from German tan herringbone material. Ive not managed to ID the two formation patches but perhaps as someone stated they might well be for the 9th Scottish Infantry Division, or not???? I purchased this a number of yeas ago as i found it interesting, now its time for a new home.
1945 Dated 8th Indian Division Battle Dress Blouse. This is a 1945 dated Indian made BD Blouse with a clear 45 dated stamp to the inside. The nap to the material is very nice with only one moth nip found on the front pocket. One button missing to a bottom cuff.The back shows ''tailoring'' with bottom pleats and a rear stitch line going down the back where the jacket was taken in. The inside rough lining is very clean and has two clear Indian stamps to one side, just some minor staining to the collar area. The two 8th Indian Division formation patches are hand sewn and do appear to be period applied as this blouse was lightly used going by the condition and i would presume its the type used as ''best'' for a soldier on his way home after the end of hostilities. Would be difficult to upgrade the condition on this example.
1945 Dated Bren Gun Action Cover. In very condition other than a few storage marks. This cover is dated 1945.
1945 Dated British Binoculars, 2.5 X 50. A very nice example of the type of small binoculars seen being used by paras and commando's.

The citation is made out to a member of Gren.Rgt. 975 who where part of the 367 Inf Div, at the time being active around Konigsberg. I presume he was wounded and evacuated by sea to Ponitz. This matches his British POW release document as Poniitz was part of the British Occupied Zone.
1948 British Troops Middle East, Rafah, Photo Album, Cardiff Family. A nice condition photo album from a Cardiff lad who served in The Middle East in 1947. Good amount of photos taken of him and his mates during service abroad, the rest being of his Cardiff family from the late 1930's till the 50's.

The internal liner system is complete including the top head pad with a very nice clear USAF stamp. Both ear phones are in nice condition with its internal loom, again the chinstrap is in nice condition. The microphone has no damage with its jack still in place against the helmets side. The visor is in used condition but has no chips or cracks and it still has its cloth cover strapped to the frame.

19th Centuary Spear Point Bowie Dagger. Arnachellum Salem. A very nice early spear point manufactured in India by one of the best firms producing hunting knives, spears and daggers, Arnachellum of Salem in Tamil Nadu. The marked blade is in nice condition considering its age with staining and some pitting from water damage, mainly to one side, point has worn from age. The round cross guard design matches the way the blade has been forged with a round end,its stained and taken on a dark patina. The pommel is shaped around the curve of the stag handle, metal is a bit misshaped from use but period as can be found on a number of Arnachellum examples. The stag handle has no chips or cracks.

19th Centuary Three Draw Pocket Telescope. Super little pocket telescope that needs some \'\'TLC\'\' . condition as found is very nice with the body covered in finely worked \'\'Baleen\'\' with hangers either end for a strap. The brass ends still have the original bright factory guilding without wear. No dents to the three draw tubes and no makers details. This comes with whats left of its period carry case, missing both end caps. The telescope has one issue, its missing its eye end lens for some reason, it should be an easy fix and im sure due to the condition of the item well worth it as the price will be right for such a sweet item. This item does not need to end up in a skip folks, that would be a shame!
19th Centuary Two Draw Binoculars. Thomas Harris and Son. A very nice early pair of Binoculars with a\'\' two draw\'\' system that i have not seen before. As for condition, the body has its very nice complete leather cover including the cover to the top lens ends, one dent from a slight knock. Both sun screens have some of its period black finish. Both lens cap ends are maker marked to Harris and Son. There is a problem to the thread when trying to focus the optics, one washer has deteriorated to the bottom draw so i need to pull on the top lenses whilst moving the middle screw to raise and lower. The optics do focus and are clear optically and other than the said problem are a nice displayable set which date to around the 1850\'s. The period leather case is complete with strap and a very nice paper makers label to the inside top. Thomas Harris had moved address from his shop in front of the British Museum around 1850 so this set would make a nice display with any Zulu War or Boer War collection. Im going to sell these cheap as i would like them to go to someone who would spend time in restoring such an unusual early set or use them for display as it would be a shame for them to end up in a skip!

1st Pattern Luftwaffe Dagger by Puma. In very nice untouched condition with all metal fittings having a certain amount of silver finish remaining and an, what i would call,overall cover of dark patina. The leather cover to the handle has only minimal wear to the high points and the wire is complete and without damage. The Puma marked blade is very clean with its factory grain present and only minimal surface marks that will clean up a treat in my opinion, blue leather washer to the top of the blade present. The scabbard has 100% of its leather covering with just a couple of wear marks and none of the screws have been tampered with. Chain is complete as is the 'OLC' and 'Ges Gesch' marked clip. If you wish a nice untouched example then this would fit the bill as ive had it for a number of years on my wall having purchased it in the Cardiff area from the family of a local veteran. FOR SALE TO OVER 18's AND UK ONLY.

Its my opinion the blade has been sharpened over the years, no clumsy sharpening marks to be found on either side. Cross guard is oval and flat without markings. The brass knurled grip has sharp detail, if this was a blackened version its all gone except for a small area at the bottom near the cross guard.

Cross guard again with nice detail and finish and produced without a ''release button'', it never had one! The scabbard again with nice sharp detail with both hanging bands having nice sharp detail with three grooves. Top scabbard screws appear never to have been messed with. The blade is not the usual KM type, its a factory produced example but unfinished near the tip, blade has full factory grain and the tang has its full billet clam.. All this makes me believe that this example was put together in 1946 for sale to the American GI market, or lets say even for the British Tommy market as souvenirs to take back home. This example shows all evidence of always being together. NOT FOR SALE TO UNDER 18'S AND UK ONLY!

Attributed Military Cross and Bar, 30 Corps Signals, Battle Dress Blouse. A 1941 dated New Zealand manufactured 37 pattern BD used by an officer, Albert Lawrence Field, who was part of 30 Corps Signals. The BD is in nice condition, its been used in the field, some grime to the collar area. Material has good nap with just a couple of tiny moth nips, hardly noticeable to the front. The back has some issues with one area having a couple of good chunks taken by moth, lets say much smaller than a 5p coin and an easy job if your good with a needle and thread. The area is stable and not weak. All insignia are period hand sewn and \'\'bedded\'\' into the BD material. The collar area has been opened up for officer use. Inside material is very clean with clear manufacture stamps. The collar area has some sweat staining from use as does the inner bottom edge. Ribbon bar is period applied. This jacket was purchased by a friend from the family who decided to sell after the bereavement of a family member. I have been chasing it for over 8 months, my friend was promised Fields medals and he wanted to add them to eh BD, I was put on the \'\'back burner\'\'. Last week my friend was informed by the family that they had sold the medals through an auction house, hence i can now offer here for sale. Not being a researcher and not willing to pay i can find little on Fields service except one mention in the Gazette supplement dating 1941 and a mention from another source that field was awarded an MC in the Middle East , June 17th, 1943 whilst an acting Captain in 30 Corps, Signals. Now is this the first award or second? As we know 30 Corps had an illustrious and hard fought war from the early campaign in the Middle East, Italy invasion, D-Day landings and Operation Market Garden. Fields ribbon bar suggests action in all! A Battle Dress worthy of any collection and with super research possibility.
Australian 1943 Dated Battledress Blouse. This example was sold recently with the named service drerss uniform, item number 57047. Please check the details on who once wore and owned this BD!

From the front the BD is in very nice condition with good nap to the material,all metal dished buttons present as are the two officers football buttons to the to shoulder straps. Nice period ribbon bar to a long serving officer. The back has a number of moth nips and the last photo shows the jacket looking through the back towards the sun, So for display this is a nice item and of course this is priced accordingly!
Australian Produced Sam Brown Belt Rig. Melbourne A very nice vintage Sam Brown belt rig including a nice sword hanger for a large sword and an unusual leather belt hanger loop with buckle that i have never come across before.

All where sealed taped as this one was until taking the photos you find below. The mask as expected is in unissued condition and is dated May 1939. Also found inside the box is its unissued carry bag and anti-dimming outfit. Now here is an interesting quandary with the bag being dated 1942, dimming outfit dated 41 and the top of the box stating packed in 1939? So my only conclusion is that at some point during the War the box was inspected and restocked!

British 1887 MKI Sword Bayonet. Enfield. Hope you like shed found bayonets as that's what i've got to offer you today. Came from the same area as the German 1898 i listed last week, same shed??? Not sure on that but the same ''walk in'' seller. Anyway this example has has a sleepy time for sure with the blade surviving very well having good finish and staining with a couple of good rust spots mainly to the bottom near the tip wear the blade has rested against the inside chape for years. Both sides of the blade have clear markings. The hilt has surface rust and the top pommel button has lost its head, it will need a good paraffin soak to get it loose. The 4 rivet handle has survived very well with no chips or cracks just one edge shrinkage. I can just make out a number stamped to the bottom tang and a clear rifle number to the cross guard. The leather scabbard is complete , metal fittings as the hilt covered in a thin layer of rust and the bottom chape just hanging on by a slither of leather. Not sure there's anything else i can add except if your into shed find early Victorian sword bayonets then this will fit the bill.
British 1887 MKIII Sword Bayonet. Wilkinson. A good example with the blade having a certain amount of pitting, one area near the tip where the blade would be held near the scabbard chape fixing pins, the other a third way up. One side of the blade has the Wilkinson name with a date with Vicky crown above, the second number to the date has not been stamped strongly so cannot be made out, perhaps 88. The other side has a clear WD and acceptance stamp. The cross guard and pommel again with some staining with the pommel having some pitting, spring works. The grips are tight with one knock and sharp detail. The leather scabbard has tight stitching and one area of weakness to the bottom area but no splits or cracking, Both metal ends again have staining and a certain amount of pitting. IMO the bayonet has received a clean at some point .
British 1903 Bayonet, Fighting Knife Conversion. Scarce example fighting knife converted from a 1905 dated 03 pattern bayonet, The condition is very nice with the blade having no pitting and a very sharp point, clear markings to both sides.

The cut down scabbard has supple leather with tight stitching. Both metal ends have taken on a nice dark patina with the top end showing evidence of a webbed frog having been present for a number of years, now sadly gone. I may add that the bottom chape is tightly secured to the leather but does bend slightly so i would be careful. According to Ron Flook\'s book on fighting knives these might well be WW1 conversions but does provide a really nice image of SAS members wearing such knives in the Aegean during WW2.

Material has slight staining and being a good amount of sun fade. The one remaining side button for the chinstrap is a black horn rifle brigade example.

British Officers Service Cap. A well used example with good clean material to the outside with one or two minor moth nips.

British Para Uniform Bits\'n\'Bobs. A little set of tropical gear worn by a para who served for 22 years, first tour being Borneo. Ive been buying strange bits of British gear off him over the years as he stalls at a little show local i do, didn't realize all i had purchased had once belonged to him during his service. He served from 1960 till 1982. You get two jungle green shirts, washed out labels, cut short along the bottom, he told me all his mob use to cut the greens down. One well worn shirt has his para wings and sergeant tapes. His 76 pattern No2 Dress shirt again with wings and tape. Two pairs of well worn Khaki drill 1950 pattern shorts, both dated 1967.

The lot could do with an airing as they have been in his attic for years till last Sunday. I do have his Surname and i can forward it on if wishing. The set would make a great tropical mannequin display as all you need to finish it off would be a pair of boots and beret!!
British Parachutist Helmet Lightweight. M76. In nice condition, its been well used as seen with the condition of the liner and straps. The outer finish is smooth, not the very rough finish found on later models but all liner bolts having been painted at the factory. No labels to be found inside. The homemade DPM cover was found inside the crown of the helmet and would appear to have had a net stitched over it at one point.
British Paratroopers Cloth Insignia, Pegasus and Wings, on Sleeves. This set a friend of mine pulled out of a Cardiff house last weekend. It would appear the sleeves of a BD have been cut off the uniform with the insignia still attached, only the top titles are missing. The insignia does have that ''embedded'' quality and i have no doubt that they are period applied the wing having a padded feel from the back of the sleeve material. Insignia has been hand stitched to the material and from cloth remains the titles appear to have had a red background.
British Paratroopers Helmet Shell. Shell has around 70% of its factory finish with rust bleed to the front and crown area, one dent to the top side. There are two of the three period liner bolts and back washers with the chinstrap bales. Perfect restoration project and even better if your into reenactment.

All three outside screw heads have a good amount of there dark finish as well. Inside of the shell again close to 100% finish, some paint loss to the outer rim. The liner system is a postwar example dated 1965, made by CCL and sized 7 and a quater. The padding has suffered from some heat damage, likely kept close to a heat source such as radiator or window during summer, no evidence of fire damage etc. No top pad to the inside crown. The webbed chinstrap system is complete and clean with a complete chin cup. I myself think the outer shell might well be a WW2 example but that's me, please make your own mind up before purchasing folks!

British Rigger Made DPM Chest Rig. 2nd Gulf Conflict. This chest rig is an obvious copy of the type used by British forces in the 90's and was recently given to me by a friend who went out to Iraq during the invasion in 2003. He and his whole section had these made by a member of his team who at the time worked for a Cardiff factory who produced combat gear. The condition is good with a certain amount of use including remnants of Iraqi sand. All closer snaps work on the front ammo pouches and side pockets as do the snaps on the top map pocket. Found inside where a couple of items he left in when he came back from his tour. Nice to find a rigger made example and would make a great display item with your Gulf kit.

I\'ve found one other mention in the 1945 Gazette for promotion to Captain and the award of his C.B.E. Im sure there is plenty more information to be had so a perfect research project if wishing.

British Wallet with Paper Death Notice\'s. Griffithstown, S.Wales. Not much to say about this little poignant item that was found recently during a local house clearance.

The album has a number of photos of Reid in uniform and a number of him with a bottle of beer, a couple of early group shots in the UK and then him and his wife enjoying life in post war Britain. Medals are mounted as worn by Reid and at some point typed a page of his life from birth including all his service during WW2 from Burma, Malaya and into Japan with the occupation Army. Pay book is only the outer cover with no pages indside.The last thing is a nice Japanese printed flag he picked up along the way, both corners have ties and there is some Kanji to one side, perhaps maker.

The documents relate to Jones during his service with the WAFF including notes on why he and his British friends are not being repatriated back to Blighty. A number of photos of Jones in uniform including one in slouch presume in Burma. Lastly and i find the more interesting is a letter from the Ministry of Pensions forwarding to Jones the Kings Badge for War wounded included is the badge. More research is advisable as having the badge would suggest that something happened to Jones during his service in Burma!

Finally to wartime photos, two with names of the soldiers including Caswell on the back. Nice group and worth further research.

Camouflage British 1943 Dated MKIII Steel Helmet The shell has id say over 95% of its rough factory finish to the shell, this has then had brush strokes of black paint added to create a camouflage pattern. This pattern has plenty of wear, aminly to the crown and of course the rim. The inside has nearly all its finish, the 1943 dated liner is in rough condition having lost its top pad, easy job to replace as this is the early screw in pattern liner. The chinstrap is complete and has plenty of elasticity left.

Candid WW1 Letter Home. 1/6 South Staffs, France 1915. A very candid seven page letter sent to a Miss Humphries , Newport, on the 10th of April, 1915 by Signaller Gamson of the 1/6 South Staffs Regiment. Gamson starts the letter by stating he can be perfectly candid as the censor does not read his letters! Ive taken some close up photos of his correspondence and i hope they help. Just a short note by me will add to his stories of trench life including having to lay new communication wire along the front as German shells had destroyed the previous wire and how he and a fellow soldier had to risk there lives in doing so avoiding German sniper fire. Also included is mention of casualties from sniper fire and there recovery and the various times sheltering from German artillery fire and trench mortars. He names a couple of friends hit etc. I have read numerous WW1 letters over the years, some can be candid to a certain degree but this letter by Gamson paints a vivid picture of trench life of the British soldier in 1915. Perfect research possibilities for sure folks! Just as a side note, many years ago i acquired a large lot of documents and personal items belonging to Gamson from a Newport house clearance, this letter i kept back due to the interesting nature of the correspondence held within.
Captured NSDAP Flag Photo. RAF, Alverdissen, 1945. Clear candid photo of some RAF personnel showing off there captured souvenir NSDAP flag.

Cardiff City Tramways Cromwell Fiber Helmet. I have been a lucky boy as this is the second example ive managed to have aquired, the first now resides in a Cardiff museum. The helmet itself is in very nice condition with no cracks or damage to the fiber body, all rivets are tight. The top liner retention screw is the type found on British paratrooper helmets and as you can see from the photos inside and out this screw has always been with the helmet. To the front rim is a clear Cardiff tramways stamp and numbered 297, so at least that number where issued. The inside liner system is sized 7, i cannot find a date but the liner is an early example with top donut ring. Inside shell has a nice clear Cromwell manufacturer paper label pasted to the side. No chinstrap. A scarce helmet to say the least.
Cardiff City Tramways Cromwell Helmet. A very rare helmet being a composite Cromwell Homefront helmet issued and stamped to the Cardiff City Tramways. Condition is very good indeed with no issues that i can see other than a missing part to the chinstrap. The liner is in used but complete condition and the early round top pad is very clean, too the side of the shell at the back is a very clean Cromwell manufacture paper label. This is the second such helmet i have been lucky enough to get my hands on in the Cardiff area, the first i purchased many years back and now sits in a local Cardiff transportation museum.
Cardiff WW2 KIA Medal Group with Buckingham Palace Note. SS Harmonic, 1943. U-172. Poignant group of medals belonging to a local Cardiff family named Dugine.

Harmonic was on her way back to Britain from South America. The three medals, his entitlement as found on the medal award slip are in good condition, might have been mounted for display at one point and the Buckingham Palace Sympathy message is in nice condition with Dugine's name and ship to the back. I also purchased from the family a mounted group of four medals to a Gunner A. Dugine who served in the RA from 42 to 47 as stated on his record service slip found with the medals, father of brother perhaps? Cardiff address found on the RA slip, 94 Wilson Road, Ely, Cardiff.

Cased Hindenberg Combatants Honour Cross With Swords, L.NGB. Scarce boxed award for the Hindenberg cross , not the usual red case as usually seen on the market. The box is in very nice condition with its black ''faux'' type material complete with just minimal storage marks and in need of a brush as this type of material does pick up dust etc. The back hinge is perfect with the front celluloid caped button being a bit stiff. The inside is clean with perfect detail to the script found to the inside lid. The cross itself has nice finish and is maker marked to the firm Christian Lauer Nurnberg . Ribbon seems to have sat in its same position in the box for a number of years.
Cased Matching 1943 Dated British Binoculars. Taylor-Hobson, No2 Mk3. Mint! Im not usually using the term \'\'Mint\'\' but this set must be one of the best ive had for sale for some years and is very close. The very clean case is dated 1943 as is the long strap and the binoculars. The actual binos have a very nice body with no wear the the \'\'crinkle\'\' finish and only some minor wear the the outer metal frame. Both end plates have full sharp details in white lettering including a 1943 date. No chips or cracks to the lens caps. The focus is very smooth with clear sharp vision, just the slightest of marks inside the lens area only. As mentioned above the case is maker stamped with a 1943 date as is the carry strap matching the date on the binoculars. The small web bino strap again in mint condition without issue. In my opinion the set has never been apart and would display very well or perfect to use!

Cased Military Goggles. A nice pair of goggles still found in its period tin,condition is unissued and the box has no dents/knocks.

Top of the box still has its silvered SS runes making the set displayable even with the damage.
CC41 Childs Blanket. In very nice condition with a clear CC41 label sewn to one corner. Condition is very good, no moth etc. Size is 26x33 inches.
CC41 Leather Hobnail Boots. I would call these new old stock as they have never been worn, I was tempted to polish these before taking the pictures but have left them in there natural state so you can see what your buying. All stitching is tight and the leather is supple enough considering they have never been polished or ''dubbed''. There are clear CC41 marks to the inside and a number code to the inside tops. The bottoms with nails are in perfect condition. These are size stamped 6.

Pommel has a nice amount of finish with a working fixing button. The wooden grips are in good condition, one side being near perfect with only staining, the other has a certain amount of old wear to the bottom edge with dark staining and patina. Considering if you can find an example this example is in very good collectable condition. Sorry no scabbard as i believe these where produced in leather and few have survived the ravages of time.
Chocolate Chip Uniform, Afgan Bring Back. The uniform is in nice used condition, all buttons would appear present, no holes, rips etc. The trousers have are stained from use. The size label states ''M'' for medium, no other makers details found. This pattern can be attributed to two countries, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait and Afganistan this example was brought back by a friend of mine from one of his tours of Afgan, he might have worn the trousers at one point. I would also if you don't mind like to say, may the gods bless you Mogsy, as he has recently passed away! I listed these believing the pattern was was Saudi and brought back from Iraqi, i have been informed these were produced in Afganistan and its no suprise as ''Mogsy'' did his share over there as well. WAS PRICED AT £90.
Churchill and Hitler Wooden Mantelpiece Match/ Fire Taper Holder. A nicely produced Fire Match wooden holder or perhaps a pipe stand with caricatures of Churchill to the front peering around the corner and a frightened looking Hitler hiding to the back.

The outside paint rates at over 95% with two knocks to the crown area. The inside has a complete and supple liner frame and liner with a very nice complete chinstrap. Nice to see in my opinion the splash of the light blue over paint onto the liner. I cannot find any makers marks or stamps. I may add that the three inner liner pads are present and the chinstrap over the peak is strong, i have left it ''as is'' from the time i found it a number of years ago.

As for size , well it fits my head so would say large.

Just as an extra note, the helmet weighs just over 1.3 kilos, thats around 2.8 pounds with rails and mount making its an XL size. This is a level IIIA and was produced with the intention of reducing overall weight by using newer materials.

The RS&S marked buckle is in nice sharp detailed condition other than having the central disc polished out, loadS of grime and patina as expected from a garage find.

Not something that turns up these days and a perfect display item with any DJ set up.
Deutsches Jungvolk Black Water Bottle, Canteen. Small size bottle with black felt cover. The cover has good nap to the material and two holes, one smaller moth nip and a bigger one to the size. I have not tried to open the side snaps, im sure these would have to be ''oiled'' for a time before trying. The leather is used but complete as is the top hanging clasp and chain to the top lid. No markings that i can see to the neck of the aluminium canteen. The side hole to the cover is an easy repair with a small piece of black felt being placed inside and under the period material. As with the bread bag, DJ water bottles are id say a scarce item these days and just whats needed for any ''youth'' display.

Early 20th Century Indonesian Bedok Cepot. Java. Overall length is 14 inches with the blade being just over 8 inches in length and 2.5 inches in depth. The blade has a patterned top with the village name to the end near the hilt, condition is stained with one minor chip to the cutting edge. The hardwood hilt has a nicely carved representation of an animals head with bone inlay for eyes. The hilt has damage from use with a part of the top edge having been repaired and the blade having paper wrapped around the tang for a snugger fit. The wooden scabbard again with a certain amount of damage having lost its top throat and a loose spine. These types of axe are used for household activities from food preparations, wood chopping and farm work so the damage seen would suggest this example was used and dates from the 1930's. NOT FOR SALE TO UNDER 18'S AND UK ONLY!
Early British Gas Mask and Case. 1941. Nice set with the bag in nice clean condition with clear makers marks and a 1941 date. The inside early tan gas mask, mix dates 1939/40, is clean as is the hose but the mask has suffered from storage along the rim. All back straps are soundly attached to the mask. The tan filter is also dated 1940 with the carry strap having as expected a 41 date. Comes with the set of eye shields found inside.

Early British Metal Water Bottle, Indian Pattern? Indian pattern is the closest model i can find, perhaps Boer War? Anyway the condition is very good with the only slight split being along the spout, no dinks/knocks to the body.
Early DDR M56 Helmet and Strichtarn Cover. 1959 Dated. An early example, dated 59, with its early chinstrap system without the leather cheek protectors and early liner. This example was found with its camo cover attached and from the condition of both helmet and cover this set has been together for many years. I have not tried to lift the cover completely off, just around the sides to show you the finish of the helmet underneath. From what i can see the finish to the helmet shell is over 90% complete with a minor spotting of rust from the cover, cover is complete but dirty. I can feel underneath the cover the three rivets as found on these early M56 helmets. The inside liner system again in used condition with verdigris build up from storage. Liner is complete with its chord but a bit stiff, chinstrap system complete . The inside of the shell has most of its finish and a paper label with owners name. The side of the shell is stamped with the Roman numeral code II over 9 over the date stamp 59. Not a mint example but one that's in untouched condition.
Early DJ Youth Marching Band Photograph. An excellent photo post card showing a group of young DJ marching band members. The detail is just super, just check out those DJ rune badges to the sleeve! Condition is very good,
Early Egyptian Forage Cap A very nice Egyptian military forage cap made from a heavy tan weaved material with the liner being constructed from various scraps of material and what appears to be plastic bags. The early cap badge, now obsolete, was placed onto the cap before the lining was added in the factory. An interesting cap and would fit into the wars with Israel.
Early German Dust Goggles. Would be a perfect display item on your combat helmet with some TLC sorting out the central arm, one lens cracked.
Early Heer Aluminium Belt Buckle. Front of the buckle is close to mint condition with sharp detail, no knocks or scuffs to the front design. The rear has its fixing prongs and the molded catch has no damage, buckle has been used as seen by the belt catch marks and the black marks left by an early private purchase walking out belt.
Early Hitler Sympathizers Walking Stick Badge. This scarce sympathizers badge is in very nice condition with a good amount of its period finish intact and removed carefully from a period walking stick.
Early Hitler Youth Dagger With Motto. Gottlieb Hammesfahr. Blade is complete with minimal sharpening and staining, makers stamp is very clear with the Blut und Ehre Motto having faded but still visible. Blade leather washer is missing. The handle has no cracks or chips with the central membership badge moving slightly in the grip which i do like to see. At some point the handle has had three stones professionally added, one is missing leaving to view the drilled area where the stones where added. Pommel and cross guard has most of its plating present, missing as usual to the side where the closer strap rubs. The steel scabbard has around 75% of its period finish, top leather hanger and a repaired working top snap strap. As for the addition/personalization, its my opinion its wartime done, im sure that any postwar work would have some sort of denazification to the diamond. But thats only my opinion folks! NOT FOR SALE TO UNDER 18\'s AND UK ONLY!
Early Hitler Youth Sympathizers Badge. Nice early tin badge in the shape of a HJ flag, some of the gold wash has gone from the surround but the paint finish to the front flag is complete, rear has its period fixing pin.
Early Imperial Sand Cast Core EK1, SW Maker. A very nice early Imperial Iron Cross made by the firm SW and covered in lots of lovely patina, well lets just say its not been cleaned for a very long time. The sand cast core has two cracks and very nice finish. Frame is tight and the rear has its period hardware.
Early Large, 1938 Dated British Military Clasp Knife. This is an early production example, collectors state WW1 period but apparently according to ''Flook'' produced up to 1938. This one has had a lot of use with the blade having been sharpened and stained as is the can opener and spike. The blade has clear Rodgers makers details and the tin opener has a good 1938 date stamp under the cross and star stamps, sorry but just found this so no photo. The marlin spike has a clear broad arrow inspection mark. The grips have had good use but there are no cracks or chips to the body, just slight lifting along the inner edges. The copper hanging ring is complete. Springs are tight!
Early Military Sirupate Kukri. The blade has minimal staining with just a couple of tiny rust bleed visible and what i would class as its period grind to the cutting edge. The blade length is just over 14.5 inches, widest width 2 and three quarter inches with the narrowest blade width of 1.5 inches. Width of the spine at the base is around 9mm. Its a monster blade for sure. The wooden handle has over the years received a number of repairs but is complete with the steel butt plate being replaced with a brass example. The period sheath is complete with tight stitching, only the top of one side with a split to the seam. At some point a brass hanger has been added for suspension from a belt , the two holes to the front would suggest a removed badge of sorts. Although this example has been through the wars over its life its still a very nice early example of a large military Nepalese Sirupate and im sure worthy of adding to a collection. This was recently found during a clearance in the Cardiff area with the Dragoon Guards 07 bayonet ive listed. NOT FOR SALE TO UNDER 18\'S AND UK ONLY. SORRY NO INTERNATIONAL SALES!
Early NSDAP Leather Cross Strap. Non maker marked example with early metal snap ends, leather is in supple condition. This type of strap could have been used by any of the TR paramilitary organisations of the time.
Early Pre War NCO Shoulder Straps, Pattern M36/40. A well used matching pair of early boards with pointed ends. At one point the chain stitched numbers where removed for future use due to new regulations. Condition i would rate at very good with just a couple of tiny moth nips to the underneath.

Early SS Dagger by Robert Klass. NO PAYPAL PAYMENT WITH THIS ITEM. The blade is in fine condition with nearly all its factory cross grain, some minor surface staining and the usual runner marks from the inner scabbard mounts. The motto is 100% crisp and dark as is the makers details and logo. The early solid nickle cross guards look excellent with just the most minor of surface marks and tiny knocks to the top back example from being worn. Lower cross guard is stamped ''I'' for district Munich. Top nut has minor ''knotch'' marks only. The dyed wooden handle has cracking and chipping to the top area, nothing unusual for early grips as the manufacture process had these wooden handles boiled in black dye. The enamel top SS button is in perfect condition with the grip eagle having nice sharp detail. Handle and cross guards have a nice tight fit. The early anodized scabbard has most of its period finish other than a small area near and running under the bottom chape, this has been cleaned back as the chape has been removed evidenced by the two bottom screws having marked threads. Top fittings are very nice with unmolested screws. Bottom chape ball has had a knock. This comes with its period black dyed leather hanger. Dagger fits tightly into the scabbard. IM SORRY TO SAY I CANNOT EXCEPT PAYPAL PAYMENT AS I AM ON A SMALL COMMISSION FOR SELLING THIS ITEM AND CANNOT EXCEPT THE ''PP'' CHARGES. PAYPAL WILL BE POSSIBLE IF YOU WISH TO PAY THE CHARGE FOLKS.

Nice early helmet with the shell being a wartime Quist example painted in a grey finish, 100% complete with minor marks from use and storage.To the inside side is a clear Q66 stamp with the rear having its lot number IN223. The liner system again an early example with supple complete leather and the use of a heavy horse hair padding running along the inside heavy card liner frame not the usual orange foam type. The chinstrap is supple and complete. The liner pins are the type where the arms are peened over.
Early WWW2 British AFS Tunic. Early pattern tunic worn by the AFS at the beginning of WW2 before the service became the NFS. The tunic is in good condition with all buttons and its top collar hook but the material has suffered from moth graze and a couple of moth nips from poor storage. The buttons have been sewn into the tunic before the liner was added so a nice sign of this being a period AFS example, id say the front cloth breast badge has been added postwar. As for size id say small to medium. Even with the graze to the material,material nap is pretty good this one will display well with any home front collection.
East German AK47 Bayonet. In super condition, blade marks to the tip area only from scabbard removal. No markings or numbers of any kind, with the black grips and green webbed straps im guessing East German.
East German, DDR, Naval Uniform. This little set comprise of hat and jacket, both are in nice condition, the jacket has a certain amount of what i would call ''fur balling'' from the material being of a low standard,remember school uniforms!!

Eastern Block Padded Tankers Helmet. I would say this example has never been issued, just some storage marks.

Enamelled RAD Officers Cap Badge. In very nice condition with undamaged clear enamel to the front, rear has both its fixing pins.
Enfield Rifle Oilers, MKII and MKIV. Couple of oilers i just found in a box and luck enough one is a MKII which would date it at being a Victorian example. The MKII has an armourers stamp to the top, looks like,N over 90, the bottom having a ''WD broad arrow'' stamp and inspection mark , crown over B5. The MKIV at the bottom is stamped with a broad arrow and an inspection stamp , crown over AH13.
English Civil War Armour Plate Section. Five sections of armour plate that i think would have fitted on the top of the arm under the shoulder plate. All pieces are hand forged with the larger top two sections held together with rivets, the other two are together but held by one rivet and one free section. Not 100% clear how it goes together but im sure its close looking at the photos ive provided. As for period, well the item title states English Civil War, this is a guess on my part but im sure im in the right time frame. I would like the new owner to be satisfied with his own conclusions before purchase. Width of the upper most plate measures around 9 inches across with the complete section from top to bottom measures just over 9 inches. Just as a side not i found this last year during a day trip to my local flee market and was locally found in the Chepstow area.
Erel Commercial Lightweight Private Purchase Army Helmet, A commercial produced helmet by the prestigious hat maker Robert Lubstein who's company name Erel can be found stamped to the liner. The Vulkan fiber shell has close to 98% of its factory finish with no cracks etc. This helmet left the factory as a double decal Army example but im sorry to say that at some point the tri color decal was completely removed and the Eagle decal has been denazified. Interestingly there is such an Erel example in the Ken Niewiarowicz book on Helmet decals with this exact type of eagle being used. The inside has a very nice supple liner with clear Erel makers stamp and the complete supple chinstrap with roller buckle.

Factory Denazified War Merit Cross with Swords, First Class. 57 Pattern. Very nice cross with a good amount of its inner frosting and burnished highlights. The rear has its period hardware. The central swastika has been factory removed leaving a nice cross hatched pattern turning the medal into a 57 pattern. When i purchased someone had glued the swastika from a DAF stickpin badge to the front section trying to deceive and unsuspecting collector, i removed but some remnants of glue remain, this area needs a clean to show all the cross hatched pattern.

Family Medals. Gulf War and WW1 Pair. Cardiff. The Gulf War medal relates to an ex RAF member and Police officer who worked for BAE systems during the conflict. The boxed medal has his details along the edge...MR R THOMAS BAE, details also found on the back of the medal box. This comes with the gents passport , all stamps relate to visits in Saudi Arabia in the 90\'s, his police federation card for South Wales dated 79 and his personal \'\'skilled at arms\'\' booklet dated 1987 from his time serving in the RAF. The other \'\'bits n pieces\'\' all relate to his service during his time as a Police officer, RAF service member and time in the Gulf. Also found was a WW1 pair to his Grandfather that are also unmounted and in very nice clean condition. The details around the medal edge states...L-11207 DVR E.THOMPSON R.A. This little group i purchased off the son last week in the Cardiff area.
Family Medals. WW1. Cardiff. This broken set i purchased off the family last week when they turned up at the center. They had no idea who they belonged too, i purchased out of the boot of a car what i deemed related to the veteran. You get the lot as seen in the photos.
Father and Son Artillery Grouping with Death Plaque. This is a small grouping of items that where found during a recent house clearance in the London area. The framed death plaque is named to a Leonard Arthur Rayner who as a member of the 2nd Bat Honourable Artillery Company killed in Belgium in 1917 aged 30. The frame has never been touched, plaque always mounted inside, id say its the cleanest ''death penny'' i have seen. The rest of the paperwork relates to his son who obviously followed his fathers path and joined the RA during WW2. From the photos it would appear he joined the ranks then received an officers commission and fought with the 8th Army. Id say he went through North Africa as there is a 1943 dated Gezira sporting club Race brochure amongst the items and of course some items relating to Italy. The large framed photo of the son does show him wearing a ''Mentioned in dispatches'' oak leaf so action during his time is likely but im sorry to say i cannot find the sons name amongst the group. A little research should be able to find the sons wartime details. As mentioned this is new to the market, my local house clearance guy sometime does a clearance in London when they have clients from South Wales.
Female Customs Cap Insignia. Scarce pattern machine woven ''Zoll Dienst'' Cap insignia. Condition is very good.
Female Flakhelfer Photos. BDM? Two personal photos showing a female member of the RADwJ wearing her new Flakhelfers two piece uniform. The RADwJ badge is clear at her neck so my speculation that the girl might well be a BDM member might be valid. Nice uniform detail.
Female RADwJ Rank Brooch Third pattern convex metal brooch with one slight knock to the top left corner. The back has a 1941 date and makers details running under the fixing pin.

First Aid Party Helmet. A well used zuckerman helmet issued to a member of a First Aid Party. The helmet shell has had a coat of flat black finish painted over the grey factory paint. The hand rendered ''FAP'' letters are done in a silver finish. The inside retains its grey factory finish with the liner system being complete but a bit hard. As these Zuckerman helmets where never issued with a chinstrap this example comes with a home made strap.

Back hinge is tight and the round front button is working. The inside again in very nice condition with its undamaged cloth hinge, clean top material and clean bottom cushion with just minor staining.
First Class Iron Cross. Relic condition iron cross that in my opinion still has a certain amount of appeal to the collector. The Iron centre has a very good amount of its period finish with the details still being strong and the frame is tight without knocks. The rear has its period catch and top hinge but the pin has been lost. Cannot find a makers mark.

Its in as found condition with plenty of patina and loss of finish to the metal. One corner button has gone to the top left of the plate, the chain appears to be complete length and period to this example.
Flag Lieutenant Marked 6X30 Binocular Case. A well used leather case for a set of Ross 6X30 binoculars. The case has three large broad arrow marks similar to those used on Royal Naval equipment. The top of the case is marked ''Flag Lieut'' to one side and the large letters ''F'' and ''L'' either side of the broad arrow, also found are the numbers 5187. Other number 627 can be found scratched under the buckle to the front. To the inside along the cover edge can be found a number and i believe a name in pencil, i myself cannot make it out. So down to condition, case is supple, all stitching tight, closing strap is supple and complete with lots of use, both side studs are present as is the original strap but this has come apart from heavy use and bad storage. Inside red material is maker marked , complete and well used. Perhaps i should have cleaned the case a bit, will clean up very nicely, but having just found it in one of my boxes i wanted to get it up for sale as its nice to find a RN example with the extra bonus of being marked to an officer on an Admiral's staff.

The brass chinstrap with imitation scales has its inner leather strap complete with buckle.

French Third Republic Fire Brigade Ceremonial Helmet. A very straight and fine example of a ceremonial helmet dating from around 1874 and in the design of a ''casque de Dragon''.

The inside has a very nice complete officers type liner thats in supple condition.
French WW1 Adrian Helmet Shell. Well used with a good amount of its late war hand painted grey finish. Please check photos for other details.
French WW1 Adrian Helmet. Helmet shell has had a late war rough hand painted finish over the factory paint, id say this remains around 95% intact, shell has three minor knocks to the body, type of knocks found from a well used combat helmet, hard to see in the photos. The front badge is the original period example. The inside skirt has also had this second coat of rough finish up to the liner system. A nice touch to the paint is the wear mark to the peak where the owner has taken the lid off and on his head many times during its life on the front line. The liner system including the corrugated frame is complete with the leather in supple condition, there is a black shoe lace as a tie! The period factory finish can be seen to the crown but i have not tried to lift up the tongues to try and find any markings. The chinstrap is close to its full length but missing its tip and end where it would have fastened to the chinstrap bale. So a very nice untouched example and a perfect battle used steel helmet from WW1.
French WW1 Adrian Steel Helmet. Hemet has received a flat coat of horizon blue paint over its period dark grey finish at some point, one dent to the side and its original period front badge.

French WW1 Adrian Steel Helmet. The shell is in nice condition with no knocks to the body and over 95% of its second dark over finish remaining, the first light blue finish can be seen under the second coat.

Front Seam, Fixed Bale, M1 Steel Combat Helmet with Cross of Lorraine Liner Lets start with the Firestone marked liner as in my opinion its the best bit. It would all seem to correspond to a late 43 or early 44 date of manufacture with steel coated liner washers, trimmed neck suspension band, nape strap without buckle,flat khaki liner tightening lace and the light khaki strapping. The leather chinstrap is in supple condition with all metal components made from brass. The liner is in well used condition with plenty of grease and staining from use, all webbing is still attached to the side rivets. You might notice the well used sweatband is fitted in a backwards position and im leaving \'\'as is\'\', the way i found it and to tell the truth does appear to have been in this position for quite some time. There is a faint name to leather of the band but i cannot make it out. The inner has some green paint splatter near the peak. The outer paint finish does have some paint loss as expected from use, no cracks or chips to the body. At some point this liner has had a red Cross of Lorraine hand painted to the front. It has wear consistent with a certain amount of time and use. The steel, fixed bales, front seam shell is again i would suggest dates from 43 to early 44 with a faint heat stamp to the inner front of the shell, i cannot make it out. There is one knock to the crown and the shell still has a very nice amount of its period cork finish. At some point the outside and inside of the shell has had a second coat of dark green finish added. No chinstrap present.

The back has his fellow hut members signatures and camp details. This camp was set up by the British Occupation army of the Rhine to hold suspected war criminals, NSDAP and State officials. Nice piece and perhaps worthy of further research as there are numerous names to the back.
German Regiment Marked french 1886 Chassepot Bayonet. This example has been reissued to German rear echelon troops at some point, no modifications to the bayonet but the cross guard is clearly marked,117.L.I.4.244.

The cross guard and pommel have taken on a dark patina, flash guard has some minor knocks as usually found on these WW1 period items, top button in working order and a clear inspection mark can be found to the top. Wooden grips are nice with minor bruising and one minor crack near the back screw. The steel scabbard has all its factory finish except for under the leather frog and is a matching marked Mauser produced example. The frog is a very nice period example, supple with tight stitching and clear makers details for a firm from Berlin, some one has scratched there name to the back. All in all a very nice example and even better being a matching set! NOT FOR SALE TO UNDER 18's AND UK ONLY!

Glamorgan Civil Defence Ambulance Driver Battle Dress. A wartime example with all insignia hand stitched except for the CD breast badge being machine stitched to the pocket.

Fasterns have been privately added to the bottom for a more comfortable fit.The inside label has no date but the ARP code 57 makes this a period WW2 example.
God Save The King Banner. In well used condition with one rip to the top left corner and a couple of small fraying areas. The size is 70x37 inches. I was'st sure on the date, WW1 too WW2 but having recently viewed the VE day celebration footage recently aired i spotted the exact type being flown out of one of the house windows so i can say without doubt its at least WW2 period.

Green Heer Steel Buckle. GB-40 Marked. Gustav Brehmer produced steel buckle with close to 100% of its period green factory finish except for the highlights as expected for an example thats been worn in the field. Just under the back fixing prongs and bar is a clear stamp \'\'GB\'\' above a \'\'40\'\' date. Its my opinion t with a little search on the internet these 40 dated GB buckles are usually found to have been worn by DAK troops in North Africa.

Grenadier Guards Shoulder Titles. Four different manufactured titles that are in good condition.
Ground Rohm Dagger. Epack. Dagger is in good condition with the blade having two ''nicks'' to one side, staining and a nice clear motto with a good amount of dark finish to the letters. The E.P.&S motto is clear enough with just minor rub! The opinions of a couple of dagger ''heads'' on the Forum, Wehrmacht-Awards.com, suggest the blade once had a Rohm inscription having been ground clean ''at home''. Plenty of evidence of file marks running up the length of the blade on that particular side. The cross guards, top and bottom, are in nice condition with just minimal staining, ive not tried to clean and one side having the letters ''No''. Top fixing button appears unmolested, if its been apart then it was carefully done. Wooden handle has a couple of hairline cracks to the surface without chipping and one stain to the bottom front, color in nice and bright. Both emblems are period to the piece. Now for the ''rub''! The scabbard has had a really noticeable postwar coat of black paint to the body with the bottom fitting taken off as both screws show evidence of tampering, top seems fine. Bottom ball has the usual dent found on many period examples. According to members of the forum where i posted this dagger for opinions state that the scabbard is not an Epack example but i may add the fit is very tight. So not the best and certainly not the worse SA dagger ive had for sale , it has certain issues that i have made clear and of course its a ground Rohm. NOT FOR SALE TO UNDER 18'S AND UK ONLY!
GSG9 Elite Counter Terrorism Helmet. Super condition example with close to 100% of its period rough factory finish to the shell and liner pins.

Heer Aluminium Belt Buckle and Leather Tab. Nowa-1937. Scarce Nowa produced buckle with a 1937 date. The condition is used for sure with all the green finish gone from the buckle face, some remnants can be seen around the dots. Detail is sharp but the eagle has lost some detail as expected from lots of use. The inside has both fixing prongs and most of its factory green finish. The leather tab is complete and supple with clear details to the top for the firm Nowa, Hamburg. This buckle came with a really shortened military belt, child size and in my opinion the buckle had been together with the belt for a long period. I have not taken photos but this belt will be added with the buckle when posted out to the new owner.

The eagle as seen is machine stitched to the material with one fold line running across to the top. To the rear can be found some of the jacket lining.
Heer M40 SD Combat Helmet. EF64. The paint finish on this example i would rate at around 80% with the wear having a dark bleed from the metal coming through, one side near the crown has more bleed showing from storage. The decal is close to 95% complete with a certain amount of overall wear but details are clear. All liner pins are tight. The inside liner has seen some action and there is a split to the front edge and one finger has come adrift but still attached to the string, The string used appears to be a shoe lace and in my opinion would be period as the damage and shrinkage caused to the back of the liner, perhaps blood trauma, would strongly suggest. No chistrap found with this example. The back Lot number is 855 and the makers code EF64.
Heer M44 Breast Eagle. In nice unissued condition.

Heer Single Decal M42 Combat Helmet. Ckl64. Shell has around 99% of its factory finish and the decal i would rate at around 70% complete. The decal at some point has been touched up to the right wing side and a number of chest feathers, the swastika has been worn away, deliberate perhaps? The leather liner is complete and in my opinion the period example with its original liner string and a pencil named to one side. The three liner pins are original to the helmet with two having no evidence of being messed with but the back has lost its washer but that should not be an issue as i have had a few untouched period wartime examples with one missing washer. There is also a name penciled to the side of the shell. The back has a Ckl64 mark and Lot number 2975. I must add that at some point the helmet has received either a thin layer of lacquer or a reissued thin coat of green to the outside shell and inner skirt with the decal having been painted around.Inside crown has been left with its original factory finish The finish being painted around the decal has me scratching my head, usually a postwar layer of lacquer would also cover the decal?? I mention the above as full disclosure is in every bodies interest and hey your lucky i collect and love German combat lids!!

Hitler Youth Belt and Buckle. This example recently turned up at my local flee market and was obviously used for many years post war by the veteran who brought it back. Condition is, well lets put it at ''Garage find'' but still has a certain amount of charm especially to a guy like me who's into social history. The owner has repaired the buckle for wearing and at one point the leather had loads of badges pinned as a ''hate'' belt. When i was a lad the local builder in the village wore a very nice WW2 Denison smock when working on the building sites, years later i found out he dropped into Arnhem with this smock! There where loads of veterans at the time wearing pieces of there kit to work. If only i had asked Ken if this young history fan could have his smock!!

These have a certain amount of wear as seen by the missing corduroy around the crotch area only, all buttons present, non are HJ marked examples as i pressume buttons are replaced from time to time, both rear buckles present. Inside lining is complete but i cannot find a makers tag. Measuerments with a tape measure from one side to the other laid flat is good size 17 inches. May i add the white ball found in some of the images are due to a problem with my camera lens and does not show up on the actual shorts, time for a new camera i belive!! Was priced at £180....
Hitler Youth Dagger, Emil Voos. It would appear that someone tried to save a battered relic dagger, some makers details for the Voos firm visible, adding a handle and using a postwar manufactured scabbard. Not much i can add other than the blade in my opinion once had the HJ motto running along the other side, oh! and the top fixing popper on the scabbard is working.
Hitler Youth Dagger, M7/80, Gustav C. Spitze, 1940. This example was brought to me yesterday by a scrap dealer who found it amongst his scrap! The dagger is in good condition considering what its been through. The blade has some staining and dirt, top side even having some factory grain, the other side has a strange faint grind mark but cutting edge has not been over sharpened. Period leather blade buffer present. The hilt has some period finish under the verdigris with, as expected from a used example, a rubbed area where the closing strap holds against the pommel. The handle again full of dirt with the diamond having been forced out by the returning veteran, please see the remnants of the diamond fixing prong poking out. During the denazification the grip has been cracked, this is barley noticeable and i only spotted it after taking the photos. The steel scabbard has close to 50% of its factory black finish mixed in with rust bleed, leather hanger and closer strap is supple with a working top button missing its head.

From the same source in Koblenz as the other \'\'Youth\'\' trousers im listing. The color of the material is black rather than dark blue that would suggest these being work by a DJ leader as seen in many photos but without a label and the buttons not being HJ/DJ marked examples i can only speculate but im sure im in the right \'\'ball park\'\' .

Well we are getting close to a textbook example even without label. Perfect display with any HJ/DJ leaders outfit!
HJ/DJ, Black Corduroy Breeches, HJ Stiefelhose.

The bottom legs have all brass grommets with extra side button for the boots. All buttons are present and all are marked HJ/DJ. The inside label can be see but not read due to the dye. Everything is textbook even down to the period dyeing and would look great on display with your HJ or DJ kit. As for size folks this will be an approximation only!

Large British Paperwork Grouping, N.Africa, Italy and Austrian Occupation Commission.. This large lot belonging to Lieut T.E.Evans, 76 H.A.A.Regiment R.A. was found a number of years back during a Vienna house clearance in Austria.I believe the veteran settle for a number of years after his service in the country being attached to the Economics Division, Allied Commission To Austria. As you can see there is a lot of items and i will try and itemize as much as i can...... Around 30 military theme photos from his service in North Africa and Italy and around 50 military theme negatives, they do seem different to the photos mentioned above. Many love letters and messages from his future French wife who worked for the American army just after the war, i think they married in 1947. 10 x WW2 Italian military themed post cards and a 1943 dated German Newspaper ''Das Reich''. 17 x Brochure/booklets on life during occupation such as travel guides of Tunisa, Sicily, Rome and Austria etc. These include menus from certain cafes, dance halls and other entertainment facilities. Also a large Daily Express ''War Map'' and the ''Eighth Army'' photo booklet. A number of official documents related to his work including a large two page document headed ''Austrian chancellory'' where he is in a meeting with the Austrian Government, he has penciled in red around his name! Lastly a good amount of letters, photos and documents related to his wife and correspondence between him and an American officer Clifford R.Moore who he met in Rome during his service with the US 5th Army. Moore on his return to the States worked in the US District courts. Letters even include a conglaturation from Moore on his wedding and could he get some nylons sent over for his wife. Anyway there is more but im going to leave that to the future owner as there's lots of hours of research possible if so inclined. Please be aware that this lot weighs in at around a kilo or more when i post.
Large British Photo Grouping. Stalag 18A, Niklansdorf, Austria. Over 120 photos related to early camp life in Stalag 18A taken by a British POW. Photos show a range of activities including sports, pantos, concerts and daily life. Also found are a few large studio type photos of some POW's, mostly having a German studio stamp to the rear and some pencil annotation. A number of years ago i was lucky to purchase a large grouping to a local Welsh RAC member who was captured at Dunkirk and sent to Stalag 18A, nobody was interested in purchasing this large group that included more photos, documents, paybook and medal so i split the photos and kept this lot for myself. The rest sold a number of years ago. From reading a little it would seem the prison camp had quite an easy going attitude to camp life including the use of cameras and the prisoners able to work in the local industry, all changing a few years later. This early mob held at the camp where a mixture of Commonwealth and British service men who where captured at Dunkirk and the loss of the Greek island including New Zealanders and Australians. Interesting group of photos showing a New Zealand Maori dance taking place. A super group and well worth more research.

The flask does not have a makers mark but from a quick search of the old internet this example is made by the firm Hawksley!

Large Dedicated Imperial German 1913/14 Dated Officers Mess Silver Topped Glass Inkwell. A very nice example of a large glass inkwell with silver marked lid the top being marked for an officers mess and dated 1913/14. To the back of the lid under the hinge are clear silver 800 with Imperial crown and a makers marks. The glass body is without damage, no chips or cracks, the only damage being a small chip from the actual removable glass well, this does not detract from wat is a very nice example. I belive the silver mark relates to a firm called Franz Mosgau from Berlin.

Named is Corpl Payne, there is a sergeant Paye who was killed during the action and Pte Meredith who was wounded in China. Time frame and rank would suggest it is the fellows in the photo.

Large RAF Messhall China Mug. In very nice condition with no chips or cracks.

Late War German Helmet Chinstrap, ftb44. An unissued example, buckle has nearly all its grey finish, leather is in sound supple condition with a certain amount of crazing to the black finish.
Late War M38 Luftschutz Gladiator Helmet. This particular helmet has at some point gone back to the factory, striped of components and refinished in black with the addition of a very late war fabric liner and vinyl coated fabric chinstrap. The finished helmet received a new decal with inside rear instruction label stamped in white paint. The liner system with card frame has been riveted in place surviving in nice clean condition, all liner pin heads used are without factory paint finish. The overall finish with decal are close to 100% complete. The helmet shouts out late war \'\'utility\'\' manufacture.
Late War M40 Luftschutz Beaded Helmet. Q64. The condition of this example would be rated at close to mint, perhaps unissued. The outside factory finish is close to 100% complete with minor scratches from storage and a little amount of rust spotting underneath, again from storage. The pins are very tight with two having black colored heads with the back one being blue. These pins have not been messed with and correctly factory installed, just happened that the pin box had a mix of black and blue head pins. The inside finish again close to 100% with a clear rear stamp and lot number for the Quist firm. The liner and chinstrap have never been worn in my opinion just some staining along the edge of the liner from being stacked on top of another lid. The liner string is the period factory issue example. All in all a very nice helmet in super condition.
Late War Patronenkasten 41. MG34/42 Steel Ammo Tin. Dunkelgelb. This late war example has had lots of use but remaining factory finish is very nice with lots of wear, patina and buildup of verdigris from time and storage. I have not tried to clean but this might be something you wish to do to bring the finish back up. The design and construction would suggest production from late 1944 to 45. There is a faint makers stamp and date to the top but do not wish to scrub the area to much. Each side has marking related to the ammunition used. The top lid still retains its inner rubber seal. Nice display piece for sure folks!
Late War Printed Home Guard Slip-on Shoulder Titles. Matching pair in very nice condition.
Late War Quist M42 Helmet Shell. Scarce example of a Quist made M42 combat helmet thats in solid condition, this is not a relic thats been filled and then sprayed! The outside finish has been done with a professional hand, it has one knock to the top were the metal can be seen, there is another finish underneath but i cannot make out if this is wartime period. The inside has a couple of diffrent colours. At some point someone has scratched the back of the skirt to reveal the ''Q64'' stamp,underneath the Lot number can be seen. Apparently all Quist 42's are marked Q64.

The box is very nice with just a couple of minor scuffs to the outer.The back of the box under the button has a faint red stamp i presume being an LDO mark but its faint and cannot be made out. Both hinge and button are in fine condition.
Leather Hobnail Boots. WW1 Pattern? I would describe these as old new stock as they have never been worn. I have not polished them as i thought you would like to see them in there natural state. The leather is supple considering they have never had any polish or dubbing applied and the bottoms have there full ''nails'' intact. The leather laces where found with the boots. One boot has a makers name ''Dryfoot'' stamped to the bottom , this firm made boots in the Bristol area and turned over production during WW1 to making boots for the Military. Dating these will be a problem, 1920's/30's perhaps but other than the extra side rivet and front plate to the bottoms they do follow the WW1 pattern even down to being produced in brown leather and a black stain applied, so until you can find or afford an original example these would make a nice addition to a WW1 mannequin or wear them in your trench folks! Mind you they are also perfect for a Homefront scene or just wear them as they do not make boots like these anymore. They are size stamped 7.
Leather SA Dagger Hanger. In good used condition with tones metal fittings, no stamps , and supple leather. One split to the end section of the leather, this does not go all the way through to the ''eye'' hole. Perfect for display on your dagger.

Letters And Medal From RAF Sergeant P.D.H.Mcgovern Killed Over France 1940. Mcgovern was tragically killed in June 1940 when his Blenheim was lost over France in 1940, one of six Blenheims lots that night due to bad weather. 12 Hurricanes and 12 Blenheims were being ferried to reinforce the besieged Island of Malta when all ran into very bad conditions. Mcgovern and the other two crew members are buried at the Charroux communial cemetary. The group consists a number of letters written by Mcgovern to his father from 1938 ,four are when he was training as a member of the RAFVR, all have had the address details ripped from the corners, others are from his time when he was working in a few hotels in Switzerland, going by his letters he needed to leave the local area for a while as there appears to have been a certain amount of trouble over a girl. A number of letters during his training mention his forthcoming marriage to a lady older than him, he doesnt seem that keen but belives its the right thing for him and if anything happens she will be paid by the forces till the end of the war. One letter does mention how dangerous his job is and that according to statistics he only has 7 minutes life.The small picture of Mcgovern has his details written on the back. The rest has something to do with his father, note books and medical card, The War medal in box with no name as also found in the wooden box, perhaps his only entitlement! Just to add, the box has a hand written message to the inside lid dated 1914 from Matron to Catherine? He wasnt far wrong about a dangerous job and due to fate he didnt die in action but due to unforeseen circumstances, poignant really, not sure if he even married the girl as this small lot was found recently in the attic of a house during a clearance here in the Cardiff area.

The helmet was then reissued after occupation and used by the German Luftschutz with the addition of there flat grey finish added over the original Czech factory finish.

The inside has close to 80% Czech army finish with a good amount of rust bleed in certain areas, ink stamps with makers details are clear. Both chinstrap bales are present as are the five liner retaining plates and a small part of the chinstrap around one bale. This shell recently turned up from a garage in the Koblenz area of Germany.

Luftschutz used French Adrian Army Helmet.

Inside lining is complete with minimal staining, you can just make out where the makers stamp once was.

Luftwaffe Ground Assault Badge. Arno Vallpach. This zinc example has seen better days when it comes to the finish , you can make out the dark as in the cloud and lightning bolt but the silver has sunk into the zink base. There is a certain amount of zinc pest to be found but im sure this would clean up with some minor care and attention. The detail is still sharp even down to the eagles beak that has taken a slight graze. The rear has its period hardware with just one problem, the pin has seized to the top hinge with zinc pest. I have not tried to manipulate too much and will leave ''as is'' for the new collector if wishing to try and free the pin, please check the extra photos ive added of the top hinge! This unmarked example corresponds to badges made by the firm Arno Vallpach. All in all its a collectable badge in good condition and i will price according to the issues.

Both side tabs present with buttons and top webb stretcher present with back buckle. Both bottom leather straps have some wear with both fixing buckles present. The inside fur is complete and clean but both side openings have torn revealing both receivers with the period loom still attached. No label to be found inside. A good displayable example.
Luftwaffe M35 DD Combat Helmet. ET62. A well used combat helmet that has received at least two coats of reissued paint on top of the factory finish, a whitewash then on top a dark blue/grey. The the last coat of reissued paint id rate at being 40% remaining the rest has the original factory finish which rates at 90% with most loss to finish being the crown area. The eagle decal is at least 75% complete and on top off what i believe is its first decal, a droop tail example. The tri colour rates at 40% and at one point was under the dark reissued paint. The inside factory finish is close to 100% complete.The early single banded framed liner is in nice supple and complete condition, the inside has a Regimental stamp and the owner has written his name to the inside shell in red crayon. Liner pins have not been tampered with but slightly loose as expected from a well used combat helmet. The original chinstrap is complete but the long end section as a certain amount of damage and one repair, lets call it fragile, the aluminium buckle end appears to be fine. Shell is stamped ET62 on the side and the rear Lot number is 3221.
Luftwaffe M35 Droop Tail DD Combat Helmet. ET66. A nice well used example with id say at least 75% of its factory finish the rest having that dark patina to the metal. The first pattern Droop Tail decal rates at over 90% with sharp detail, the Tri Colour decal id say rates at 45%. The inside has nearly all its factory finish and the shell is marked ET66 to the side with the Lot number being 4075. The liner frame is the second reinforced type and the leather liner is complete and supple taking on a very nice dark colour, it has its original string. The liner is named to a Funker with details but i cannot make them out. The liner pins are unmolested but are slightly loose from use. The leather chinstrap is the original example but the long strap has lost its end and the buckle end is missing other than the aluminium buckle. SORRY BUT PAYMENT CANNOT BE MADE USING PAYPAL FOR THIS ITEM! IF INTERESTED THEN PLEASE GIVE ME A CALL.
Luftwaffe M40 Combat Helmet. ET64. NO PAYPAL PAYMENTS PLEASE. The shell retains well over 95% of its period factory finish with just some slight spotting from storage peaking through over the shell. One liner pin has all its finish with the other two having wear. All three pins are factory tight and unmolested. The side has the remains of a first pattern Luftwaffe Adler showing a good amount of wear, more to come on the decal at the end of the description. The period installed M40 type liner with steel band is supple with what i would call moderate use with some staining and wear to the edge. Two of the rear tongues have some rodent damage including a couple of nips to the leather body. The leather chinstrap is in nice supple condition with no damage and a steel buckle with most of its factory grey finish, no markings or date but in my opinion this is the helmets period chinstrap and not replaced. Shell has a clear ET64 stamp to the side with a Lot number 840 to the rear. I purchased this helmet many years ago from a chap who stated his relative brought this helmet home from Norway, found in an abandoned Airfield. The decal in my opinion is period and a type found for sale commercially and not factory applied. Norway is know for many anomalies when it comes to German helmets, this decal application might well be such. Anyway what your buying is a very nice Lufty helmet with nearly all its finish, tight unmessed liner pins, period liner and chinstrap. If like me you can see a period applied decal then your winning even more. AS THIS IS FROM MY OWN COLLECTION I AM NOT EXCEPTING ANY PAYPAL PAYMENTS UNLESS YOU WISH TO ADD THE 4% ON THE TOTAL COST. THAT WILL BE A DECISION FOR YOU. I WILL SEND THE PURCHASER MY BANK DETAILS FOR PAYMENT!
Luftwaffe M40 SD Combat Helmet. ET66. Outside finish to the shell i would rate at 95% with some of the usual wear found on helmets that where used in combat, this finish has a nice flat appearance from not being handled too much. The decal i would say is 75% complete having been worn down from helmet use as it matches the overall appearance of the outside shell.Liner pins are tight. The inside liner has a nice colour with one tip having an old fashioned repair using wax, this wax has then been used to go along the complete top edge of the liner to prevent damage and preservation. The inside shell has 100% of its flat period finish and a very nice clear dome stamp. The makers details to the side and the Lot numbers are clearly stamped.
Luftwaffe M40 SD Combat Helmet. Q62. A very nice example with around 95% of its period rough finish to the shell. The decal rates at close to 95% , one good knock to the tip of one wing. The liner pins are tight. The inside shell has all its flat factory finish and the liner has a very nice colour and is supple, the liner string in my opinion appears to be the period example. The shell has a clear makers stamp and size, Q62 and the rear Lot number is T995. Going by the appearance of the chinstrap i would say its the helmets period example, no maker can be found as the last inch or so has some damage, the strap was over the visor when i purchased the helmet and i have left it ''as is''.

Luftwaffe Soldbuch and Paperwork, III/Flak Regiment 12. A nice complete Soldbuch to a well decorated NCO who serve with a Flak Regiment 12 and various sub units including searchlights for nightfighter zones in Holland and Belgium. His last unit was Heer Flak Battalion 504 , the Stab being lucky enough not to go East with the rest of the Regiment and serving in Gottingen, lower Saxony. This city was captured April 7th by the US first army, his last award, the KVK1, was awarded on the April 20th so his unit must have been able to move and keep on fighting. His decorations include the First and second class War Merit Crosses, 4year service and the October 1st medals . The two documents found with this Soldbuch are is his promotion document, dated 1940 and his Oct 1st medal certificate. The condition of this set of documents is very good. This book needs more research as i found his units a bit confusing to say the least, perhaps he served in Italy at one point?

Clear label to the inside. No internal communication equipment as used by bomber crews etc.

M1 Helmet Shell, Rear Seam, Heat Stamp Numbered. Falklands, Korea, WW2. A good solid condition M1 helmet shell without fractures, rear seam and swivel bails. The shell seems to have had least two coats of paint, the top coat being a rough dark finish on top of a lighter green. Shell has a knock near the crown. The inside front has a heat stamp that someone in the past has tried to ''dig out'', i cannot make out the details. The remains of the chinstrap is the type found on postwar examples. Would make a good restoration project with a sewn chinstrap and wartime liner or finish off as a Korean example or if your lucky to have an Argentine liner lying about this shell has all the appearances of the type found on the Falklands for sure!

M3 Fighting Knife. Camillus. The blade has close to 95% of its factory finish, the edge with a grind mark to one side near the back of the blade. The hilt has some staining from age with slight surface rust to certain areas, quick wipe with an oily rag will take this away. The front of the cross guard to one side is clearly stamped...US.M3.CAMILLUS..Top pommel is stamped with a flaming bomb and has two steel pins to the side. The staked leather handle has little wear with no shrinkage or splits. The M8A1 scabbard is made by the firm B.M.CO, its well used with a couple of coats of paint, webbed top half complete with working closer strap.
M3 Fighting Knife. Camillus. Blade has close to 955 of its factory finish with some dirty stains and its factory ground edge. The hilt again with most of its factory finish, some staining and a couple of knocks to the pommel. Pommel has a clear ordnance stamp and two side pegs. The leather stacked grip is supple not having dried out with no splits or cracks. The underside of the pommel has clear makers details for the Camillus firm. The M8 scabbard appears to be a generic European example in nice condition with all paint and working top strap.
M34 DD Police Feuerschutzpolizie Helmet. This example has i would say close to 100% of its black finish to the inside and outside shell. The decals rate at close too 100% with minor scratches. The inside leather is supple with the only issue being the loss of its chinstrap.
M34 Feuerschutzpolizei Helmet, Erel. A well used fire helmet with its period leather neck flap. The helmet has recived an extra coat of black finish over the outside shell. The inside has all its early fixtures including the early spring clip chinstrap, supple liner thats double marked by the Erel firm and all rear neck flap fittings. On close inspection i belive i can make out the two decals under the overpaint. May i add that a quick wipe over the shell with a damp cloth will bring the finish up a treat!
M34 Feuerschutzpolizei Helmet. In very nice condition, outside of the shell has had a second coat of black, this rates at over 98% intact, minor scuffs etc. No decal seen under this second coat. The inside liner and chinstrap are complete and in supple condition, underneath the liner near the brow is a folded news paper, i pressume for comfort. I managed to fold back one corner and found that its a wartime NSKK paper but have not removed it for closer inspection, well its been there for over 75 years and best to leave it as is. Makers symbol stamped to the back neck area of the helmet.
M34 Fire/Police Helmet . Helmet shell retains nearly all its factory finish inside and outside, one minor ''dink'' to the top of the crown area. Inside liner is complete and in supple condition, still retains the five leather tabs for securing a neck apron. Chinstrap again complete with a working snap fastener. In my opinion most probably used postwar.
M34 Fire/Police Helmet . A post war used M34 helmet with leather neck protective apron. The helmet shell has close to 100% of its factory finish with an addition of a replica Luftschutz decal added to the front. The inside liner is complete with its top dome, chinstrap has a repair utilizing a chinstrap from another helmet. Neck apron is supple and complete.
M34 Fire/Police Helmet . DRP-Thale-A. A nice M34 helmet with close to 100% of its factory finish remaining and its period aluminium protective comb. At some point repro decals have been added, keep as is or remove to get the helmet back to its period configuration. The inside has a nice clean and complete liner system, leather neck protector and complete chinstrap with carbine clip. The helmet has a faint makers stamp for the Thale company to the rear. This one has come back to me in a swap recently so back up looking for a new home folks!
M34 Square Dip Luftschutz Steel Helmet. Condition is very good with over 90% of its dark blue factory finish remaining, one small ''ding'' to the rear only.Ive not tried to clean and belive a light wipe with a damp cloth would bring up the finish The liner pins are tight. The front decal is nearly 99% complete with just the slightest of bubbling to the bottom area. The inside paint finish is complete with the late war cloth type liner in supple condition but one tear near the front on one side. The supple liner again complete but one end has come through the side rivet which holds the strap to the sides, i belive this can be repaired without to much work. All in all a nice scarce Luftschutz model.
M35 Woodchip Camouflage Helmet. In what i would call semi relic condition is this M35 helmet that has a heavy woodchip camo applied , it would appear this application saved the outside from the results of bad storage over the years. The woodchip id rate at over 90% complete with its colour , a few areas are missing showing the previous coats including the factory green, cannot find any trace of decals. There is one original liner pin remaining, the back one has been added. The inside liner and chinstrap would appear to be the original period example as they match the condition of the shell perfectly but i found out after purchasing in a dark show room that it is indeed a replacement but a very good matching addition. The long end of the chinstrap has broken and the liner frame has split near on chinstrap bale. So not a bad looking woodchip camouflage helmet that displays nicely and much cheaper than the usual examples of period woodchip camo helmets.
M35 Woodchip Camouflage Helmet. EXTRA PHOTOS. EXTRA PHOTOGRAPHS........
M38 Luftschutz Gladiator Helmet. The shell has 100% of its period finish intact, inside and outside. The decal rates at around 95% with a good knock to one wing. The liner system is complete and in very nice condition with minimal wear as is the chinstrap.
M38 Luftschutz Gladiator Helmet. Helmet has 99% of its factory finish remaining to the outside, the front decal is again close to 99% complete but the details has been worn back. The inside has all its finish to the shell, the liner system is complete and supple as is the chinstrap.
M38 Luftschutz Helmet. Three piece constructed Gladiator helmet with around 95% of its original factory finish, the decal again id say 95% intact. The inside liner is in used condition with one tounge end missing , the chinstrap is complete but has a break, liner and strap are supple. The rear has a number stamp and the former owner has scratched his name inside.
M40 Baden Wurttenberg Police Helmet. Quist. A size 64 helmet produced by the Quist firm for the postwar police. The shell is perfect with close to 100% of its green factory finish and a 100% clear Baden Wurttenberg decal to the side.
M40 Double Decal Police Helmet. Q64. The helmet shell has close to 100% of its rough finish with an overall amount of patina. The bordered Police decal is close to 90% complete with some knocks to the body of the eagle, id say leaving 40% of the swastika under the eagles claws. The Party decal has purposefully been scratched off leaving 25% of the border. All liner pins are tight and unmolested. Inside flat factory finish to the shell is again 100% complete with the shell having a clear ''Q64'' and rear Lot number DN182. The liner is in super clean condition with minor wear to the edge only and a clear 57 size stamp. Liner string is its period example. The leather chinstrap, in my opinion the helmets period example, complete without damage and has a clear late war RBN number. A nice Police example with great finish, super inside and priced accordingly due to the issue with the Party shield and the stain to one side.
M40 ET64 Austrian Border Guard Helmet. Nice wartime ET manufactured helmet with its period wartime liner system and chinstrap utilised from a wartime web equipment strap. The shell has over 90% of its grey finish to the outside with lots of wear from use, inside finish is close to 100%. Two small holes have been drilled into the shell to take the flaming bomb badge used by Austrian border guards. The inside wartime liner is complete with one small tear, couple of tongue have pulled through, one has come adrift to the tip, its named and has a large size stamp 56.The liner string again a nice wartime example. Another nice addition is the use of a wartime equipment strap as a chinstrap, both ends being riveted to the chinstrap bales. Side of the helmet is stamped ET64, rear lot number is 1074. Inside skirt has an ink stamp number 1098. The Austrians used lots of wartime shells in the late 1940\'s postwar and they come with various liner systems from civilian to wartime examples.
M40 Single Decal Army Helmet. EF64. A good example of the basic single decal Army helmet made by the firm EF. The rough factory finish has seen a good amount of use with close to 90% remaining with the rest turning that dark, close to the paint, finish from age and patina. The liner pins are the period examples and have never been tampered with, pins are tight and all three have there washers. There is a faint EF64 stamp to the side with the rear having a clear Lot number..22443 just by the side of the painted number 56. The Heer decal i would say is close to 60% present with the top being worn down from use. The liner is in very nice supple condition with the edge turning dark brown from use, faint name can be seen seen to one side under the chinstrap bale.Liner string is period to the helmet The chinstrap is complete and supple with an early aluminium buckle, this strap in my opinion is the period example and always been with this helmet. Out of interest the back edge of the helmet has received a slight spray of green, perhaps the helmet was just a tad to close to some equipment being sprayed. A nice untouched lid folks! p.s. I've just noticed using a torch that there is a second name in pencil running along the rear of the helmet just under the liner.
M40 Single Decal Combat Helmet, Q64. This Q64 helmet still retains over 97% of its factory textured finish to the outside and all its smooth finish to the inside. The decal rates at around 45% intact. The liner has nice colour and is in very nice condition, the tie chord appears to be original to the helmet. Chinstrap is RBN numbered and in fine condition but the short end is missing. The liner rattles slightly but as seen from one picture the pins have not been tampered with.
M42 EF68 Single Decal Combat Helmet. NO PAYPAL PAYMENT!! Here we have a huge shell size 68 combat helmet that did not sit out the war. The shell has well over 95% of its period finish with lots of patina and the usual combat scrapes to the paint with all liner pins having the same matching finish. The EF decal rates at close to 85% complete with sharp detail and silver colour. The inside liner system has seen better days for sure but its the original period example as it left the factory, marked 60 as found in these 68 sized helmet shells. The liner string again is the period example as is the complete chinstrap, missing its long end tip. Liner pins are a bit loose from use but have not been tampered with. This is in my opinion an untouched example, displays well and a huge size. SORRY BUT NO PAYPAL PAYMENT WITH THIS ITEM. IF WISHING TO USE PAYPAL THEN FEEL FREE TO ADD THE 4% PAYPAL CHARGE TO OVERALL COST!
M42 Helmet Shell, ckl 66. This WW2 manufactured steel helmet was used postwar by the fire brigade having the shell painted black and a new liner system added. The large sized 66 shell is in very nice solid condition with the only pitting i can see just around one vent above the reproduction swastika decal, no dents or cracks and clear stamps to the rear. There does appear to be a green finish under the black, i have not tried to remove any of the black to see whats underneath. So a very good solid and large sized shell ready for some work if wishing to use as a project. May i also add the pins appear to be WW2 examples and all three have the washers.
M42 No Decal German Combat Helmet. In very nice condition with lets say 99% of its period flat factory finish intact, some minor scrapes from storage and two small knocks to the top. The shell is stamped NS66 to the rear and has a clear factory ink stamp to the inner dome. Pins are tight! The liner is complete and supple and has had light use if any at all.
M42 Single Decal Combat Helmet. NS64. Shell has close to 95% of its period factory rough finish including the liner pins. The decal rates at close to 85% remaining with wear to the black background from not having lacquer applied at the factory. The makers side stamp and rear Lot number are a weak strike, i can make out the first letter ''N'' and last number ''4'' so its a NS64, this can be confirmed by the use of a Huber Jordan & Koerner decal found on NS produced helmets. The inside liner is the helmets period example, complete and supple, but at some point this has been treated by a over exuberant collector.
M42 Steel Helmet Shell. ET62. Shell only, sized 62 with paint removed. Shell is solid with no cracks or dents. Perfect restoration project.
M44 Gladiator Factory Helmet. A very nice example with close to 100% of its period black finish and a very clean and supple inner liner system and chinstrap. Shell has a faint makers stamp under the paint. This example has two stenciled sprayed yellow lines and a rear back number , i believe the helmet was issued to a factory.

Massive Anglo Indian Bowie Knife. The nearly 10 inch blade has minimal staining and light sharpening to the cutting edge. Brass hilt , cross guard with slight movement and the top pommel being slightly loose from age and storage. The horn handle is in perfect condition with a diameter of around nearly 5 inches. The patterned leather scabbard has tight stitching along its seam with the bottom area attached to the brass chape having worn , perhaps bent over time, its weak with some holes but not come adrift. Brass scabbard top has the usual type fixing found on these Victorian type hunting knives produced for British hunters and folks on an expedition. No makers stamps to be found. Total length from bottom of the scabbard to the top pommel is 16.5 inches. NOT FOR SALE TO UNDER 18\'s AND UK ONLY. PROFF OF AGE WILL BE REQUIRED.
Massive Bowie Knife. Huge private made bowie with a nice clean blade, makers letters stamped to the top under the cross guard. Blade has a good edge but will need to be ''honed'' to your taste. The cross guard is made from shaped brass, slightly ''wobbley''. The handle would appear to be undamaged. Leather scabbard is a nice hand made example, fits the blade perfectly. Perfect if your out looking for bears or if wanting to take on Jim Bowie down in Texas!
Matching 2 X U.S. 20mm Shells, 1942. A very nice matching pair of 20mm shells that are in very nice condition. Case ends are both dated 1942 with the heads having matching codes and again both are dated 1942.
Matching British WW1 Binoculars and 1917 Dated Leather Case. Nice matching set with the case having a clear 1917 date with a large letter \'\'H\'\' corresponding to the stamps found on the binocular body. The actual binoculars are very clean with clear markings, nice tight pullout sun screens and good sharp focus, optics are clear with just some minimal spotting. The leather case again in nice clean condition but i did spot a glue repair to one of the back straps but hardly noticeable in the photos. Nice to find a matching set in my opinion!
Matching Heer Belt and \'\'JFS\'\' Buckle. 1943. The steel buckle has over 85% of its green factory finish, front and back. The detail is to the front design is still sharp without any knocks etc. The rear has a clear JFS stamp inside a box just in front of the catch. Both fixing prongs present. The belt is in good supple condition, its well used with no weak spots and tight stitching. To the front under the buckle fixing strap is a clear size stamp and a double stamped 1943 date with Rbl number. The end catch still has a good amount of green finish matching the color of the buckle so its my conclusion both belt and buckle have always been together.
Matching Numbered K98 Bayonet and Leather Frog. A well used example with the blade having bright finish, some staining and two round water marks to the surface. Blade tip is fine, the ricasso has an S178 code stamp for the firm Heller, the spine is dated 37 and the other side has a clear number stamp that matches the top of the scabbard. The cross guard, flash cover and pommel have taken on a dark finish with no pitting and clear waffenampt stamps to the pommel head. One of the wooden grips has taken a good knock resulting in a crack and a small loss of wood, the other side is fine. The metal scabbard has a dark finish from storage, not sure under the frog as i have not removed it and as mentioned numbers match the bayonet. The frog is a non maker marked example, its supple with loose stitching to either side of the middle section. In my opinion this is the bayonets period example as it matches the overall condition.
Matching Numbers K98 Bayonet , Horster 1937. In good condition with the blade having sharp stamped details to both sides with lets say over 95% of its dark factory finish. The tip is there, looks as if it might have been used for opening something, will clean and the top of the blade has a 37 date. The hilt has some pitting, top fixing button is free but stiff, clear waffenampt stamps to one side of the pommel. Both wooden grips have turned a dark brown from patina , no chips. The steel scabbard is pitted with no dents and some scratches from cleaning and the side screw is missing. Both scabbard and bayonet have matching details including numbers. NOT FOR SALE TO UNDER 18'S AND UK ONLY!
Matching Numbers K98 Bayonet , Horster 1940. A very good example with the clearly marked and dated 40 blade having over 95% of its factory finish. Most of the wear being close to the tip from the scabbard inner throat and a slight ''kink'' to the very tip of the blade, dont think you will see this in the photos! The hilt has most of its finish, top fixing button moves freely and the top of the pommel has two clear waffenampt stamps. Both grips are free from cracks or chips. The steel scabbard has close to 98% of its factory coat with a deep struck waffenampt stamp to the bottom ball. As mentioned both blade and scabbard have matching numbers, date and manufacture stamps.
Matching Numbers K98 Bayonet and Frog. This is an untouched example with the blade retaining a good amount of its finish and a nice tip. The only issue to the blade is the minimal staining to the tip, hard to see but there. One side of the blade has clear stamps..41ffc, the other side stamped 8208 over an ''e''. Both grips are clean without damage. The hilt is free of pitting and has stained a certain amount, top fixing button is free. The pommel has two clear waffenampt stamps. The scabbard has a nice amount of its finish and a certain amount of patina, bottom tip has a clear waffenampt stap. One side of the scabbard top is stamped ''41ffc'' the other has a clear number stamp 8208 over an ''e'' so a nice matching numbers set. The leather frog is supple with tight stitching and a faint makers mark over a date to the rear. In my opinion the frog and bayonet have always been together. NOT FOR SALE TO UNDER 18'S AND UK ONLY!

The hern handle is perfect without damage, well there are two minor chips near the metal bolster end. I cannot see any stamps to the blade.

No cast number to be found on the pommel. The scabbard is complete with both pairs of wings, the top elastic has stretched somewhat.

The leather has dried out somewhat but supple enough with some scuffs to the outer finish and two small holes either side of the top above the ear receivers, they correspond with each other and would appear to have been made by a set of goggles. Both back side straps are complete with poppers as is the back strap with buckle, they are open and i will leave \'\'as is\'\'. The chinstrap buckle is in fine condition but the under strap has lost most of its outer leather. The long end strap the other side is in sound condition.

I have managed to find a Alfred Benjamin Dix from the Bridgend area who served as a navigator in 47 Squadron, killed in action, Libya in 1943.

The top white rope header material has some faded stamps, i can make out the \'\'6x3\'\' and \'\'4B\'\' and perhaps the word \'\'Liverpool\'\' under faded maker details. The rest i find illegible. The hanging rope has both brass fixing ends. The condition i would rate as very good with no loose stitching or holes just some minor staining from storage. Sorry about the photos but a bit dark and wet outside and the added lack of space but im sure you can see that this is a nice period RAF station flag without spurious \'\'AM\'\' and wartime date stamps as seen on many an \'\'upgraded\'\' flag!

A good example only in need of the front badge.
RAF Wireless Operator Flying Log Book, Service/Release Book and Photos. According to is flying log book Sgt Hill started Radio school on the 17 of June 44 and passed at the end of the month.

Rare Luger Leather Pistol Lanyard. The leather body to the lanyard is supple with no weak areas including the woven type end attached to the brass metal swivel fittings. The leather end loop is the period example, please check the cone shaped brass stud, but at some point the stitching must have gone and this one has been glued as a repair. I may also add that the tightening loop might not be the period example, again its glued and not sewn. Even with these two repairs this is a very rare piece of kit that doesn't turn very up often unless purchased within a large collection of luger accessories.
Rare WW2 Allied Military Homeing Pigeon Message Carry Tube. In very nice condition. As used by Military message services, correspondents, special forces including SOE.

The Release book is in parts and signed off by an officer from Germany in 1946. There are a number of other pieces of paper related to his service, family photo and a large group photo with three lads in BD's. There is one written letter in Dutch and signed off by the name ''Jock'' who i believe is Kerr and written when he was part of the occupation forces in German where the 356 ended the war. The ''HD'' Christmas greetings from the Rhine card would also match part of the 356th unit history going by some searching on the internet. Lastly we have Kerr's Efficiency medal and paper award document dated 1948 with a ''Lodge of St Andrews'' medal . It would appear the 356th landed in Normandy late 6th June , was then part of what was called ''Monty's Moonlight'' Batteries providing artificial moonlight for tank concentrations in forward ares. The unit went through Northern Europe ending up in Germany during the occupation. Not a bad little group with some good research potential.

Now for the optics, one side is perfect with clear lenses that have sharp focus and all three different colour lenses working fine. The left hand side has some loose lenses, sometimes there fine but a slight movment and they move again, can clearly be heard when moving the binoculars so they need a service. The rain shrouds to the front are both in fine working condition, also included is the period leather neck strap. These where found in an old battered bino case and it does have a lid somewhere so thats how i will send them out.

A very nice WW2 period officers cap and scarce to find a clear dated example.
Royal Welch Fusiliers Scarlet Jacket. 1911/20.

Russian Ssh68 Helmet Shell. Afghan Bring Back. Relic Russian helmet shell with some of its rough thick finish remaining, to the top is a punched hole, perhaps used as a grave marker or battle damage?

Russian Volunteer M35 Combat Helmet. Relic condition M35 helmet with a very nice hand painted two colour, red and white, shield to one side. Id say the helmet has 40 % of its period finish to the outside of the shell with the side area were the shield is having being protected over the years. The inside still has its steel inner frame with all pins present. Now to what i would call the ''money shot'', that is the white and red painted shield used by Russian Volunteers serving in the German army, the condition is over 85% present with lots of crazing to the paint finish, its clear and period to the helmet. I purchased the helmet from someone who picked it up in Belgium in the late 1970's whilst on holiday, Russians Volunteers were stationed in the Normandy area in 1944 and would have been pushed back through Belgium during the retreat. A rare and facinating piece of history even in this condition.

SA Dagger , RZM, M7/13, Semi Relic. Condition i would describe as semi relic, the handle has a chip to one side, eagle and roundel are in nice condition, metal fittings have some loss of finish. The blade has no sharpening but as seen a lot of staining but no pitting, clear makers code and motto. The scabbard again has loss of paint and finish to the throat and bottom chape. One screw and side hanger is missing. Blade fits tightly into the scabbard.
SA Dagger Hanger and Belt Loop. Nice item that has been together for a number of years going by the remaining nicotine staining to all metal parts. The leather is supple, the usual crack found along the area were the hole takes the metal peg. No markings to be found. Reserved for the BIG lad.

SA Dagger, Carl Schmidt Sohn. Early pattern example by the firm Carl Schmidt. The blade has a certain amount of staining, old grease and runner marks, some of the factory grain can be seen. The makers details are sharp as is the central motto and its my opinion the tip has been reshaped at some point. The hilt has a certain amount of patina and verdigris, top nut has been moved at least once, eagle and SA roundel are in fine undamaged condition. The wooden handle is very clean with use, one tiny chip to the surface at the back just under the top mount and one scrape along the surface , again the the back and nothing of a surprise from a worn example. This example is marked along the bottom mount to the group ''NS''. The early anodized scabbard has close to 90% of its finish but mixed in with some surface rust and spotting, metal mounts appear never to have been messed with and the bottom ball has one minor knock. So a used example in close to untouched condition other than the tip and one that would come up even better with some minor soft cleaning, i have left it ''as is'' with the patina, verdigris and old grease. MMMMMM just the way i like them! NOT FOR SALE TO UNDER 18'S, UK ONLY AND ID PROOF PLEASE.
SA Dagger, F.Herder A.S. Early dagger by Herder that's in nice condition with the blade having a nice sharp inscription, clear makers details, good tip and minimal staining with the slightest of surface pitting. The dark chocolate nearly black handle has no chips or cracks, some slight bruising as expected from a used example, both the eagle and SA button to the top are in very nice condition. The scabbard is the early anodised type with nearly all its finish , throat and bottom chape have all screws and its hanging loop. May i add that to the back there is a certain amount of very small knocks to the bottom of the handle, throat and the top of the anodised scabbard from being worn and will not detract from the overall condition of the dagger, its just part of its history folks.
SA Dagger, Hammesfahr Cie. The blade is made by Hammesfahr with the nice swimming man logo and the other side has its complete motto. Tip has been rounded. The period cross guard is area marked ''Wm'' and the top guard has its period fixing nut. Someone has carved a grip. Yep its an oddity, a bit of fun, displays well and mostly real! SOLD TO MICK!!
SA Dagger. RZM M7/27, Pumawerk. Late manufactured dagger by Pumawerk. The blade has some faint staining to the surface and the usual runner marks, blade cross grain still evident. Motto and makers codes are crisp. The hardwood handle is close to perfect condition with no chips, cracks or stains. Bright nickle eagle with some staining to the SA roundel. Cross guard fittings have some plate lifting as has the tight top nut. The scabbard has close to all its period finish with scratches from storage. Plated scabbard fittings have some wear, bottom ball just a slight knock, missing one screw and the two top screws are replacements. An above average example in my opinion with the main issue being the replaced screws.

Soldbuch and Arbeitsbuch, Headquarter Company Infantry Regiment 591, Soldbuch is not in the best of conditions with the photo having been removed, pages are complete. It would seem that the soldier joined his local Battalion being the Landsestchuzen,Ers, Btl 12 in 1941 , he is with the Headquarter Company of Infantry Regiment 591 at some point. He was issued a rifle several times and various other equipment. He did spend time in Hospital in 1943 with these pages in the book giving details. I don't believe he was issued any awards.

As mentioned the Soldbuch is well used with spine repair, the front photo is a large details shot of Josef in his walking out jacket, its no surprise he was issued a p38 for personal protection. Found inside the book .....

South Wales, Skewen, Father and Son Family Medals. 2nd Battalion SWB Wounded 1944, Devonshire Engineers KIA 1918. Nice and new to the market are these medals to father and son that i have just purchased off the family. The father was part of the Devonshire Engineers 267 company who was killed in France on the 21st of March 1918 and is commemorated on the panels of the Pozieres Memorial. His 1914/15 trio is in nice untouched condition with all three medals being named and numbered to...41 W.C.STONEMAN, R.E. SPR on his star and CPL on his other two medals. The other medals relate to his son Walter Herbert Charles Stoneman from the Skewen area of South Wales. His pay book is complete with full details including pasted to the back his discharge certificate which states ''Ceasing to fulfil Army physical requirements''. There is a small photo of Stoneman found inside. Also included is his medal slip marked for 4 medals and a poignant letter dated October 13th informing mother/wife that Walter was wounded on the 4th of October but no other info is known at the present time. All medals are in nice untouched condition and also included is his nice SWB cap badge. Now im no researcher but from what i can gather Walter landed at Normandy 7 days after D-Day part of the 2nd Battalion SWB fighting his way up through Normandy then Belgium. The 2nd was then attached to the 49th West Riding Infantry Division for a push to secure the Scheldt Estuary. The date of his wound October 4th would suggest being hit during the push from Turnhout to Tilburg but this is all my guess work, further research im sure is possible. When i purchased this set from the daughter of Walter junior she stated he was hit in the elbow! I may add that if the daughter returns with the fathers death plaque i shall indeed contact the new owner.

Special Forces Helmet. Cannot find much information on these except that the ones i have seen previously have always been described as \'\'special forces\'\' even down to the description having the word \'\'Hereford\'\' used. I cannot be 100% sure as i found this amongst items being used on a mannequin representing a member of the SAS. I do know that the very useful internet site, GOSTAK.ORG.UK, on composite helmets have an exact example described as \'\'special forces\'\' possibly manufactured by RBR. Anyway the helmet is in nice condition with full liner and chinstrap system, one rear sweatband clip has broken.

Splinter Pattern Helmet Cover. I have been informed that this cover might well have been made from Swiss pattern material, to tell the truth folks i haven't a clue but thought id pass on the info. What I do know is the cover is in well used condition, faded and dirty material, and in a huge size, it will fit a size 68 or 70 shell. I also know the helmet the cover is displayed on in the photos is not part of the sale!! Perfect for running around a field during your weekends away.

SS Steel Buckle, Veteran Used, Attic Find. This was brought to my table last week by a couple who found it during a roof renovation they where doing in the Chepstow area. The steel buckle has good detail and just a faint amount of its period finish. At one point the veteran who was wearing it with a small WW1 belt, repaired the catch, fits the belt end perfectly. I cannot find and makers details. As for the belt its seen a lot of moth damage to the back felt and crazing to the leather. Nice to find an SS buckle example used postwar by the veteran to keep his trousers up! P.S. The leather keep strap on the belt is fragile!!

SS Visor Eagle. CuPAL 394/35. This bird has seen better days for sure but still has nice detail to the front and its an early CuPAL made example by an unknown firm. The rear at some point has had a bar type fixing system soldered in place but as luck has it the RZM stamp is clear and part of the maker code detail can be seen under the bar.

The WW2 examples have been name stamped and the remaining medals have all been renamed by the same jeweller to Major Smith. I purchased this group and some insignia from the daughter last week. Im sorry to say that i did not spot the renaming, so this group is now going for a little less than the sum of said parts. From the patina and rubbing this group has been together for years and worn my Major Smith during his time in the local TA. As a postscript, yesterday i was talking to a SWB veteran i met out of the blue who served 25 years in the battalion serving with Major Smith who according to him was a well respected officer and leader. 39/45 STAR Named..Lt Smith, SWB AFRICA STAR Named..Spr Smith,SWB.
