British LIA2 Magazine - Clamshell Sterling SMG One of the features of the Sterling submachine gun that contributed to its excellence and popularity in the post-WW2 world was the innovative magazine. Previous magazines for 9-mm submachine guns were straight, although the cartridge itself has a slight taper that makes it want to lie in a curved shape in line with other cartridges. The magazines designed for the Sterling recognized this and were made in a curved shape. In addition, it featured a double-column feed and a unique dual-roller follower, eliminating sources of jamming common to other submachine gun magazines. ** UK sales only **
Can Anyone Help Identify the Aircraft This Yoke Came From? This came with a couple of RAF B type flying helmets, a 1932 Pattern Mae West, 1933 pattern gauntlets and a pair of Mk III.A goggles. I have been told it’s from a Bristol Blenheim, possibly a Bristol Beaufighter but I am not convinced? Its also ‘similar’ in style to the Halifax yoke! Is it actually from an aircraft?

More Details for 51277 above The GQ Parasuit were initially developed for the rear gunner of the Boulton Paul Defiant. The concept was to avoid the parachute snagging in the confined gunner’s turret, especially when attempting to bail out.

More Photographs for Item 501237
More Photos for Item 51259 Above Some of the uniform has been heavily starched and ironed. Considering its age and use, I consider it to be in remarkable condition, obviously there are some staines and minor wear, predominantly the rubber buttons on the blue dress have perished and one of the headscarves has a rip in the middle. All in all a fantastic uniform for display along with spare items.

WW2 Budapest Jewish Ghetto Atrocities – TABAKGASSE The Dohany Street Synagogue known as the Great Synagogue or Tabakgasse and is one of the largest in the World. It was first bombed by the Hungarian pro-Nazi group 'Hungarian Arrow Cross' in February 1939. It suffered severe damage from aerial bombing during Nazi occupation. In 1944 it became part of the Budapest Jewish Ghetto. Around 20,000 Jews were taken from the ghetto by the Hungarian Arrow Cross Party Police (Nyilas) and executed them along the river bank of the Danube. Today over a thousand of those who died in the ghetto from hunger and cold during the winter 1944-1945 are buried in the courtyard of the synagogue.
WW2 Budapest Jewish Ghetto Atrocities – TABAKGASSE The steel sign shows that it has been penetrated by at least ten rounds. The enamel surrounding each bullet hole shows the circular stress marks from the impact of the projectile, whilst the back shows the ragged ripped steel caused on exiting. Looking at the grouping on the right I would suspect the use of an automatic weapon. This was either caused by battle damage or more likely by German troops (thugs) carrying out target practice to intimidate the Jewish population.

Remains of Polish (probably political prisoners & not members of the Jewish community) not Jews) prisoners exhumed from mass grave by captured Russian or German guards.

I will enclose what research I have to date by working with an ex-college of mine based in Warsaw.

WW2 The Light Artillery Shoulder Patches - Pair These have been removed from their original uniform and pretty grubby, however the 458th Independent Light Artillery only wore this example of badge for fourteen months. So quite rare but rarer to come across a matching pair.

WW2 Third Reich Infantry Assault Badge JFS A classic example of a bronze infantry assault badge marked JFS for maker Joseph Fiex Sohn. This is good a solid example. There is some rubbing to the guilt on the higher areas. The badge was awarded to motorised infantry who took part in at least three infantry assaults on separate days.
WW2 Third Reich Leather Luftwaffe Map Case A fantastic M35 type German map case. Constructed of smooth leather with a wonderful patina. The map case consists of two main internal map compartments with compartments to the front for 5 pens/pencils, eraser and ruler. The pull tab for the eraser is also intact. The rear of the case is fitted with belt attachments. It would appear that the retaining buckle and strap on the front have been field modified for some reason.
