  4. FS - I know the Kfz.17 is yours. Anything in the tent belong to you?
  5. This is one of two Austrian Kapsch devices that I've seen. One type is in the hands of LA6NCA, and the other is this larger type. I think this is the first one of this type that I have seen for sale.
  6. Hello Kriegs, I am not into comms but this is a very nice item.....which I would have bought. Great display piece! Best to you...Desert Rat/ Ian
  7. Many Thanks Funk, Yes I thought it was there, I am not sure when I am coming to Normandy probably in September on my back from Frejus. It would be very interesting to see it though, I will send you a message when I am in Normandy and grateful Thanks for your kind offer. Best Wishes....Desert Rat/ Ian
  8. The photographs of the exhibition were taken at the Vierville D-day museum, while the photographs with the German tanks were taken at the Overlord museum in Colleville (at the cemetery roundabout). My part of the exhibition is now over, it was just during the D-day week so if you wish the see the collection you will have to come and visit me. Get in touch via PM once you know the dates of your visit and we'll arrange something... regards, Funksammler

  10. I must say, that rarely does a nice item like this come up, and a good price was paid for it.
  11. Hello Funks, Thanks for the images, is this just by the (I think the US Museum) by the rond point / roundabout above the entrance to Omaha Cemetery. And do you know when it is on this year as I hope to visit it.....as I do every year to Normandy. Many Thanks and best to you

    Many Thanks Tony, If I find one I will send you the images to check it please. Didn't realise at all that they sold for as much as that, the one I was going to buy sold for ÂŁ550. Maybe get one sometime just a memento for my Dad who fought the buggers in the Western Desert with the ----8th Army, as you know the story. Take Care and Very Best to you...Ian

    If you ever need help to ID just let me know. Better safe than sorry, especially at the high cost of these.

    Thanks for showing us Tony, It's very similar to the one I wanted to buy (but the seller classed it as a 1942 original & no markings) but I think it had a red or yellow band/ ribbon very thin around the centre? Best to you...Ian

    Hi Ian, the M40's can bring $1400 and up in US dollars. Depending on condition and date of manufacture. Things to look out for are the grommets inside, and the insignia, just to name a couple of things. Cheers ! The side caps or "piss cutters" can be had for $350 and up.(US dollars)

    Great Caps Tony, I nearly got one from an auction site, but I wasn't sure of what they were worth, the only thing that put me off finally there were no stampings/ ink marks in the red lining? What is the rough price for a good original one of these...Please? Best to You...Ian

    Picked up this cap many years ago. It's from the late '50's early '60's , movie studio prop. Mabe for "Tobruk" or one of those films at the time. Didnt have any eagle when I got it, only had the white Waffenfarbe soutache(since removed). I also had a tropical Gas mask can (had a '44 date in it) Painted Hollywood DAK yellow. was used in the series "Band of Brothers". I do still have some German Gaiters from that series. Just sharing, these things kind of have there own place in collecting.

    An almost Identical cap to mine, right down to maker and date of manufacture. From Robert Kurtz book "AFRIKAKORPS"

    @Richard Auld Rich, I would be happy to have a look when you find it. Here are some details of mine. Mine is missing the sweatband. But otherwise is typical M40 cap of late war manufacture. Made by Carl Halfer 1943.
  21. This box is fitted to theodolit foot system , 2 mens are using the theodolit and follow target opticaly i have a picture illustrating it .
  22. Hello i don’t believe it’s a single handset, i am aware they exist some items like the batterie sprechzusatz ln 19021 , it’s similar in size as a tornister eb , there is a 5 pins connector for a handset or other telefon item , there is also a place for storing the 3 x 1,5 v batteries for polarizing microphone. Also an inductor like on FF33 i had seen that selling on kpemig site may be last year , he did’nt know what it was. I can’t find if i have record the pictures. a bad picture can be found when you go on arthur bauer site search ebbe pictures and look to item 53 . when reading a book on light flak, i discover also that they exists different systems to connect , radar , scheinwerfer, kommandogeraet entfernungsmeter , i own one of those box , but i know 4 type exists I will add later on picture anyway i don’t know if this batterie sprechgeraet is same as sprechgeraet fur kommandozwecke . pierre

    Tony, I have a cap but I am not happy with it I will try and find it and perhaps you can look at it. They are red inside right? does yours have a maker stamp? Rich
  24. Well, It is supposed to connect to a 10 pin round plug, so I assume not the usual hand-free set. It is described in the L.Dv. 625 which I'll try to locate/procure. Cheers
