  3. I bought this from the Gettysberg Museum relics shop. Its a Japanese good luck flag. I posted it on the Japanese reference forum and they are so condescending it was sick. I got that the Museum sold blood stained flags and that was a joke and that it should be illegal to sell Third Reich items like the Museum does bla bla bla. I think its a bunch of Japanese Nationalists there that hate all those not Japanese. The flag seems like an original to me but I would like others to look at it. I don't think its a See Bee flag. There are some very faded writings on it that can not be translated. I will try to get better pictures once I receive it. The Museum gives a life time guarantee that its original. Opinions appreciated.

    Is anyone hear familiar with a company called simply "WWII Gear"? If so, do they have positive things to say?

    Fortress ohmmeter

    Hello, I just received a non working LMP2 with two issues. The meter needle has come off the coil - easily fixable, of more concern is the broken coil on the left hand terminal. This is broken in several places and needs to be rewound. The left hand coil measures 100 Ohm and I presume from the feel of the wire it's not copper. Maybe Aluminium? The extract from the manual above looks like it has a schematic including the two coils. Does any one have a manual or any details? Also I am printing an adapter to a 3LR12 battery from thingiverse as these are difficult to find here. Many Thanks
  6. I haven't been to this site in some time, and I'm still having trouble with a particular item. I'm trying to find a Size 61 or larger Heer crusher cap (or a visor cap that can be converted pretty easily) in Gabardine, with a non-leather liner and non-leather visor (gabardine, plastic, imitation leather, anything). I know that that combination is a little out of the way (especially the last part), but I'm still surprised by how much trouble I've had finding even a single one at any price. Does anyone know of a place with a cap like that? This is one that I found from Epic, which was their last one, but it should give some idea of what I mean.

    SS Helmet

    THE HELMET ITSELF IS GOOD, HOWEVER I DON'T WANT TO SAT OK ON THE DECAL. NOT SAYING IT IS REPRO BUT, IN TODAY MARKET THERE ARE WAY TO MANY FAKES PASSED AROUND. BEST TO WAIT FOR OTHER COMMENTS TO CHIME IN. IF I MAY ASK- WHERE WAS IT FOUND?

    The German Tornister backpack

    Ahoj. Chtěl bych se optat k čemu sloužil kovový kroužek dole na boku u tornister M34? Díky
  9. I believe the desert pattern is now "officially " obsolete. New pattern fades quickly, I'm told.

    Hello, not sure if you anyone is looking for these items. If yes, let me know. Many other available.
  12. Hi my uncle recently died and we are going through his things, I have come across a charger for a radio I believe. It’s a Varta fast charge unit British army late 80s early 90s. I have contacted Varta to see if the can identify it but got no further forward. It was made for the NATO force The greenish color represents military equipment The charging unit is not complete (see empty cable compartment on the left) The strain relief on the charging connector is missing The power plug indicates an English (GB) version Almost all military chargers were manufactured in Hagen (for lead and NiMH batteries) à the company no longer exists if anyone can shed some light it would be appreciated.

  15. Hi everyone, I'm brand new here. I think my questions range over several different parts of the forum but thought I'd start here and maybe you guys can direct me to other areas if I'm in the wrong spot! I am doing some historical research and as a shot in the dark I thought this might be a good place to harness the power of a bunch of knowledgable people. I am researching a man named Wilhelm Gustav Schaal, and have been able to find very little about him, but I did find these 3 photos/documents. I wonder what the experts here can tell me about him from these photos? Rank, medals, history.... Absolutely any information will be helpful. Pretend I know nothing, because it's not far from the truth! 😂 Is anyone actually able to read and translate the documents? Thanks in advance for any research help you can offer! 🙏

    Hello from a newbie

    Hello everyone, I'm totally new here and just wanted to say hi! I am a history teacher and interested in many different areas of history especially WWI and WWII. Just started a bit of collecting but am more interested in "deep dives" - learning more about the stories and people behind the items. Thought I might be able to harness the power of the internet and the knowledgeable people here to advance my research!

    The German Tornister backpack

    Bjorn... what a real interesting read, thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm curious what the large hooks connected to? Where they for some kind of chest rig? As the Action Man Stormtrooper pack has similar hooks, and to be honest I always wondered why they were there.. many thanks Sean

  24. Hi, your pictures are not visible? Best Rich
  25. Richard Auld

    Is this ordnance?

    Hi, no idea but if you believe it might be it is better to let the experts handle suspected UXO? Explosives become more unstable the older they are. Good luck! Rich
  26. Richard Auld

    Can anybody help identify this bayonet?

    Hi, WW2 German K98, the give away is the Bakelite grips. It has seen better days but it is a good one, believe it or not they copy these too! Best Rich
