  2. I recently picked up an SA dagger blade for quite cheap price. Got a piece together scabbard through trade(SS/SA/NSKK pieces), Have an SA grip and cross guards coming. It is a "Frankenstein's Monster" but will be nice for display and cheaply acquired ! I figure I am saving all these parts from a junk pile, lol Plus its fun to see the finished result.

    WW2 British Beaded handle commando Knife

    Some more photos of the WW2 P2 Beaded and ribbed handle British Fairbairn–Sykes Commando knife I picked up in Utah. Did some research. I dont believe this one is a Wilkinson made piece, may be a J. Clarke & Son. About 1941. It is a "Bring back" piece, not an import.

    WW2 British Beaded handle commando Knife

    I'm on vacation for the Thanksgiving holiday. My sister and I went antiquing and I picked up my 1st Original British commando knife. Thanks to the modern age was able to get help from friend and research before I got it. I am so pleased with this one. Broad arrow proof mark on handle, a 4 under that, missing the tabs on scabbard but otherwise excellent!The price was a steal at $285.
  9. Hello All, I'm New here. I have a December 1945 hard copy of Report Of The Engineer Sixth Army Luzon Campaign 9 Jan 1945 - 30 June 1945. The book is in very good to excellent condition for its age. There is a typed signed letter with it from Brigadier General Samuel D. Sturgis Jr. dated 15 January 1946. There are also tactical maps in the back of the book covering the Luzon campaign. I am trying to find out how much this may be worth and where I could sell or auction it off. Thank you

    Thanks! That piece is a Anti-gas Cape/blanket, made of a rubberized anti chemical material. This is the Tropical version. Its large enough to cover a person. I have never completely unfolded this one.

    Unit marked Saxon buckle

    I agree with @Richard Auld. I wish someone would write a book on reading and Id'ing the regiments .

    Essel Bridge Battle South of Fallingbostel

    Rich So very sorry to hear the sad news about Albert and your other friends: life can be cruel. Tempus Fugit - it will catch us all eventually - and I realise that WW2 is very quickly passing out of living memory and soon to become 'history'. Best wishes and thanks for your message Steve

    Glass mine base.

    Guys, out of an attic here in Bergen, picking up some furniture for the wife and the lady had a lot of pickling jars and this one just jumped out at me. Just the base but she let me have it... To be fair she did not know what it was until I told her. Rich

    German made, Norwegian reissue

    What made me think it could be KM is that the liner was not removed to paint the grey? IE the inside behind the liner was green or so it looked? Gloss also used on boats. Too late one way or the other. Edit, what makes the liner splints post war for you, were they dated post war or just unmarked? Best Rich

    Possibly 9th Company. Rich
  24. Hey guys. I don’t collect as much as I used to but I came across this unit marked Saxon buckle yesterday and just had to have it. At 45GBP, the price was right! I have a few Saxon buckles but this is my first unit marked example. I assume 101st grenadiers….but anyone know what the 9 would represent? Cheers all and thanks for any help with the markings. Rob

    Ron Weinand, Daggers bloke, corrupt like most on WAF?

    Not surprised to be honest.

    Reichsluftfahrtministerium Erkennungsmarken

    I will but a DAK tag is complicated because they are normally from the unit that was mobilized. That is to say, you normally have no reference to Africa unless they lost their tag in theatre and received a replacement. Does that make sense , do you know what I mean?
