    WW2 Greek cap badge?

    sorry, no idea! Rich

    One for Gwar RAD Kantine ware!

    No idea mate! Not really my area and if you can't find anything then I have no chance! Best Rich
  5. Can anyone identify this badge that I found in my fathers belongings? I believe that it is WW2 and Greek, possibly air-force, but have not been able to find any trace of anything remotely similar anywhere.
  6. I have tried to discern what the actual marking could stand for, have you had any luck with identification of this piece ?

    BLC50 Photoflash Bomb

    with only 5 seconds it must have been difficult to co ordinate the picture taking with the impact or was it a parachute device?

    Bomb fin and SD2 restoration

    I think you are right , nothing to loose given the condition. Excellent hand work there. Welcome! Best Rich
  14. This is the back end from a 250Kg incendiary 'oil bomb'. Looks like it might have broken up without igniting.

    BLC50 Photoflash Bomb

    Late to the party, but here's my 'Blitzlicht' bomb. Not in quite such good condition having gone off. I've read they were used when taking night-time reconnaissance photos. When they went off, they apparently produced 60,000,000 candle power for 5 seconds. No wonder there's no paint left on it! Quite a firework!

    Bomb fin and SD2 restoration

    Hello Chris, Welcome to MCN, we hope you enjoy this great site. Thanks for the images....super job you are making on the re-build! Best to you.......Desert Rat
  17. Hi All - Just joined the forum, so thought I'd post some photos of some restoration I've been doing while having a bit of spare time on my hands during lockdown. - Had these German bomb fin relics a while. – Not many of these survive as they were generally speaking ‘blown up’! These ones sort of survived, by the looks of them, by hiding in a swamp. Over half of the cone piece had completely rotted away, which in turn meant a couple of the fins were no longer attached to anything. So a bit of fabrication, and out with the welder. A couple of edges had gone thin and had rust n

    Afrika Korps Trace Gold in Tunisia

    Bahbil, I am sorry mate it looks very 'Mickey Mouse' but I doubt that you will find any NAZI gold in Tunisia, if it were there it is probably long gone. With regards as to who to speak with about such matters I would recommend the Bundesarchive, pretty sure if there were any such locations they would be privy. I doubt looking on sites such as this will bring you any success in your quest. Just ask yourself why a German map would be written in English all be it bad English? Best Rich

    Afrika Korps Trace Gold in Tunisia

    Hello Richard, as you know, the afrika korps have buried a lots of boxes of gold in tunisia in many locations during 1942/1943. of course, they made a hand drawn maps of these locations. this not a joke, this map is one af many wich the gold is taken. of course i have verified this location and i found the underground building, but gold is not there, it's taken. the question is where can we find these kind of maps ? with who we can collaboriate to find it ?

    German ammunition???

    As stated, it depends as to where you are, but a lot of places will get you a heavy fine, plus your house is then gone over by Police and items are taken away and its looked at, its then a few months before you get anything back, this has happened in England by a few guys I knew and they had all sorts of trouble come there way

    Dealers lot of German helmets ?

    Not 100 % per cent if I,ve got this right, but I think I read somewhere that a large number of these, were stripped down and the metal parts melted down, and some where given to museums
  25. Well its a period item and as Rich said it could have a chance , is there another motive on the other side, I think I remember seeing something before like this and it had a motive on both sides and it was classed as being a real item, but its not to say they were all embossed both sides

    WW2 German boatswain bosun whistle eagle over swastika

    Hi, the picture is not the best, this has a chance as I am sure many things were commercially commissioned during the period but a better picture would help. What do you think about it and where did you get it? It appears to have a bit of age about it but like I say the picture could be better? Best Rich
