  2. Hi guys, In respect of the above, can I remind all new members to the forum, that you have to be a member here for at least a month or too before trying to sell your items, This has been a standing rule on the forum, it is a safe guard to protect the members, There have been in the past a few people who come on here, sell items then leave and then the members find out that they have been scammed. So to prevent this that is why we have these rules, by all means post your items that are not for sale so the members can see and comment, Thank you

  4. As you are all aware, we have a spammer on this forum, who will not go away, I remove him on a regular basis, but It seems that he has found a away to not be flagged as a spammer, I have sent a message to Lenny as I think he is the only one who can get him removed from the site , Waff and I are the only ones who are dealing with this at the moment, but there are other Mods on this forum who do not and I think its about time that they get involved, after all thats what Mods are there for, is is not

  10. Sorry Mike, I did not mean to sound unappreciative, yes they are still interesting but incomplete sets are really only good to complete missing cards in books. Like I say if anyone needs specific cards from these sets let me know which you need and you can have them for nothing if they are there. Best Rich

  11. Glad it ended up with you Norrie, it's in good hands now. And thanks for sharing his story. I always get a twinge of sadness run through me when I read these, more so when he fell so close to wars end.

  13. Bit busy at the moment as the wife wants the shop painted outside, it is not a small task. Got a bit of junk today and I will post it tomorrow, getting a visit from a pal tomorrow too, so see what that brings. He is interested in the Afrika Jacket and he has some good paperwork to trade... It is also summer holidays, it always slows right down then.

  14. There are many off the track tunnel and bunker complexes here on the ranges but as it is MSB (Mil Sy Area) it is illegal to film or photograph and attracts a hefty fine and is more than my jobs worth....

  15. This area keeps us busy over here. We catch people fairly regularly but the odd few get through, this is in a Military Security Area and it is fairly dangerous as they used to play FIBUA in this barracks, many holes and unstable brickwork where they have 'mouse holed' etc.... When we handed this back to the Germans it was in top condition, such a shame to see it now.

  21. I hope that you and yours are coping with the current situation. Brain picking time … Just had in a big estate. It included one of the UVF-stamped MH carbines from the “Larne” --- I was wondering whether you knew anyone in the “6 Counties” who might be interested..

  24. Stefan, your best bet would be to go to the many shows that are starting to open now the lock down is over, you start small and work your way up, read as many books as you can, that way you will learn what is good and what not to buy, there are bargain to be had

  27. Guys, this chap was the stepfather of a friend of my wife here in Germany. She was a school teacher and has settled here too. I don't know if much can be researched about him? He was active here during the 'Berlin Air Bridge'. Rich

I cannot believe how lucky I have been finding some amazing militaria items over the 5 years I've been collecting..I'm starting to think I might put the lottery on...:) Anyway, at my local boot sale today, now, i have a couple of house clearance type guys who hold stuff for me, to see if I'm interested....they have my number, but they never call, think they just like to see my face when they show me what they have found for me...so, one of them asks, if I would like to see an old jacket they got, and a satchel...:) Long story short...and when I got back up off the floor, I pai

  37. With you on that Mike, they are one of the most expensive and with the black paint on the beading you just don't expect that level of service/incompetence from an alleged reputed dealer, particularly with such a common item? Should make people think twice about trust. Unless of course it was bought as a repainted cross, we may not have the full picture to be fair. Rich
