    It's taken me several years but I have just about completed Restoring my Pickelhaube. I picked up the rear visor a couple of months ago, still very nice leather and was able to sew it on. Everything is orig. except the side discs. Having trouble getting a set, i keep losing auctions! lol

    I've just acquired this German Gew 88, 1891 Spandau Arsenal. Has a nice bore. very solid. Regt. Marked. I picked up a Repro sling, but added my orig. detachable swivel to it. Has the thicker chamber wall (S, on Receiver) so will shoot regular 8mm(7.92x57). This one has not been converted to stripper clips so still uses the brass box clip.

    Just added this one recently. not as nice as my other but glad to add it. Missing grip screw, which I am waiting on replacement. Ser.#424,Clemen & Jung 1940. Sadly someone butchered the blade with a bench grinder, sharpening it.

    Maybe there was a curse on the helmet!

    Hi, I'm more in to Land Rovers than military collecting as such (though I do have a few military Land Rovers), but I've just joined this forum hoping to get some information on a helmet.... Way back when I was a kid (1970's) I found this helmet when I was collecting for a Scout jumble sale. I thought it was cool, so I bought it before the sale even started. I just rediscovered it, cleaning out my office, and thought I'd try to find out what it actually is - my teenage mind saw it as "paratrooper helmet" so that's what I've called it ever since. Google seems to think its an "airborne" helmet, and the markings suggest 1943. Any thoughts? Is it collectable, or should I just throw it in the back of my British Army Series III Land Rover to add interest?

    I have since picked up another matching one and some other goodies. I'll try to get photos and postings up this week!

    The leather bits! The larger part near the keybord is soft leather like a WW2 liner the rest quite hard. Rich

    I have been studying the history of the Free Irish Republic. It's history is so complicated and nuanced that it makes for a fascinating and somewhat contradictory endeavor, especially it's position during the second world war.

    I know this might sound like blasphemy, but does anyone know of manufacturers of replica Irish Republican Vickers M-27 helmets?

    Thanks! I really like the design, it reminds me of the Imperial einheitfeltmutzen.

    Guys, Again from the market Sunday. What a horrible thing to wear. You can see where the badge has been removed, there are a few moth tracks too but not bad. I suppose that these are getting old too! Rich

    Similar but very different in construction. No Beanie. The lining is removable to wash (second to last pic). I expect the outer cover is also removable /replacable but I haven't tried it yet. Rich

    Are these Panzer berets based on the same principle as the WW2 panzer berets? If so, is a small leather "Beanie" supposed to be worn underneath?

    I picked some of old leather scraps out of the skip last week from a cobblers shop I think. I was thinking just do the minimum keep the liner just bridge the broken parts with a scrap. I can send you some but it will come as a letter this time as the post pulled my pants down last time! I will post up some pictures later if you want.
