    Crashed BF 110

    What are the chances, however small, that there are two crash sites in the same vicinity, not necessarily from the same night but one German night fighter and one British bomber or a Mosquito intruder? Looking in the Nachtjagd book mentioned before there is no mention of NJG-6 being involved on the 28/29th January 1944 night raid but in the pilot listing it does mention Gunselmann as being killed on 29th January 1944 when his aircraft crashed near Celle and it confirms his unit as 11/NJG-6. In the book it does mention however that on the 29th January 1944 the night fighters of NJG-6 (although no mention of IV Gruppe) were vectored on to a daylight raid of the 8th Air Force that were attacking Frankfurt and lost 6 Me-110's. The 6th loss was a possible collision with a friendly aircraft while two P-38 Lightnings also collided and came down near Laudert.

    There was a possible load of 10,000 rounds (a shit load of ammo) I.E. 2500 per gun. If an enemy aircraft collided with the turret I suppose it was possible a bit of all that link was taken by the impact?

    A collision with the rear turret of a Lancaster might explain the British ammo in the otherwise clean site? I will have to look at the parts and see if any could be from an allied plane?

    M16 German Helmet.

    Nice M16 helmet, just needs a liner and chin strap to complete it. The marking/stamp seems to be "ET6?" can't make out the last digit. Looking at the lugs, it looks like a "ET62". The helmet was "found" earlier this year (?) and should look super when finished.
  17. Here is the Tiger now, fenced off. I do believe it's to be moved to Saumur Tank Museum for a restoration project (?).
  18. Thanks for comment! Cheers,Morten.
  19. Although not my area of collecting, I'd go for US civil defence. The way the liner is fixed, plus the anchor stamp.
  20. Hallo, Maybe is this helmet a personel made helmet. Probelly for the first years of the defencing for the konvoi chips? They have no helmets,so, the most of the sailers bought a helmet, maybe sutch a helmet? Sorry for my bad English writing Greetings, Rudi

  22. I've been trying to figure out what helmet this is for months with no luck finding anything. I've talked to a few collectors and they had no idea. I've now resorted to the internet. There are no stamps anywhere, just remanence of a sticker on the inside. The clip on the chin strap says "anchor bran" with an anchor stamp. I've attached some pictures, hopefully this is enough information. Thank you!

    Starting to think this does not make sense as the 11th section were close to the Black Sea in Romania if Lexicon Der WH is correct?!
