  5. Who was Albert Frey of LAH, and why did he commit suicide at age 90?  Did he participate in Oradour-sur-Glane?

  6. Great collection Jim, the variety of the paperwork is amazing. My 1915 award:
  7. I have a F&L 449 1943 Helmet , my understanding they only produced MK2 until 1942. 1943 also on chin strap helmet retainer. Helmet is defintely brodie style & not turtle. Is it possible some F&Ls were produced early 1943 ? I have not seen any but someone here may know.

    I am glad you had a chance to "double check" your throw bin. Nice, JustinG

    Bullet Plane Trench Art.

    Same letter, number and year and S67. These are the same as the ones on my bullet (picture 5, Bottom left). I believe these to be 7.92 Mauser bullets.
  10. Hi Jaime, this is the later Charakter als General der Infanterie Hans Sehmsdorf (1876-1936), a PLMträger
  11. Sonderbefehls

    Bullet Plane Trench Art.

    It has been sent away to be restored, with a new tail end added. Possibly too, it will get some wheels, there are two holes underneath, suggesting it did have wheels originally.. I'll try and remove the proppeller and see what the markings/stamps are on the end of the bullet. Should be interesting..
  12. I was about to throw out some stuff, when I decided to have a look inside, for a last minute check. I'm glad I did, this what I "found".

    The Silver War (Wound) Badge

    Yours shown above @Graham B seems to have the letters CPF vs the others shown above with C.E.F. (CEF Canadian Expeditionary Forces) CPF was unknown to me and I stumbled across this interesting piece of information from this site: https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/p-e-service-front-lapel-badge-171055666 It says "For Service at the Front" The rarer being the "C.P.F." issue for 1917 and the Canadian Patriotic Fund numbered on the reverse" I was a bit confused as to why a service award would be for a "fund" rather than a proper group or detatchment? I couldn't find the proper search information to further discover why or how they would have changed that designation from CEF to CPF. The medal on that page had a manufacturer of Birks Canada. Here is what I found on that: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birks_Group Would love to learn more. Thanks for all who have shared and contributed. I am really intrigued with these awards. Best Regards, JustinG
