    Rucksack info

    Common post war construction from original parts either straight from the production line or made from discarded equipment such as Y-straps etc. The most I have were probably used as school bags for kids. Not that uncommon over here. Best Rich

    Ben, I used to post a lot on GMIC. https://gmic.co.uk/topic/65195-some-random-postcard-pics/ I have a box somewhere of items like those in the above link, is that the sort of thing you are after? If you do a search of my user name on that forum and WRF you should see the sort of thing I have. I am not sure what my pal has but if we strike a deal I will swap with him for something my direction. Rich

    Brexit Impact, if any?

    Well. What a week in EU politics, 'Shotgun Ushey' as she is known over here is now set to take on running the EU after she has destroyed the Bundeswehr? I don't think she is home and dry yet as there may be some legal procedings following her after the Gorch Fock disaster. We still have a tank regiment here on high readiness with only a companies worth of tanks, laughable! All my German pals are very upset with her replacement already, I will have to do some homework on her but it does not sound good. The German press has warned that 500,000 German jobs are at risk with a no deal Brexit, that is something Mr Junker never told the locals over here and they are quite worried about it. The car industry is Germanies strongest card and if that is damaged then they will not be able to pay for Merkels promise that we will 'work though it' because you need jobs in the first place. A Germany in recession would be the end of the EU and in its current form I don't think that would be a bad thing. The United States of Eurabia will only spell disaster for our kids and grand kids. I honsetly don't know how this is happening in Europe. Our grandparents gave so much for this shti! Rich

    Welcome John, I was there at the start too but it quickly morphed to mini WAF. It is quiet here but a stable platform, well layed out. best Rich

    I will send him the pictures of your boards today. Rich
  9. I have seen similar here in Germany, here it is only single woven and is fishing net, yours looks like some sort of cargo net. I suppose the soldier could have made it himself?! Rich

    Perhaps we can trade, I have a german pal that likes these sort of thing and I can trade with him for my junk? I will hopefully see him tomorow and will show him the pics if I have sorted my handy issue (just broke my pad). Rich

    Fresh out the skip!

    Last of what I have scanned, I like the heavy gun/motar with the small railway that they build to serve the ammo.Also the gravewreath from AH himself, the French armour and of course the Dambusters handywork! Rich

    Not yet, perhaps the other half of the stuff recovered by the lads that work there will reveal something! With regards why, it is all too common over here, some one dies house is cleared and it goes in the skip. Different to UK in that it is probably quite difficult to find a house that has not changed hands in the last 70 years? Rich
