  1. I don't see it that often Kev and to be honest the other stuff dealing with day to day life is more interesting but not for a military forum. I will do a snap shot of a cross section as it deals with Reichsnaeherstand and farming stuff. Market as you know never really interests me, I love the history. PS got another lot out the skip today! Will have a sort through it! Rich

    UK medal collection from WW1

    I always thought they were named somewhere? Is this not the case for all UK medals then? Or is it just for the more fancy ones where it would be awkward? Rich

    Small group today I,R.77 Local to me

    Double post sorry?
  5. Guys, The WP is empty, I have pictured the interesting bits from the group. Looks like he fought against our 'new' Tankies, the pen entry is another defensive engagement at Cambrai, he has a release from a Reserve Lazeret in early 1919 so I presume he was injured in this, for him last engagement. I like the Gas notes pasted into the second issue Soldbuch. EK2 on 27,03,18, pen entry under the engagements list but I don't want to crease it as it is in good condition. Rich
  6. Guys, Kev has had to close his museum at Fallingbostel. A German collector has already taken the rarer stuff, I was a bit slow in reacting to events here. Kev has rather kindly given me the rest of items he didn't take, don't know why he didn't take them as all such items are unique but I should not complain! They are from a Stuka, a JU88 and a FW190. I have just found a Werk Nummer on a piece of the 88, I will have to do some searching!. To Kev I say thank you and I am really upset on his behalf as I know how much time and effort was put into the museum only to be folded by the German bureaucracy that prevails at the moment. Perhaps in the future he could find a venue free of politics that could house the heart of his collection that he has kept. Who Knows! Rich

    Like the repair to the rubber, period for sure as I believe this came out of the ground/water.
  9. I am not keen on it, I can't explain it! If I seen it I would not buy it unless it was a couple of €. The finish just looks off for me? Rich

    Cracking stuff! I presume you have researched them all? Is that possible? Rich
  11. It is becoming quite an industry over here at the moment, the tragedy is the damage to some original if not fancy docs! Rich

    Essel Bridge Battle South of Fallingbostel

    Your welcome! Mark Felton Productions on youtube covers this small battle, just seen it today! Rich
  15. Guys, This short engagement was recorded in the Ulrich Saft book Kriege in der heimat. These photos were taken post war by a young boy that used to play on the wrecked tanks, what a play ground he had! He is now in his 80s and has recently rediscovered these pictures taken before 1949 but after the war. It shows two of the tanks from the battle although he tells me there were 3 British tanks in a row in column of march and they were destroyed on the North South road that goes past the Hotel Kroepke which is still there today. those tanks were on the road circa 3 to 400m South of the hotel just before the slight bend in the road. The Tiger was further South and I will confirm the locations later. The flak was to the North East of the road described above. The old boy (Albert) has offered to walk the locations with me but he is not in the best of health. I will do it as soon as I and he can. Rich
  16. Yes, I see, that is not much to go on? I see the crows foot but not much else, sorry. Best Rich
  17. Justin, I think he means a Broad Arrow Marking, IE crows foot? R&S, Pics of the markings may help? Picture paints a thousand words! I must say UK stuff is not my bag though! Rich

    Unknown WW2 German Patch ID

    Could you post up the other too. I see what you mean Justin. I am not a fan of KM embroidered in general as they always look shoddy? What I do like about it is the backing thread is not blue, on the machines they used a cheaper thread as the backing, most modern copies are not that clever? Other things you could do is test it under black light, should not glow, particularly useful here with the white backing? Rich

    Essel Bridge Battle South of Fallingbostel

    It is documented in the book Krieg in der Heimat (zwischen Weser und Elbe) by Ulrich Saft. It was engaged and destroyed by a Comet with 6 pounder, starting a fire causing the crew to abandon the tank, later taken prisoner, I understand from the book. The Sgt that got the kill also was decorated too. Best Rich
