  1. Guys, as stated above. Big size picture. Rich
  2. Guys, as stated above, nothing fancy I'm afraid! I will have to load in parts.... Rich
  3. Guys, A perfect Gentleman, devoted husband and loving father, vetran of Iraq and Ireland. Taken too young and quite suddenly. His family are quite naturally devestated and will have to struggle through the near future as best they can, all who know them will assist where possible in the difficult days ahead but we can never replace Keith. He will be sorely missed by all of his friends. Words seem pretty pointless right now. Rich

    Thanks Justin, it is very raw at the moment but we do have other dogs and cats to keep us busy. He was a legend though as was Keith.

    I just used a bit of comecial paint stripper , pertol and water. I did have a bit of a flap as I noticed bits of the letters disappear but it seems it had been repiared by touching them up with paint, should be visible that the H is taller at the first picture. Bit of fun and it was for free!

  12. Guys, I was given these, not sure of their age but a pal thinks they are war time and German of course being Continetal. Rich
  13. From my German pal, similar markings but mine are a bit bigger, they from an old barn here in the area of Lueneburg. The farmaers are renound for recyling stuff post war. 'Inklusive Abdeckung für die Radmutter,Panzer IV.Ist nur eine von verschiedenen Modellen,Gruss Frank'
  14. Justin, these are used post cards I will post the reverse for the sake of completeness. Rich
  15. Justin, it is a local firm here in Hannover hense the Niedersachen horse in the circle. I think back then they used international language commercially like Germany instead of Deutschland. Grounded in 1871 now part of a large German concern with international bases all over. I am happy it is local just from when exactly I am not sure.
  16. Guys, As stated above. Sadly I oxblooded the chin strap a long time ago as it was a bit dry, ahhhh. Rich
  17. Guys, same source, two more bigger ones? From an old barn.

    Luftwaffe Skull Cap.

    Look at the time and effort that would have been used to produce this, no wonder they lost! LBA = Luftwaffe Bekleidung Amt which I am sure you already knew, similar to the KM. Shame the rest is unreadable. Rich
