    1918 lf&c

    My other military collectible is a trench knife I found almost 40 years ago while cleaning out my grand fathers garage. I don't know anything about the history of the knife, just something he picked up while operating a small freight company in San Francisco in the early 1900's.
  2. Hello, new member here, wanted to say hi and show a couple of items I've had a long time that my grandfather picked up over the years in his business. The most interesting is a Japanese life boat binnacle taken in battle, given to my dad by my grandfather about 60 years ago. It has a hand written presentation attached from the captain and crew of the submarine to their admiral with names, date, location... roughly 10 years ago while I was looking up the subs name on google I found a book on submarine warfare that had a page dedicated to the events around the battle and retrieval of my compass binnacle.
