  1. Must agree with Mark . Does look typical of the Lebel with that big brass handle. Regards Pete
  2. It was for sure not British .I joined in 1986 and they were still wearing WOOL shirts.Now you may say ,oh nice and warm.These were so rough that you had to shave the inside of them.when yo went running you had to tape your nipples up so they would not bleed. So British (NO) not for me but the cut of a Third reich uniform is something else. Best regards Pete
  3. Well we knew it would not be long. So far 2 members of the public killed one policeman and thankfully the murdering Muslim terrorist.

  7. Hi there guys. The above dealer in Germany. Does he reply to others or is it just me he doesn't. I have been trying to purchase an item. I do not speak German so have been sending messages to him in English. Is he on holiday or something ????? is anyone in regular contact with him. Regards Pete
  8. They were also selling ,or rather (sold) several high end red cross and social awards that were fake about 4 in all . I didn't bother to tell them.I did that somewhere else and got bared from the site.So will not be making that mistake again. If you are after an EK go to WAF of GCA there are always good original there for sale.Or centurion militaria he has got a cased one with the carton for sale.It is mint and 100% original. I can assure you of that as it is mine oh yer Regards Pete

Thanks to all the guys that have posted I have seen some things I never had. that Welsh set of colours just beautiful workmanship at its best .Both of them. Best regards Pete
  14. Well it seems so far ago now nearly 40 years I had the bug ,there were many old boys about from WW1 as I got older I managed to talk more out of the old soilders.Proberly because I would lisiten.I could not get enough.I was always so happy when the piano tuner would arrive .We were not well off just had a big front room and me dad got it for free. He had been gassed and had lost his sight lovley man .He liked to tell a yarn so I was transfixed. As I was with the WW2 guys ,as I always attended Remembrance day I guess I was (as you may say) a face.People would always be giving me stuff. Sometimes my dad would go and make it safe. got given a small pack once with a messtin in it and inside that were 2 grenades wrapped up.My dad was a Navy explosives guy so no big one .By the time I was 15 I had heaps of the stuff from WW1 WW2 I gave it to a museum before I went into the army with no intention of ever seeing home again.To cut a long story short I kept a Hitler Youth knife until I got married and was asked to get rid of it. Funny thing I started to get interested again and guess what.The next thing I brought was that very knife after about 10 years.Then I was hooked again spent a small fortune on various items to finally focus on Red cross Social welfare ,plus a few Eagle orders. I intend to start with the Red Cross but first here is the Collection Of Red Cross and Social welfare so far.My best regards Pete
  15. This was sold at Christmas .The very happy chap in the US of A is totally made up.This in turn has allowed me to look for a new purchase. HAPPY DAYS
