Royal Yugoslav white summer tunic, extremely rare piece I saved from the hell (see photo).

Noone wanted to buy it as restorers told it's not possible to clean it ;-)

Yesterday I got the buttons and epaulettes for it, but have to take new photos with those:

Let's continue ;-)

 

In my collection, I also have some technical and optical stuff.

 

Center piece of my whole collection is, and will always be I believe, is a top part of U-Boat attack periscope taken from Type VII U-boat.

It's the one of just a few such pieces survived ttill today.

I decided to collect them all, and whoever tried knows what decision that is :-).

 

Enjoy!

Hm, I just remember that I also have some pieces of cloth, strangely colored.

 

KM Grossadmiral flag, German-made Royal Yugoslav flag, Royal Yugoslav Konteradmiral flag, all extremely rare.

 

Enjoy!

Ah, I found another special item in the drawer ;-)

 

It's a kind of a narrow flag... with text dedication to the man who was the commander of one boat named by a bird ;-).

 

Maybe you can find out more, let's make it more interesting ;-)

Thanks for the nice words. I am glad you like my collection, as I am really doing my best to keep it in a good shape, but also to find

the best possible pieces around.

 

Now I will show you some daggers in detail.

 

First a three Kriegsmarine ones. Puma, WKC and Adolf Braun.

Adolf Braun came with a bad scabbard, so I got the right one, which is still not here.

...and the last three, Independent State of Croatia (WW2) naval daggers.

Rare daggers with extremely rare hangers and portepees (silver portepee is KM, as was used in the last years od war)

Silver portepee and according hangers are for ossicers, blue with different hangers is for senior NCOs. Lat one is incomplete, I'm just

keeping because of rarity.

 

Enjoy!

Now I will show you another diamond of my collection.

Original 1914 EK1 that was given to Linienschiffsleutnant Rudolf Singule, commander of Austro-Hungarian U-boat U-4,

which he was awarded for sinking the flagship of Italian navy, Giuseppe garibaldi in Adriatic sea in 1915.

 

This cross is published in G. Williamson's Torpedo Los book, and after going around the world it nested in my collection,

which, I truly believe, will never leave again.

 

Here are photos of the cross itself and few extremely rare photos of U-4 U-boat and it's comander with this cross:
