  11. In the video linked here, Japanese submariners are seen apparently pouring a shot of sake in each eye before battle. Does anyone know the origin of the custom? Was it just for submariners?
  12. Hello, Segelschulschiff Albert Leo Schlageter. Best,Morten.
  13. sorry I can't help you, never seen the like before, does it have any military markings, AM or WD arrow?
  14. any chance of better close up pics of the markings and the body of the flag? Wartime flags usually have obvious signs of the weave in the fabric
  15. Well, I would say that this would be typical for a smaller boat or unit due to the size one would expect. I thank you for showing more detailed images. I hope you can find some more information. Best Regards, JustinG
  16. Well, I am going to weigh in on this piece. I believe this is a quality replica. Best Regards, JustinG
  17. Hello! I am from Estonia and I`m new here. Someone is selling Knight`s Cross of the Iron Cross and I thought of asking some help identifying it. What do you guys think, is it real or fake? Best wishes, Martin
  18. Hello gentlemen, I would like to share with you this helmet of the "Paulista" model of the Brazilian civil war of 1932. During that war, steel helmets were used for the first time in Brazil. When the war between the state of São Paulo and the federal government of Brazil, São Paulo began to prepare for the conflict. With that, São Paulo started making steel helmets based on 2 helmets from the first war that a Brazilian collector had brought to Brazil. Three different models were manufactured at the same time: one based on MKI and two based on Adrian. One of the two models based on Adrian had its design changed by São Paulo. That is why it was called the "paulista" model. You can see little difference at the top of the helmet. The war only lasted approximately 3 months. São Paulo lost militarily, but won some political victories. I got this helmet from a distant relative of a veteran who served with the forces of São Paulo. It had been stored since the war when the family decided to see it with other old items. I just bought the helmet. It has two significant damages: One on the outside front, and another that looks like it came from the "inside out" direction. I hope you enjoyed. And I would like to hear your opinions about this helmet and its strange marks. Thanks!
  19. Correcting an error: The correct thing about the inscriptions on the helmet is: "They are:" January 1988 "," May '89. This helmet was used in January 88 "and also" guja ".
  20. The Serbian helmet has a shaved red star and some Bosnian inscriptions on the inside. They are: "January 1988", "May '89. This helmet was used in January 88" and also "gluttony". I don't know what the last one means. On the front flap, it says: "II S V" with pen and "P7Z", crossed out on top. I don't know what conflicts this type of helmet was used for. Would you have any good ideas? The other helmet is a German model from DDR. It was a model used during the Croatian war by the Croats, together with other models of helmets. There is an inscription on the liner that I can't quite understand ... I would appreciate any help! I hope you enjoyed it and would like to know your impressions and what you think !!! Thanks

  23. Last two for von Felbert look like Finnish Order of Liberty 3rd/4th Class and Finnish Commemorative Medal (both WW1) but perhaps check if he served in Finland. The photo if not clear enough for me to be certain. I can add nothing more on Muller.
