There are many collectors of Robb items because of their high quality. They were granted a Royal Warrant in the late 19th century. Good scabbard leather. Blade has a camel motif which was used by Inverness silversmiths so has possibly come from one of them, Ferguson & Mc Bean ? Attributed to the Atholl Highlanders this is an outstanding top end piece, unfortunately with price to match but I suppose as a decent vintage Infantry of the Line example now costing £600/£700, it's a great investment.

1920'S / 30'S ANTI SEMITIC BEER STEIN A very rare German beer stein with strong anti semitic connotations mirroring the view that helped Hitler come to power. This is being sold as a historically important piece and in no way mirrors our beliefs and for the record, the last one I had went to Israel to a big collection there. Approx. size 20.5 cm/8 inches from top to bottom of the stein. 11.2 cm diameter at the bottom. This stein is 100% " One Look "original . The scenes on the stein show pretty very much every negative quality of the Jews, including the saying "Trau keinem Fuchs..." (Trust No Fox...). Some of the scenes depict the following: A German farmer together with three Jews holding documents, as they cheat him out of his land with the saying "Kauft nicht bei Juden" (Don't buy from Jews). A Jew presenting an invoice to a laborer, together with a saying that translates to something like, "The handicraft brings only a small salary while the Jew Cohn cashes in the big profit" A sleeping Aryan (Michel) is laying under a tree while two Jews are robbing him while he sleeps. Another scene is calling to drive the Jews out of Germany to Israel with "Michel" the Aryan showing the Jews the way out of Germany while swinging a club. "Deutsches Haus / Juden haben keinen Zutritt" (German House / No Access For Jews) is written under another scene where the Jews are being forced to leave The retailer of the stein is Joh. Korzilius, a company that is still in business today.The manufacturer was Deumler & Beiden. There are two dates on the stein, 1893 and 1910. 1893 being the year in which the anti-Semitic party had a huge success in the Reichstag election and 1910 was the year in which the "Deutschvoel-kischer Studentenverband" was founded, a very antisemitic right wing party. One of the founders, Wilhelm Kube, was later leader of the Prussian wing of the NSDAP and during the war was in charge of the "Jewish Question" in Weissruthien (Russia). Similar steins were auctioned off at Christie's in New York, Christe's in Amsterdam, Habsburg Feldman in Geneva and Sotheby's in Tel Aviv between 1988 and 2001 for several thousand dollars each. Condition is excellent with no chips, damage or repairs. It comes with a lifelong guarantee of authenticity.

93rd HIGHLANDERS OFFICERS SHOULDER BELT PLATE A pre 1881 officers SBP to the 93rd ( later 2nd A & S.H.) ,famous as The Thin Red Line.4 part example comprising burnished brass backing plate with hook and stud fixings . Top scroll with Battle Honours "Alma- Balaklava- Sebastopol " Centre section with 93 to centre, strap with "Sutherland Highlanders", Battle Honour "Lucknow" and St Andrew to the bottom. End scroll with Honour " Cape of Good Hope".All this within a thistle spray. The Victorian crown has been converted to Kings Crown suggesting this was still being worn after 1902 possibly by a senior officer who served with the 93rd. Apart from 2 side lugs being absent from the centre, north and south lugs still present and are perfectly adequate and a little finish loss on the backing plate to the sides of the crown, this is a very good example and interesting in that it continued in use after the amalgamation of the 91st and 93rd in 1881. The 2nd Btn Argylls still referred to themselves as the 93rd as late as WW2.
93rd HIGHLANDERS SILVER OFFICERS SKEAN DHU Beautiful and exceptionally rare officers Skean Dhu to the the 93rd of Foot, Sutherland Hldrs, later 2nd Btn A &S.H. and famous for being The ThinRed Line at the battle of Balaklava.

93rd HIGHLANDLANDERS ( A & S.H.) OFFICERS SILVER MOUNTED DIRK - ETCHED BLADE This is a beautiful dirk with a couple of issues.

The blade is exquisite ,acid etched with to one side, Regimental Battle Honours of Cape of Good Hope, Balaklava, Alma, Sevastapol and Lucknow. To the other side, 93rd Sutherland Highlanders. Clear makers details for J.B.Johnstone, Sackville St. London - Dublin. Good condition scabbard with good supple leather and lovely silver mounts. Knife and fork missing and their respective thistle furniture. It is possible to have these parts made if desired. The value of this dirk if it was 100% complete would be around £3,500 to 4,500 so this is a steal for what is a VERY rare item.

93RD HLDRS ( A & S.H.) OFFICERS SHOULDER BELT PLATE Excellent example of this very rare S.B.P. Silver furniture on brass backing plate. Hooks and studs to rear good. "One Look" 100% original. I'll let the pictures do the talking
93RD HLDRS ( A & S.H.) OFFICERS SHOULDER BELT PLATE Good early example having only the Cape scroll. End section of said scroll missing and part of the left hand thistle spray so instead of the usual £750 plus it's a bargain price. I have a jeweller who can make that missing pieces if desired, his details can be given to the buyer.
93RD HLDRS ( A & S.H.) OFFICERS SHOULDER BELT PLATE AND PAINTING C/W PRESENTATION CASE Beautiful set attributed to Ensign James Rosse 93rd of Foot. Comprises his early shoulder belt plate with single battle honour "Cape of Good Hope " dating it to between approx. 1810 and pre 1854 after which the Balaklava scroll was added. This makes this an exceedingly rare piece. Also a water colour painting of Ensign Rosse in correct coatee tunic of the period and in a beautiful lacquered oval frame. Both items contained in their original leather bound box with silk and velvet lining and perfectly pocketed to take the items. Named in gold lettering to the lid.

93RD HLDRS (A & S.H.) 1930 BIRMINGHAM SILVER H/M OFFICERS MESS CARD TRAY. I'm presuming this is to the 2nd Btn. A & S.H. who still referred to themselves as the 93rd at this time. Silver hallmarked. 93rd Regimental device to centre and copies of various officers signatures inscribed to the base. Officers would write their signatures and this would them be copied by the silversmith on to the tray. Good size approx. 10 inches with nice raised scalloped edge. Unique piece of Mess silver.
93RD HLDRS (ARGYLL & SUTHERLAND HLDRS.) OFFICERS SILVER PLAID BROOCH Beautiful example in unmarked silver. This is the larger size one. Domed back, hollow construction. Quoit with very sharp detailed thistle spray to outer part, this in high relief. Strap with Sutherland Highlanders and inner ring of thistles. Nicely named to the named " D. E ." ? The 2nd letter is in old style script and may possibly be L. Original stout pin and catch. No rubbing or damage and of particularly good quality.
93rd HLDRS TUNIC BUTTON. Very good condition brass button. Non maker mkd example. Victorian crown over "93". Pre 1881.
93RD OF FOOT. ARGYLL & SUTHERLAND HLDRS. OFFICERS CLAYMORE C/W PROVENANCE Amazing provenance on this mid 19th century Claymore. The Wilkinson unique number ties this one to William Fitswilliam Elliott Murray Kynynmound. He was the son of the 3rd Earl of Minto and related to Lady Diana Spencers family (Kynynmound). The claymore itself was used by the officer in the Zulu War of 1879. Condition is good overall with clear Henry Wilkinson acid etching to hilt. Double fullered blade in good condition. Shark skin handle c/w all it's binding. Nice steel basket. Red insert with some small damage to the red outer felt and blue trim but considering the age and the fact this was a fighting sword , not ceremonial, it's surprisingly good.No scabbard. Provenance includes showing him having bought his Commission into the 93rd in 1867 and later continuing with the A & S.H. and ending up with rank of Lt. Col. and having received a M.I.D. during his service, presumably in the Zulu War. Not often a sword with this kind of provenance appears on the market especially at what I think is a very fair price.
93RD SUTHERLAND HIGHLANDERS OFFICERS PLAID BROOCH Beautiful officers large size brooch. Thistle pattern with inner strap, this with raised lettering " SUTHERLAND HIGHLANDERS". Nice hollow domed back. Stout original pin and hook. Rare.

ADOLF HITLER BRIDGE KOBLENZ ENAMEL SIGN - LARGE A real rarity straight out the weeds from the son of a Koblenz local whose father picked this up at the end of the war. The Europa Bridge in Koblenz was formerly the Adolf Hitler bridge during the Nazi period. A.H. street signs occasionally turn up as most towns had such a street. There were only a handful of bridges named after him and to have one directly attributed to a specific bridge enhances the sign further. Good as found condition, it's dirty, bullet holed and bomb damaged as you would expect from an item from a bridge that was destroyed by allied bombing . Measures approx. 49 and a half inches by 13 inches. Historically very important piece and should really be in a museum.

BOER WAR - BOER MAUSER BANDOLIER - ENGLISH MADE Boer Mauser/Boer Pattern 1901 bandolier This was the most common bandolier used by the Boer forces. There were a few versions that can be seen on contemporary photos and in museum collections: 1. This is a “Martin’s of Birmingham No.14747 Patent” 60-round bandolier. Like so many other Boer uniforms, swords, accoutrements and weapons these were probably imported from England before the war. This bandolier consisted of a brown leather belt with a brass double tongue buckle. On the belt twelve slanted pockets were carried, each pocket sized to take a clip of five 7x57mm Mauser cartridges in clips, or five loose .303-inch rounds. Each pocket had its own flap which closed by means of a brass stud. The bottom of the pockets had five holes through which the tips of the cartridges protruded. Unlike the British MI bandoliers of the time, this bandolier was of an all riveted construction with not stitching. It had no steadying strap and no lace in the pockets to keep round seperate :

City of London Imperial Volunteers From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The City of London Imperial Volunteers (CIV) was a British corps of volunteers during the Second Boer War. After the outbreak of the Second Boer War in October 1899, volunteer corps were established in most counties of the United Kingdom to provide officers and men for service in South Africa. A corps of Imperial volunteers to be raised an equipped by the City of London was authorized by Royal Warrant dated 24 December 1899 with the name City of London Imperial Volunteers. The corps included an infantry division, a mounted infantry division, and a field battery (artillery) division. The infantry and mounted infantry divisions were composed of about 1,400 men recruited mainly from existing volunteer regiments in London and Middlesex, while the artillery division was composed of about 150 men recruited from the Honourable Artillery Company and the City of London Artillery. All the officers and men received the Freedom of the City of London before departure.[1][2] Most of the men proceeded to South Africa in January and February 1900, returned in October the same year, and was disbanded 1 December 1900. Colonel William Mackinnon served as Colonel commandant of the corps, with Major Gilbert McMicking in charge of the Field Battery, Lieutenant-Colonel Hugh Cecil Cholmondeley in charge of Mounted Infantry, and Arnold Keppel, Earl of Albemarle in charge of Infantry.[3] Field Marshal Lord Roberts was Honorary Colonel.

EARLY SECOND PATTERN F-S KNIFE - NICKEL PLATED During WW 2 the standard finish of second pattern FS knives was all black. Prior to this a limited number of all nickel plated knives were produced to simplify the construction used for the iconic First Pattern Knives and scabbards. After the First Pattern, this is perhaps the rarest of the FS series of knives. This knife was produced between April 1941 and early 1943 and is a superb example of the type. The 6 7/8"" long nickel plated blade is hand drawn and is in excellent condition. The brass hilt and steel crossguard are similarly plated although there are two very small areas of worn plating at the top of the hilt and the button from rubbing on the scabbard. The scabbard is correct for this pattern with a nickel plated chape and the narrow and intact elastic retainer. The sew on tabs have been carefully removed - not torn or cut off - as is often the case. Ref Flook's book British and Commonwealth Military Knives page 58 plate 122 for this pattern. The knife is offered at a modest price for an example of this quality and rarity.

Considering the age, this unit only existed 1797 to 1888, the H.P. is in very good order , the only slight issue being the the pins need re applied for the raised strap, not a lot of money and an easy job for any jeweller. This is the officer pattern the o/r's being brass and much less elaborate than this beauty.

Shrapnel strike to the right side just above the ear which has pierced the helmet and no doubt instantly killed the soldier.

Definitely original to the helmet with impressions on the shell where the wire has ridden up and down. Found in France.

There is an acceptance dome stamp to the inside crown of the helmet that clearly shows the date 1938. The leather of the liner shows the early tanning method and rates excellent condition wise, showing only minor wear and no damage. The chin strap is original to the helmet and is in nice pliable condition. It bears a maker mark and a faint 1939 date. Servicemans name to rear apron in white and evidence of a cloth name tag to the leather. I've encountered these named labels on helmets before. This one has been removed suggesting the helmet had a previous owner. Great looking large helmet that displays nicely and is among the rarest to find in any condition. The National colours decal was given a swipe of paint to cover it as per the ordered decal drop in 1940. At some point it's been uncovered again and a large percentage of the decal is still present. Double decal Navy's are the hardest to find of any arm of service because they were produced in far fewer numbers and this is a very low price for such a rarity, examples I've seen in the market place are £2,500 plus. 100% original. The cheapest genuine apple green double out there.

GERMAN M16 DUCK BILL HELMET - BATTLE DAMAGED - BING A very rare front line helmet by the scarce maker G.B.N. ( Gebruder Bing), better known for their top end tin plate toys. This one has sustained battle damage with a shrapnel strike to the rear crown. It also looks like someone has then put 4 pistol rounds into the poor chap as there are outward dents with corresponding holes through the liner. The liner surprisingly is good with all 3 pads and leather band, one pad still with it's cushion and still with it's original draw string. This is the correct size 64, the only size produced by Bing and has the scarce " Duck Bill" front visor found on these models. The shell retains most of it's original field grey paint . The helmet is dusty and dirty, this is how it came to me and that is how all items go out. Superb all original combat vet.
GERMAN M16 MEDICS GERMAN HELMET I'll let this one speak for itself. All original inc. horsehair pads, even has an original undamaged chinstrap. Featured in WW1 German Militaria book a few years ago. Helmets like this are now virtually unobtainable.
GERMAN M35 CONDOR LEGION HELMET Rare Legion Condor German M35. Finished in a smooth brown paint to the shell with a tropical tan paint to the inside of the apron. This is very often the case with LC helmets and I have enclosed pics of other examples with this. Original Luftwaffe blue to the rest of the inside. All original with near absence of markings as is the norm with helmets made for export. Early single banded aluminium liner band. Full length chin strap with aluminium buckle. Ink soldier applied markings to the inside ( see pics ), one of which looks like Pz. Panzer ? I am including a Spanish eagle helmet badge which did not come with the helmet but is an original wartime piece. Great condition and not to be confused with the later Spanish made Elmetto. When the M1935 combat helmet went into production in 1935, units of the German Army (Heer) and Air Force (Luftwaffe) eagerly awaited the finished product. Much to their dissatisfaction, the first shipment of completed helmets did not reach their units until 1936. This delay, in part, was due to a number of large foreign orders that took precedence over the requests of the German Armed Services (Wehrmacht). It is important to note that German firms produced the M1935 helmet for foreign export prior to World War II. The largest of these shipments were sent to the Chinese and Spanish governments. While virtually identical to the German issued M1935, most of the exported helmets did not have the same type of liner systems found in Wehrmacht issued helmets. In addition, the majority of foreign export models were not stamped with production code numbers and maker's marks like those found on original wartime era German combat helmets. There was no standard colour brown used and it is possible the repaints were actually done in the field. When the German Condor Legion arrived in Spain , they had unilaterally painted their Luftwaffe-blue helmets brown.
GERMAN M35 DAK AFRIKA / EURO CAMO LUFTWAFFE HELMET - ARTILLERY UNIT MKD. Great looking combat helmet. This one the tan colour is the Afrika pinkish hue as opposed to European theatre ordnance tan so this guy has served in North Afrika before being transferred to either Italy or France. Then he has simply added some green spray on top of the DAK paint. Great " Been There " example, all original with good combat worn liner and full length maker mkd. and dtd. chin strap.It's definitely ex DAK, I know that pinkish colour so very possible as said before, this guy went to Italy/Sicily or another European theatre . Named and also mkd. up to a Flak/Artillery unit. Good size 66 Quist shell.
GERMAN M35 DOUBLE DECAL ARMY HELMET - NS 68 - COMPLETE Excellent helmet in early war smooth paint. Huge rare size 68. Very good Heer decal. State shield also good to about 85%. This interestingly has had a brush stroke of paint put across it in an effort to hide it as per the decal drop directive of 1940 when these shields were supposed to be removed. Obviously the lazy mans way as opposed to scraping it off. Original 1940 Maker mkd and dated chin strap. Double banded aluminium liner band. Batch no. B 2. Good leather liner which is approx a 57. All original helmet straight from an American vets foot locker and exactly as it came back in 1945. Brian Rices book confirms this helmet to be a double decal Heer of early 1940 manufacture and having a 1940 chin strap. Also they were a direct pre cursor to the M40 pattern B series helmets.
GERMAN M35 DOUBLE DECAL ARMY/ HEER HELMET Top shelf helmet. Rare early helmet in a large size. Early smooth paint to 95%. Excellent Wermacht Adler and State shield. Both are as nice as I've seen. The eagle decal is almost 100% and still very bright. State shield has some nice slight age crazing and is almost 100%. Large Q 66 shell with early lot no. 4500. Confirmed in the Ice book as having left the factory with this exact configuration around late 1937. Nice liner c/w original draw string. Chin strap although original to it is a later 1943 dtd. and maker mkd. example. Not unusual given this is an early helmet. The long end has a tear at the rivet otherwise very good with the steel buckle still retaining it's grey painted finish. All in all an excellent helmet of a quality not often found these days.
GERMAN M35 DOUBLE DECAL LUFTWAFFE HELMET - EARLY DROOP TAIL EAGLE Top shelf helmet. Very early SE 66 shell with lot no. 3345. Retaining almost all it's original smooth paint. Very nice 1st pattern Droop Tail eagle.Very good State shield. Scarce single banded aluminium liner band with hair oil darkened liner, this with it's original draw string. C/w it's period aluminium buckle chin strap. Brass helmet pins with no signs of being messed with. Great all complete original .
GERMAN M35 SE 68 SINGLE DECAL SAWDUST CAMO HELMET SIZE 68 Huge sawdust camo reissue which has been originally a double decal. Nice decal and most of the applied finish present apart from some loss in the crown area, finish remaining to around 90%. Still with it's scarce early issue single banded aluminium liner band, this as usual cracked hence the need for the later double banding. Nice sheepskin liner and still with the original draw string. Original to it aluminium buckle with Berlin maker and 1938 date, this in good supple condition. Cracking helmet and in the sought after very large size. SE 68 and lot no. 3607
GERMAN M35 SINGLE DECAL ARMY HELMET - M35 SNOW CAMO Great looking combat helmet.Large size 66 , possibly 68 shell. NS maker. Reissue helmet and ticks the boxes with the Ice book on helmet criteria on NS reissues. True front line vet this one and with a large percentage of part removed whitewash snow camo. Good decal. I can't make out the lot number due to paint but it looks like 2717. Correct zinc liner band with sheepskin and still with the original drawstring. The liner tongues are all good and pulled together at the top as I would guess it was too big for the soldier ? Good original to it full length steel buckle chin strap with an ink maker mark ( indistinct ). Large percentage of the drab field grey finish remaining and evidence of having had a camo underneath and as stated a fair amount of snow camo overpaint. A helmet that has seen a lot of action.
GERMAN M35 SINGLE DECAL HEER HELMET - ORIGINAL PARADE FINISH - COMPLETE Super helmet and rare to find one with the early smooth dark green paint finish. The silver army decal is in good shape and has toned to a nice golden colour.Size 57 liner with owners initials. NS 64 shell with batch no. 5864. Brian Ice's helmet book confirms this helmet configures exactly as to how it left the factory in late 1937. Both liner and chinstrap are great, the chin strap being maker mkd. and dated 1940. Original draw string. Helmets like this are scarcely encountered, never refinished in field grey or reissued. Letter of authenticity from Bill Shea included
GERMAN M40 HELMET ARMY SINGLE DECAL - ET64 Good clean helmet by Thale Iron works. Good decal. Shell retains a large percentage of it's original smooth field grey paint. Some reddish/ ochre paint around the helmet pins would indicate it possibly having had a camo applied at some point during it's working life. Great liner with just a nice amount of service wear. Original draw string present but broken. Batch no. 5491. No chin strap. Priced to sell.
GERMAN M40 HELMET ARMY SINGLE DECAL QUIST 64 - NAMED A superb all complete original combat helmet retaining almost all it's original matt field grey paint. This one is what's called a wartime re issue, i.e. updated with matt paint , re decalled in some instances and issued again. Interestingly, the decal has been applied on top of an earlier one which can just be made out on close inspection. The decal is a stunning looking army which has toned to a golden colour but in my opinion is not a Kreigsmarine. Q64 and batch no. DN 116. Good liner with 3 tongue ends slightly a/f and dark which is usually blood so this guy possibly had a head wound. Original steel buckle chin strap, good but with tip of the long section absent . Owners name " BRAUN FALKO " applied to apron. Fantastic looking helmet.
GERMAN M40 HELMET EF 66 - COMPLETE Exactly as it left the factory, verified in the Brian Rice book on German helmet codes and configurations. Field grey shell retaining most of it's paint.

GERMAN M42 HEER SINGLE DECAL HELMET - NAMED Perthshire Black Watch soldier bring back and just found in his garage when the family were clearing his house. Mid 1943 ET ckl helmet size 64, lot no. is indistinct but looks like 2781 ? Correct zinc and sheepskin liner system for that period. Liner although in good supple condition has one tongue missing. Named to soldier in ink and another name is part present next to the missing tongue so it would appear to have been issued twice. Original steel buckle chin strap with field repair . Good bright decal. Good percentage of original field grey matt paint. One Look original vet bring back.

GERMAN WW1/WW2 TRANSITIONAL HELMET COMPLETE I've left this one exactly as it came in, c/w with it's full length mkd. chinstrap. Now most helmets I see have no chin straps because sellers remove them and sell separately for £150/160 pounds on their own. Originally a blue grey this has been overpainted period in correct field grey . This with a percentage of flaking. Excellent M35 pattern, clean, size 56 liner and maker mkd. full length chinstrap. This is the WW1 M18 or Austrian type shell with no strap fixings on the inside of the apron. Mkd. to crown " N.O. " Transitional helmets, i.e. WW1 helmets fitted with WW2 type liners were used inter war during the Nazi period, and wartime they were used primarily by 2nd line troops. Take off the price of the chin strap and this makes it a very cheap helmet.

GERMAN WW2 VEHICLE MEDICAL KIT BOX & CONTENTS - SS ATTRIBUTED ? A super " Been There" late war item being the combat medical tin carried in most 3rd Reich vehicles. This example left the factory in the standard late war ordnance tan and has seen a fair bit of action . Lid has a Red Cross symbol to the centre and black stencilled " VERBANDKAFTEN" ( Dressing Box). Finish is worn and with some rust bleed. One of the 2 snap clips is a/f. There are various elements of the first aid items contained inside .To the inner lid there is a paper label which is SS mkd. As with all SS items these days I'm very suspicious but this is how it came to me years ago and it has age wear commensurate with the rest of the box. So it's make up your own mind on this and I've priced the box as a standard kit not with an SS price. The reason I'm not guaranteeing this 100% an SS item is, I've never had one before. No doubt this will not stop the many Instant Experts out there making a comment as to whether it is or not. Make up your own mind, either way it's a fairly priced original medical box and if it turns out to be SS your are" Quids In" as they say. A very cool item that would look great in a combat display with helmets, mannequins or similar.

IRAQI DESERT STORM BATTLEFIELD PICK UP This one from a friends son who was a tanker in Desert Storm and brought this home. Some sand still evident inside. Original green colour and not with the usual hand applied sand colour paint. Clearly drawing inspiration from the American M1 Helmet which had first appeared during World War II, it differed significantly in being constructed from compressed layers of fabric coated in plastic. This inevitably offered troops a much lower degree of ballistic protection than a steel helmet, or modern composite helmet such as the PASGT. The M80's liner is a direct copy of the Riddell liner seen on American M1 helmets made after 1972 and used a US type T1 chinstrap. The helmets were supplied painted dark green, this was often overpainted in a desert tan colour which has a tendency to rub off, revealing the original colour underneath. They also have a tendency to fray at the edges, showing the layers of fabric used in their construction. In 1990 an Iraqi-made version of this helmet, the M90, appeared which was of inferior quality construction. These later helmets are prone to splitting at the edges and have a protective rubber rim. The post 1990 helmets were supplied in desert tan colour only. Both types of helmet can be found with a variety of Arabic and military unit markings, and are sometimes painted white with red markings for the Iraqi Military Police. Many Iraqi helmets were abandoned in large numbers on the battlefields of Iraq and Kuwait and proved to be popular souvenirs with western soldiers returning home from the Persian Gulf. Now very collectible especially in the original colour like this. VGC and all complete.

Good double banded aluminium and sheepskin liner system with square D rings.Soldiers name to rear apron , EICHENAUER. Original chin strap with aluminium buckle. This has been cut so possibly a casualty and has rot to the chin area through service wear so although full length the condition is not the best. Dry stored so not a lot of rust between the shell and wire and interaction is less common with galvanised wire, that said, the basket is most definitely original to the helmet which came direct from the vets family 12 years ago. Great " One Look " original combat helmet. Size 64 shell, maker unclear due to the re issue paint , Lot no. 39335 ?

Brownish tan overpaint usually associated with Tunisia in the latter stages of the North African campaign.

M42 GERMAN HELMET ARMY SINGLE DECAL 2 TONE CAMO - AMERICAN VET BRING BACK This one out of Michigan a few years ago and purchased direct from the vets family. Story goes it was taken from a pile of helmets from surrendering P.O.W.'s. Vet liked it because it was the only one with camo paint. He took the helmet and put it in his tank.Later the chin strap was utilised for a running repair on said tank. That aside it's a cracking helmet , much better in the flesh as it were.

PAIR BRITISH BRIXMIS COLD WAR SLEEVE BADGES Scarce formation badges for Brixmis. The real deal, removed from uniform examples. These are early circa late 40's BRIXMIS existed from 1946 – shortly after the end of the Second World War – until the eve of the reunification of Germany in 1990. Created by an agreement to exchange military missions, the stated object of BRIXMIS – and the Soviet equivalent in the British Zone, SOXMIS – was "to maintain Liaison between the Staff of the two Commanders-in-Chief and their Military Governments in the Zones".[1] This liaison was undertaken by 31 members – 11 officers and no more than 20 others – appointed to each mission. These liaison staff were issued passes allowing freedom of travel and circulation, with the exception of certain restricted areas, within each other's zone. Such "tours", as they became known, were conducted in uniform and in clearly identifiable vehicles. Nevertheless, although never openly stated, this liaison role also presented an ideal opportunity for the gathering of military intelligence through reconnaissance and surveillance and the occasional 'borrowing' of military matériel. This opportunity was fully exploited by both sides. BRIXMIS was ideally placed to "test the temperature" of Soviet intentions from its privileged position behind the Iron Curtain. However, and perhaps more importantly, it offered a channel for communication between West and East via its secondary but significant role of liaison – the initial reason for its establishment.

These flat profile gravity knives have a composite handle, stainless steel blade and are worn in a scabbard patch, stitched upside-down on the flying coverall leg.

RAFVR LAPEL BADGE WITH MEMBERS NUMBER - SILVER Scarce R.A.F. Volunteer Reserve members mufti badge. Unmarked silver. Numbered to rear "60286" Good condition with no rubbing to high points. The RAFVR was formed in July 1936 to provide individuals to supplement the Royal Auxiliary Air Force which had been formed in 1925 by the local Territorial Associations. The AAF was organised on a Squadron basis, with local recruitment similar to the Territorial Army Regiments. Initially the RAFVR was composed of civilians recruited from the neighbourhoods of Reserve Flying Schools, which were run by civilian contractors who largely employed as instructors members of the Reserve of Air Force Officers (RAFO), who had previously completed a four year short service commission as pilots in the RAF. . Recruits were confined to men of between 18 and 25 years of age who had been accepted for part time training as Pilots, Observers and Wireless Operators. The object was to provide a reserve of aircrew for use in the event of war. By September 1939, the RAFVR comprised 6,646 Pilots, 1,625 Observers and 1,946 Wireless Operators[1] When war broke out in 1939 the Air Ministry employed the RAFVR as the principal means for aircrew entry to serve with the RAF. A civilian volunteer on being accepted for aircrew training took an oath of allegiance ('attestation') and was then inducted in to the RAFVR. Normally he returned to his civilian job for several months until he was called up for aircrew training. During this waiting period he could wear a silver RAFVR lapel badge to indicate his status. By the end of 1941 more than half of Bomber Command aircrew were members of the RAFVR. commanders. Eventually of the "RAF" aircrew in the Command probably more than 95% were serving members of the RAFVR.

RBK - REICHBUND DER KORPERBEHINERTEN - LAPEL BADGE Original membership pins of the Reichsbund der Körperbehinderten (Reich Association for the physically handicapped) are not seen very often. This organization stood contrary to the general ideology of the Nazis who promoted a race of physically and mentally fit. Those who did not fit into that category often became victims of the euthanasia program. The disabled veterans of World War One were organized in the NSKOV. The RBK must have been a rather small organization and therefor this pin must be considered a rare find! Good condition. One tiny chip to top of enamel. Ges gesch mkd.
RED ARROWS 1ST SQUADRON LEADERS FLYING HELMET - ATTRIBUTED A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO OBTAIN A GENUINE & SUPERB (RED ARROWS) Mk2 "BONE DOME". Flown during the 1970-71 display season in the Folland Gnat aircraft then used by the team. The helmet is attributed to the Late-Great Squadron Leader 'Bill Loverseed" Team Leader of The Red Arrows 1970-1971. The helmet is in well used condition with plenty of knocks and scrapes having for many years been used as an RAF recruiting 'tool' in various places and at various air shows and displays. It was finally sold off as a charitable donation many years ago. The visor screws at left end of the visor need replacing but overall the helmet is clean and complete having had the normal "interservice green" inner electrical and webbing conversion and general mod' common to 99% of all operational helmets of the period. All "white" RAF Mk2 helmets are very scarce and seldom seen for sale at all. Used also on many of the types being flown at the time such as The Lightning, Vulcan and the Phantom etc. Raymond Eric William Loverseed was born on an RAF base in Egypt in 1932. Bill joined the RAF in 1952,[17] and flew with the Red Arrows in their first year, 1965, and also in 1970.[18] He took command of the Red Arrows in 1971 after the previous leader, Dennis Hazell, broke his leg after ejecting due to an engine failure in practice in November 1970. Four Red Arrows' pilots were killed in an accident at RAF Kemble in January 1971, when two planes carrying two men each collided in mid-air. Bill Loverseed was promoted to Squadron Leader in July 1971,[19] but resigned his commission in May 1972.[17] He married four times. He flew a Buffalo transport plane that crash-landed at the Farnborough Air Show in 1984, and a Piper Cherokee aircraft that suffered severe icing and crashed in Newfoundland in 1987. He died in 1998, on a Dash 7 that he was piloting on a test flight over Devon.[20] A WONDERFUL ITEM OF GREAT HISTORICAL INTEREST ( Much sought after I will guarantee that you will not see anything like this again in a hurry !) . C/w it's carry case.

US MARK 1 TRENCH KNIFE - MARKED U.S. 1918 The No.1 knife was first made in France for the US Government before US manufacturers could get into production. It is not known however if this is a French or US made example as it is unmarked. The blade, hilt and scabbard configuration however point to it being probably made in France by Au Lion, ie one of the early knives. It has a 5 5/8" double edged blade with a degree of age darkening patina. The knuckle hilt is cast brass with US 1918 cast in lettering. The blade attachement to the hilt is by a pointed nut often referred to as a "skull crusher" The hilt is unusual in that the quillon appears to have been slightly bent upwards presumably to better protect the hand and/or avoid snagging. The scabbard is iron, originally copper plated and chemically blackened. The scabbard hangers have been crudely repaired by brazing. Full details on this knife can be found on pages 25/26 of Book III of MH Coles "US Military Knives."
VERY RARE ORIGINAL ANTI-SEMITIC THIRD REICH BEER STEIN TRAU KEINEM FUCHS AUF GRÜNER HEID UND KEINEM JUD BEI SEINEM EID! (TRUST NO FOX ON THE GREEN MEADOW AND NO JEW TAKING AN OATH) THIS SCARCE ITEM WAS ONCE SOLD IN JULIUS STREICHER'S NUREMBERG! This stein in excellent condition is 7-1/2 inch tall, it is 4 inch in diameter at the bottom. It holds one liter (1 L) of beer. It contains an anti-Semitic illustration and the anti-Jewish saying which has also been the title of an anti-Semitic book for children. Both the stein and the book are from Nuremberg. We don't know the manufacturer of the stein but the book was published by Julius Streicher's Sturmer publishing house. This stein probably was sold as a souvenir to those attending the Nazi Reich Party Days that were held in Nuremberg until 1938. These anti-Semitic steins are very hard to find. this has never had a lid although the generic mould allows for one with a small indentation to the top of the handle. VGC

WW1 5TH, 4/5TH SEAFORTHS OFFICERS CAP BADGE A genuine example of this super rare badge. This badge is very contentious with all different opinions running around as to what makes an authentic example. Most people have never actually seen one of these never mind owned one. In my experience there are 2 main variants. One is the hallmarked version which is of high quality and carries hallmarks for the Great War. The other is the locally made versions , much cruder and made by jewellers in Beauly and other highland towns. These are most definitely not pin back. There is no room for a pin so the tosh about they should be always be pin back, is just that. That holds for the Sgts. badge only.Another myth is the feathers should not project above the glengarry, not true, please see Dornoch history website where there is a period photo of an officer wearing this badge with the feathers clearly seen worn well above the height of the glengarry This one I have is a Beuly made one and came from an impeccable source which I will pass on to the buyer. Lovely condition, silver washed finish Please note, the copies of these are very clever and in most cases of much higher quality than originals with SILVER stamped to the feathers. This one is guaranteed 100% original and has never been on the market .

WW1 ARGYLL & SUTHERLAND HIGHLAND CUT AWAY TUNIC Lovely condition WW1 highland cut away o/r's tunic by Moore and Taggart of Glasgow. Very good size for WW1 being approx. 38/40 chest. Khaki lining cloth as found on these tunics. Argylls brass buttons. Evidence of having had shoulder titles. One very small hole otherwise as nice as they come with no moth. Tunics like this are very difficult to find and this was one of two I got last year from a house in Oban. Tunic only. The following is an excerpt from an article on Great War tunics from the GWF. Late war tunics and Canadian tunics did have khaki liners and late war ones also had stitched labels. When troops returned home their old war worn uniforms (which only survived about 1 month of front line wear) were taken off and destroyed, new ones were issued so the troops looked good when they disembarked in Folkestone, Dover etc. For these reasons most surviving genuine WW1 O.R. uniforms will be late war productions and could therefore have tan liners and stitched labels. Indeed I would be far more wary if I saw a tunic with white liner and remains of a paper label. The misunderstanding that all WW1 liners were white with paper labels is quite common. WW1 seems to have been the swan song for Moore Taggart & Co as military outfitters and they featured strongly in the kitting out of Canadian units over the period 1913-14.

WW1 CHINESE LABOUR CORPS TRENCH ART SHELLS - WESTERN FRONT Very cool find. Two, 1917 dtd. British shell cases hand inscribed with flowers, a dragon, fish, butterfly and Chinese characters. The characters translate to "Peace to the whole world" and "Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter". The Chinese Labour Corps was formed in 1916 essentially to free Allied troops for combat. The workers mainly aged between 20 and 35 served as labour in the rear echelons or helped build munitions depots. They were tasked with carrying out essential work to support the frontline troops, such as unloading ships, building dugouts, repairing roads and railways, digging trenches and filling sandbags. Some worked in armaments factories, others in naval shipyards, for a pittance of one to three francs a day. At the time they were seen just as cheap labour, not even allowed out of camp to fraternise locally, dismissed as mere coolies. When the war ended some were used for mine clearance, or to recover the bodies of soldiers and fill in miles of trenches. Men fell ill from the strange diet and the intense damp and cold, and on occasion they mutinied against their French and British employers or ransacked local restaurants in search of food. Their contribution went forgotten for decades until military ceremonies resumed in 2002 at the Chinese cemetery of Noyelles-sur-Mer. Exceedingly rare and they make a nice matched set although the etching is different on both.

(In May of 1917 due to a leather shortage the liner was redesigned. The new liner continued with the earlier “three pad” system but changed from a leather band to a steel band made from sheet metal. The pads were now crimped into place on a steel band. The pads were now to be made from white chromed leather (Russian leather) instead of the brown vegetable tanned type. This change was made in the hope that the chromed leather would hold up better in the trench conditions. Steel band marked " 64 - F C B 18 - A.K.E.". Shell stamped with a " W "( Hermann Weissenberger & Co. Stuttgart-Cannstadt).

What makes this badge especially interesting is it has the etched thistle I've only found previously on Kirkwoods badges. Also W & S ceased to trade around 1915.

WW1 SCOTTISH O/R'S CUT AWAY TUNIC - MOORE & TAGGART , GLASGOW Mint example of a Great War war Scottish tunic made in Glasgow by military tailor Moore & Taggart. This SD jacket is in condition I've never found before and came out the woodwork along with a 2nd one I will be listing later. Good size for the period, approx 38/40 inch chest to suit 5' 8". General service brass buttons. Belt hooks present. This has light khaki lining as used by Moore & Taggart from 1913. Please read the following from a discussion on these tunics. You will not find a sleeper like this easily. No moth or damage. Evidence of having had shoulder titles, Regiment unknown. Late war tunics and Canadian tunics did have khaki liners and late war ones also had stitched labels. When troops returned home their old war worn uniforms (which only survived about 1 month of front line wear) were taken off and destroyed, new ones were issued so the troops looked good when they disembarked in Folkestone, Dover etc. For these reasons most surviving genuine WW1 O.R. uniforms will be late war productions and could therefore have tan liners and stitched labels. Indeed I would be far more wary if I saw a tunic with white liner and remains of a paper label. The misunderstanding that all WW1 liners were white with paper labels is quite common. WW1 seems to have been the swan song for Moore Taggart & Co as military outfitters and they featured strongly in the kitting out of Canadian units over the period 1913-14.
WW1 SCOTTISH PIPERS SLEEVE BADGE - GORDON HLDRS. Nice brass sleeve badge as worn by army pipers in the Great War and WW2.

However, any man could volunteer for the Imperial Service Section and serve abroad in times of war, which entitled him to wear this badge

WW1 WOMENS VOLUNTEER RESERVE CAP BADGE Very nice correct pin back example of this scarce badge. J.R.Gaunt London tablet to the rear. Bronze finish with old polish residue to back.Original over long type pin. The Women’s Volunteer Reserve, (WVR) formed following the bombardment of the East Coast in December 1914, was the most prominent of the voluntary military organisations for women. The declared aims of the WVR were two-fold: to ‘free more men for the firing line’ and to ‘organise more succour for the helpless ones in the community’.The work and training undertaken by the WVR included running canteens for soldiers, transporting the wounded, camp cooking, first aid, and motoring. More contentiously, its members wore a khaki uniform. The Honourable Evelina Haverfield founded the organisation. The Women's Volunteer Reserve was sponsored by the Marchioness of Londonderry, the Marchioness of Titchfield and the Countess of Pembroke and Montgomery. These first voluntary unpaid unofficial Women's Services were all founded and controlled by influential Ladies. The WVR was open to critiscism in that it recruited mainly from the affluent classes. The women paid for their own uniform which was khaki.The style adopted by these women was to influence the design of future Womens Service uniforms.
WW1 WOMENS VOLUNTEER RESERVE OFFICERS BRONZE CAP BADGE - GAUNT Rare badge for the WVR . Bronze officers pin back. Gaunt tablet to rear. Retaining almost all it's officers bronze finish.

It was founded as The Women’s Emergency Corps in 1914 by Evelina Haverfield and Decima Moore to contribute to the war effort. The Corps later evolved into the Women’s Volunteer Reserve. The WVR was mainly involved in domestic fund-raising activities, and was primarily made up of middle-class women, due to the fact that they had to pay for their own uniform.

WW2 BRITISH CRUISE VISOR HELMET - RARE The rarest of all WW2 British helmets produced for use primarily for bomb disposal teams and armoured car crews. There were 5,000 helmets produced in this configuration with the pull down armoured visor. Good overall " As Found " condition, untouched and totally original. My first one since 1985 and it's unlikely I'll find another. Named to inner apron and correct 1940 date. I believe there was only one production run of these helmets so all should be dtd. 1940. Steel Helmet Visors Seventy-five per cent of all blindness suffered by soldiers during the Great War was due not to eye disease but to injuries caused by shell, bomb and grenade explosions. The great majority of these injuries were the result of fragments of metal which penetrated no deeper than the eye itself and which, had they struck elsewhere on the body, would have caused only trivial harm. The question of some form of eye protection designed to reduce the incidence of eye injury and blindness was therefore raised immediately on the outbreak of the Second World War by Sir Richard Cruise, an eminent opthalmic surgeon. Captain Cruise, as he then was, had in 1917 designed a form of chain visor which could be attached to the rim of the British Mark 1 steel helmet. Although it was intended to help reduce or prevent injuries to the eyes, in practice it proved to be unpopular with the troops. A modified and improved version was developed in 1918 but this, too, failed to find acceptance and eventually it was withdrawn. In 1939 samples of a further modified 'Cruise' visor were sent over to the British Expeditionary Force in France. This version was so designed that when not in use it could lie under the rim of the steel helmet. However, the reports of its use in the BEF were so inconclusive that 5,000 visors were manufactured to allow for a large scale trial to take place; unfortunately, military events overtook their production, and before they could be despatched Dunkirk had fallen to the Germans and the survivors from the BEF were back in Britain. Trials were carried out instead by troops of the Home Forces in the autumn of 1940, but reports submitted by the troops trying out the Cruise visor and the advice of the Medical Research Council were against the adoption of any form of metal visor. It was found that rain made it difficult for the wearer to see through the visor, and the drops of water could not be shaken off easily. Stereo-scopic vision was impaired, the wearer's field of vision was reduced, and his ability to see in the dark whilst wearing the visor was markedly affected. In the light of these adverse reports the Army Council decided against any form of protective visor being adopted, and although work on Perspex visors was being undertaken no satisfactory type was developed , and in 1941 on the advise of the Medical Research Council, the whole matter was dropped.
WW2 BRITISH DESPATCH RIDERS HELMET Very good example of this now sought after helmet. The helmet has had very little use and still retains the light tan colour to the leather sweat band.

" and also has the soldiers number so is researchable. Lovely well detailed o/r's badge. I've left this as found but will clean up nicely if desired. No touree or tails, the latter likely cut off for front line service as was the norm. Waxed lining cloth torn in the crown. A few moth nips to the diced band but a nice original and directly attributable to the KOSB. Some service wear to inside which I like to see. Medium size approx. 56/57.Silk edged.

WW2 OSS STILETTO This extremely rare knife was reported to be issued to OSS troops during WW2 and post war during the Bay of pigs invasion of Cuba. Although issued only to US troops it is British made and is almost identical to the FS knife. It is an all black knife with the blade and bronze grip being chemically blackened, unlike the FS knives the knurling on the hilt extends to the crossguard. The blade is hand drawn and is 6 5/8 long, overall length is 11 1/2". The scabbard is of novel construction with a "pancake flapper" steel belt frog with a rubber retaining ring for the hilt. The frog base is is elongated and is bent upwards at the tip to enclose the leather body. The pancake flapper is unusual in having two slots instead of four, this appears to be a factory modification since the edges still retain vestiges of their original green paint.

WW2 RAF & RN CAR PENNANTS - AIR MARSHALL & ADMIRAL - FAMOUS ATTRIBUTED PLUS MORE A fantastic attributed group of items being attributed car pennants kept as souvenirs by a RAF driver who drove these important figures. 1 - 2 RAF staff car pennants, one for an Air Marshall, the other for the Commandant of the Royal Observer Corps. 2 - Admirals car pennant. 3 - Personal hand written letter from Admiral Fraser of North Cape. 4 - RAF drivers service book. Stanley Ridgeway was an RAF driver from Dec. 1945, this would suggest that the Air Marshall and ROC Commandant flags were for Percy Ronald Gardner Bernard, 5th Earl of Bandon GBE, CB, CVO, DSO as the dates and appointments tie in. The personal letter is addressed to " Ridgeway" and is from Admiral of the Fleet Bruce Austin Fraser, 1st Baron Fraser of North Cape GCB, KBE , it is hand written, signed by him and thanks Ridgeway for his services so Ridgeway obviously drove him as well thus explaining the navy pennant. Fraser is probably the most famous admiral of WW2 having been involved in the sinking of the Scharnhorst and was the British signatory to the Japanese formal surrender in Tokyo Bay in 1945. All the pennants are in good condition. They are all in the open weave type construction used at the time, all with good colours, no moth and have pole fixings. The letter is in an Admiralty envelope and on Admiralty paper. Ridgeways service book ties in the dates. A superb lot of items to 2 of the most famous personalities of WW2. Very Rare
