  1. I'd like more info on the first vehicle, looks really interesting.
  2. I was stationed at Ferris Barracks in 1977-78 and trained at Tennenlohe. Was there when the range caught fire on June 10th, 1977.
  3. Looks like a Degree of Pocahontas ribbon from the late 1800s. They were the female auxiliary of the Order of Red Men.
  4. An odd pin for sure, but Jostens is a US company based in Minnesota with no factories in the UK.
  5. I've seen oddball looking ROK armor patches before, could be one of those.

    Old Dagger

    It could be a dagger, but keep in mind that many pikes made in Georgia at the outbreak of the Civil war had round guards on them.

    Old Dagger

    It could be a blacksmith forged pike head. The rear section would be driven into a wooden shaft.
  8. Mr. Jerry is right, I had a few of those "Iron Crosses" back in the late 1960s, my Uncle bought them at a surf shop in Carlsbad California.
  9. Richard, it would probably be easier to unscrew the fuze assembly, plus you wouldn't be marring any original paint like you would if you tried unscrewing the bottom plug.
  10. Nice find, I'm still searching for one myself.
  11. 42 1/2 inches sounds a tad large for a child's toy.
  12. I purchased a couple of the rum bottles in Germany back in 1977. They had reproduction labels because the original labels were mostly worn away. I was going to save one and bring it home but I wound up opening and drinking both. Very smooth.
  13. Looks period, maybe a military Cadet posing with his Father?
