With it was a captured German flag, signed by many members of the 29th Reconnaissance Troop in Germany in 1945

NOTE: if anyone feels offended by the German flag, please let me know and I will remove it....

Thank you, and in fact the book itself is a blue version... I think generally they are red/maroon, but this one's blue...

OH MY LORD! :w00t: Thank you, thank you, thank you, sooo much for posting your collection Johan. Just incredible! I've been so curious to see it for so long. Very well done. Those uniforms alone, :jeal0001:, and nearly all ID'd! You are a lucky man, i am glad they are part of such a fine collection of someone who can preserve the history so well. Where do you find the room to keep them all! Keep it up mate :wink2:


If you can read this, thank a teacher, and, since it's in English, thank a soldier.

Johan, is there anything you don't have?! Fantastic collection with a very broad scope. Do you allow visitors? Certainly hope so. Jack Angolia

Hi Johan, great collection as I already knew from what I have seen over the years.

 

However there must be a lot that I have not seen, so shall I book in with you for just the one week or two weeks,

please let your wife know of my dietry requirements, and could I have a south facing room I like the sun first thing

of a morning while taking breakfast in bed, is it possible that you can arrange some English language newspapers for my stay. Thanks :lol:;)

 

Johan you have been busy adding all that quality collection to the forum and please continue doing so, we all want to see more of it. :thumbsup:

 

Cheers ( Lewis )
