    Some of this stuff was included in a TV episode of 'Combat Dealers' with Bruce Crompton last year - especially nice was a saucepan made from a Fallschirmjager helmet.........

    Really ? That sound excellent . I would have loved to see that documentary. The nicest objects I saw was in the Bonn history museum. They have made a historical fresque and in 1945 there is rumble in ruins and then just next to it recycled objets .
