Lack of ammo?...
Just an old pic ...
what is the short big bore one on the end? (right)
German 10,5 cm LFH.
From the left to the right.
3 inch US
8,8 cm Flak 18
152 mm Russian
10,5 cm German ww1
105 mm US
7,5 cm French
clip 40 mm US 4x
40 mm Bofors 2x
4 cm Flak
25 pounder UK 7x
3,7 cm Flak 2x
3,7 cm Pak 2x
10,5 cm LFH
the 88mm Flak and the 75mm French are my favourite "classics"
My dad has one that he brought over from Holland, I think it says 105mm, i'm not sure, but i remember the year is 1945.
The 8,8 has been used 3 or 4 times.
Thank you Nick it's a nice one! Did this belong to the FliegerHorst Gilze-Rijen? it's a early version too.
that is cool!
Don't think so, this cartridge is for artillery not FLAK.
The FLAK M36 7,5 CM cartridges are longer.
ok get it, it would have been nice for you if this was a local find.
Indeed!!! But it was for free.... so very welcome.
my that 44 Kalendar looks very good and familiar, I had one at a time some years long ago, it was borrowed and I moved so happy greets to that bum who never returned it to me. Great collection of shell casings Nick, I see you have enough to start up a nice museum
great colectable Nick! Does anyone know the story of the KG Staffelkäptan mentionned on the first page? = Hauptmann Roll Kückens (the Christian cross could mean he was deceased in 1944)
Not familiar by me.
Here some small cartridges, airplane and AA amunition.
Actually it's Rolf Kückens , not Roll. Apparently he already took care of the calendar in 1940.
Nice amno by the way , the copper is shining as if they were new
Though I do not have any pictures of it yet but, just yesterday, I scored a nice Close Combat Clasp in Silver from a good friend and fellow collector.
A nice late German breadbag with belt. Mint condition.
That is a nice one. I have a (flower) wheat bag which is made with the same material but in white. Actually I should say part of a wheat bag, because the collector who gave it to me kept the parts with the inscription only.
Very nice Breadbag, thanks for showing it. I have as yet to buy one, but are wanting to buy two in the near future.
