  2. Also worn on normal service dress 4-pocket tunic.
  3. The Panzer tunic would, quite honestly, need complete re-tailoring, you should see an example and compare it with an original! Then you would agree - however, the cloth is very good.
  4. Here are an obvious copies, Prussia, Württemberg and a few other versions for around 15 Euros upwards A few of these have been turning up lately, offered as originals, but in a very beaten up state, I think this example is original, it costs just under 300 Euros. There are also grey metal versions around. This buckle was worn only by Kgl.Sächsisches Schützen- (Füsilier-) Regiment Nr.108, which is very rare indeed. Example in picture is a copper coloured Tombak version, with a varation hook system to the rear. Note the solder marks, medallion many have been repaired or reat
  5. A German prisoner, captured near Otterlo,after the German counter-attack towards the tiny Dutch village in an attempt to cut the 5th Canadian Division spearhead. 17 Apr. 1945, Otterlo, The Netherlands.

  14. Scabbards etc. were often re-numbered. The finish on the blade looks ok, this could have been period done. The scabbard looks as though it could do with some oil, otherwise the rust may increase over time. In the first picture the bayonet is the wrong way round in the scabbard, always worn with the release button outwards.
  15. Am not an absolute expert on iron crosses, but I will take a guess, could it possibly be from the maker 65 (not always marked), which is Klein & Quenzer in Idar-Oberstein/Taunus, there could be many more possibilities, you would have to compare with other examples. The ribbon looks like a good original as well.
  16. Kürassier Denkmal in Pasewalk Former Offiziers Casino, Pasewalk Villa Knobelsdorff, former Standortälteste Dienstgebäude Oberstleutnant Hans von Knobelsdorff was the last commander of the Regiment, 1913-1919 Since after 1990 taken over by a private investor, restored and now a hotel.
  17. Suffolk Regiment (Infantry - counties Regiment). They don't look like WW1 or WW2 pieces. I had a few singles many years ago. First of all, they should be on rough khaki serge sliders, they were embroidered in white for WW1, and WW2 versions have black embroidery. Of course, there were also the denim battledress blouses in WW2, but I haven't seen matching insignia, although much British cloth insignia was printed in WW2. These were in place of the previous otherwise brass shoulder titles. Examples: Kings Dragoon Guards, WW1 and later Royal Naval Division, probably WW

  23. They could be WW1, WW2 or post-war, hard to say, these look a bit older, so they could be WW2. More commonly used were the cloth embroidered pips, as seen on WW2 battledress, etc. They have a good quality gilding and enamel. Also the split pins look vintage. Maybe someone else can recognise more. The pip in itself is a miniature of the Order of the Bath, with Motto: Tria Juncta In Uno, and depicting 3 crowns.

    Both, when parts of a uniform are missing, I look for original replacements.
