  1. The shop will be closed on Tuesday the 15th of October back on Wednesday as usual.
  2. Watched this at the weekend, it was actually quite good. The Norwegian version of Downfall.
  3. Black Watch Glengarry "Ladies from Hell" Dark blue crown and body with red pom pom, the Black Watch did not use a diced band. The regiment was created as part of the Childers Reforms in 1881, when the 42nd (Royal Highland) Regiment of Foot (The Black Watch) was amalgamated with the 73rd (Perthshire) Regiment of Foot. It was known as The Black Watch (Royal Highlanders) from 1881 to 1931 and The Black Watch (Royal Highland Regiment) from 1931 to 2006. The source of the regiment's name is uncertain. In 1725, following the Jacobite rebellion of 1715, General George Wade was authorised by George I to form six "watch" companies to patrol the Highlands of Scotland, three from Clan Campbell, one from Clan Fraser of Lovat, one from Clan Munro and one from Clan Grant. These were to be "employed in disarming the Highlanders, preventing depredations, bringing criminals to justice, and hindering rebels. The force was known in Gaelic as Am Freiceadan Dubh, "the dark" or "black watch". Cap badge with the motto Nemo Me Impune Lacessit "Nobody provokes me with impunity" The Black Watch (Royal Highlanders) is permitted to retain its most famous distinction, the red hackle. Originally thought to be as a reward for their achievement at the Battle of Geldermaisen in 1794, in fact there is evidence to show that the Red Hackle was worn by the Regiment during the American War of Independence 1775-1783. Under a plan devised by Lieutenant General Alistair Irwin and approved by General Sir Mike Jackson, on 16 December 2004, it was announced that the Black Watch was to join with five other Scottish regiments – the Royal Scots, the King's Own Scottish Borderers, the Royal Highland Fusiliers, The Highlanders and the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders – to form the Royal Regiment of Scotland as the Black Watch, 3rd Battalion, Royal Regiment of Scotland (3 SCOTS) The battles which have contributed most to The Black Watch history have been those in which the odds have been most formidable. From Fontenoy to Fallujah with Ticonderoga, Waterloo, Alamein and two World Wars in between the Black Watch has been there when the world’s history has been shaped.
  4. I think the fact that Combined Operations Command is featured would date it around 1940 the date Combined Operations was formed. The code G.P.D. 365/18/33 would probably also help date it, but so far I have not been able to work out the code.
  5. Nice quality private purchased Luftwaffe Signals NCO's visor cap features a black center band with brown wool waffenfarbe piping to the crown. The front center of the cap has a second pattern silver washed alloy Luftwaffe eagle and silver washed alloy wreath with painted national tri-color cockade. Black patent leather chinstrap with two black painted metal retaining clips and two black painted metal buckles. The chinstrap is secured to the cap by two black painted metal buttons. The interior of the cap is fully lined in brown rayon. Celluloid center diamond remains with maker beneath of 'CARL HALFAR, UNIFORM-MUTZENFABRIK, BERLIN N.20 Prinzenallee 74'.

  8. Hi Bayley, here is the poster in question, it's really just a propaganda poster to raise moral. It's a chart showing badges, decorations and medals for the Royal Navy, the Army, Royal Air Force, Royal Marines, Merchant Navy, and Combined Operations. The right hand side shows medals awarded for bravery and general service medals. The General Production Division G.P.D. was one of the few divisions to remain in place throughout the war,it undertook technical work under Edwin Embleton. The G.P.D. often produced work in as little as a week or a fortnight, when normal commercial practice was three months. Artists were not in a reserved occupation and were liable for call up for military service along with everyone else. Many were recalled from the services to work for the Ministry in 1942, a year in which £4 million was spent on publicity, approximately a third more than in 1941. £120,000 of this was spent on posters, art and exhibitions. Many extra designs were pre-prepared in order to cope with short lead-times and the changing events of war. As far as I know the 365/18/33 is just a reference number.

  12. Found it, it's called 'Moanin' I actually posted it earlier in this thread but this is the Ready Steady Go version, I think that's what confused me. Also found the other track I lost, travelling into make Believe. and a more up to date one at the Ronnie Lane Memorial Concert. Pity Mick Jones from the Clash spoilt it with his out of tune guitar.
  13. I would say the Kurvenmesser is post war, everything else looks period, although I would agree with Fritz about the slide rule.
