  2. Hi guys we have just upgraded the forum with lots of new features, what are your thoughts, any feedback would be appreciated.
  3. Hi Steve, welcome to the forum, no problem to post Zuckermans here, in fact I have just renamed this thread so from now on this thread can be used to post Zuckerman helmets
  4. I'm sure someone will know exactly what it is, sometimes these things just take a little time until the right person comes along
  5. Links to you tube work for me, looks like a good film. Interesting to see how the Russians portrayed the death of Eva Braun showing she was far from willing to die. I remember seeing a similar scene in the 1973 Alec Guinness film "Hitler The last ten days" I wonder if there was any truth in that, I suppose we will never know. I can't find the actual clip on you tube but it was an unusual film in general.
  6. Hello Hador, welcome to the forum, It is an unusual helmet, but I agree with you that it is a civil defence helmet. A military helmet would always have a star to the front. It is unusual to see the four air vent holes which were a feature of the military type 90 helmets. I have never seen a civil defence helmet with these military style vent holes before.
  7. This advert is COMPLETED!

  11. There is no exact way to date them unfortunately. The black leather binding was introduced in 1908 so any with leather binding either black or brown can safely be considered WW1 period, however after WW1 began a faux silk binding was also introduced so these could also be WW1 period, although the faux silk binding is still used today. So if it has a leather binding you can date it, and if it has not you really just have to judge it yourself on wear and tear and age of the badges if present. That's why WW2 glengarrys are difficult to date as they would be very similar to 1950's etc.
  12. Highland Light Infantry Glengarry Rifle green crown and body with black toorie. The Highland Light Infantry did not use a diced band. The HLI and the Cameronians were the only two Scottish Regiments to wear the Rifle green glengarry. They wore a white over red Hackle. The Highland Light Infantry (City of Glasgow Regiment) The Highland Light Infantry (HLI) was a light infantry regiment of the British Army formed in 1881. It took part in the First and Second World Wars, until it was amalgamated with the Royal Scots Fusiliers in 1959 to form the Royal Highland Fusiliers

  16. Seaforth Highlanders Glengarry The Seaforth Highlanders wore a dark blue glengarry with red ,white and black dice with a red toorie.

  17. Thanks Adjudant, welcome to the forum and thank you for the correct information regarding the red hackle. I have now updated the post.
  18. Yes but it is quite time consuming, collectors who specialize purely in iron crosses should be able to identify it quite quickly by it's specific characteristics such as type and height of swastika, type of beading etc. but always easier with a maker mark.
  19. Very nice Ian especially with the original cases.
