  1. English keyboard....Oh yes even that would be a more excellent choice..... when compared to operating a wee mobile phone device that allow's texting, but due to the clown's that came up with the automated spellcheck computer program with the interference of unauthorised authoring of what is written and there editing and being uneducated in English spelling....it would be a great marvel to modern man !......As the German linguistic's is'nt the first real big issue, as l am more likely to make untold spelling mistakes in their language, but l am able to read little and speak enough German to con
  2. Dolt !......l accept my error in poor spelling on the Holsten Brau, And yes Fritz that is the Beer l was talking about l thought was Holstein my boo boo !.... as we here in Australia do not have German Beer on tap and only get the opportunity to drink German imported Beer's at a high price then domestic.....l was not able to be a regular drinker of a excellent Brau.....But as for the misspelling of the word Fusiliers....that one you'll have to take up with the automated spellcheck computer program product, as l had actually spelt it correctly with a single letter "s", but the program designer
  3. Nice collection littlebuddy, l myself have collected a few Luftwaffen Aviator's flying gear and cap's, l am impressed with your USAAF goodie's, especially your parachute to which l believe are difficult to find.....a few of my toy's
  4. Excellent feed back Fritz.... very interesting read about the Holstein Rgt's history .....oh it would seem that my memory is getting soft with old age !.....So not 76th Hannover Fusslier's, but 73rd !.....l read about the 73rd Fusslier's along time ago, long enough to have made the historical boo boo of the regimental number ! And frankly the only thing's l remember about Holstein is that it was once under Danish rule and the other is that there was a Brau called Holstein that had a knight on horseback logo .. obviously not much help on topic !
  5. A very interesting group of documents there Fritz of Herr Kurt Schneider, isn't Holstein in the North West of Germany near Danmark ?, Also if l am not mistaken l think the 76 Regiment was the Hannoverian Fusslier's that took part in the final German large offensive in March 1918....And l am also of the belief that the you are correct that the Lichterfelde Barrack's in Berlin was an Officer's training academy closed just after WW1... But if l recall correctly was re-opened temporarily in the 1930's again as an Army officer's academy for the son's of the wealthy fortunate of German society....un
  6. I once owned a replica P-08 , and now only some P-08 part's....as for that holster...l would also go with replica, but easy enough to make look like an original with leather stain's and sandpaper !, But l personally prefure to keep all my replica stuff in mint condition and let time and use age them ! As for the P-08 Luger Artillery model, you would have to rest it onto your elbow just to get that none accurate shot !, Just like that Kreigsmarine model..... "Gone Fishing"
  7. Normal logic would dictate that if it wasn't enirt they would through it at you ! & If it didn't go BANG they would just throw another..... otherwise they would have scrapped them all post W.W.1, So if collector's are still finding German grenade's from the first war, then they must have worked okay to use in the second war
