Achtung Spitfire! posted a topic in De-activated and Antique Guns, Munitions and FuzesAdded this to the collection. I’d describe it as an over engineered box to carry a Tellermine. Lots of great detail which you can see in the photos, manufactures stamp & date, WaA inspection stamp.The fact that the internal paper label has survived is a treat. The ink stamp reads Heer Munition which translates into Army Ammunition. This box is bigger than it looks, about 2 thirds the size of an M24 transport case. Can’t beat a bit of tan paint
Greg posted a topic in Imperial German and other Nations Medals and BadgesAs expected, got a nice Christmas gift from my wife's family, an East German Army Schützenschnur in Silver. The Schützenschnur is nothing new, it went back to Imperial Germany and was awarded for marksmanship. It also is one of the few awards US servicemen may wear, but not officers. To qualify you must use your primary and heavy weapon both and the lowest awarded weapon proficiency marks the award. Silver is the middle award of bronze, silver and gold and there are further awards as acorns for continued proficiency. There are also versions for armour and other branches. There was also a West German version and after reunification it again continued as a German Bundeswehr award.
