    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    I applied to adopt him, but they've had a huge response and they think they've found a home for him now.

    May he live out the rest of his days in comfort.

    That's right! Old Blake's heading up the M6 to Shirley in Birmingham with his new guardian Mr.Chang, where he will be 'looked after until his cloud is called'......(which is pencilled in for tommorow's grand re opening of his owner's business....)
