    This device allowed a rifle to be fired from a safe position inside a trench. Imperial in date.

    Now we have an ULTRA RARE item. The Panzerfaust 150m. Few were made late in the war. Very few survive today.

    Thanks Dave, showing these to you all is my pleasure and brings back fond memorires of our trip. We spent the best part of a day in the museum and it was nowhere near long enough. I did not even bother going round the earlier displays, suits of armour, etc. But I took one pic just to give a hint of what was there as I am sure some will find it of interest.

    Also my camera batteries died on me. But we have pleanty of pics to come. But now I must sleep.

    Cheers, Ade.

    PS: found another pic I forgot I have taken. Now added.

    Now a few items all with U Boat connections.

    The leather jacket, which Lez remarked was a good big sized chest for a submariner, was rather nice. It served the owner after the war as his everyday jacket. See the pic of him wearing it in civvies. Collectors always need to bear in mind the post war clothing shortages. Stuff got used!

    The odd looking items are actually apples: these were recovered from a sunked U Boat, if memory serves me correctly, they were from the Seehund mini sub I showed earlier.

    The famous Enigma machine really needs no caption from me. Note this is the special KM four rotor wheel version.
    Amazing stuff Ade!! ... How many enigma machines were there? Regards Larry
