    I always cringe, looking at these Liberators! They look like they'd blow up and take your hand off, if you fired them! I wonder how many were actually Used and fired?

    Nice display depicting 1945, the armband was shown here.

    Hi William, I always wonder that too!

    Cheers, Ade.

    I love the bullet riddled street sign, that would make a fantastic backdrop to a display!

    Hi Guys, here is tonights installment.

    I promised you some ordnance rarities and here is the first one.

    The ultra rare Fliegerfaust. A hand held anti aircraft weapon. Despite a large order, very few were made and only a few got used in action in 1945. These were an attempt to build upon the sucess of the Panzerfaust and relate the concept to an anti aircraft weapons system.

    This is the so called "B" model.

    The museum had yet to caption this item and I suspect many people would not even know what it was!

    Cheres, Ade.

    Here is the Fliegerfaust Model "A".

    I really cannot stress on how rare these items are....

    This one was discovered at the former Ordnance testing range at Wunsdorf.
