    Sunday 2nd September, went away for the weekend to Bognor Regis (Butlins), found the local carboot and popped down, not much there except 5x wartime issues of the Guernsey Evening Press, they are dated for 1943/44, and give an interesting insight into German occupation of the Island. Seller claimed he found them inside an old piano !

    Wow, that sign is awesome I love things like that.

    The formation is the 56th (London) Armoured Division (TA), featuring the badge used from 1950 onwards.

    September 30th, finds were a "44 Pattern" water bottle and cup, 1940 dated P59 steel box, 1942 WD large oil can, small 1938 Air Ministry grease gun, and some interesting books, the small one titled "SPY" being a novel, dated 1944 but with the words "Cheap War Edition on Thin Paper" on the dust jacket, a nice home front item.

    Nice pick-ups, as usual, Gary.

    The 44ptn waterbottle and mug look to be in great condition and, unless I am mistaken, are early ones, identified by the metal cap on the bottle.
    I carried one of these for years, as did my brother. (Lot better than the 58ptn plastic ones) My son still uses the mug, (he's currently in the army). Unfortunately I loaned my w/bottle out and never got it back, still got the carrier though!

    Hi Ian,
    the cup is dated 1965 and marked PATT44, I've been collecting a long time (40 odd years) and this is the first I've found at a carboot, I probably would have missed it but recently on the Historic Military Vehicle Forum, these was talk about them, and this one caught my eye in a pile of 1970's vintage camping gear, the chap wanted 3 for it and I thought this was a bargain. The bottle is unmarked and I believe this is normal.
    Regards
    Gary

    Hi Gary,

    You got an excellent bargain there mate, genuine ones go for double figures, and that's as separate items!
    All you need now is a good, complete, 44ptn carrier for it, (complete as in still got the hanger clip - they are frequently removed so that can hang lower on a web-belt), "Millbank Waterpurifier bag" and the appropriate water-purifier tablets tube and you've got the complete set.

    Regards etc

    6/7 October, finds this weekend were, ATS holdall (poor condition, it was full of tools, but I tipped these out into to a box at the boot sale), SOE issue wire cutters, WW1 carpenters plane, unknown item that appears to be a grease gun (with its canvas cover), and most interesting of all some maps that were from the estate of Lt Col Norman Crawley, 6th Airborne (see below for his details).

    The maps show Palestine/Tel Aviv, for Operation Shark.

    Gary, just found this thread. Some great finds. The tan cylinder you described as a grease gun in the last post is, I believe, for testing for gases. You put detector paper inside and suck the air into it to see if there is gas in the air.

    Thanks
