    Default Army dump finds

    Hi there, folks!

    Here are some trinkets from the military shop and privately owned army dump (near Novi Sad, Serbia) I visited several weeks ago. There are literally tons of cheap army stuff there (mostly Yugoslav Peoples Army garbage, YPA, or JNA in serbian). I found these Yugoslav Universal Helmets (JUŠ) M59/85 on a large pile several metres high. It was quite a difficult climb, but I managed to find two ones in a good condition Camouflage covers and nets I got for free. Near the helmet hill was a nice “sculpture” made of old m57 rocket launchers (Yugoslav variant of Russian RPG-2). Other stuff include: one practice antitank rifle grenade (in serbian BTKM M68) made of plastic and aluminium (used with M48 Mauser rifle, SKS and AK-47), ammo pouch for M48 rifle, two entrenching tools - old US AMES 1944 (with cyrillic initials M.П) and a brand new one, tri-fold type, still in use by the serbian army. There is also a pickaxe stamped with year 1953 (I can’t figure out the makers’ mark) and another practice round, 30mm caliber, obviously from the m53/59 Praga SPAAG. It’s unfired, and full of gunpowder. The projectile has a broken tip, it’s made of some sort of white plastic with rusted iron parts inside. Any help about this type of ammo is appreciated.

    Cheers!

    nice - wouldn't mind picking one helmet up :-)
    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,

    The last time Dingodog logged on was 2017. Maybe if you send him a PM he will get the notification and respond.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
