We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.

While one must appreciate the work that went into making the lamp, the overall effect is pretty bizarre-pirate art deco-like something the Sea Captain in the 'Simpsons' would have decorating his cabin...
Great lamp Joe
that's a really interesting piece you've got there, certianlly a convo starter.
I agree! just incase you are not aware, its an M3A1 Diapragm Mask
I like the lamp Joe.
Makes for an interesting Conversation piece for your living room.
What wonders we find in the trash that people throw away. I really wonder over the years how much WWII and WWI stuff was lost because people have no clue what they have or the family history that goes with it.
I specialize in M1 carbines and Lugers.
Mmmmm, I frequent a St Vincent's charity shop. And several others besides, mainly for sci-fi books and DVDs. I have picked up the odd item of militaria - well books on military history to be precise. Oh, and recently some Commando comics. Remember them?
And yeah, I'd much rather donate to charity than throw stuff away if it's useable and I no longer need it. And as someone who volunteers for two charities (Cats Protection and Red Cross), it's nice to be able to raise funds from good stuff. On the other hand, some peeps donate rubbish which then has to be taken to the tip.
