The batch for this month
A modified M1 shell, a cigar case, a diary, many military manuals, and some photos
I don't know if this for the KNIL at that time. But the cover of KNIL soldiers marching make this cigar case really unique
Some entry of it was made during Japanese occupation era. The very interesting entry is:
2605 (japanese year for 1945)
1/5 Hitler pemimpin Djermania mati sebagai pahlawan dimedan perang (Hitler the leader of Germania died as hero in the battlefield).
I think the Japanese military in here used the german radio news regarding hitler dead at that time.
Sten gun by TNI made in 1951
Mortar by TNI made in 1951
Firepower by TNI made in 1952
Small Unit Tactic book
I guess this is copied by TNI from US manual.
As you can see. AA gun US manual
US arty manual
KNIL infantry manual
Dateless though. But i think it's made in 19th century, i guess during Victorian era. This pocket book deals with marching in soldier school, company school, and battalion school. And its for the Javanese soldier who still barefoot at that time. One of it's instruction deals about how to put the correct toe position during attention.
KNIL javanese 2nd lieutenant. Dated 1912-1942
TNI 2nd lieutenant. I think from the 1950's.
Teaser about the shell
I guess i'll make this thread immediately
