    Default German Home Front items

    In Germany every three months we have "Bulk Rubbish Collections".
    People put out their rubbish that will not fit into the normal dustbins.

    Beate and I were on our way home from the shops on Monday and we saw someone having a clear out of old stuff from the 1920s and 1930s Wow!

    We asked if we could take some of the stuff and we were told "Help yourself".

    We took a 1925 childrens pram, three 30s suitcases, baskets and a rare Selmer Clarinet (Paris, 1930)......... here are two pics before we restore the items for our German Home Front display.

    Cheers, Bill.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    They will make great additions to your display. Nice that you saved them from the bin men.
