    Default My Militaria Show Finds. Opinions?

    I picked these up at a militaria show being held locally.

    I was just hoping you fine fellows could tell me your thoughts on these items and whether or not they're all original!

    THANKS IN ADVANCE!

    This was advertised as a Japanese rifle flag. Another dealer told me it is a flag civilian well-wishers would wave as their boys were being sent away to war.


    The flag has a bakelite-like telescopic pole.


    I thought this was a very clean looking example of a mother's cross. I love the patina. The dealer I bought this from offered me a gold variant at the same price, but it looked like a truck has run it over.




    Black wound badge:




    European/ African/ Middle Eastern campaign medal w/ two battle stars and matching ribbon bar.


    I got a ribbon bar for my Good Conduct medal for free!


    So what do you guys think?!

    Thanks! I find the whole premise behind the MK fascinating! I think my students will get a kick out of the fact that medals were given out to encourage women to produce more fodder for Hiter!

    I really like the flag too! Cool little item.

    Believe your flag is indeed a 'well wisher' flag.

    I like them all, especially the wound badge.........!
