    Neat collection.

    That unknown bag looks appropriate for maps and charts. The bag has gussets around the bottom like some styles of briefcases. The two cylindrical leather pockets would be for pens or pencils. Doesn't look German. Soviet, I would guess, based on what you say about troop movements in the area.

    Hey everyone!

    I just came back on Sunday from a two week trip to Poland with my dad.

    We visited plenty of places around the country (more details to come), but I was more preoccupied with hunting.

    Pickings were slim. I only had the chance to visit two antique shops in Tarnow, but I had more luck in the countryside.

    Here are some pics...

    ...with more details to follow

    Earlier in this thread I mentioned that my father bought two mess kits from my great uncle's neighbor.

    Well, this is the second mess kit!

    It may be rusty, but it's in a lot better condition than the other mess kit.

    Its a Silesia 1927 VK01? model.

    German VIII 1938 shell casing. Purchased for 10 zloty at an antique shop in Tarnow (one of two items purchased).

    This was the other item purchased at the shop. I found this in a card board box of photos.

    I'm assuming this is a pre war sailor.

    I thought the composition was beautiful (his kid brother too excited to stay still)!

    Bought it for 5 zloty.

    I started another thread before I left for Poland asking if I should bring any militaria to sell in Poland.

    A number of forum members mentioned about the vast number of fakes and repros there... There were!

    At the same shop there was a 'legion' bayonet for 600 zloty and a questionable cartridge bag with either a Imperial Russian or Austrian eagle for 300 zloty.

    I tried looking for some authentic modern Polish camo uniforms, but only found Chinese knock offs at a mall in Tarnow.

    Thankfully I made a contact at the Polish Air Force Academy in Deblin. He said he won't forget about me!

    I purchased this at a small stamp shop in the city for 1.50 zloty.

    I have a small postage collection on the side.

    Speaking of Tarnow, here is a photo of me standing in front of the remains of a synagogue burnt down during the war.

    The ruins are located in the old town.

    The old clock tower. There's a museum inside and they house a great collection of antique Turkish arms and armor!

    I recommend this museum if you're in the area.
