    A book from 1930 entitled "songs that won the war". Certain songs that may not be appropriate to sing in church are not included unfortunately.

    This interesting English-German dictionary dated June 1945. I originally thought this was civilian until i noticed it has quite a lot of military terms in it. Any ideas?

    A nice clean example of a Sam Browne belt. Does anyone know a way of dating them?

    And last, but certainly not least, (now i know what it is thanks to fellow forum members), a Ostvolk Medaille (which was being sold as a piece of costume jewelry). I have uploaded more detailed images of this is the appropriate (i think) category.

    Its great, it has a whole section on military phrases. Would these have been given to soldiers or would they have been private purchases?
