    A normal assortment of finds from a couple of weeks ago, at the stalls of a large Steam Fair, most unusual though is the Japanese artillery sight and mount, and a MG34/42 ammo can.

    This weekends items, from a farm jumble and a autojumble/collectors sale, WW1 German MG08 ammo box (seller claimed it was for storing bus conductors ticket machines, it was full of 1950's tools and he wanted to sell the lot complete, but we managed to come to an agreement for £8.00 and he kept the tools). Others items were a 1941 Air Ministry chisel set, 1914 French ball grenade, 1944 US Aladdin stove, and a good SRD jar with it's wire handle.

    Not much today, but an interesting box, I think to a Polish Lieutenant, I'm guessing pre WW2, came from a house clearance no other details unfortunately. The last picture shows the top after a gentle wipe with a wet cloth. The helmet is a British para version.

    The box is of WWII origin. The owner was lieutenant Tadeusz Gryglaszewski serving under the Polish Armed Forces command (on the West - UK, France, Mediterranean area). Boxes like this were supposed to contain officers personal belongings and were especially useful after releasing from the army. Internet sources provide some info relating to Lt T.Gryglaszewski. One says that Lt Gryglaszewski was commander of the 2nd platoon in 3rd company of the 2nd "Karpaty" Border Protection Corps regiment in September 1939. Other provides info that Tadeusz Gryglaszewski stood in England after war. No wartime (1940-45) record is available in the internet, however if you are curious of his detachment and service you can contract Sikorski's Institute in London (PISM Home Page).
