Yes,it must have been something similar. I spoke to a jeweller mate of me and he ll make an attempt to reconstruct it for me
Great work Inka,, love those party badges, and the hat has kept well over the years,,,of all the things you have uncovered over the which as suprised you the most,, like took your breath when you found it.
Good question mate. After a think I think it is the time I found that winter hat in the fallen shed,,I didnt expect to find anything else than rotten planks.. ---> Searching the Depot - Hobbyhistorica
Or possibly the six meter long ditch filled with signal flares --> A Fistful of Flares - Hobbyhistorica
The hat is a great addition bud,, i suppose the buzz when you stumble across something is always the same and the outcome can differ,, not much to search for here in the UK bud thank god (they never really made it over here), but fingers crossed mother nature will push some beauties to the surface for you this year,,,oh ps i got the Garand receiver,,, idont suppose the US made it as far as your neck of the woods.
We didn`t have U.S troops here no,but the Brits seems to have supplied the resistance with some U.S equipment and weapons.
Actually, we did have some US troops in country in 1945, Operation Rype for example. There were also quite a few units here to overlook the surrender. A lot of US weapons an equipment was dropped to the resistance, the M1(A1) Carbine was widely used
Looking for militaria from 38. Batterie, Heeres Küsten Artillerie Regiment 977, also from 31, 32 and 36. Batterie.
