Hi, I have just found this thread and was interested to see that Klinger was planning to come to Jersey back in 2010. I am sure that if he had visited the Channel Islands Military Museum in St.Ouen he would have been sure to have seen a really interesting museum full of genuine German militaria left over from the dark days of the German Occupation of the Islands. The museum is housed in a 10.5cm casemate/German bunker right on the sea wall [Hitler's Atlantic Wall]. Every room is full of kit and it would take ages to actually see, read and listed to all the museum has to offer. On display is an original 3 rotar Enigma machine, one of two owned by the museum's owner, both being from the Island, You can also see lots of communication equipment, medical items, medals, swords, daggers, optical and field equipment as well as a great selection of machine guns. There are many documents as well as German proclamations, photo's, permits and civilian items from the time. There is also a small selection of original items surplus to the museum requirements which are on sale to collectors.... the money from these go to funding the purchase of such things as soldbuch/wehrpass and photo albums from German soldiers who were stationed in the Channel Islands during the Occupation. If a large group visit then its also possible to have a guided tour around some of the bunkers which can take all day for those who are really interest. If yo wan tto see some pictures of the museum them go to Home
If any of you have any items from the Channel Islands such as soldbuch or wehrpass then contact the museum's owner at email@example.com as he is always looking for such items for the museums archive.
If you make it to Jersey then its well worth visiting the musem.
