    The first one is a mortar that I am not sure of the origin, second appears to be mp40 magazines (German) and 3rd seem to be stg44 magazines also German. The goggles look like German also the rest am not to sure maybe leather German equipment strap? -Ben

    The sling is not for a BAR. It appears German?

    Nor are the curved mags from an MP44/Stg44. Too large and too short.

    The other mags are MP40, far left, the others could be MP40 or even from a Sten gun, hard to say as some are so rusted, the last one on the far right is certainly from a Thompson.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Certainly not a BAR sling. Agree with Ade, looks German to me.

    Mags are not MP38/40. But are M3 Grease gun mags and a 30 round Thompson mag.

    Pretty sure those are Bren mags (the curved ones). If you have a Brit .303, put it next to it for size comparison.

    Looks like a US 60mm mortar

    This has already been mentioned before, but this is what I see:
    Top: Looks to be an American 60mm mortar shell(Are you sure that one is safe?)
    Second: The far left looks to be an Mp-40/Mp-38 magazine(Looks like 2 grooves in the magazine), the two in the middle are possibly Stengun magazines and the one to the far right is a 30 round Thompson magazine.
    Third: These are most likely 30 Round Brengun magazines.
    Fourth: Some pieces of German field cutlery
    Fifth: Not a B.A.R sling, it looks to big to be any kind of weapon sling, judging by the color and shape of the metal part of it, I would also say it leads me to say that it is German.
    Sixth and seventh: German ammunition crate, not sure what kind though. It says "Heeres munition" on the back, doesn't it?
    Eight: I could not see this picture on the forums, but I saw it in your Imageshack list. They are also German.

    And lastly, here is a guide on how to upload images to the website, which I think could be helpful:

    The only thing that comes close to the mortar shell is a CCF(Chinese Communist Forces) 82mm Mortar round or a Model 100, 81mm japanese mortar shell.
    For the submachine gun mags, the first one from the left is a MP40/38 mag (German), the second I'll have to say Sten submachine gun (Brittish), the third is as Mouse stated a .45Cal 30round M3 grease gun mag (US) and the last one is a thompson mag(US).
    The curved mags don't look like any bren mags I know or have seen, the first 3 from the left have 3 small peepholes down the center.(they do look familiar)
    The fork in picture 3(second from the left)I supose german, found the same type as that one in a german foxhole with another few german items.
    I'm sorry, I can't help you with the rest of the items.
    If you could do so next time put something with fixed dimensions next to the object in question,
    it would make our job easyer.
    Regards,
    Steven
