    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Amazing the licence plate is still quite legible,, would be something if it could be traced back to the vehicle. I wonder how the contents of those cans are,, maybe open one.

    I've never seen a BWB in aluminium before, only steel. I notice there is no rear rivet to the helmet either. This might settle a few arguments as to the authenticity of the no-rivet badges?

    Great finds indeed.

    Good spotting Glenn, no rear rivet on the back of the helmet on the BWB, as well as being made from Aluminum. Very cool

    As always fascinating finds, Sebastian.
    The wound badge is in exeptional condition.
    As for your friend being more succesful, I find your aircraft parts plenty interesting!
    Any idea which aircraft?
