    Default Militaria fairs.....it's there if you look !

    Hi

    Just back from three days at a large military vehicle rally/trade fair that is conveniently only 15 miles from my house.

    As with all things there never seems much to buy at first glance and what there is was over priced and blah, blah blah...

    Kept seeing people I knew who said nothing here mate, no rich pickings, no nothing.........................

    Any way I hung in there and reckon I put the miles in going from stall to stall with the cry of "anything Reichswehr ? ".....and after approx 18 odd hours of pure shopping time...................

    How did I do ?

    Got myself a RW unit marked universal field cap, a nice Imperial reservists cap (minty), cracking untouched M17 stalhelm with liner intact (no chin strap unsuprisingly), photo album for RW arty unit (transitional pics) loads of nice card pics pre ww1 and ww1, a few nice RW pictures, chinstrap X2
    and still had change for a burger (which was nearly as expensive as the hats !).

    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

    I envy you guys with these fairs/flea markets. Sometimes you can find gold for coins.

    Annnnnnnd you want to sell the M17, right?

    Great items. Sometimes it pays to ask specifically invade people are hiding things.

    Thanks Tony! They are difficult to find with that paint, which does make them desirable. Camo helmets are rather easy to come by, as you said.

    Any shots of the inside of the helmet?
