Great items every one.
I think mine is this rock.
Looking for the photo albums of Leutnant Emil Freitag, 3. / G.R. 377
Thought I'd hop on this thread. I have a few 'minty' pieces, but this
one with 'a story'.
In 1995 I visited my mother, and saw this on her diningroom table.
She said that the neighbour just had a social tea, and this fellow's
wife said they have this hat but no one in their family wanted it,
and did she know of anyone who might like it. Mom says:
'My son collects all that crap.........'
Turns out the guy had joined the Army with 4 of his pals, but they
weren't getting to see any action fast enough, so they transferred
to the RCAF. WWII ended just before they were about
to be shipped overseas.
This cap was kept in a hatbox in a closet for 50 years. The man
and his family had been right next-door throughout the 70's
when I lived there, and through the 50's and 60's when
my grandparents lived there. I had no idea he had
ever been in the service.........!
