    Default A mix of military mementos ......

    Well its a sweltering 42 deg day here in the Sydney area ( that's 107F to some! ) and I'm inside trying!! to keep cool - although the aircon is struggling to assist me. So, sitting at my study desk I thought I'd snap a couple of quick shots of the mixed bag of "stuff" I've collected over the years that stares at me ( or I stare at it ) whenever I sit down and fire up this computer.

    Anything you want me to elaborate on I will but its a little bit of everything and much has already been shown in some of my earlier threads. I've tried to stick to a theme before but seriously, ALL TR stuff intrigues me and I cant help myself.....

    Cheers all,
    Dan

    Oh, the "checkerplate" background is a cheat ........ it's stick-on vinyl ( but effective! )

    Hey Dan! It will be 47 degrees F in MN on Sunday. Nice stuff you have there. Thank you for showing us. Love how you have displayed. TR stuff for me as well.

    What is the bigger RED Can? Is that a donation can and for what purpose or cause was it for? Have seen one once before.

    Hi - just nipped out as the beer had run out .... 47F is about our average Winter lows - sometimes we get to zeroC but not often ( doesn't snow here either )

    The donation cans are WHW collection cans - 2 different sizes still with labels ( which is rare )

    Thanks for the comments!

    We are having the warmest fall ever, temperature didn 't go under the 10C, yet! Over day that is.
    Love the collection, Dan!
    I still have some of my dug up stuff, and it might take a long time to upgrade them.
    cheers

    Did I get the panzer assault from you Kris? .... or was it member Frundsberg???

    Anyway, for me I like the dug stuff as much as the minty items....

    Nice stuff. Lots of items there I would love to have on my shelf. Really like the Red Cross stick pin.

    I have no salty relic badges in my collection but after staring at your pictures for hours I want me some relics. Heading to Kurland to dig now. Is it warmer than MN? I doubt it? Maybe I can come to see you Aussies and you can bury some for me to find?

    Relics are 1/3 or less the cost of normal badges and have ( for me ) a certain charm to them.Sadly these all came to me from sellers or diggers in Europe. I would love to find even ONE by myself but one has to happy with what one can get when so far away .....

    Cheers, Dan
