    Default My small WWII collection.

    Hello there. I would just like to show you all my (very) small collection of WWII items, mostly German. The display case has my German medals and badges, the two patches are a German Luftwaffe cap patch and a British 8th. Army patch (The Desert Rats). The pistol is a deact S&W Military & Police .38 (late 1941 / early 1942, pre V serial number) in British .38 caliber. The helmet is a M40. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

    Thanks, Nick.

    I have a few Cold War items, plus this small WWII collection. Yes, I would like to add to it. My wish list would be;

    1) Panzerkampfabzeichen - Panzer Badge
    2) Die Nahkampfspange - Close Combat Badge
    3) Heeres Flakabzeichen - Army FLAK Badge
    4) Scharfschutzen Abzeichen - Sniper patch
    5) another German helmet, perhaps
    6) another S&W, this time a 4'' US Military & Police in .38 Special (deact as I live in UK)

    Now, to win the lottery!

    Very nice collection, it will probably grow, with just a bit of luck and money, you will have a great collection.
    Love your S&W, i have one too, it is in .38 Special, Victory model serial. I got it from a friend of mine who got it from a police chief.

    Thanks Vegar.

    Here is a close up of my S&W .38. Unfortunately it is deactivated, but still a nice piece of history.

    Mine is deactivated as well, it is a shame, but all parts can move, and it can be disassembled.
