One small step for collecting, one giant leap for history preservation.

Article about: Gents, I'd like to share with you my modest display and collection. I've been collecting for about a month. I have a few other pieces at my parent house that I started my collection with whi

    I haven't been very active on this forum for a while but at any rate I am still collecting, albeit at a slower pace. I wanted to share a few up dates!

    I picked up my top shelf DD M35 Heer Police reissue in size 68cm and a tunic removed SS BeVo for my 30th birthday this summer.

    I also grabbed an excellent condition WW1 British Mk.I and a WW2 Canadian Mk.II for my family related service history. I added the helmet netting and 1942 dated field dressing for a little extra swagger.

    Anyway, here are some pics for your enjoyment.

    Here is my first attempt at a mannequin display. The tunic is a captain rank, 1944 dated, battle dress from the Canadian 3rd Anti-Tank Regiment of the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division. I added a un-issued British camouflaged 1942 dated leather jerkin and Canadian / British wartime dated enlisted rifleman's webbing, complete with entrenching tool. I've topped it off with a nice complete Canadian Mk.II with netting and Canadian issued field dressing. Note the tastefully displayed captured authentic Nazi flag tucked into his satchel.

    I know this is a bit of a jumble of gear between EM and CO's gear but for now it will do

    This weekend I am going to organize and adjust the webbing and add some stuffing to get him all squared away.

    Looking for a Canadian issue jerkin, pig sticker (spike bayonet), bandoleer and Canadian period scarf to finish it off.
