    Seeing a personnel collection of the Vet that brought it back. Can't Beat That!!!!! Did you get a chance to listen to his stories about how he acquired those items.

    He collected them over time by trading back and forth with other soldiers. None of the items in this display were removed from an enemy soldier or casualty. However, some field equipment including belt and buckle not on display were personally removed from a Heer soldier and into his hands during Operation Varsity. I did not get to see them. They had a brief occupation period after the war where he acquired the items in the case. NH
