If you could go back to summer 1945...

Article about: I'd head straight down the steps into the fuhrerbunker and take the pistol that ended hitlers life 20 years too late. That's, of course, after the bastard had used it!

    ... where would you go to pick up one relic and what would you pick?

    I love seeing immediate post war photos, piles of discarded helmets, lines of abandoned aircraft, but have wondered if I had of been there, or could time travel, exactly what and where would I actually go and I still haven't yet reached a conclusion, although buying a scrap Spitfire or Hurricane for the price of the fuel in the tanks kind of appeals!!

    Anyone else?

    Cheers

    Well assuming its only one item that you can carry, which counts out a flak 88 gun lol, I will keep it simple and say a really nice unit marked banner or flag, which is something that I do not have in my collection, or a complete uniform with medals and such, this is assuming anything of great value has already been looted lol

    The world globe in Hitler's office in the Reich Chancellory - the only world he got to conquer!

    One of Hitlers war time grey uniforms and visor cap or Himmlers white summer tunic.

    Simply a working Mauser 98k, such a great rifle.

    Funny how at the time all the German helmets and gear were just not worth money because they were so mass produced and now people pay hundreds for it.

    Some good replies. I think a wander round Berlin would be the place, as to what I would choose... I still haven't got the foggiest...
