    Here is one insignificant item from my collection that I would like to share. It is a simple bread knife, brought to Canada when she traveled by ship to get here. It comes from the tank factory that she worked in during the war.

    I could never part with 2 small German coins my father brought back from ww2... He served in France, Belgium and Germany.
    On a side note ... he was wounded 3 different times... the third time was near wars end... all his Souvenir's were robbed from him during surgery..... he still managed to bring home 2 lugers and some other items... the coins were among them.

    The most prized piece, in both my sons and my opinion, which we will never part with, is this old pieced together shaving kit that was my grandfathers during his time in the Burma Prison Camps. He was in the Royal Dutch Army (KNIL) at the time the Japanese occupation if Indonesia and you all know the rest of that story. His name and prisoner number is etched in the back of the case.
