    This is a WWI Austro-Hungarian Canteen that was reissued to the Czech Army in the 1920s...I found this in the garbage in Germany when I was about 10 years old...amazing that I still have it after all these years...

    Default Mauser M. 1914 Pistol

    This is my Mauser M.1914 pistol. A family member captured it during World War 2. The holster is dated 1917 which, I assume, is the same date the pistol was made because of the matching serial numbers.

    I have a WW1 'push dagger' made by Robbins. I should do a separate thread on it, supposedly a rare thing?

    Got it from my grandfather who's father brought it back from the first war. I don't know much about them but believe they were private purchase?
    ( I don't know how GGF acquired it as he was a stretcher bearer in the RAMC )

    Default Oldest item/M16

    Hi folks, Posted this M16 helmet in another place but it fits this thread. I bought this from my father's friend Dick who was a mail man. On the side, he sold militaria. He was really good at finding items. When he came over to the house I remember he would open the trunk and show me some treasures. This was one of them. It was purchased December 1976 along with a matching named gas mask for Grenadier Brunnlieb.

    This is non military but very precious to me. It is a collection of periodical magazines from the first quarter of the nineteenth century and was compiled into one book by my Great Great Grandfather. Starts Feb 1st 1817.
