Article about: Hi guys, forgive me if this is already mentioned elsewhere but, if not? I was wondering what your newest militaria purchase was. Mine include a nice General Assault Badge, another War Merit

    My latest is a Second World War British Invalids Anti Gas Helmet (Helmet Respirator) It was a bargain for such a rare mask and hopefully it will bring more attention to my display

    Hi Chris, you are correct on the doc. A useful peice for the researcher.

    Cheers, Ade.
    Cheers Ade, thank you for confirming it for me. The Document apparently is from the Regimental Commander himself-I guess? Anyway, at least it says it on the stationary ;-)) Im about to start trying to research the names mentioned. I didn't read enough of it to see if it were for awards or not? but im going to start with various awards refenence books I have and maybe come up with something special. ;-D

    Thanks again Ade-you have been a big help to me.

    Nice helmet Frenchy.

    My latest are a grouping of five photos that were part of Hauptmann Karl Glatzners personal collection. I had hoped for mor ebut guess I was lucky to get these. Anyway, one pic he took of a KOed T-34 which is in some trees. Another pic shows him pre-RKT days-wearing his Waffenrock, two pics show the higher-ranking officers of Infantry Regiment 426-of the 126th Inf Div. Im not sure of Glatzner is in them or not? And finally, I barely managed to get one pic showing him and I.Rs Kdt adn RKT Alfred Hemmann. Hemmann commanded I.R. 426-and Glatzner commanded tht Regiments 1st Battalion. I also tried to get some Wienke pics-but lost out on all of them-dang it. Anyway-Wienke was a Haupmann and Fuhrer in that regiments 2nd Btn. Wienke was later killed in action I think near Rostov or Kharkov? As for Hemmann, he was an Oberstleutnant.

    Heres my latest, a nice battlefield made ring by a Finnish soldier involved with the German Nord troops in Lappland in 1941. The metal is from a downed airplane
