    (the design of the post cold-war (after 1990) badges are based on Hungarian WW2 air force badges - see this original WW2 photo of Hungarian pilots - also part of my collection - all the pilots signed it on the reverse)

    Assorted Hungarian field-gear straps - most, but not all - have ink-stamp markings - some could be left-over stock from WW2.
    Marking are usually have early 1950s date...

    Assorted Hungarian arm-bands from 1945 - 1970s:

    second left: medical with 1950s medical badge attached (with 1956 November revolution date stamped - can't confirm the originality of it (50/50)

    Thanks. I usually go for good or new condition stuff... Or if I find a better condition one, I sell the old one. (like I did not long ago with some M50 gasmasks and a 57M police hat.)
    I'll post soon those...
    Also the Hungarian canteen collection (2 x WW2 - 5 x M50 - 6 x M70 canteens)

    Oh yeah, James...
    I just won this lot of canteens (yet to arrive) - again for a ridiculous price - about 8 Euroes...The secret: I usually don't buy from military dealers, mostly from people who sell a lot of assorted junk, and have no clue what they are selling

    Anyway, the unpainted alu one is a Hungarian M50, but the other 3 are not Hungarian (or I don't think they are). I have no clue which country - maybe French?

    When I get them, I look for markings...
