Nice pieces of original gear from the German there. timothy
Lovely stuff !!
You just gotta love that pioneer stuff..... I am addicted to pioneer equipment....
One small remark : that is no mine flag, but it is a flag to map out a gas contaminated area.
Love the drahtschere with carrier, got the same (maker "gut").. what date is yours ??
Also very nice early pioneer saw
btw, strange marking on the lower side of the GGG... is that engraved ??
thanks for your comments
the drahtshere is dated from 1943
the marks on the saw are engraved
thanks for the information about the flag, I always tought it was for the mines
I'll put other items in the week-end
An excellent collection

Very nice equipment there Pegase - love the Belgian finds!!!!!!

My drahtschere carrier is also marked 43
here a picture of a few of my wire cutters
I meant the Gewehr Granat Gerät..... interesting.... so the G.Gr.Ger. is engraved in stead of stamped.... it's a bnz ??
About the flags: it's a mistake that almost all collectors make.... in reality these are called Gasspürfähnchen which means Gas detection flags.....
very nice set I really like these items
the up marks are engraved on the launcher, these are poor quality compare to the bnz marks
the down marks are BNZ
thanks to all for the comments
