    A friend of mine bought one of these in Holland many years ago. However, he did not know that the sack had been used in post war Amsterdam. Coming back through Customs the drugs sniffer dog went crazy over this sack. So my friend was subjected to a strip search complete with rubber gloved fingers going you know where.. But he got to keep the sack.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Phil, Beltring was good. Weather was warm and sunny and everything was covered in the infamous Beltring dust!

    Just posting a few of my little finds, see Soviet and firearms forums. Nothing expensive, but I was happy.

    Cheers, Ade.
