    Default German Pistols Ground Dug Items

    Starting to dig out some dug relics l found while in Holland and checking out the drop zones for operation market garden around Arnhem, about three days of looking around, and digging here and there, i had found a nice display of items, these two pistols were found around oosterbeek, and a few other areas, turned up several paratrooper shute buckles, ropes and other things, as far as pistols, these two were the first finds, there were two Webleys, that i do not have any more, and a US Smith and Wesson .30 revolver, l plane on unpacking my things the next week or so and try and make a nice display of finds, from the Arnhem area........

    Must have been fantastic to find these. Right up my alley at least.
    (you SOLD some of them ..... !? Just kidding, selling them is of course your perogative)

    l really cant tell what type pistols they are, one looked German, and to find so many different pistols in that area is amazing, l have another that cleaned very nice and can see some markings on it, l,ll try and post tomorrow, and, yes, l did sell the smith and wesson .38 to a friend who fell in love with it, and the Webleys, l gave to two of my sons.. l kept these and other things, and the other pistol, and also it cleaned up very nice can read the markings and still pull the hammer back on it..Thank You

    Giving them to your sons is entirely different. I applaud that.
    .....well, to a good friend too for that matter

    At first glance I leaned towards the top gun being a Colt 1908 Pocket Pistol, but it doesnt have the same backstrap at all, so Im with JPhillip on this one (Ruby).
