    Well, not the fact that foreign equipment was used puzzles me, but the variety of spades....

    Here a few of mine

    from what I now now:

    left to right

    1 - Pre war polish spade (with post war cover i was informed)

    2 - I was told this was a pre war polish, but I don't know anymore

    3 & 4 austrian / czech spades

    Well worth tracking it down Tim.

    I have quite a few of the Osprey series of books "on the shelf" and can thoroughly recommend them, whether as basic reference books or, if you make models like I do, great books for ideas for figures and vehicles.

    Regards etc

    Hi Timothy, of course it's your money, but don't waste your money on repro's...... better save up for a year (or 2) and buy an original !!

    Unless you are going to re-enact, then don't use originals !!

    Hello,
    To Tom and other members interested in fieldgear, another set up from Osprey 234, but with the right shovel cover, not the postwar french canvas example seen in the book...(sometimes offered as the ultra rare DAK locally made canvas cover with german canvas, italian straps and british buckles or vice versa)...Sorry for the poor lighting and unpainted shovel (the shovel is tan painted in the book).
    Dont forget to click on the photo...
    Thanks
