    Post parachute - fallschirmjager

    Hello, I am new to this site.
    I have a German parachute that I have been carrying around for many years. During WW 2 my grandmothers' sister had it shipped to her by a friend in the army when she heard that parachutes were made of silk. Because of war time rationing, women's "dainty things" were deteriorating and unable to be replaced. She was sorely disappointed when she received it and it was camouflaged. Even though she was the "wild" sister she didn't pursue making undergarments from the chute. It stayed in my grandmothers basement until she passed on. I found it there when we were cleaning the house out.
    Any input would be appreciated. Particulary as to value. All I have done with it is store it. Would be nice to get it to someone who would appreciate it more.
    The lines are cut off the canopy. There are several holes in the canopy but no tears. The metal box has some rust on the outside and three of the clamps are incomplete.

    Gents , very nice parachutes and fixings but perhaps any dealing re sales ought to be conducted via PM and not on the open forum otherwise a bidding war ensues

    A good point but in this case, no worries Dave: an old thread brought back and inactive users.

    Cheers, Ade.
