What a clever idea; individual MG links for resting your smoke in the ashtray.
Nice pieces. I have seen mostly Allied/British/Canadian trench art over the years.........
Nice art! Great designs and ingenuity there.
all the best,
Just shows what you can do if you have enough time, a few tools, and no tv.
Sorry when I'm wrong but in German correct is "Dezember" not "December" and this place in Russia is Gumark, not Gumrak.
Ouch, I bought the Gumrak shell from a digger in Volgagrad he also had a good deal of ID disks and other Items maybe he put the "December" on there! I never paid any attention to the spelling.
My fault! Gumrak is OK. And there were also Romanian troops near Stalingrad. And we all make mistakes. I do not see anything wrong with that ashtray, perhaps it is just not made by a German.
