    Hi Kurtis, welcome to the forum!

    First off, all items are original.

    It is always easiest to feature just one or two items at a time at it makes thing easier to explain

    You have a mixture of German and British items which leads one to think these were the souvenirs of a British soldier.

    You are correct it is indeed a KM dagger and hangers.

    The rest of the German insignia is all Naval too:

    Large sports vest eagle
    Coastal Artillery shoulder strap for a private.
    Narvik sheild award for taking part in the 1940 battle.
    KM breast eagles
    Female KM auxiliaries cuff band
    KM Officers shoulder strap

    Wehrmacht Merkbuch (appointment book)

    British medals: War Medal, Defence Medal, France & Germany Star, 1939-45 Star.
    British Troops in France formation signs (Red sheild with blue cross)


    Cheers, Ade.

    I agree with Ade's observations "as per" (as he himself often says) However, he missed one:

    British Army formation signs of Orkney and Shetland Defences, worn by the garrison up there, including coastal and AA artillery.
