    Very interesting. I've seen Luftwaffe imprinted plates and cups and of course silverware before, never a tooth brush.

    I checked out your web site; very impressive collection; you've been collecting for some time I assume?
    Thank you, i have been collecting for about a year and half, i started with an Hinderburg Cross.

    A year and a half?? That makes your collection more impressive yet.

    I started collecting over twenty years ago when my Father-In-Law gave me that Fliegerbluse I posted above; he brought it home from France as a war suvenier.
    The strange thing is that I started collecting WW II US, not German items. Years later begam collecting Brit and Canadian with some German & Luftwaffe pieces, finally moving to WW II RCAF where my main interest is today.
