    This arrived in the post today and i'd like to say a big thank you to Harryamb2 who kindly sent it to me, it's battered and been burnt and missing it's suspension ring lug but i'm really pleased with it.
    Harry bought a number of these from a guy who dug them from the site of the Reichs chancellery, i know we always say buy the item and not the story but with the amount of these that were scattered around the site i'll go with it. Thank you again Harry!....Click image for larger version.

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    That's an interesting item, and a great picture too! I wonder what has happened to that bronze plaque in the background.

    Such an IRONIC photo ..... "faithful service" ( I wonder if the Russians knew what it was for? ..... they are smiling so maybe they get the joke )

    Is the soldier on the right carrying a PPD-40? Really peculiar to be having that, at such late part of the war.

    Good eye it is a PPD, yes a bit unusual in 1945!...

    Thanks for posting Gunny and also for adding the always fascinating photo of the Reichs Chancellery steps.
    It never fails to amuse me that these trinkets we all seek and pay a lot of money now for were once regarded as throw away items and they were treated with disdain.

    Kudos to you Harry and your generosity!
