    Default SS Dienstdolch ''from my uncle''

    2 days ago i posted the thread about the SS dagger with ''Himmler Widmung'' I really have no knowledge about this sort of 'stuff''.
    But today my uncle vissit my place and i now he possessed an SS dagger and asked him to bring it to me to share with
    you guys.
    This one is real for sure!His father had an cafe in the town of Rimburg south-Netherlands.In 1944 waffen SS men where on there way
    to Belgium(battle of the bulge)and they had an stop/pauze in Rimburg, some of them slept in the cafe of my uncle's father.
    The next day they moved out and go on their way.One of them forgot his dagger and an Kriegsverdienstkreuz mit schwerten(also with
    the pics).
    Hope you enjoy the pictures!One of the pics is with the M40 Wehrmacht helmet that i bought from Maris the ''Ostlanddigger''.Click image for larger version.

    The dagger looks great..with looks to be a possible period fix or a recent fix with a period link connector closest to the center ramp of the scabbard. The Link opening is facing forward and should be facing towards the rear...not a problem IMO..but just an observation. Other opinions welcome.

    The helmets would be best also to be shared in the helmet forum. Regards Larry

    I Like it. A decent and honest chained SS straight out of the woodwork and unseen before. It looks to be in fine shape and not taken apart,cleaned or abused much-if at all.

    I have to wonder, though, just how well that went over with the guy who forgot to bring it with him? I can just see the guys with him :"Uhh..Hans....Vehr ist your Dagger?? You lost it Again, Dumkopf?!"

    Wouldn't your "uncle's father" be your grandfather?

    A father's uncle would be your great uncle. Only your father's Father would be your grandfather.

    He doesn't write "my father's uncle".
    He writes "my uncle's father".

    To me, an uncle is the brother of my father (or mother).

    And that is why I asked.
