    It is interesting that the panzer guy has converted an army wrapper by adding SS runes cut from a tab to army collar tabs.
    If I was offered this today I would swear that the SS runes were a clumsy attempt at fakery. Or as old Craig Gottlieb would say "oy vey" "What scheisse" Just kidding.
    Great photos. I would love to peruse through the archive that F.B. points out. Unfortunately my knowledge of written European languages is sadly lacking.
    A basket full of university degrees and I am still dumb as a stump.

    The more all of you get used to using this kind of thing, the better we all will be and we will all learn more.

    I am always gladdened by Ben's curiosity and energy from which we all profit.
