    Hi Guys

    Yesterday we visited T°jhusmuseet in Denmark (The Royal Danish Arsenal Museum) which for the time features an exhibit about Denmark at war through out the times - including a Collection of German uniforms being warn by Danes participating in the second World War on the German side.

    Sorry for the low quality of my Pictures - but I thought you Guys still would like to see some of the uniforms

    Hi guys, I went there yesterday.

    I can add to the photos already posted that the SS-ObersturmbannfŘhrer uniform belonged to Poul Rantzau-Engelhardt (he was the second highest Dane in the SS, he ended his career as StandartenfŘhrer). The steelhelmet also belonged to him, here are some photos, sorry for the poor quality.

    Next to Rantzau-Engelhardt's uniform its possible to see the uniform of Generaloberst Georg Lindemann who was Wehrmachtsbefehlshaber in Denmark at the end of the war.

    On my way there I also did notice a Swastika on the fence that surrounds Carlsberg Glyptoteket (art museum) just in front of Tivoli, it dates back to the time before 1933 its was part of the official logo of the Carlsberg Breweries.

    Amazing. I'm happy to see Denmark is not afraid of history. It seems Carlsberg must have quickly changed its logo after WWII by the way!

    They changed it already in 1933 when Hitler came to power. But it can still be found on the buildings belonging to the old factory, and as well on old beer bottles and crates.

    Ahem..., it pains me to talk about the T°jhusmuseum. The museum for many decades housed a vast and extensive Collection of weapons. One of the finest arms Collections in Europe and maybe even the World. For moronic PC reasons (amongst other concerns, a director stated, that those visiting the Collection were not of the kind, that the museum wanted to attract), this huge display of guns have recently been cancelled.
    Some items/firearms even destroyed.
    I pity those who were not able to experience the Collection in its full glory. It will never return in its previous incarnation and those interested in small arms of the projectile firing kind and the history of same, have lost an important visual research tool and have lost the opportunity to stroll amongst a cornucopia of small arms.

    The T°jhus Museum firearms Collection R.I.P.
