I have to agree with Morris here. I can just see two disgruntled Australia Post workers smirking at
each other as they shove my stuff into a drawer just to make me sweat for a week or so.....!

As long as it's only into a drawer and not into their backpack!
I'm sure that has happened to me on one occasion too. A beautiful painted Eiserner Halbmond
mysteriously disappears from customs & just drops off the system.
Damn, I hope insurance covered it!
Aus Post has the insurance and investigation ability of the Iraq post off
Morris I know just what you are saying about waiting I have sent items to Lars in Russia one took the better part of two months before he received the parcel.

Cant get my head arround how the post works. Its so different in each country! Garrett sent me a new coil for a metal detector, from Texas US to Europe, so air-mail, trains, post van, and that arrived in two days! Couldn't believe my eyes! Than I bought a silly dash-cam from China, that toke close to two months....
I've got a MOH on the way, so I get how you feel Can't wait for pictures of your helmet and kit when you get it
Looking for militaria from 38. Batterie, Heeres Küsten Artillerie Regiment 977, also from 31, 32 and 36. Batterie.
Here are the pictures; like I said it is a rusty lid. Lokks like a M35 to me, and I can see WH green coming from under what appears to be LW blue. It has seen better days, but it was found like this and has never been in any collection before. Thats why I liked it so much.
The Koppelschloß and tab are Dr Franke & Co 1941, and in a strange color green! Could be the flash? The amo-pouch was found on the belt (only one).
Maybe it was worn by a soldier of a Luftwaffe Felddivision stationed in Belgium? Well all of it is real, thats for sure!
Hope you guys like it as much as I do!
