    Seems like I am stuck in to the Belgian pre WWI ......
    Don't get me wrong, I am happy as can be. These items are so hard to find, now coming all at once.
    A nice Belgian 4th Lancers outfit, those guy's were involved in slowing the German invasion down at Halen.
    And a very rare Belgian spike helmet for the militia, that needs some restoration.
    cheers
