    My Bavarian items.

    What a incredible knowledge and expertise this forum has(y)! Bought this cap in '80 as a Jäger Mütze. I only got the book one year later and was finally confused. But as the wellknown ratrace just started, the issue remained on hold and time would tell...:) @ Lars: thank you so much for the...

    My Bavarian items.

    Original 'Reichskokarde' of the right helmet was missing and replaced by an ordinary rosette. At that time, a Jäger Shako was out of reach to me, but got the Jäger Mütze (as it was) by chance. Could someone complete the marking inside (1st J.Btn?) Thanks+bregards, Marty

    Hello from Brugge (Bruges) Belgium.

    Hi Steve, a small world? Sure it is! More surprising is your link with Zeebrugge. I'm really anxious to know the story of yr captain grandfather and the Flanders Flotilla (if it's ok for you, by pm or e-mail,tx). The WW1 history of Zeebrugge/Brugge is well known to me and even until this day...

    Hello from Brugge (Bruges) Belgium.

    Thank you and correct Mark. And yes what if, it’s a very debatable item,…how it might been otherwise and this at both sides of the ocean. ------- Hi Steve, thank you for yr kind words. What a coincidence, was working at Zeebrugge as well, maritime & logistics all kinds. Felt very modest to...

    For collector members in Europe, is abovementionned 'Salon' a four hour drive from Belgium worthwhile and what can I expect? In France, I only paid visits to museums but never been at a local Bourse or a Salon Militaires. Thanks+regards, marty

    Hello from Brugge (Bruges) Belgium.

    Thank you all for your welcome. @ JohnS3rd: sorry for my belated reponse but I have to disappoint You, perhaps my introduction wasn’t so clear as I have no American WO1 collection (or US-WO2), mainly German en Belgian items. However, as the First World War is perhaps the major chapter in...

    Hello from Brugge (Bruges) Belgium.

    Dear All, finally made it! Promised Brain some (long) time to introduce myself on this great forum. I'm a non active collector, was lucky to swop or trade pickelhaubes during the eighties. This resulted in a small collection (still in the flesh) of non officier pickelhaubes and some 'wappen'...
