    Mr. Potato Head Guard Pickelhaube

    Hello Pickelhaube friends! Working on cataloging a client's collection, and as pretty as this one is, I don't like it. Out of obligation to the client, though, I thought I should seek a second opinion. I am not finding any unit for which helmet with a Guard eagle would have a fluted spike...

    Well, it's over for another year. Speaking for myself, this was one of the most interesting SOS events that I have ever attended, and I have been to all but the first one. There were hiccups, of course - there will always be a few things that go haywire, but all in all, it was quite smooth...

    Mess Kit Mystery: Ruritanian?

    OK, I give up and admit defeat. I have beaten my head against the wall long enough, and am seeking guidance from my betters. Does anyone here recognize this pattern mess kit?

    GOOD NEWS - SOS 2013 will be BIGGER!!

    Posting this on behalf of Bill Combs and the OVMS board. They want to get the word out asap! Personally, I hope to be able to 'expand the empire' by at least 2 tables, but they are going to ration expansions - they want to accommodate as many people as they can who have been waiting for years...
