    Scarce saxon

    I have been lucky enough to be able to buy this very scarce Saxon helmet from a fellow member of the forum. It has all the characteristics of Leib-Grenadier-Regiment no 100 , but, I believe, could also be to Pioneer Battalion 12. All fittings, apart from the central device, in brass, are in...

    Un-serrated Reich’s kokarde for Saxon EM M95

    I have a Saxon EM 95, for which I have been able to find the correct un-serrated State kokarde. I now need the same style Reich’s kokarde. Does anybody have one for sale? I know where I can get the paired set, but I don’t want to pay for a Saxon one I don’t now need, or take the risk of not...

    I didn’t know where else to post this, but I just wanted to alert those who collect trench armour that there is what is described as Second model ‘Sappenpanzer’ trench armour on I‘d only heard of Grabenpanzer, but it’s not my area of interest. Patrick

    British lance cap plates

    There was a comment from Steve Nick in my recent post on British helmets about the expense of the die used to fabricate a lance cap plate. The one shown was on a 16th Lancers trooper's helmet. The officer plates were even more elaborate, being gilt with silver overlays. Below are a couple of...

    If anybody’s interested, MDL have one for sale. I can’t include a precise link, but it’s at, and it’s item SKU VL008. Price is GBP 2750. It’s not in A1 condition, but probably not bad for its age. I know nothing about these and have no idea if this is a decent price. Just to...

    Camouflaged M17

    I've always fancied a camouflaged stahlhelm, but they were either too costly, or problematic. I saw this one, which really appealed to me, and I was able to get it at a price I was very happy with. I believe it's the real thing, but I can live with it if it's not. Views, please. Marked Si66...

    North American weather

    Just a thought for those of you in the US and Canada who are enduring the horrendous weather we’re seeing over here on the news. Apparently the technical term is a ‘polar vortex’. 2 inches of snow and a couple of degrees below freezing stops the country moving in Britain! Look after...
