M9050 - TELEGRAPHTRUPPEN BELT BUCKLE.   £165
A pretty rare wide belt buckle for the Prussian Telegraphtruppen, or Telegraph troops, steel buckle with normal prussian buckle centre but the buckle is extra wide and has a flat loop rivetted to each side, to enable these specialist troops to support a reel of wire and leave their hands free when working. These special belt buckles were only issued to these troops and have normal fittings to the rear for the belt leather. This particular buckle has had the facing side plated, possibly for parade use and though worn in places its still very good.

M9266 - RELIC M16 HELMET SHELL.   £45
A relic M16 helmet shell that was found on the Wipers battlefield some years ago. It is fairly corroded with holes but has good shape and makes an historic display item.

M9217 - PRUSSIAN INFANTRY FIELD CAP.   £250
Very good condition field service "pork pie" cap, with red infantry piping and Prussian cockade buttons, interior is stamped with various details and 1915 date, fairly large size and no moth or damage.

M7849 - PRUSSIAN BELT AND BUCKLE WITH TROPHY BADGES.   £100
A german firstwar belt with steel Prussian belt buckle and having been used as a trophy belt, with the addition of various british regimental cap badges, still attached to the belt leather, though a number have been removed, interesting item.

M9622 - PRUSSIAN BELT AND BRASS BUCKLE   £165
A good leather belt with a prussian army, brass buckle, also in good condition.

M9442 - PRUSSIAN ARMY PICKELHAUBE   £450
A well used but intact prussian army pickelhaube, black leather shell with early brass eagle badge, spike and fittings, has its original liner intact, missing metal edging to front peak and only thing non orignal appears to be the chinstrap.

M9441 - PRUSSIAN ARMY BELT AND BUCKLE   £125
A decent condition leather belt, with the later prussian, painted steel buckle, which has around 80% of its light green paint intact.

M9418 - PILOTS LEATHER HELMET   £100
Pilots leather flying helmet, with neck guard, goggles strap to crown and ear covers with poppers, leather still in supple condition, lining material in poor condition, but helmet displays well.

M9185 - M18 HELMET SHELL.   £250
A good M18 helmet shell, though missings its liner, the rivets are in place and it shows a lt of its original greenish tan paint finish, very sound with no obvious rust pitting.

M9186 - M17 COMBAT HELMET.   £425
A pretty good M17 combat helmet with most of its original factory tan finish intact, with traces of light green camo over paint and also has a good liner assembly with all pads intact, though missing its chinstrap, has no rust pitting and is a good example of its type.

M9634 - IRON CROSS WITH PHOTO AND AWARD DOCUMENT   Sold
Original document for the award of the Iron Cross 2nd class, together with the soliers photo and court mounted Iron Cross and War Merit Cross, interesting group that could be framed for display.

M9161 - INFANTRY FIELD SERVICE PORK PIE CAP.   £375
A good condition Prussian M1910 infantry field service cap, the round shape often known as the "pork pie" cap, its of field grey material, piped in red for infantry and has the two painted cockade buttons sewn to the front, cap is well lined and the material is stamped with various details and date of 1915, cap is clean, good size and free from moth.

M9382 - HORN GRIP TRENCH KNIFE.   £195
A well made german trench knife with horn grip, bright steel cross guard with balled ends and a double edged stiletto blade. Sheath is leather with belt loop and metal tip.

M8556 - GERMAN KUGEL 1915 GRENADE.   £60
A german model 1915 Kugel grenade, has a segmented cast body in the shape of a ball and should have a fuse pull wire to the top but this is missing, otherwise the grenade is in good condition.

M9381 - BONE OR CELULOID GRIP TRENCH KNIFE.   £175
trench or general purpose knife, with white bone or celuloid grip with a twisted look and a fancy steel cross guard, has double edged blade and a all leather sheaf with belt loop.

M8898 - AUSTRIAN M17 HELMET SHELL.   £180
A very sound austrian M17 helmet shell, missing all its liner & chinstrap assembly, has traces of original finish but is difficult to see through the very fine coat of surface rust on the shell, giving it a reddish colour but there is no real pitting or corroded area's, just nice as found original condition.

M7533 - AIRMANS MARKED AND NAMED KITBAG.   £145
What I think is an airmans kitbag, light grey canvas material, with metal eyelets for tie cord at neck and hand strap to base, has painted markings of "Feld-Unterarzt. W.Dehmichen. F.L.9. X111. FL.K."

M9199 - 1917 DATED SOLDIERS GRAVE MARKER CROSS.   £300
A wooden cross grave marker for a german pioneer regiment soldier who died in 1917 and has not been researched, the cross came from one of the 15 german cemetries in the Langemark area of the Leper Salient, that were cleared in the late 50's and moved to 5 mass grave sites and the then unused crosses were disposed of, this one survived, being found 40 years ago in a Langemark farmyard and has been fitted with a metal base display stand. The cross itself is of the original black finished wood, the top post having a carved iron cross and on the lower section, a carved cross over the date of death. On the cross beam is attached an alloy plate headed with the grave number, under which is the man's name, below that is his unit details and lastly his date of death. The cross beam is much older than the vertical post, which looks to have been a more recent replacement to keep it in good order, possibly due to rot. A rare and original western front grave marker to a fallen soldier, that deserves to be preserved in his memory.

M8634 - 08 PATTERN BINOCULARS IN CASE.   £165
A very good condition pair of Fernglas 08 binoculars with original dark grey paint finish, with leather neck strap and painted alloy rainguard, having velvet lining, complete with later model ersatz case with leather fittings. The small binoculars issued from 1916 have good optics and are maker marked to Rodenstock, Munchen, also marked "K.B.Dienst. FG.08." and also have a (J) mark. Case is excellent with all its leather straps in brown leather, case is black and inside the lid is a paper label with operating instructions for the 08, really nice period set.
