A very nice bringback German army officers full dress brocade belt & buckle in very good condition.
Introduced in 1937 it is of silver ribbed brocade with two horizontal green stripes running its full length. Buckle is of white metal with finely detailed Wehrmachts-Adler surrounded by oakleaf wreath. The entire belt is backed in green felt to prevent rubbing & slipping. Condition is very good with some wear overall & to reverse side some small moth nips in places to felt & a small rust stain none of which is visible on the outside display side.
Interesting piece & a souvenir of the German occupation of Europe.
Excellent example of this scarce frog with its original helve strap in good used condition.
Interesting German field flask with brown corduroy cover & '17' date to waterbottle.
The manufacturers ink stamp & date are stamped to the main bottle & visible when the cover is removed. Belt clip minus.
An open topped webbing tankers holster dated 1942.
There are six cartridge loops to the front of the pouch & a loop for carriage of the cleaning rod. The ink markings ' MECo 1942' can be seen inside the belt loop .
A rare French M35 Tank helmet specifically designed for tank crews with this piece having the scarce crossed guns & armoured head roundel for battle tank personnel.
This model of helmet was also worn by AFV crews & cavalry personnel & was widely worn by French tank & motorised troops in the run up to WW2 & certainly saw much action during the 1940 invasion of France when she fielded , as a nation, a much larger number of Armoured vehicles than the Germans .
Badged to the front with the Model 37 roundel of crossed guns & armoured head for battle tanks this helmet would have been used by those personnel.
Factory finished in the dark green colour of pre WW2 issues this totally untouched specimen is marked to the interior crown of the shell with manufacturer name ' Franck' . The multi piece sheepskin liner system conforms to the 1937 version which was slightly improved from earlier issues. When one inspects the liner band a clear 1939 dated ink stamp for the maker 'Ets Couet In Levallois Perret ' can be seen. Original drawstring intact. Leather brim pad is excellent with no cracks to the leather. There is a small area of rodent chew to one edge of the neck strap ( See image ).
A fantastic piece of French combat history , service used & oozing history from the early fighting during the Battle For France.
A battledress removed printed Airborne Pegasus patch in good condition with light wear.
Embroidered early Parachute title in good condtion.

An M17 model Austro Hungarian trench/ighting knife with an apparent field made brown leather cover to scabbard.
