HD color photos from WW2
More pictures of the tool box. Construction is kind of mysterious. I have no idea why it has so many special holes and slots in the sides. I also have no idea why the bottom is two joined pieces and not made of one formed sheet of steel. It would not have been made like that now, 2013.
Finally got my german ww2 toolbox in the mail. I think mine has had a new lock bracket put on it. Its also been brush painted with a dark paint. It might have been tan with red lines, originally.
Just won one of these on ebay.
They are bolts to one of two existing Sturmgeschutz III Ausf Ds.
The seller is going to put up more if you want one
The buyer is selling them to help pay for the restoration of the original Sturmgeschutz III Ausf D.

Controversial Gun Control Campaign Shots
Moms Demand Action recently released a campaign showcasing the stance America has on gun control and tries to put it in perspective. Do you believe that these photos hit home or miss the point?seen on
I don’t normally share political stuff…but this is just stupid.
Last time I checked, guns were also banned from schools. And you can read little red riding hood and play dodge ball at home. There isn’t a nation wide ban on either. wtf.
I do want a kinder egg though.
New arrival. A hand mic for the czech military radio, RM31 transceiver, and RS41 transmitter. The RM31 came out in the early 50s and was used into the 60s. There were many variations of this transceiver, like units for infantry or tanks.
(not my radio. Posted as an example)
Recent arrival. A M8 Howitzer telescope. The M8 was a howitzer version of the M5 Stuart tank. This scope is marked M52 and made by Bell & Howell. NOS too. It would have been mounted up by the cannon to be used for aiming.
This will probably be the closest I get to owning an M8! There aren’t many of them around.
A young German soldier is captured by Allied troops following Operation Aintree and the Battle of Overloon. Venray, Limburg, Netherlands. 17 October 1944.
There is a story here. He’s wearing a cold weather liner that would go inside an issued coat. One that is to big for him and probably came from someone much older. I wonder how that happened? Was it all he had? Was he issued a larger coat and got rid of it before being captured? Did he get it off of his enemy?
