1923 Italian Photo Album, La Fiera Di Padova Se.L'on Benito Mussolini Large leather photo album that was purchase during the large Expo in 1923 at Padova, 23 was the first time Mussolini visited the show as a dignitary.

The inside leather sweatband is named and complete with minimal usage. Inside blue lining again in nice bright colour, under the sweatband a nice clear RZM label can be found. I have named this a Werkschar example and it is but there has never been the usual DAF Werkschar wreath fixed to the front, no holes to be found inside or out , the 37 pattern eagle i would say is factory fitted, its fitted so tight i couldnt even get a slip of paper behind it. So could this be a DAF Walter/Wardens visor, makes sense in my opinion! Anyway Werkschar or Walter this is a nice visor and scarce compaired to a normal DAF ''Festival Cap''. ON HOLD FOR ''J''.

The decal is complete but as found on EF decals the top layer has come away , mainly on the black background, detail is still strong. The liner complete and in used condition, the edges have taken on a dark colour from sweat, a sure sign of combat use. The liner has lost the top layer of finish to areas as sometimes seen on late war leather items, mainly to the edge as has the 1943 dated chinstrap, again a good sign of this helmet never being apart. I have never attempted to clean or treat the leather as there is no need to, it will out last all of us if kept in the right conditions. Size is a 62.

The lot includes his WW2 stars and war medal, Defence is missing, a boxed T&AVR medal with extra bar and two rosettes with some of his uniform removed insignia. There is too much paper for me to list individually but i will give a good breakdown. Clarke applied to join the army in 1944, this cert is dated 24/2/44. His Enlistment Cert is dated 28/2/44 with the Regiment being the SWB's. His paybook is complete but has fallen apart, so all relevant details to the inside as expected. I belive at first he was headed for the Far East but ended up going through Europe. In 1945 it would appear that Clarke was transferred to the 53rd Welsh as a member of the Military Police during his time as part of the British Army of the Rhine. His service with the CMP ended in 1951. Clarke then appears to have a long service in the Territorial Army from the early 50's till the end of the 70's. There are a few letters sent to clarke from friends and family, one mentions a buddy who was a bit of a ''red'' who was KIA and how the Welsh Reg are getting ready for Japan etc. The rest of the papers relate to his service in the TA etc. Lastly there are his medals, according to a late 1940's letter he was entitled to the 39/45, France Germany stars, War medal and Defence, the defence is missing as are his ribbons. The T&AVR medal is fully named to him and still contained in its named box with two rosettes and bar. Lastly to this large grouping is an old Welsh flag and some of his uniform removed insignia and dog tags. Well i hope that makes sense to you? Its an extensive group to a lad who joined up in 44 and kept going all the way to the late 70's and as an extra bonus its new to the market. ON HOLD FOR MARK.
Large R.Cooper Bowie Knife. 10 Inch Blade. This example measures 16 inches from tip to pommel, Bull horn handle has no damage, cross guard again with no damage but some gree verdigris. The blade is clean and has not been sharpened since its factory edge. Blade has clear markings. Scabbard is in nice condition with supple leather and working snaps. NOT FOR SALE TO UNDER 18's AND UK ONLY!
Late War Quist M42 Helmet Shell. Scarce example of a Quist made M42 combat helmet thats in solid condition, this is not a relic thats been filled and then sprayed! The outside finish has been done with a professional hand, it has one knock to the top were the metal can be seen, there is another finish underneath but i cannot make out if this is wartime period. The inside has a couple of diffrent colours. At some point someone has scratched the back of the skirt to reveal the ''Q64'' stamp,underneath the Lot number can be seen. Apparently all Quist 42's are marked Q64.
Lieut H.May, No4 POW Camp Thailand, Family Visit to Grave. Poignant scrapbook put together my H.May's father during a visit by his parents to see his grave in Kanchanaburi cemetery in 1978. Lieut May died in captivity in 1945, i belive he was captured during the fall of Singapore in 42. The book has two large period photos of May in RA uniform to the front, there are a number of copied letters from certain ex POW's the father was in touch with at the end of WW2 about his son in the camps. One page has correspondence with the BBC trying to contact Ronald Searle and a photocopy of his reply to the family. The rest is full of photos and other papers relating to a visit by his parents to see his grave. All are cellotaped into the album and quite a few are loose but i belive all are present. On the last page is a snap shot of one veteran who was in the same camp with his son. There are 22 pages and all are full. Recently found in a local flee market this week in the South Wales area.
London Underground Map, 1939 Dated. In very nice condition and perfect for any London Homefront display.
Luftschutz Gas Mask and Canister In very nice complete condition, some storage marks and a small knock to the tin, details stamped to the top of the lid. The side strap appears to be made from a weaved material, its complete. The inside gas mask i would say is in unissued condition as is the filter.
Luftschutz Gladiator Helmet. In very nice condition with over 98% of its period finish intact, just a couple of marks from storage. The decal rates again at over 98%, one scuff only. The inside liner and chinstrap are complete and in supple condition, original liner tie present. Clear makers details to the back of the shell. I would not call this example mint or unissued but what i can say is that condition shows that its had very little use!
Luftschutze Gladiator Helmet. Vet Bring Back? This was brought in this morning by a gent who recently found it in the roof space of the house he just bought here in Cardiff. Its survived quite well with a nearly all its factory finish but has slight rust bleed coming thru. The decal is , well lets say 40% complete. The inside liner is complete and without damage as is the chinstrap, clear details to the rear of the shell. No i havent cleaned it as im a fan in selling items in the same condition as i find them.
Luftwaffe ''LKpS101'' Summer Flight Helmet. In what would be super condition with clean cloth outer body,no snags or moth damage and all leather straps strong and supple , both poppers working. The inside silk type lining is again very clean with undamaged fur ear pads and both internap plastic receivers present. A clear label stitched to the inside , stamp dated 1938, and a clear makers label with size. So let me now explain the damage! At some point the back electronics have been ripped out leaving the damage seen to the cloth, is this repairable? I belive so and the addition of another loom would hide the damage. If not then its still a displayable item from all sides except the back and of course price accordingly. I pressume the veteran who brought this back ripped out the loom to get rid of all that unsightly wiring and make more room in his kitbag. May i also add that at some point a luftwaffe trap insignia was hand stitched to the front of the helmet, when i asked the relative who brought this about the badge he had no idea when it was added. Ive removed it and no fade can be seen in the material but some small stitch holes seen with a good look.
Luftwaffe Flight EM/NCO Visor Cap. BACK UP FOR SALE!!!! Id say this example is in good condition with good shape to the body, material has some moth nips with most damage to the top of the cap, the peak is solid and the chinstrap complete and supple. Aluminium cockade is complet and tight but the eagle has been denazified by having the ''swaz'' removed. Inside is in nice condition with some staining only, clear makers label to the crown. Cap was a recent ''walk in'' by an elderly gent who's had it in his possession for 20 years having found it in the house he purchased that was full of militaria this one having escaped the auction house! THIS CAP HAS BEEN RELISTED AS THERE WAS A NON PAYMENT ON THE DEAL I HAD MADE WITH A LOCAL COLLECTOR. I HAVE ALSO REDUCED THE PRICE DUE TO THE TIME ITS BEEN ''RESERVED'' ON THE SITE.
Luftwaffe Flight EM/NCO Visor Cap. Unit Marked and Named. KG355. Cap is in good as found condition, this came to me with a couple of others that were brought back by a local veteran, it would appear he didnt take good care with storage as the cap had been folded for some time. The material has maybe one or two moth nips only, the front stiffener was removed giving it a nice look, eagle has gone and there was a cloth breast eagle once applied to the area. The cockade has one broken pin to the rear from the cap being folded! Chinstrap is complete and supple. The inside is in good order but the peak is loose at the corners again from having been folded over the years, sweatband is complete as is the lining, clear makers details to the top, inside the lining is the unit stamp a 1938 date and the added bonus of the owners name tag. The unit stamp relates KG 355 that later became KG55 Legion Condor. Ive had this cap for a couple of months sat on a glass head and the visor is getting its shape back, with a bit of TLC i belive this would be an easy restoration.
Luftwaffe Flying Helmet Throat Mike, One Section. One section of a throat mke as attatched to German wartime flying helmets, internal wire still present, mike has a clear FL number.
Luftwaffe Gefreiter Uniform Rank Cheveron. In very nice condition. Found amongst a small lot brought back by a local 78th Division veteran.
Luftwaffe LKpN101 Summer Flight Helmet. Netzkopfhaube. In nice used condition with good leather, good netting and throat mikes intact, inside has nice sheepskin to the ears and inner bakelite cups, clear cloth label. The rear loom has had the ''break coupling'' removed, all buttons present and fastening poppers in working order.
Luftwaffe LKpW101 Winter Flight Helmet. Very nice five panel leather flight helmet with all its avionics, throat mics, leads and jack. No split seams, no scuffs just minor scratching to the surface and supple leather body. All buckles are present and in working order. The inside fur is again in very nice condition with a clear label and both plastic recivers to the earcups. I cannot find a fault on this very nice example.
Luftwaffe Pith Helmet. Second pattern Luftwaffe pith helmet in nice used condition. The metal eagle has good detail, the tri colour shield is missing. The leather rim has just a couple of small tears only. The inside has a good used lining with the leather sewat band having seen lots of use, good amount of salt marks from sweat on the inside green material. Under the sweatband has some markings but these have faded. Chinstrap missing.
Luftwaffe Single Decal M40 Combat Helmet, EF64. Helmet retains over 90% of its original rough finish, some rust coming thru and some white paint spatter.The decal rates at over 80% complete with a few minor knocks. The liner pins are original to this lid and have never been removed.The shell is stamped for the firm EF and is a size 64. The inside liner has seen better days , its complete but has come away from the liner band in a couple of areas. The chinstrap does not look like a German produced one, its the one that was on there when i purchased this for my collection a number of years ago , i felt no reason the remove it. What i liked was the distinctive curve to the front lid as found on EF helmets and the darker patina around this area from the soldier taking it on and off his head, even with the damage to the liner this helmet displays very well and is an example that saw lots of combat.
Luftwaffe Single Decal M42 Combat Helmet. KIA. Another lid that has to find a new home, purchased a few years ago from an American member of a well known Militaria forum. The helmet was purchased from the veteran who whilst serving during WW2 took this helmet to remind him of a sad episode were he and his unit were clearing out a village at the end of some action when a young lad in Luftwaffe uniform suddenly appeared in front of him brandishing a shot gun, the lad was instantly shot dead, the veteran wasnt sure if he was surrendering or had other intentions, he kept the helmet . Now for the helmet itself, it has the majority its original rough paint finish remaining, some scrapes here and there, the pins are original to the helmet, they have some paint loss, the inside again has most of its finish intact. The shell is stamped ET62 and has a lot number 362. The decal rates at over 80% complete with some loss to the wings and one scrape across the body. The liner has been torn out with the remaining piece at the back having some blood stains, the marks to the steel inside would also suggest blood staining. The long end of the chinstrap remains in supple condition, its not marked. If your a lid collector im sure you will understand how certain helmets ''talk'', this one just reminded me why i really like to collect combat lids, it will still fit in nicely on my shelf.
Luftwaffe Winter LKpW101 Flight Crew Helmet In nice untouched condition, all stitching tight, both side straps are fixed to there poppers, i have not tried to open these as the helmet appears to have been layed flat for a number of years. Same goes for the top strap, its complete but not tried to loosen it. The inside sheep skin has a split down the middle and the front crown area has been damaged from storage. Clear label to the inside. No internal communication equipment as used by bomber crews etc.
M17 Czech Re-issued Steel Helmet. This is a WW1 Austrian helmet shell that was re-issued just after the first world war for the Czech army. The condition is very good with nearly all its dark green/brown factory paint fnish intact, shell has one small knock to the rear only. The liner has had minor usage but three tounge ends have been pulled and one tie string is missing to the undernath pocket holding the pillow, pillow found inside the helmet, the two other pockets are complete with pillows. The webbed chinstarp again in very nice condition with minor staining only. The helmet has a steel lot number stamped to the inside crown ''475''. A very nice example in excellent condition.
M34 Feuerschutzpolizei Helmet, Erel. A well used fire helmet with its period leather neck flap. The helmet has recived an extra coat of black finish over the outside shell. The inside has all its early fixtures including the early spring clip chinstrap, supple liner thats double marked by the Erel firm and all rear neck flap fittings. On close inspection i belive i can make out the two decals under the overpaint. May i add that a quick wipe over the shell with a damp cloth will bring the finish up a treat!
M34 Feuerschutzpolizei Helmet. In very nice condition, outside of the shell has had a second coat of black, this rates at over 98% intact, minor scuffs etc. No decal seen under this second coat. The inside liner and chinstrap are complete and in supple condition, underneath the liner near the brow is a folded news paper, i pressume for comfort. I managed to fold back one corner and found that its a wartime NSKK paper but have not removed it for closer inspection, well its been there for over 75 years and best to leave it as is. Makers symbol stamped to the back neck area of the helmet.
M34 Square Dip Luftschutz Steel Helmet. Condition is very good with over 90% of its dark blue factory finish remaining, one small ''ding'' to the rear only.Ive not tried to clean and belive a light wipe with a damp cloth would bring up the finish The liner pins are tight. The front decal is nearly 99% complete with just the slightest of bubbling to the bottom area. The inside paint finish is complete with the late war cloth type liner in supple condition but one tear near the front on one side. The supple liner again complete but one end has come through the side rivet which holds the strap to the sides, i belive this can be repaired without to much work. All in all a nice scarce Luftschutz model.
M35 Factory Reissue Single Decal Combat Helmet. A very nice M35 helmet with well over 95% of its factory rough ''over paint'' to the outside and 100% rough finsh to the inside. The deal rates at 38%, the damage in my opinion is down to the decal having been placed on top of this rough coat and not being laqured. The liner is in very nice supple condition still having its original tie and the zinc liner band is as expected for a factory reissue. The supple chinstrap is maker marked and has partial date, by all appearance its original to this helmet. A faint Q mark can be seen but no size and no lot number seen under the paint, id say its a size 64. Dave Shirlin has an exact type of lid on his great helmet site at the moment.
M35 Luftwaffe Camouflage Helmet. This is an SE66 produced shell which has had a base coat of tan applied firstly over the original factory finish, then at some point a two colour brush stroke was applied over the top, green and brown.The camo coating remains 80% intact with most of the damage to the crown. I cannot find an trace of decals under the paint. The liner shows moderate wear, its intact and sound, liner pins are tight with washers, liner string is period and i belive original to the helmet. Displays well and if your a brush stroke fan then the way the two colours have been applied should tick your boxes. Lot number appears to be 874 maybe 074.
M35 Luftwaffe Camouflage Helmet. EXTRA PHOTOGRAPHS....................
M35 No-Decal Combat Helmet. Typical Quist factory finished no decal M35 helmet with over 95% of its original matte finish intact. The liner show moderate wear and the 1942 dated chinstrap is in very nice supple condition, it appears to be original to the helmet. The lid is stamped Q64 and has a lot number 2905 at the rear. A neat example. As a side note i purchased this lid around 10 years back in a small shop in the city of Graz, Austria.
M35 Reichsbahn Visor Cap. In very nice condition with sharp colour to the caps material, couple of minor stains and a couple of moth nips to the red piping only, cap still retains a good solid shape. The blue cloth chinstrap is interwoven with gold cloth held onto the visor by two gold coloured buttons.The eagle i belive has been added as im certain these should be gold in colour, its the right pattern but i would expect this to have been a zinc example and guilded. The inside lining and sweat band are complete, just a small section of the celluloid remains, faint makers details can be seen but i cannot make them out. May i add that the two ''whiteout'' patches seen in the photos are due to moisture in my camera lense and not fading to the visor material.
M35 Single Decal Combat Helmet, ET62. A nice M35 helmet with over 90% of its reissued paint remaining to the outer and nearly all its first apple green factory finish to the inside. The decal rates at around 55% complete, no trace of the tri shield to the other side under the paint. The liner has taken on a nice dark brown from use, its in supple condition and named. The chinstap has had lots of use and has stretched a bit from lots of use, long end is strong and supple, short end is complete but frail, ive wrapped this end in a plastic sleeve to protect it. The helmet is named twice. A nice combat used example.
M38 Luftschutz Helmet. Three piece constructed Gladiator helmet with around 95% of its original factory finish, the decal again id say 95% intact. The inside liner is in used condition with one tounge end missing , the chinstrap is complete but has a break, liner and strap are supple. The rear has a number stamp and the former owner has scratched his name inside.
M40 Single Decal Combat Helmet, Q64. This Q64 helmet still retains over 97% of its factory textured finish to the outside and all its smooth finish to the inside. The decal rates at around 45% intact. The liner has nice colour and is in very nice condition, the tie chord appears to be original to the helmet. Chinstrap is RBN numbered and in fine condition but the short end is missing. The liner rattles slightly but as seen from one picture the pins have not been tampered with.
M40 Two Tone Sand Camouflage Helmet. This is an ET66, Lot Number i would say is 4959, making this a Heer example that has been covered with a two tone green sand finish. I cannot make out a decal as the finish is strong in this area. I would say there is over 80% of the sand finish remaining.Slight rust bleed to one small area on the crow. The leather liner is in supple condition , no tie string. The liner pins have not been tampered with but are slightly loose from combat wera, they are all 1940 dated. The chinstrap is supple, full length and maker marked with a date 1941.
M40 Two Tone Sand Camouflage Helmet. EXTRA PHOTOGRAPHS...........
M42 No Decal German Combat Helmet. In very nice condition with lets say 99% of its period flat factory finish intact, some minor scrapes from storage and two small knocks to the top. The shell is stamped NS66 to the rear and has a clear factory ink stamp to the inner dome. Pins are tight! The liner is complete and supple and has had light use if any at all.
M42 Single Decal Army Helmet, ET Production. Here is a great example of a WW2 German combat helmet, a single decal M42. The original paint finish remains in very nice condition with good texture and matt apperance, lets say well over 90% remaining. The decal remains at over 80% with a couple of knocks to the body, from the picture the beak looks a bit ''off'' but its had a tiny knock to the bottom, ive added one photo with some colour enhancement to try hand show the beak area, pictur 2 in the ''additional photos'' section . The liner pins are original to the shell and have not been re-bent. The liner shows moderate wear and in complete condition with no pulls, i have not checked any date to the steel band as its tight to the wall. The chinstrap has a makers stamp and IMHO original to the helmet, its supple with no weakness. The shell has a faint ET makers stamp but no size marking can be made out, id say a 68. The neck area has a again a weak hit and i can make out 3 digits only. I would say that this is a very clean example and new to the market.
M42 Wire Sea Relic Helmet. This example i purchased last year to study the way the wire was attatched to the helmet, interesting that the wire is a plastic covered type, perhaps a phone line and has been attatched the chinstrap bales. Anyway it would appear to have been found from a water sourse, river or ocean, there are numerous shells to the inside and grass growing on top of the lid. Makes a great display and the shell is sturdy enough. Hey if you want a German combat helmet with no doubt that the wire was period applied then this one fits the bill.

No cast number to be found on the pommel. The scabbard is complete with both pairs of wings, the top elastic has stretched somewhat. Along the front of the scabbard the owner has penned in ink using a fountain pen his details. It would appear to read...COOK TAYLOR MX 752654 NAVAL COMMANDO'S, the firts name might be GOOK with a dot above the O and there might well be a 1 just in front of the 4.

As a note when i purchased this over the weekend there was his leather flight jacket, teo cloth pilots wings and a couple of escape maps, they had all been sold by the time i went round for the second time but the info i have might well help with research. Born in Ireland, shot down once been burt during the crash and then spending the rest of the war training other pilots. One of the wings found with the grouping was a fifties Rhodesian paramilitary type earned when he lived in South Africa again training the airforce. So with time this might well help in finding an ID of the former owner. Anyway what im selling is a nice WW2 example thats seen use and is named.

As used by a Private Gamson a South Staffs signaller during the year 1915 in France, the case is named twice with his details and interestingly its recived a coat of dark green paint to the front, sides and top. The binoculars are the civilian type found used during the early years due to the shortage of optics for the British army. The Binoculars are in nice condition with clear optics but one lens is slightly out when focusing, Gamson has used a leather cord as a neck strap. The letter was sent by Gamson from France in 1915 to his sweetheart in South Wales. Ganson was invalided home in 1915 with rheumatic fever.

This example was found in a coal shed in the Antwerp area of Belgium, the owner of the house stated her husband was part of the local defence force during the ''V'' weapon bombing on the habour. The shell has recived a coat of something to prevent more paint loss , i would say the the white finish remains around 75% with the front letters being 90% complete, the letters PAP translate to Protection Anti-Aerienne Passive. The inside still has its well used liner and chinstrap with splashes of white and lots of drips from what must have been a hasty application of white paint. Neat helmet.

There are numerous moth nips to the areas that have been covered as the under seams and behind the chinstrap.

The protective cover has a split to the centre were the inside makers mark can be seen and the ''money shot'' being , by appointment to his majesty the King.

Oh! no size but i reckon around a good medium if that helps.
