      Congrats on your second tag Robin.   It seems to be from the 53rd Infantry Regiment, 17th Division (says "Walk" 53 on right side although it's difficult to see in the photo). The center column says "Walk" (infantry) unable to read the middle character, which is likely an abbreviation for the company commander's name. Below that is the character for Chu, meaning chutai or company. Right side is 39 (something), soldier's personal number.   This tag seems to be theater made sometime before 1941, the 17th Division was in China  for most of the war including during the period this tag was made.

      Hi everyone I acquired this 9mm holster, stamped 24 July 1979 inside. Most likely from the bush wars in South Africa or Rhodesia. It looks like the Pattern 73 South African holster, but without the eye hole at the bottom, and in two-tone. Any help IDing this will be appreciated. Regards Lefty

      We (my son And I) have some Cobi kits.  They are very affordable and are 1/35 scale which are compatible with Lego mini figures.  I use do to be struck Brickmania, but there stuff is overly priced and do no hold hold as nice as Cobi Blocks.   Use Lego mini figures with Cobi Blocks.  We have a bunch of Cobi kits; especially like their ships, Worl of Tanks kits, and WWI kits.  They are better built than Brickmania and kids can play wi try them.  If you get a chance, buy their planes.  We just got the Memphis Belle kit.  I am currently working on replacing all guns with Brickarms guns and rebuilding the ball turret.
