    Hello from Germany !

    Welcome. You will find some US and DDR collectors here, including myself.
  7. That was my though as well. If you look at the right sword handle, you can see glossy black over flat black, and remnants of glossy paint around the edge of the helmet. Thanks!

    Unknown foreign wings on BDU

    It looks like it may be, although it's not an exact match. Have you seen Japanese wings on US uniforms before?
  9. my opinion is the badge is ok but it has been touched up with paint.

    WW1 Gew.98 & Kar.98

    They definitely are and not always for the better, my kids say they don't offer any shop classes at their school. Apparently even home economics got cut but for some reason band is mandatory much to the disdain of my 15 year old. This is why nobody knows how to actually do anything anymore.

  17. This is in fact Princess Viktoria of Schaumburg-Lippe (born of Prussia, sister of Wilhelm II) in the uniform of the 5th Westphalian Infantry Regiment No. 53
  18. I didn’t pay very much for this, but I wonder if it’s original and possibly repainted. Opinions welcome!

    No opinions? I guess I’ll assume it’s real until proven wrong.

    IJA Mess display

    Yes, a carrying bag or haversack would be good! Is there any mess gear that would have been carried that I'm missing?

    IJA Mess display

    This excerpt from a May, 1944 US Army Intelligence Bulletin discusses IJA rations and also mentions the fuel cans, "The fuel was in 3-ounce cans, one can being intended to cook two portions of rice." https://www.lonesentry.com/articles/intelligence-report/japanese-army-rations.html

    IJA Mess display

    I actually have(somewhere) the fuel canister used to cook with. Is is similar to a small sterno can. If i ever find it i will post pics

    IJA Mess display

    Nice example! I read a very lengthy online discussion on IJA rations, very little meat/fish added to rice and vegetables was the norm. However, I couldn't find nearly as much info on what the typical soldier carried in the field to cook and eat those rations. This is sort of my best guess! Everything is WW2 era with the exception of the chopsticks which may be post war, but I have no way of telling.
