• “THEIRS IS THE GLORY” FILM PREMIER COMMEMORATIVE TICKET

    I thought this an apt item to list on the anniversary of the start of the operation. Aluminium, commemorative film ticket for the showing of the film ‘Theirs is the Glory’, the 1946 film depiction of the British (1st Airborne Division) involvement in ‘Operation Market Garden’. Excellent damage free condition, made from the crashed airframes of gliders used in the operation. Now a hard item to find.

  • WW1 BRITISH BRODIE OTHER RANKS HELMET WITH COVER

    Not sure where and how to start to describe this item, its the most unusual helmet in terms of its liner that I have ever encountered. Standard Brodie, that I consider to be a ‘B’ pattern with the rim lost/absent with the ‘tight’ weave hessian type cover. Four panel standard cover held in place with a tie cord. The cover has at some time had a formation

    The stuff of Mons and the Christmas truce...... A pre WW1 regular army issued trench (or as was then signal) whistle.
