A Water Colour Painting of a British Artillery Officer

Here we offer a well executed water colour portrait of a Lieutenant Colonel in the Royal Artillery. Based on the mutten chop sideburns, the rank style and the Crimea medals, I would assume this dates late 1850s, early 60s. No name associated with the painting, but a wonderful back drop to a Crimea medal collection.

Pattern 1833 Pioneer Sword

Offered here is an original British Army 1833 Pioneer Sword worn by Infantry Pioneers. This was a weapon and tool in one. It is not a bayonet, but a sword hanger worn by other ranks with the role of pioneer in an Infantry Battalion. The saw back was considered a proper tool for cutting, but such a tool could cause horrific injury to an enemy. In World War one the German soldiers had saw back bayonets and anyone found with one were given a good work over if taken prisoner. No one could survive a thrust with such a weapon.

This particular example is in overall good condition. The blade is in good shape, with some minor wear and an overall pleasant gray patina, but well marked and undamaged. The blade has inspector and ordnance marks. The brass hilt is in good condition and firm. A great example of a specialist weapon/tool. No scabbard.

WWI ID Bracelet to a Tunneler

During WWI soldiers were issued ID discs worn around the neck, but many also wore custom wrist bracelets to help ID their corpse if the worst were to happen. Far to often soldiers were torn apart by artillery and their identity could not be confirmed, so soldiers would double up their chances of getting a proper burial. Here we offer such a bracelet in brass on a leather band named to a Sapper F. Nott of the Canadian Engineers. I believe he is a member of a Tunneling Company in the CE. More research required.

Operation Athena Maps for the Battle Of Musa Qal 'Eh

A more modern collectable for those interested in Afghanistan. Offered are a group of Maps dating from the 2007-2008 operations to quell the Taliban influence and occupation in and around Musa Qal 'Eh near and on the Helmand and Urzagon provincial border. This was a joint UK and Netherlands Op. This was by no means a small operation, it was one of the larger battles during the NATO Insurgency operations in this troubled land. It was a success, but with some blue on blue casualties with Dutch Forces.

WWI Prisoner of War Camp Rennbahn Veterans Journal 1946

We offer here a rare commemorative item put together for veterans of WWI who served in a POW camp for a post war annual muster or reunion. It is a paper back journal printed in 1946 commemorating the experiences of POWs who spent time in one of the POW camps in Germany that held British Soldiers, Camp Rennbhan. Apparently they allowed the prisoners to take pictures, draw and sketch and write articles to a camp paper. All of these bits of camp life have been compiled in this wonderful post war dedication to the POWs and their experience together waiting for the war to end in captivity. Full of bits about camp life, camp shows, stories of camp life, a great reference to a WWI collector or researcher. Overall condition is very good and is named to a soldier in a British Regiment. Cool item.
