Re: whats the best repro WEB Y-STRAPS - 1944 militaria or At

These were all I got off before the camera died. I've had them for coming up on 2 years I think. Used hard, other than paint wear, and some muck and grime and some fading(as the real thing would), solid as a rock.

Blueing steel consists of boiling steel in a caustic solution of Sodium Hydroxide and a nitrate salt such as Potassium nitrate.

Colours can depend on temperature, time and exact composition of the solution.....

Re: M40/41 6 Button tunic

I have one of the new ATF M36's arriving next week. Be interesting to see how it stacks up quality wise against my texled m42.

Theres some interesting reading in 'soldaten', a book which documents secretly recorded conversations between POWs during and after the war. The...
