German Colonial Collection Sold

Post by Bildberichter » 23 Jul 2020 07:57

Hi Guys

I am sorry to say, but I have sold off most of my DSWA Schutztruppen collection to finance my first love, Boer War OVSAC artillery.
There are however a few loose items still up for grabs if anyone is interested:

KA 1910 marked saddle bags:

Schutztruppe button:

Colonial book:

Watch chain:

Cameroon stamp:

I also have a KS officer's P08 user manual somewhere (given to a SA Union Defence Force officer in a field hospital), but I first have to remember where I put it... :roll:

Boer Regards from Bloemfontein!

Dear Heunis

It's a shame that you want leave the Schutztruppe. I wish you continued success in the Boer War OVSAC artillery.
(Perhaps in the future you will be able to drive out your opponent out of your country. - :D -)

Cheers Holger

Hallo Holger!

I will still be clad in brown corduroy, carry a Mauser, man a Krupp gun and shoot at the English, so almost the same! :wink:
