Re: Truppenfahrrad - Grab yourself a bargain!

The site for Op' Copenhagen positively screams 'use bicycles on me' however. :D I was very tempted myself, but I would want to use it normally too and I don't think it would be very practical on the edge of the Pennines. So are you actively encouraging the use of bicycles for the OP Copenhagen even...

Re: Truppenfahrrad - Grab yourself a bargain!

If you want an authentic pump and clips, German ebay is where you want to be. These are identical to the war time issue items. I got both for €15 inc shipping :good: http://i.ebayimg.com/t/Fahrrad-Luftpumpe-Metall-mit-Holzgriff-Retro-f-Waffenrad-NSU-Opel-Miele-/00/s/MTY3WDMwMA==/z/qwwAAOxy2YtRt23x...

Truppenfahrrad - Grab yourself a bargain!

Many people think of the German army of WW2 as being highly mechanised but in reality they relied heavily of horses and Bicycles, Throughout the duration of WW2 over 3 Million were used, often civilian models pressed into military service. Even late in the war there were entire companies of Panzergr...

Re: Military watches magazine

Yeah, the hands free-wheel a bit in transit and the battery is disconnected - remove the transit tab and click the bezel in and all is ticketyboo. I don't think any of the watches are 100% perfect replicas - the US watch I'm sure is bigger than the real thing (my Timex is quite a small face). But r...

Re: Military watches magazine

The issue 1 watch doesn't look too bad but I had a look at issue 2 in the news agents today. The Luftwaffe aviator watches were not working, the second hand was stationary. Ok I thought, maybe the battery is not installed or they have the little plastic tab in place to save the battery. Then as I mo...

3kg charge dimensions are 19.5cm x 16.4cm x 7.6cm so your mess tin should fit nicely! :good:

Re: Pioneer/Alte Hasen Zug

Woo, what a cool bit of kit. Looks rather more sensible for storage of mess tins and zelts (and sandwiches) than the A frame as well I see the shovel straps to the side, well that is going to be very convenient. Not. :rofl: OK, sign me up for this particular bit of lunacy. I'll bring my camera so i...

Re: Pioneer/Alte Hasen Zug

Nice one Martin! :good:

I think you would have the shovel instead of the e-tool, you would just retain the bayonet.

Backpack attaches to the Y's exactly the same way as the A-frame does.

Detailed nicely here:

Re: Pioneer/Alte Hasen Zug

If anyone wants to carry a pionier shovel into combat I have one with correct leather carrier. Works well with the pionier backpack which I can also loan out. I'll be carrying a pionier axe and Andy as NCO will be carting around the small wire cutter pouch ( he doesn't know this yet) :giggle: For wh...

Re: Obergefreiter chevron location

It's also quite interesting to note that 9/10 of the breast eagles are positioned parallel to the top of the breast pocket rather than parallel to the horizontal!

A great source of reference for insignia placement are the original items on the collector guild website:

Re: Obergefreiter chevron location

15cm from the shoulder seam to the top of the chevron sounds about right.

From what I have seen, if you lay the tunic flat, the top of the chevron should be at the same level as the bottom edge of the chest pocket flap.
