Contemporary magazines, drill manuals, regimental and unit histories, photos and photograph albums, postcards, drawings and prints, army lists (of officers, principally American, British, French and German). My personal interest here is in Napoleonic era prints and drawings of uniform studies.

Here is a selection of militaria from this category:

militaria item KuK paper knife
- Austrian
The hilt incorporates the arms of Hungary and various arms of Austria (introduced 7 November 1915), with the motto 'Indivisibiliter ac inseparabiliter'. On the back is 'Geschutzt' (= patented) Hirschler' and the blade is stamped 'Offizielle Kriegsfursorge' (official war fund) - ie it is an official piece for raising money for the war effort.

militaria item Winterhilfswerk ceramic birds and butterflies
- German
Winterhilfswerk (WHW) was a state organisation dedicated to the relief of the poor and the homeless during the winter months (October to March). Little hand painted ceramic figures (originally on pins), of which these are representative, were given out by WHW personnel in the street in exchange for contributions.

militaria item By-knife fork for Highland dress dirk
- Scottish
This would have been part of a by-knife set from the scabbard of a Scots dirk. Together with a small knife of matching design, the set would have been mounted on the outer face of the scabbard, normally one above the other. The dirk would have been mounted en-suite with a large citrine as a pommel.

militaria item Student fencing sash and enamel badge
- German
This silk sash with the little enamel badge, both sporting the Imperial black/white/red colours, epitomises the student duelling world of this era, together with the logo (picked out in silver bullion) 'Rast Ich so rost Ich', loosely: 'Inactive I rust'. In Bavaria the duelling tradition was still active into the 1950s.

militaria item Bisque porcelain plaque of Brandenburg Gate
- German
This Berlin factory marked (impressed sceptre) bisque porcelain plaque in a box has, on the obverse, an image of the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, an iconic motif of the city. This would probably have been made as a piece for the tourists of the era.
