ephemera

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 Pair of silver shoe buckles by William Eley
- British
This is a classic pair of Artois-style buckles from the end of the American Wars, but probably pre-dating the French Revolution of 1789. Eley (worked from 1770, died in 1824) of Clerkenwell Green, London, a silversmith, was the king of 18th-century bucklemakers and the inventor of the patent spring clip mechanism.

- 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 Porcelain beer stein, Wurttemberg Pioneer Battalion 13
- German
This is a little unusual, being the pontoon company (no. 4) of the 13th Pioneer Battalion (Wurttemberg) of the German Army. It is dated 1909-11, denoting the two-year conscript service of Pioneer Steeb who had this made as a souvenir by R. Kahle of Ulm-on-Danube (maker mark under hinge of lid). The base has the traditional lithophane.

militaria item Letter from Sachsenhausen concentration camp
- German
This is a rare surviving letter in German from Gustav Salek, possibly a Czech political prisoner, in Sachsenhausen concentration camp. It is dated 21 April 1940 and I have translated it below - please excuse any mistakes, as German is not my mother tongue.

militaria item Porcelain beer stein, 9th Wurttemberg Infantry
- German
This stein is unusual insomuch as it is not Prussian, but rather one of the smaller states, Wurttemberg. It is inscribed round the base: '7.Comp. 9.Wurtt.Inftr.Regt. No.127.Ulm. 1904-06'. 'Gefreiter Kaser' is painted just under the top wreath on either side of the State Wappen (coat of arms). There is a lithophane in the base.
