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.

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.

militaria item Miniature silk Imperial Russian flag
- Russian
Probably made as a Red Cross fund raiser in the early years of WW1, this would have been sold on the streets throughout GB, alongside the Belgian and Serbian flags. It is a faithful rendering of the old Czarist flag in miniature, with St George and the dragon on the central shield (for Moscow) and red blobs on the eagle's wings for the provinces.

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 Kampf im Westen stereoscopic photo album & book
- German
This is a classic propaganda piece produced by the German army (published by Raumbild-Verlag Otto Schonstein K-G in Munich) to commemorate the fall of France in 1940. This was volume 2; volume 1 would have commemorated the campaign in Poland, I suspect.

militaria item Pair of miniature six-point dice, marked silver
- European
These good quality dice are certainly of European make and quite possibly German. Each one is exactly 1cm square, while the pair together weighs 14g. Each one is also marked 925. They would appear to be hollow, the body possibly being cast in one piece and the base and the top being sweated in place.

- German
This document (21 x 14.75cm) commemorates the fighting in the new year/spring of 1942 to notify this NCO that he had been awarded the VK2 with swords. It appears to be personally signed by Generaloberst von Kleist, commander of 1st Panzerarmee. It is franked with the headquarters seal for the 1st Panzerarmee.
