militaria item Hertfordshire Rifle Volunteers crossbelt and pouch
- British
This unit was raised in the early 1860s, initially as only one battalion, later further battalions were added, but the absence of a unit number on this piece indicates its early provenance. It was probably worn by a sergeant or an officer. The Rifle Volunteer movement of the 1860s stemmed from the French invasion fears of the era.

militaria item Luftwaffe ammunition pouch
- German
This is the classic 30-round Luftwaffe pouch of WW2 in brown leather with a pebbled finish and aluminium fittings. These were developed from the cavalry ammo pouch of WW1, model 1911. It is marked 'Wien' for Vienna, but the date and maker's mark are hard to read with the pebbled finish.

militaria item Reichskriegsfahne (Third Reich war flag) - Kriegsmarine
- German
This fine flag (1.7m long) was made by Hannoversche Fahnenfabrik. It is the standard war flag, with navy markings, flown on all small ships of the German navy in WW2. In particular, this size was used as a commissioning flag for U-boats, viz early photos showing this.

militaria item Set of ammunition pouches, model 1911
- German
These are the standard Wehrmacht issue from 1933 on, replacing the 1909 type which carried 60 rounds as opposed to 30 in the later model. In this case, one is a Berlin product, the other being made in Vienna - a regular 'anschluss'! Although they are not strictly a pair, they have obviously been together for some time.

militaria item Y-straps
- German
This is the standard German leather harness for supporting ammunition pouches carried either side of the belt buckle on the leather waistbelt worn by all members of the armed forces, other ranks at any rate, including naval and Luftwaffe units in ground roles. There is a faint but legible RB number stamped on one of the forward leather straps.

militaria item MK5/6 Webley revolver holster, Surrey Yeomanry marked
- British
This is marked 'SRY' on the reverse for 'Surrey Yeomanry', with the maker's name 'Thomasson & Co.' stamped on the leather retaining strap. There is a broad arrow stamp, together with a faint date stamp (15?) to the inside. Both the MK 5 and 6 pistols would have fitted this.

militaria item Porte-feu or slow match holder, unmarked silver
- Indian
This little device, 12cm long, would have held a lighted slow match for igniting cannon, powder charges or fireworks. The match was held in place by the silver hook on the short chain under the lid which has a model of a monkey eating a piece of fruit. Perhaps this is a souvenir from the Mutiny of 1857/8.

militaria item Tube of SS issue frost salve
- German
Marked: 'Frostschutsssalbe // Wehrkreissanitarspack VI // Osnabruck // SS-Packung', also with 'Leere Tuben sammeln' ('collect the empty tubes' - the original recyclers!), this stuff was used to protect the lips and nose from the cold and possibly, in extreme conditions, the feet and hands. It would have been most useful on the Russian Front.

militaria item Pair 7 x 50 prismatic binoculars
- German
This particularly fine pair was made by Busch of Rathenow (East Prussia). The case is made by Hensoldt of Wetzlar and is marked with the Weimar Army acceptance eagle. The lenses are almost as they left the factory and the resulting vision extremely sharp. There is a 1944 date on the steel snap of the case, together with a code 'crn'.
