I have meanwhile a lot of new stuff. But i will not upload them all here because some are just some simple stuff that i need to make some other stuff complete. The first one is a German basket for 77mm grenades (the short grenades). Normally made ​​with reeds. This one is the 'Ersatz' model and its made since 1917 with bark. The basket is in good cindition. Some holes in the bask but the stamps are excellent! Its made by the Rheinische Waffen und Munitionfabrik Cöln.


















The second item that i will show now is the French Fuse 30/55 Mod 1913. This is the last version of the Fuse 30/55 Mod 1886/89 for use in Anti-Aircraft guns. The Fuse 30/55 Mod 1886/89 is a Robin percussion system that evolved into the Saussier percussion system since the Fuse 30/55 Mod 1886/89. It was used on 75mm Grenades for guns like the Canon de 75 Mle 1897. This had a reason why this fuse was modified for AA guns. The Fuse 30/55 Mod 1913 was designed for long range targets and have a time of 0 to 49 seconds. While the most smaller fuses had a time between 0 and 22, 24 or 31 seconds. 

 






The next one is the No.1 Transport Plug. Also not rare, but also not easy to find in good condition. This one is made with copper and was used for mortar grenades. However, an exception is not impossible. I have no idea who made this, but i can see its made in August 1916.








And its not all! The No.2 Mk.II Transport Plug is made with copper. I have no idea wich factory this is. Its made for all grenades with this diametre, but not for mortar grenades. I am happy with this one. The stamps are great! This one i have place on my 60 Pounder.







Ooooooo Yes! The next one i can be proud and is my third transport plug that i can present now. They are not very rare, but they are not easy to find with the stamps in good condition. This is the British No.8 Transport Plug. It was used for transporting heavy calibre grenades between the factory and the battery on the field. I have put my plug on the 6 Inch Grenade.

And i go further now! This is a new project for me. A German Machinegun Magazine. It was found during groundworks on the Mosselmarkt at Passchendaele. 

 




The next are 3 iron beams for narrow gauge. I expect soon the rails for it.




This is not very special, its a British 114 x 86R Shell case for the Ordnance QF 4.5 Inch Howitzer. The 117 x 86R shell case is the Mark II shell case. Meanwhile the Mark I was the 114 x 73R. Its made in 1918 by the Curran Metal & Munitions Company from Cardiff and was filled with Cordite.








The next one is the 155x113R Shell case for the German 15 cm schwere Feldhaubitze 13. i have no grenade for it, but i have the sollution for it! You never guess what.  cool It is made by the Polte Magdenburg in December 1916 with the inspection number SP289 (Spandau 289).






Also not rare, but hard to find with good stamps is this French Trench Shield. It is made in 1902.












The last one for today is this Kodak No. 2 Folding Autographic Brownie camera. This camera is made in January 1918 by the Kodak Canadian Company Ltd, and the model is made between 1915 and 1926 by varios factory's. Opposite the Vest Pocket Kodak (also know as "The Soldiers Camera" or as "The Soldiers Kodak"), the Kodak No. 2 Folding Autographic Brownie camera.  was less used by the soldiers in World War One. i have no case for it, but for €25,00 i can not complain.

Your collection looks like you are particular to the WW1 items, which would make sense because you were part of BF1918, lol.

Meanwhile, three new cartridge cases. The first cartridge case is a cartridge case for the German 105mm howitzers and not the fieldguns. This was the 110X92R and mine was manufactured in iron. So Erzats variant. The factory is not (yet) known. But the stamps declare that it was used by the Navy and was manufactured in April 1918 with the lot number 1515 and inspection mark Spandau 347.




And i have also the 110X505R catirdge case, used for the 105mm guns and not the howitzers. Mine was manufactured in August 1909 by Polte Magdeburg with number 172 and equipped with navy stamp. The primer was made by Feuerwerkslaboratorium Siegburg in 1914. 




The lalst one is a French 105x390R and was used on the 105mm Canon de 105 mle 1913 Schneider. Manufactured by Schneider à Bordeaux in 1917.

New in my collection is this Kodak Vest Pocket Autographic. It was a version of the Vest Pocket Kodak. It had a Autographic feature and use a 127 film. Kodak manufactured this model between 1915 to 1926 and over 1,750,000 models were sold! Many of those camera's were used during the First World War by the soldiers on the field. Because of this, the camera is also know as "The Soldiers Camera". The camera is extremely small, so it can fit good in pockets. On of the pictures, you can see how small this camera is. That picture show us my oldest and my youngest camera (Nikon D7100) in my possession. 2014 vs 1915!
