British WWII Early War Pattern 2-Inch Mortar Side Plate. This pattern was used on the earliest 2-Inch mortars including all variations of the Mark II (Mk 2) pattern used by troops in England and Australia at the outbreak of the war through early 1943. Currently these are not a restricted item in the United States but they may be prohibited in some other countries so check your local laws. Most of these originated in Australia and had a torch demill cut but this one has been repaired and test fit on two different mortars. Extremely rare to find this pattern today in any condition. Clear maker code and Broad Arrow /|\ stamp are on the front near one outer edge. Essential item for completing a live 2-Inch Mortar or making a demilled mortar look complete. Also included is the early war pattern firing lever with chain and leather lanyard. This would bolt onto the small firing wheel/drum to assist with firing in damp or cold conditions where the user needed an easier grip. Leather tab as split where it connects to the chain but displays well and would serve as a pattern if you wanted to fabricate a replacement. Only this one set available.

British WWII 2-Inch Mortar Side Plates. This is the mid-war pattern that continued for the rest of the war and into the postwar period as used on all variations of the Mark VII (Mk 7) and Mark VIII (Mk 8) 2-Inch Mortars. Currently these are not a restricted item in the United States but they may be prohibited in some other countries so check your local laws. Uncut and removed from demilled infantry mortars. Have a few with clear 1942 and 1943 dates along with maker markings. Choices available while they are still available. Perfect for completing a live 2-Inch Mortar or making a postwar mortar look presentable with a wartime dated part. Usually never available on the loose so a fairly hard item to source on its own.

GrenadeDetsOriginal British and Commonwealth Number 36 Grenade Practice / Training Drill Detonator Fuze Assemblies. The anvil on this pattern is made to allow loading into a grenade but to prevent the base plug from being screwed on all the way. This eliminated confusion on a grenade being armed and also prevented troops from ending up with nonfunctional detonator assemblies in the field. The detonator tubes and the cap in the anvil have inspection holes for easy verification that they are inert training items. Otherwise they look like the live example. Perfect for completing a cut-away display grenade or for filling a three or twelve detonator tin as issued with the transit crates. Being released by the military, each detonator has been slightly squashed but the aluminum tubes are very easy to straighten back out with a pair of needle nose pliers or similar tool since the fuze inside prevented the tubes from being flattened all the way.

British Smoke Grenade Striker Mechanism. This pattern is used on the very rare WWII Number 80 and Number 83 Smoke Grenades and the design continued well into the postwar years. The two part mounting base with screw threads is wartime production along with the mouse-trap mechanism. The fly-off lever is postwar marked but virtually identical to the wartime pattern. Extremely rare even in the UK and could easily be used to build a replica Number 80 or Number 83 Smoke Grenade using a common U.S. pattern empty modern smoke grenade canister since the British Striker Mechanism could be installed into the top with minor effort.

Original WWII Wireless Set Number 19 Control Unit (Box) Number 3B Mark II. These were used in some Universal Bren Gun Carriers, Armoured Fighting Vehicles such as the Daimler Scout Car and Daimler and Humber Armoured Cars, and some light vehicles such as truck and jeeps. It is designed to function with a Wireless Number 19 Mark III having an intercom system. Being a dual switch box, it has the capacity of three crewman dongles to connect with some operational for A-Set, B-Set and intercom, and others being dedicated solely to intercom for stations like the vehicle driver. The unit has been powered up for testing. As can be seen in the photographs, the indicator light illuminates when both switch boxes are set to intercom functions. This served to alert the radio operator that nobody was monitoring the A-Set for incoming transmissions. When switched to monitor the A-Set, the indicator light turns off as it should. When we hooked the control unit with three headsets to a PSU and a transceiver, the intercom functioned and speech could be heard on three connected headsets. And tests of the PSU in the vibrator mode showed that the dynamotor would automatically engage when a microphone was keyed and the control box was flipped to the A-Set operations.

These are what you see General Rommel wearing while on campaign in the desert serving as dust goggles. Condition of the eye-shields themselves is unknown since they haven't been taken out of the packages. Being thin celluloid and 65+ years old, they are likely brittle so best kept as they are for a collection.

Original WWII First Pattern British Brown Denim Battledress Blouse. Tagged from February 1940 so this is the type that the British Expeditionary Force (BEF) would have had in France at the time of the Phony War and later for the Dunkirk evacuation. Size 5 (see photo of tag) but keep in mind the measurements on the wartime pattern clothing tags for denims indicate the man's normal size. Denims were produced significantly larger than the tags indicate because they are meant to fit very loosely over the normal heavy wool Battledress trousers and blouses. Excellent condition, probably unissued, but has a couple of very small storage marks visible in the photos if you look for them. Early war pattern had stitched on paper size/maker tags and someone had the forethought to preserve it and it is in a small envelope inside one of the breast pockets. Only this single example available.

Original WWII Second Pattern British Green Denim Battledress Trousers.

Denims were produced significantly larger than the tags indicate because they are meant to fit very loosely over the normal heavy wool Battledress trousers and blouses. Proper later war pattern durable tags in place with 1945 date and W /|\ D ink stamps. If not for the fact that this has an airborne/commando knife pocket, they would be mint and unissued. Late in the war denims were used as regular uniforms in some regions without wools underneath. Possibly this knife pocket was a manufacturer feature for a limited number of sets, or it was a unit tailer that added it. Either way it is very professionally sewn and very unique in my experience. Only this single example available.

Original WWII Second Pattern British String Vest. First pattern had woven shoulder straps which tended to cut into the wearer's shoulders when carrying a heavy load. This is the second pattern produced with improved cloth shoulder sections. Mint condition Size 4 which is the large and will fit a man with coat size chest 38-44 since they are designed to stretch/expand. Associated as an Airborne troops garment because it had magical attributes enabling it to be unwoven and turned into a rope which continues to be perpetuated unfortunately as a true thing. These were in fact issued to all arms of service including the infantry and the commandos for wear as an insulative cold weather undergarment. They work equally well in hot, tropical climates as well since they prevent the outer wear from sticking to the skin and promote added airflow to keep you cool. For cold weather wear, they trap body warmth while being worn under windproof clothing. Made famous again in the mid-1980s Arnold Schwarzenegger movie Commando by the villain Bennet who wore one.

Original WWII British and Canadian Early Pattern Ankle Boots a.k.a. Ammunition Boots. Boots complete with toe plates, heel plates and hobnails in very good condition. Inside each boot are the markings 1941 Eagle Shoe with ND 44 and a Size Marking 6. The last photo shows a drawing of how the markings appear since a clear photo can't be taken. These boots do not have capped toes which were common for British infantry. Rather this pattern would be more common for Canadian infantry or the British navy. Small size but very scarce to find original ammunition boots in such good condition.

Original British WWII Lieutenant Colonel's Pre-May 1942 Pattern Service Dress Jacket, Service Dress Trousers and Service Dress Belt. Very good overall condition uniform grouping with badges denoting rank of Lieutenant Colonel but epaulets have signs that this officer was a captain when the uniform was first made for him and he kept it as he progressed to major and then on to his final rank as lieutenant colonel. The tailor that produced this uniform added matching fine linen cloth which is sewn into the waist of the trousers and inside the sleeves of the jacket for added comfort and these show signs of wear. Likewise there is minor signs of this man having worn a leather Sam Browne on the upper back of the jacket where it would cross but this doesn't deter. Sewn ribbons are for the War Medal and the Defense Medal. All brass buttons are British Royal Army Ordnance Corps with matching Ubique collar badges. Large size with jacket size 42 regular and pants hemmed to a length appropriate for a man 5'10" with waist 32-34 inches. Jacket is tagged with name of soldier, his regimental number and the maker name Stone Brothers of Leeds. This uniform/soldier has never been researched.

Inside pocket has sewn in wartime dated tag with the soldiers name and regimental number.

Medium size estimated between 38 and 40 regular.

Original Canadian WWII Regimental Sergeant Major's Service Dress Jacket, Service Dress Trousers and Service Dress Belt. Epaulets each have metal Canada should titles and each sleeve has blue felt 2nd Canadian Infantry Division formation patches. Brass buttons are all the correct Canada military pattern. Each lower sleeve has matched Warrant Officer / Regimental Sergeant Major insignia. Lower right sleeve has overseas chevrons denoting five years of service including the white chevron issued to men that volunteered in 1939. Jacket has the man's name as well as his rank of Regimental Sergeant Major. Trousers came to us as a set but are named differently and 1943 dated. Unresearched grouping but should be easy to track down being only so many Regimental Sergeant Majors in the Canadian 2nd Infantry Division during WWII. Lapels show regimental collar badges had been worn at one time but are no longer present, otherwise we'd already know without research where this man fought during the war. Large size uniform that will easily fit a full-size mannequin as can be seen on page 25 of the book Uniforms of the WWII Tommy.

One of the photos shows the T over W /|\ D marking at the bottom of the white limning where it was sewn into the lower edge of the wool tartan material. Another photo shows how this kilt would be worn with cut-away service dress alongside the regimental cap with matching tartan backing behind the unit cap badge.

The Balmoral Bonnet / Tam O'Shanter was produced by Eastern Hats and Caps of Nova Scotia. Large tartan backed cap badge is the type adopted in May 1944 with MG after the unit was re-designated a machine-gun battalion with the 3rd Canadian Army which landed in Normandy on D-Day with Universal Carriers. The matching pair of collar dogs also have the MG designation. Collar badges and brass shoulder titles were worn by officers and other ranks on service dress uniforms while the hat could be worn with battledress or service dress. Very nice original grouping.
