2013 ANZAC Display

Hi Team,
I was asked to put on a small display again this year at our local museum for ANZAC month. Here's a few shots...

Hi Larry,

The link looks to be for the German AK forum,not this one. Not sure why it does not work, maybe the site has gone down,though this link to the site works.

Re: 2013 ANZAC Display

What a great display! Any chance of seeing detail shots of the two tan Heer M-40s in the display? (One looks like continental eagle insignia).

Hi There,
Thanks for the kind words.
Here's a some images I have on file of both caps. The continental insignia look will be due to the fading contrast between insignia and cap body.
1st off is the 1941 Lubstein.

Secondly is the Bayer-Mutzen Fabrik 1942 m40.

Thank You Sir!
The chap wearing the StuG tunic is a bit darker than I'd normally paint them (plus it isn't a well lit image).
Both caps have real character, the Lubstein being (so I was told) an Aussie veteran souvenir.
Cheers,
Mark
