    I returned home Sunday evening with a nice assortment of new additions from the SOS show. It was a great time and I really enjoyed chatting with Bruce and Rick! Rick (ordnance) was a great help in acquiring one of the pieces! THANKS!!!!!!
    I am glad I wasn't following Bruce through the show or the tables would have been Hoovered clean! Congratulations on a fantastic haul!!! You found some really nice items.
    Pictured below are my finds at the show. My favorite is the Hedgehog anti submarine rocket, or at least that's what I thought it was. It may be a 7.2 Mousetrap rocket which was used on smaller vessels and had much less recoil than the standard Hedgehog. It has a base fuze, not the nose fuze usually seen on the Hedgehog. Any information would be GREATLY appreciated! I am also quite pleased with the Shinkle and the knee mortar round with the dual stripe markings. Both were on my "really want" list.
    The BLU 7 is also neat and there are a pair of WW2 Russian bombs (sub munitions?). Any help in identifying the Russian bombs would be greatly appreciated.
    THANKS, Pat

    Pat, you got some great pieces, also. Now I see who got the Shinkle! Great deal on that one. Thanks for the time chatting! Cheers, Bruce.

    I know this thread is several months old, but I just stumbled across it. I haven't been to the SOS in about three years, but I am thinking of going again in 2020. Unfortunately I have never found it to be a good show for German Ordnance & Munitions, which is what I focus on these days. I did pick up a mint J-Feder 504 timer last time, but that was it.

    I did not see this thread when first posted. You found a Czech/German Vz34 37mm HE complete round with fuse in the US! I am still looking for one after five years. The Russian bombs are AO-2.5 cluster bombs with AM-A fuses.
