    My old WW1 grenade site

    Here is a link to a website I started but never finished. There is stuff that has been in and out of my collection over the years

    I like the site... Nice collection!
    I particularly like the relic Mills & blown mills (top half). They're a nice addition to any collection and hard to come by (well, hard to find in Canada).

    Your dug-out is impressive, well done! How long did it take you to construct it?

    Cheers!

    old collection

    Thanks Richard, Some of that stuff I wish I still had. Sold off big chunk of my collection because the real estate taxman "reamed me a new one". Starting over isn't too bad though because there's lots of stuff I still need. And this time around I think I will go after more artillery fuzes.. DanoThanks too to staples57

    dug out

    Hi staples57, It only took one day once I had collected all the materials and had the sandbags made (all hand sewn from an old couch ((which had a rich history in itself!)). All materials were either laying around or procured from the local dump and behind grocer (pallates for wood side slats). Final cost 00.00 Thanks Dano
    by the way I talked to that Canadian friend of mine and he has Mill's starting at 150.00us

    Great collection! The 'trench' is awesome. Quick question..., what is the meaning of the red stripe on the '17 helmet? Thanks very much for sharing!
