🇬🇧/🇺🇸 I show this Italian trench art pen/pencil. It was handmade using 2 bullets for Carcano Mod.91 rifle, cut and attached, which were added the pencil and the top part of pen. Those bullets in this caliber remained the same for Italian army in both world wars, plus the part with the year was removed, so it’s impossible to know exactly when it was made, but this kind of items were mostly made in World War One trenches, in empty time between battles.
Free to write me and/or join our Militaria and history chat, link is in bio. 🇮🇹 Vi mostro questa penna/matita italiana di trench art. È stato fatto a mano con 2 proiettili per il fucile Carcano mod.91, tagliati ed attaccati, a cui furono aggiunti la matita e la punta del pennino. Tali proiettili in questo calibro rimasero in uso in entrambe le guerre mondiali, inoltre la parte con la data è stata rimossa, quindi è impossibile sapere esattamente quando è stato costruito, ma questo tipo di oggetti furono creati soprattutto nelle trincee della prima guerra mondiale, nei tempi vuoti tra le battaglie.
Liberi di scrivermi e/o entrare nella nostra chat di Militaria e storia, il link è nella descrizione.

#NoPoliticalIssue: Cossack volunteers (Russia), who actually joined the German combat unit in World War II. They're members of the Sibirisches Kosaken-Reiter-Regiment 2/1 unit. Kosaken-Kavallerie-Division (1944). The symbol used, using the Cyrillic symbol (Russian letters) which reads "ПСВ"; or in the Latin alphabet "PSV", which stands for "Полк Сибирского Войска" (Regiment of the Siberian Forces). Most Cossacks were "White Russians" who served the Tsar during the Russian Revolution, and they volunteered for Germany to fight the "Red (communist) Soviet" which they hated. The photo above shows some Cossack volunteers posing in front of the gate of the army training center in Heidelberg.
Para relawan Cossack (Rusia), yang justru bergabung dengan unit tempur Jerman pada perang dunia dua. Mereka tergabung dalam unit Sibirisches Kosaken-Reiter-Regiment 2/1. Kosaken-Kavallerie-Division (1944). Panji yang digunakan, menggunakan lambang Sirilik (huruf Rusia) yang bertuliskan "ПСВ"; atau dalam alfabet latin "PSV", yang merupakan singkatan dari "Полк Сибирского Войска"(Resimen Pasukan Siberia). Kebanyakan orang Cossack adalah "Rusia Putih" yang mengabdi pada Tsar saat berlangsungnya Revolusi Rusia, dan mereka menjadi sukarelawan Jerman demi memerangi Soviet "Merah (komunis)" yang sangat mereka benci. Foto diatas memperlihatkan beberapa relawan Cossack berpose di depan gerbang tempat pelatihan tentara di Heidelberg

Fake Nazi Guns
Many years ago when I first meet Freeze, he and I were discussing our individual firearms tastes and collections: Old. New. Milsurp. American. Soviet. European. Black Powder. You name it.
But he said one thing that really piqued my interest. Something I had never heard before. It went like this, “I only pay repro prices for Nazi stuff.
That way if it turns out to be fake,
I don’t get hurt”. Hmmm….I thought. I’d never really thought about it before. I personally never gave two hoots about Nazi marked firearms. And in practical terms, if given the choice between two exact guns, the non-Nazi marked ones were always cheaper. Aka, “Shooters”. “Good move”, he grinned. “There is so much fake Nazi stuff out there the market is going to collapse. I personally know of two museums that have fake helmets they believe are real. How? Because I know the guy who faked them.” Of course Freeze told me the name of the guy who was faking museum quality stuff. And how he was doing it. I won’t share it here. The man is dead now anyway. But if you are reading these words and thinking he was an anomaly, or you’ll never get taken?
Open your eyes and take a look at what’s for sale on Ebay right now. You know in your heart-of-hearts there are guys out there, taking rare and expensive firearms, and fluffing them up with some even rarer unit or branch markings.
There is money to be made. And people ARE making it. And DE-NILE wasn’t just a ground feature on Erwin Rommel’s map.
Freeze put his money where his mouth is. He saw this coming a few years ago and liquidated his entire, extensive, and expensive Nazi German milsurp collection. Keeping only a few shooter grade guns. Did he sell at the top of the market? Nope. Could he have gotten more if he had held on a little while longer? Yup.
But every day he waited, he new he was exposed to the inevitable. With the popularity of historical video games and new younger firearms enthusiasts coming into a finite milsurp market, there is some whole-sale bullshit going on these days. Even among the vetted experts.

The German 6. Infanterie Division (6th Infantry Division) was formed in 1921 with its Infantry
Regiments being used to form other units, but retained its 18th Infantry Regiment. In 1934 the
division used the codename Infanterieführer V (Infantry Leader 5), and was composed mainly of
Westphalians, with some East Prussians and Rhinelanders. The 6. Infanterie Division was
assigned to the Saar sector when the Invasion of Poland took place in 1939, but would fight well
during the Battle of France gaining a reputation as an effective fighting unit. It remained in
France on occupation duty until March 1941 when it was sent to East Prussia in preparation of
Operation Barbarossa. Assigned to Army Group Center the division took part in the Drive on
Moscow, and even managed to cross the Volga River at Kalinin north of Moscow in November.
The division held the city until January of 1942 when it was forced back due to the Soviet Winter
Counter-Offensive. The 6. Infanterie Division fought in the Rzhev Salient until March 1943 when
it and a dozen other divisions retreated to shorten the front lines. In July 1943 the division took
part in the Battle of Kursk and Orel before going on the defensive. In July 1944 the division
surrendered with the rest of the surrounded XXXV Korps (35th Corps) at Mogilev. However
enough of the division had escaped the encirclement or returned wounded to form a new 6.
Infanterie Division. With roughly 1,100 veterans of the old 6. Infanterie Division and absorbing
the 552. Grenadier Division they combined to form the 6. Volksgrenadier Division in October
1944. The new division, which was severely understrength, was sent back to the eastern front
and took part in the defensive battles of Poland at Warsaw and Radom in late 1944 before
being surrounded in January 1945 and all but destroyed during the Soviet Vistula-Oder
Offensive. The 6. Infanterie Division was reformed again in March 1945, this time using the
Shadow Infanterie Division Dresden, which consisted of 4 Infantry Battalions, an Artillery
Battalion and an Engineer Company.

September 25th, 1939 - On this day in World War Two history, the German Luftwaffe drops incendiary bombs on Warsaw, Poland.
The invasion of Poland had begun on September 1st of 1939 after German troops dressed in Polish uniforms attacked a German radio station at Gleiwitz on August 31st.
The Germans used this “aggression” among other reasons, to invade their neighbor with the aim of conquering the country.
The German blitzkrieg absolutely devastated older style Polish Defense. For instance, the Poles used their tanks like the French and British as separate infantry support vehicles like had been done in the First World War, and against concentrated Panzer divisions, this tactic was very inadequate.
On September 17th, the Soviet Red Army, Unser the conditions of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, invaded from the East, putting the Polish armies in a full retreat. Their fight was basically over.
The German pincers had met up, and a General “mopping up” of Polish army pockets began to take place.
The Germans offered an opportunity for Warsaw to surrender without a fight, and when this was refused, they let the full wrath of the German war machine out on the city, including heavy bombardments and brutal assaults that not only heavily damaged the city itself, but also the civilian populace and army within it.
When the city finally surrendered, the Poles were defeated, and the country was split between German and Soviet occupations, with the Soviets taking the Eastern portion and the Germans the western, including Warsaw.
The invasion was over, and Poland had been defeated, but their army and Airforce would fight on alongside other allied forces until the end of the war. This picture shows 2 German Panzer II thanks as they advance on Warsaw during the Invasion of Poland.
