>>>>> SOLD PENDING FUNDS <<<<< WWII Prisoner of War grouping. Navigator from 407 Squadron Royal Canadian Air Force. All of theses items were obtained directly from the veteran and his daughter on the same day. He was a Navigator in 407 Squadron RCAF and was shot down in February 1945. He was captured and assigned a German Prisoner of War identity tag for STALAG VIIA. As the Soviets approached, the German guards forced the prisoners on a long march. If you fell out, you were shot as I recall the veteran saying. One morning near MOOSBERG they woke up and guard had run off, leaving behind equipment. The Luftwaffe helmet and Mauser rifle ammunition twin-pouch were acquired then. Shortly afterwards the Americans passed through and the prisoners were officially liberated. As he made his way West, he saw a U.S. General with pearl handled handguns, sitting on a tank. This is believed to have been General Patton. The Prisoner of War identity disc was glued into the photo album, but is now with the helmet. The helmet is in perfect as used condition, all original, with a single Luftwaffe decal. The New Testament is there, a wooden postcard, a label from a Red Cross package and card, sent to Prisoners of War. His RCAF number and name are with the items.

$3,500 CAD MINOX RIGA spy camera. Serial number 08798 dates this one to 1939-1940 production. These were used by the Allies (MI6, OSS etc.), Nazis, Soviets (KGB, GRU) (who played on both sides) etc. This one is complete with the even more rare special Minox leather purse. Both camera and purse appear to be in excellent condition. The purse is not damaged and has been with the camera for a long time as the leather has moulded itself to the camera. The zipper is fine and the camera seems to operate normally though I have not tested it with film but I have no reason to doubt that it would work. I purchased this camera in Portland, Oregon some years ago. It is thus very possible that it was used by the OSS in WWII. It comes with one film cartridge. The Crypto Museum states that "Minox Riga cameras are extremely rare today and the ones that have survived are often in deteriorated condition. ...eBay ... cameras are often built from post-war spare part finds."

Petrol Oil Water (POW) can, 2-gallon. Canadian 1943 (?) with cap, missing securing chain. Civilian initials scratched into paint so needs repainting. RARE. Surplus dealers had a lot of these in the early 1970s, but they crushed them as scrap metal. Often mistakenly called "Flimsies". Those were even flimsier and larger. These fit in the under body racks of early CMPs before the Jerricans became standard. These were also used for water cindensing can for Vickers Machine Guns Mk. I. RARE now.
