    Oh dear, how sad, never mind.


    That's excellent news that you got the Jeep. I thought that you still had a chance of getting it provided that you "stayed positive".

    I would beg to differ. I am fully aware of how the dispersal code system operated and how the codes were assigned which, incidentally, was introduced during WW2 and intended to disguise the maker and...

    If we all accepted that the "M 49" was a "Dispersal Code", for a moment, then one would expect the Poole made example to also have a "Dispersal Code". If we all continue to accept that the...

    I wouldn't have thought that putting the Jeep in an auction would achieve significantly more than you originally offered for it. If the owner has decided to put it in an auction then I would try and...

    My advice is to definitely go to the auction and see what happens. It may not reach the hammer price that the seller is hoping for and you may still have a chance to buy it.

    I do not believe that the M 49 on these No9 bayonets is a dispersal code but I do believe that the "49" part denotes the year of manufacture. I came to this conclusion some time ago because of how...

    Yer, but you would probably have to paint it blue to prove that it's not a real one. (I assume that these may/could be interpreted as "Realistic Imitation Firearms" in the UK?)

    You can still get WW2 US web gear from the former Soviet Union without any markings at all but the problem arises with the kit with markings if it's been "messed with".

    US M36 Belt Markings?

    I have these 2 US M36 pistol belts that both came from a vendor in the former Soviet Union and therefore former "Lend-Lease" items and appear unissued. The only marking on both belts is the "US" on...
