I have attached a picture to show some of what I call the "Relics of the Reich" These are all items that have turned up over the years and are frankly past it but still make an interesting display when put together. The MG.34 was dredged up out of St.Helier harbour here in Jersey in the 1960’s. I remember it being on display in St.Peters Bunker Museum here on the Island back when I was 7 years old. I was impressed with it then and even more so now it mine and on display in my museum (The Channel Islands Military Museum, St.Ouen). Having tried to collect the best condition of everything I can its strange now how I being lured back to the sort of thing I started collecting when I started out.
All the best from Jersey,
I have had this eagle for just over 30 years and came from the same old British Major from whom I bought a great deal of items from the Reichskanzlei. I don’t for one minute think this came from there but it was amongst all of the items I got from him.
I was in my museum this morning and changing a few display cabinets around and thought I’d get a few shots of this bird whilst I could get at it. I knew it had an oval makers stamp on the reverse but had totally forgotten there were 3 of them.
You may also notice the background to the eagle is in fact the tiled floor of my German bunker. The crew room still has all of the original floor tiles in place.
Anyway hope you like my eagle.
All the best from Jersey
