A pre war tellerform cap converted by the officer into the crusher style. A very large ‘58½’ stamped sized cap constructed from the ribbed material commonly encountered in the pre war tellerform caps, fitted with a very nice set of Bevo woven officers silver wire eagle and cockade. The front peak is of the standard form but of a softer texture, which enables it to be crushed to a virtual flat form. No moth damage to the cap, white piped overall. Evidence of where cap cords were once fitted and subsequently removed. Brown leather sweatband all intact and supple with a multiplicity of unit markings of Infantry Regiment 125 plus a maker’s stamp and date code of ‘38’to the interior. A very good example of a standard tellerform cap that has been converted by the wearer into a crusher.
A very good model 34 stick grenade, wood haft excellent, maker coded with a full date of ‘1943’, complete with its base cap and its internal porcelain ball pull and also complete with its original shrapnel ring, the head has all its original paint with some rust bleed through from the steel below the paint. This item cannot be shipped outside the UK.

A very nice set of the classic 7 x 50 heavy body Zeiss binoculars used primarily by submariners. The optics absolutely perfect, the original battleship grey green paint to the main body with slight rubbing but virtually intact, the rubber coverings for the lenses and for the rear of the frame all perfect with no cracks. On lifting the rubber covering the markings of ‘7 x 50 BLC’ instrument number ‘57024’ clearly impressed into the frame. The neck strap is a replacement. These are a most superb set.
