German Luftwaffe Fallschirmjäger-Messer or Air Force Paratrooper Knife gravity knife
One of the most recognizable gravity knives is the World War II Luftwaffe Fallschirmjäger-Messer or German air force paratrooper knife, which utilizes a four-inch (100mm) telescoping, gravity-propelled locking blade. First produced in 1937, the FJM was issued to German flight crews and paratroops, primarily for the purpose of cutting a trapped parachutist from his rigging in case he landed with a tangled parachute. Though not intended for use as a fighting knife, the FJM's blade could be and was used as a close combat weapon when necessary.

German soldiers Feldpost Covers with Feldpost Number 11190 (Großdeutschland)
Feldpost number: 11190 (24.3.1944. - 6.11.1944.)
3. Schwadron Panzer-Aufklärungs-Abteilung GD (Großdeutschland)

To meet the demand of the large volume of mail being sent, the German postal system soon had to adapt to the soldier’s needs. The large, complex mailing system used by the German soldiers was called the Field Post system or, as it was known in the German language, the Feldpost system. Units of soldiers with the job of administering mail service were assigned to German troops. Each German unit serving on the battle front was also assigned a five-digit postal number, which was the code for their unit. The unit mail was encoded with this system to maintain secrecy about troop movements and location in the event the mail fell into enemy hands. Apart from the unit code, the mail functioned the same as any normal mail service.

One perk of the Feldpost mail system was that soldiers were allowed to send letters and postcards free of charge.

They provide an interesting story from one of the world’s largest conflicts, presenting a unique point of view.

Congratulations on the deer! I always enjoy seeing your discoveries. That Walther 1938 signal pistol was in pretty good shape. Is it made of aluminum?

Amazing finds. It's really nice that you are getting some of these great relics out of the ground before they become nothing but rust. It's also got to be a little spooky handling that...doubt many of those pieces were dropped during quiet times.
