It's still out there my friends!
« on: July 30, 2018, 12:10:28 AM »
 All of this and more walked into the museum today! In addition to the German items, we received about 200 British and Canadian cap badges, buttons, and other misc insignia from WWI and WWII. We also received a British WWI rifle grenade, a WWII British bayonet, a WWI Canadian map and sewing kit, coins, post cards, tobacco tin and more.
  All came out of an attic from a local family. Their ancestor immigrated from Scotland to Canada around 1910 and served in the Canadian army in WWI. At some point he continued to collect and receive buttons and badges and then his Nephew served in WWII and sent him more items. The donors were ex hippies and appalled to find "Nazi" items in their Mother's attic after she passed a few months ago. So they donated it all to us today! Enjoy these German items.  Scott.
