WWII personal soldier equpiment - WWII museum Gdansk, Poland

Post by Delicious » Tue Nov 12, 2019 2:23 pm

Last weekend I was in the WW II museum in Gdańsk, Poland. This museum is quite new, but very popular.
You can see the war from a broad view, not only Poland, so it is interesting for foreigners as well. Most of the exhibition is multimedia information, but there are also real memorabilia - civil and military. It takes about 3 hours to see the exhibition. Everything is located underground.
I took some pictures of personal soldier equipment from different countries

German portable stove - it is almost identical to the current Italian

:lol: that was awesome




Thank you for sharing, Delicious. Those boiled sweets tins are almost always empty. I have a couple similar British rations from that era and do wonder if the boiled sweets were just Pascal Barley Sugar or perhaps twist-wrapped spherical shaped boiled sweets. May never know..

Well, your collection Steve is something like 100 times richer than this museum :)

I dunno about that, if you were walking through there for 3 hours, they probably have me beat! I was mostly just laughing at what the cool Ukrainian giant dude said. ;)

The museum itself seems like a really nice one. Will have to go down to a local one nearby that I gave a case of 74 MCIs to last year and see if they still have it. If they do, they will get a few new things and I'll report back with a picture or 2.

Case of 74 MCIs? Was that one case, or more? Anyways, wish I worked for that museum! :D
On an impossible mission to get every ration ever :D

Looking for Vintage, rare and just plain strange items

Steve, I wonder if our museum in Gdansk would be interested in getting a complete US ration set (I don't mean the whole case, just the 24h set). If you are able to sell this I will ask them
