    WW1 finds and discoveries

    Did find this nice picture. It was taken here in the collery housing estate in the Netherlands at 500 meters from my house. In WW1 they had the estate surrounded with barbed wire and they interned fled Belgian soldiers in there. I assumed first that the car was a Dutch army Spijker. But as the officer turned out to be Belgian. We started searching and the car is an Belgian build Germain. So it even might be a Belgian staff car... I think i should investigiate the story a bit further.

    Tin toy Jeep made in Holland in 1945

    In 1944 they made these kind of cast iron plaques for the liberation of maastricht, that were offered to allied soldiers it seems.

    Tin toy Jeep made in Holland in 1945

    Yes we are getting somewhere. Fonderie Millen must be it. They were located in Maastricht but since 1941 also in Stein. There is also a logo FM in a circle stamped on the bottom of the jeep. On the net i did find pictures 2 cast iron models, lots of aluminium ones in several colours and one in brass.

    Tin toy Jeep made in Holland in 1945

    Did find another 1945/46 jeep toy made in Holland. The company named "Victory Toys". I have found them on the web in cast iron, aluminium and brass. Mine is in aluminium wheels and all, you still see vague traces of the star on the bonnet. The underside has still some olive green paint. Hood, sparewheel and jerrycan are missing. Did not find the firm tough. I can imagine it was in the north of our province as there are/where several foundries .
