Hello Italian knowing people.

I am stumped on an item, does anyone know of anywhere to get a Bersaglieri plume holder to use on an M33? I do not mind about it being pucker and original, a repro or postwar one would be fine (if such things exists), it is the one bit which is bamboozling me. Or is it a case of 'keep eye on ebay' and hope?

grazie

It's a case of the latter I am afraid. For some reason they are gold dust at the moment, including the Alpini version. Post war ones indeed exist but still they are difficult to come by. Keep hitting ebay it. One should come up but be prepared for a bidding war. In the mean time I will prime my contacts for one.

Its a Tent! Its a Poncho! Its a Ground Sheet! Its a Camouflage against the enemy. My word, its even a waterproof sleeping bag! It is not, however, German.

M33 Elmetto. Good against shrapnel. Great for grinding coffee. For that superb sweat encrusted taste.[/size]

Thank you.

And curses. Of all the things to deny a man the ability to attach delightful feathers to my helmet ranks amongst the most unkind :cry: . I will keep up my occasional hunt.
