Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgIn order to fit my MG34 onto the dreibein I just obtained, I needed the adapter. These are quite expensive for what they are so in the meantime I hooked a shabby ground dug one that I could use for display while I find a not-stupidly-priced example.

Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgSomething I have been looking for for ages, this is the Anti Aircraft Tripod or Dreibein that was used to convert the MG34 for light flak use. usually the wooden reinforcements are long gone but this one still has them as well as being unit marked for the 56th Light Flak Company, 273rd Army Flak Battalion. This makes my MG34 much easier to display and complements the Lafette I found for my MG42.

Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgThis is the Hitler Youth patch worn by those boys who worked on the Flak units during WW2. Their job must have been particularly terrifying as they were required to be out in the open during the bomber raids, working the searchlights or assisting with the guns. On the other hand, fuck the little Nazi shitzen.
