    WW2 paratrooper folder....

    I know it's ended, but I just thought you chaps would be interested. Oh, it's the second one I've seen in two weeks.

    Wow - that sold for a lot of money. Does that reflect their real value or just one off Ebay madness? (I do despair at the over-enthusiasm with which some people collect war memorabilia...)

    IIRC, at a general auction I attended last year a foldable BSA airborne bicycle (admittedly in need of restoration) went for 120. This struck me as a bit of a bargain, but I was unfortunately there to bid on ceramics!

    For those that are interested, many Allied service personnel in WW2 found them an annoying encumbrance...
