Examples
of a GSTP watch Leonidas Pocket WatchCredit: *Military Timepieces 1890-1990″ by Z.M.
Wesolowski.
In 1939, with war on the
horizon, the British War Departmentrealized they required time pieces. With no plans and
knowing that a shortage of watches would surely occur, they quickly purchased watches from
numerous Swiss watch makers and retailers.Each watch had to have 15 jewels, luminous black
or white dial, and subsidiary seconds dial. Most were snap backs though there were higher
grades with screw backs. Most of these pocket watches were titled “General
Service” time pieces and classified as “Temporary Pattern”. Thus they were
stamped “GSTP”. These GSTP watches would become the work horse of the military.
From Radio operators to drivers, they fulfilled the requirements of keeping time through
out the war. Note: at the conclusion of the hostilities, most of the watches purchased by
the various Government Buyers were destroyed due to a deal with suppliers. The suppliers
had sold these watches at a discount and they did not want the market flooded at the wars
conclusion with “surplus military watches”.

THE GERMAN NAVY (Kriegsmarine) UTILIZED
LEONIDAS ARTILLERY TIMERS.

 

HEUER ACQUIRED THE “LEONIDAS”
BRAND IN THE EARLY 1960′ AND MARKETED WATCHES UNDER THE “Heuer-Leonidas” NAME.

 

  OONE OF THE DESIGNED THAT HEUER ACQUIRED FROM LEONIDAS WAS
THE “Bundeswehr” CHRONOGRAPH USED BY THE GERMAN AIR FORCE.

 

MANY OF THE LEONIDAS WATCHES MADE FOR
THE GERMANS WERE MADE IN THE 1930′.

 

WITH THE OUT BREAK OF WAR IN ENGLAND,
THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT, SEEKING QUALITY WATCHES, INVESTED IN LEONIDAS POCKET WATCHES. THEY
WERE MAINLY UTILIZED AS “DECK WATCHES”

ENGLAND FOREVER

 

FRENCH SILK 1914-1918 POST CARD

 

“Monty” WAS SERIOUSLY WOUNDED IN WWI & I WANTED TO
ADD A GREAT WWI ITEM THAT WOULD IDENTIFY WITH THIS FACT.   The First World War began
in August 1914 and Montgomery moved to France with his regiment that month. He saw service
during the retreat from Mons, during which half his battalion was destroyed. At Méteren,
near the Belgian border at Bailleul on 13 October 1914, during an Allied
counter-offensive, he was shot through the right lung by a sniper and was injured
seriously enough for his grave to be dug in preparation for his death. A Platoon sergeant
came to assist him but was killed. He fell on Montgomery. The German sniper fired at him
until sunset. The body of the sergeant protected Montgomery and took most of the enemy
fire. Montgomery was hit once more though, in the knee. He was awarded the Distinguished
Service Order for gallant leadership.    

 

.Somme, Arras, and Passchendaele. During this time he came under
IX Corps, part of General Sir Herbert Plumer’s Second Army. Through his training,
rehearsal, and integration of the infantry with artillery and engineers, the troops of
Plumer’s Second Army were able to achieve their objectives efficiently and without
unnecessary casualties. Montgomery served at the battles of the Lys and Chemin-des-Dames
before finishing the war as General Staff Officer 1 and effectively chief of staff of the
47th (2nd London) Division, with the temporary rank of lieutenant-colonel. A photograph
from October 1918 shows the then unknown Lt.-Col. Montgomery standing in front of Winston
Churchill (Minister of Munitions) at the victory parade at Lille.

Field Marshal Bernard Law
Montgomery, 1st Viscount Montgomery of Alamein, KG, GCB, DSO, PC (17 November 1887 –
24 March 1976), often referred to as “Monty”, was a British Army officer. He saw
action in World War I, when he was seriously wounded, and during World War II he commanded
the 8th Army from August 1942 in the Western Desert until the final Allied victory in
Tunisia. This command included the Battle of El Alamein, a major turning point in the
Western Desert Campaign. After which Montgomery was knighted and promoted to full general.
He was later a prominent commander in Italy and North-West Europe, where he was in command
of all Allied ground forces during Operation Overlord until after the Battle of Normandy
when he continued command of the 21st Army Group. On 4 May 1945 he took the German
surrender at Luneburg Heath in northern Germany. After the War he became
Commander-in-Chief of the British Forces of Occupation in Germany and then Chief of the
Imperial General Staff.

Erwin Johannes Eugen Rommel
(15 November 1891 – 14 October 1944), popularly known as the Desert Fox was a famous
German Field Marshal of World War II. He was a highly decorated officer in World War I,
and was awarded the Pour le Mérite for his exploits on the Italian front. In World War
II, he further distinguished himself as the commander of the 7th Panzer Division during
the 1940 invasion of France. However, it was his leadership of German and Italian forces
in the North African campaign that established the legend of the Desert Fox. He is
considered to have been one of the most skilled commanders of desert warfare in the war.
He later commanded the German forces opposing the Allied cross-channel invasion in
Normandy. As one of the few generals who consistently fought the Western Allies (he was
never assigned to t he Eastern Front), Rommel is regarded as having been a humane and
professional officer. His Afrikakorps was never accused of war crimes. Soldiers captured
during his Africa campaign were reported to have been treated humanely. Furthermore, he
ignored orders to kill captured commandos, Jewish soldiers and civilians in all theaters
of his command.Late in the war, Rommel was linked to the conspiracy to kill Adolf Hitler.
Due to his wide renown, Hitler chose to eliminate him quietly; in trade for the protection
of his family, Rommel agreed to commit suicide.

ORIGINAL WWII PHOTO OF FIELD MARSHALL MONTGOMERY IN ENGLAND

 

[with noted Scholar of Christ
Church, Oxford, H.R. Trevor-Roper “Men & Events”]

Bernard Montgomery was born in 1887. In
1908 at the age of 21, he was commissioned in the Royal Warwickshire Regiment and served
on the Western Front during World War One. Eventually, with command posts in Britain and
in India, by 1938 he was promoted to the rank of major-general.

 

Montgomery was given the command of the Third Division (BEF) that
was part of the British Expeditionary Force in World War Two that withstould the might of
the Wehrmacht’s ‘Blitzkrieg’ and had to be evacuated at Dunkirk.. After the failure
of the first battle at El Alamein, Montgomery was given command of the Eighth Army in
North Africa and he drove his army to victory at El Alamein and turned the tide of the war
in Africa. In fact, this was the first defeat of the Germans and, with US Forces on the
ground, the Germans could only retreat and quit North Africa in 1943. At D-Day, Montgomery
commanded the British and Canadian units at Normandy. On September 1st 1944, Montgomery
was promoted to field marshall, the highest rank he could reach in the British Army.

Antwerp in Belgium. The 21st Group was involved in the Battle of the Bulge –
Germany’s ill-fated attempt to push back the Allies.

1945 and he accepted the formal surrender of the German military at Luneburg Heath on May

WWII DISNEY DESIGNED RAF FLIGHT PATCH

 

When Walt Disney was a young American ambulance driver in France
during World War I, he was exposed to a new form art that would be titled “nose
art”. Nose Art was comic character painting on the cowls of military trucks and the
sides of military airplanes. Nose Art had an immense morale boosting effect among the
troops. Disney returned to the United States in 1918 and became the premier cartoonist of
the era. In 1939, the a U.S. Naval unit made a request of Disney, they asked if he would
draw up a mascot to paint on one of their new ships. Disney produced a “Bumble Bee in
a Sailor’s Hat, wearing Boxing Gloves”. The Naval unit involved was so pleased with
the design they adopted it the “Bumble Bee in a Sailor’s Hat, wearing Boxing
Gloves” as their unit insignia and began painting it on their jackets and other
vehicles. It was not long before the entire armed forces began requesting Disney’s
creations for their mascot With the help of six of his top artists, Disney attempted to
fill the growing demand for unit mascots. The first two mascots produced by Disney in WWII
went to the “Eagle Squadron” of the Royal Air Force, a unit of American
volunteers flying for the British prior to American involvement in the war, and to the
famed “Flying Tigers”, another volunteer force operating out of China. By the
time of US involvement in WWII, while Disney and his staff were creating new designs,
Warner Bros. joined in.. While Donald Duck was the most popular amongst Disney characters,
Warner Brothers called up both Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny. Besides the use of then known
popular cartoon characters, every creature that could come to mind was utilized including
nearly 150 new dog and cat creations. Their creations swam, crawled, slithered, flew, and
were featured just about in every conceivable fashion. NOTE: A) Mickey Mouse was a
consensus objector because Disney did not want to establish Mickey with war B) The
personal insignia of German Luftwaffe ace Adolf Galland was Mickey Mouse With both Disney
and Warner Brothers at the helm, nearly every unit in the armed forces was sporting either
a cartoon mascot or skulls, grim reapers, devils and other sinister mascots on jackets,
military equipment, uniforms, tanks, planes, boats, jeeps, and even dinner plates &
stationary were adorned with proud unit mascots. By 1945 the Disney group & Warner
Bros. had created over 1,800 Mascot Logos Though some “field made” variants were
created, most authentic squadron patches were embroidered on “Chenille”, hand
painted or decal on leather or hand painted/silk-screened on canvas.
