Ammunition history: NWM items


#1

I posted these on the Dutch NVBMB forum and don’t remember if I ever discussed them here. They are ammunition history related, but not ammunition. Apologies if they are deemed inappropriate here.

A few years ago I was able to purchase part of the uniform set of one of the NWM (‘de Kruithoorn’) weapons and ammunition factory guards. They were ordered and delivered in 1991, a few years before the bankruptcy of the company. The cap and lapels carry the powder horn logo, (Kruithoorn is Dutch for ‘powder horn’).
