Got Mittens – Dedicated to the history and collecting of the German military belt buckle from 1847-1945.
Why Got Mittens? During WW1, sometimes the German trenches and British trenches were so close together that they could shout to each other. Private Wild Readman of the Royal Northumberland Fusiliers and his friends heard the Germans shouting “Gott mit uns!” (God with us). Wilf and his friends put their gloves on the end of their rifles, waving them over the top of their trench shouting back, “We’ve got mittens too!”
What we do? Discuss military history and German belt buckles, research, share images. We also buy, sell and trade buckles.
