    Restoration of an extremely rare World War 2 whisky hip flask found in a barn yard in the battlefields of Bulge. This is a Memorial Day edition to honour the fallen soldiers of World War 2 ❤

    About this Whisky hip flask
    I have never seen something like this before. It is beyond cool. I have bought it from a family who lives near Bastogne where the actual battle of Bulge took place in 1944. I got this whisky hip flask and a lot of other really cool relics with me home this time including a Medic bag and a Medic helmet (unfortunately the family has already had the helmet restored a few years back). This family has been living in Bastogne for many generations, and I was told that after the battles there was military “garbage” (war relics) left all over the place. You can still go to France, Poland, Germany, Russia, Belgium - yep most of Europe and do some awesome World War 1 and World War 2 founds. There were millions of military items left behind.

    The restoration process
    I know this is a special one, so I saved it for the US Memorial Day 2021. It was with a mix of respect and fear of not being able to restore this beautiful and rare whisky hip flask that I started this restoration. First, I Cleaned this relic with alcohol and soap and removed the WW2 Combat Medicine badge with blow torch. I was very careful not to melt the pewter and destroy the whisky flask. I soaked the badge in Russian vodka “Rocket fuel”.
    I fixed and repaired a big dent in the bottom of the hip flask. For that I used heat and gentle hammer strokes.

    I prepared the hip flask for casting by grinding and cleaning the big hole there was in this hip flask and fill it with casting sand. I filled the hole in the flask with pewter and after that I hand grinded it back to as good as it gets. I did a quick polish and attached the World War 2 Combat Medicine badge again and filled the hip flask with the VAT. 69 whisky which some of the soldiers used to drink in 1944.

    I really liked this restoration and I hope that you enjoy this video. Please subscribe if you want to see more cool upcoming projects 🙂 And DON’T FORGET TO SEE my EXTREMELY RARE WW2 D-DAY LIGHTER RESTORATION - grwww.info/loft/gI180JCx1qilaWQ/b-nteo

Era de un enfermero de guerra se nota por la insignia que contiene el frasco, y si es whisky por que el alcohol sirve como antiséptico y es uno de los que contiene más grados, además de antiséptico se ocupaba como analgésico. It was from a war nurse, it can be seen by the insignia that the bottle contains, and if it is whiskey because the alcohol serves as an antiseptic and is one of those that contains more grades, in addition to being antiseptic it is

This is an amazing work to restore an object of historical and memorial value. But it is incorrect to call it "restoration". Now the flask can be used in everyday life, but it has lost its value. Where do the items you work with come from? They were in the ground, judging by the state .. Is this the result of someone's independent archaeological research?

It's a symbol of a medical personel. Don't be fooled by the "expert field medical badge" that's just a course that has nothing to do with the actual skill of a medical soldier. But it has inherent this symbol, which is really a shame
