Dad's P.38 German Pistol-would like info.
Dad brought back a souvenir P.38 to the US in 1945. I'd like to know about it. Here are the markings: Right side - WaA135 with 3 wing airplane stamp above, then to the right a 4 wing aircraft with eagle head and a swastika below, then to the right a 2 wing plane with WaA135 below. Looks like a 637 and some mark underneath under the end of the barrel. Left side markings: P.38 then to the right SVW with 45 underneath, then to the right 532f (appears to be the serial number repeated near the trigger.) To the right is another WaA135 with a 3 wing plane above. It also has the black leather holster and one clip still containing bullets with another WaA135 and 3 wing plane marking on back, P.38 v with U underneath on the side. He locked it up after the war and it hasn't been touched until now, after his death. He was in the Army in the Central Europe and Rhineland campaigns between 1943 until after VE day in 1945, returning to the US. Thanks for any information
