this is maybe a little OT, but interesting anyway: accidentally, I discovered Walther's French patent No 901,082. What makes this patent special, are the DATES:

Application date: January 11, 1944
Day of grant: October 23, 1944 (long after the Germans left Paris)
Day of publication: July 17, 1945 .

This patent application claimed priority date of a parallel German patent application of January 12, 1943. my French isn't the best – but from the drawings, it seems, it deals with a special cocking mechanism for a PPK and Olympia.

I just find it interesting, when this patent was published….
