Found another Cattaraugus 225Q knife in poor condition rust wise in the original sheath but at 5 dollars I couldn't put it down.  It cleaned up pretty well with only a little pitting on the blade.

I found a nice 8 x 10 photo of a group of US Army Air Corp soldiers who all seem to have signed the back.

I've got a question about this multicam foul weather jacket made by Tru-Spec.  It was 25 dollars but is it a commercial piece or military.  It says it was assembled in Honduras from US material.

I picked up this training gas mask with case that is pretty mint for 10 dollars.  I've got a question about this haversack.  There are no markings and the side snap is kind of flimsy so I was wondering if this was a reproduction?

You are right, the soft armor helmet is the liner of a combat vehicle crewman (CVC) helmet, it is attatched to the hell by press studs.

I bought this I'm guessing Air Force jet helmet for 25 dollars.  I know nothing about it and there are no names or markings.  The seller told me that he got it at Goodwill in Stockton, California.

The last thing I found I got off Craig's List instead of the flea market.  It is a WW2 holster marked "WALSH 44" for 15 dollars.

Many thanks for the confirmation.

What you have is a Combat Vehicle Crewman (CVC) Helmet - common to all Armored Vehicles in U.S. inventory, to include Strykers; all you are missing is the Kevlar outer shell, which comes in three sizes (S, M, L) - this model CVC is made by Bose & has exceptional noise-cancelling abilities compared to previous CVCs - attached photo is of my "modified" CVC when I was 1SG for a Stryker Infantry Company at Fort Bliss with the 1st Armored Division

The last CVC helmet has a Star Wars design on it.COOL!

 

Star Wars: The Rebel Alliance

Star Warsuniverse nerdy stuff:The Alliance Starbird, also known asThe Phoenix, was the insignia of theAlliance to Restore the Republic. It adorned the flight helmets of a number of Rebel pilots during the Galactic Civil War and was based on the Marek family crest to honorGalen Marek, the former apprentice toDarth Vader.
rebel-alliance-logo-luke-helmet-starwars
The Starbird represents the Alliance rising from the Galactic Empire that it swore to topple. The logo was first seen in the original Star Wars movie, most notably on X-wing fighter pilot helmets (Y-wing pilots had different versions) including, of course, that ofLuke Skywalker.

The flight helmet is a Navy/USMC APH-6B with an MS22001 oxygen mask. I would have given 8 times what you paid for it. Great score!
