Nick,

 

Looks like you had a very successful SOS!  These research projects should keep you busy for a while.  Congrats and thanks for sharing the pic!

This was my big find. 37th ID custom tailored service coat with patched shirt and 3 pairs of pants, with one set being Aussie made.

Close up of the ribbons. I also picked up a bunch of 37th pins, 2 very nice cartridge belts, a nice Carbine butt stock pouch, and a nice 1910 pack set. The pack has some mouse damage, but the pouch and tail are in good shape and will go well with my other 1910 pack. Also got a very nice 1st pattern HBT jacket...was surprised at how scarce those, the pants, and Daisy mae's were at the show as I hoping to find the latter as well. Looking forward to see what others found!

Mike, I actually found a rigger patch early this morning but they dealer wasn't to be found anywhere before we left. If I remember correctly he was only a row or two away from your tables.

Better to be dealing with a short timer than a short round. Great haul, Mike.

My KIA Marine heart is from Eniwetok, he was from Milwaukee Wisconsin. That leaves me for one more Island to the Marshall Atoll islands for Marines. My uniforms  ,Their were no Tarawa,Their where no named ones that I saw. My 6th is a WIA. My one corpsman has no division patch. The other is for the first Division,

Kurt their were a lot of uniforms their pretty cheap,compared to ebay. Marine hearts their were very few that I saw. But some nice ones.

BEST SHOW of SHOWS EVER!   I was able to pick up these items at the show and all that I can say is WOW!  I want to thank all of the individuals who I was able to purchase these items from. I had a great time seeing old friends and meeting new ones. Anyway, on to the stuff.  The first pictures is of a large OSS grouping to one man who served in Europe and in Asia.  He was the only jumping doctor of the OSS in Europe and made one jump into France and was wounded accidentally by a gunshot wound to the leg and had to be evacuated back to England.  All of his uniforms have the Jedburgh wing and have been on there forever.  His Chinese Commando insignias are just mind-blowing and some of the best out there. I have more items in the group, but I just wanted to show the highlights. The OSS Jump certificate is ultra rare.

Grant -

 

Terrific pick ups!  That OSS group is from Bay State Militaria correct?   Awesome!   Love the double jump wings.  Very nice.

 

Love to hear more and see more up close pics of the 509th stuff and, well, the other Airborne stuff as well!    

 

Thank you for sharing.

 

Best,

 

Bill K.
