White Bed/Cot Straps For Paratroopers
Posted 08 February 2007 - 01:39 PM
The paratroopers found a much better option attached to their beds/cots, in the form of two white straps. They are seen in many Normandy photos.
These white straps have now all, but dissappeared. They are a vital part for a Normandy mannequin display. All you now see on ebay and at fairs are beds/cots, with the straps removed.
I was in the DMC Museum in Normandy last week. Last summer, they had a box full of them and last week they only had 3 (I bought two of them).
If you find a bed/cot with the white straps on buy it at once!!!

If they are the early cots with the white straps, then buy a few and sell them on ebay.
well that is interesting, there are cots almost in any direction that you could throw a rock at where I live.Is there a market for these things?
