Hello all!

My name is Duncan and I am 13 years old and have been collecting for about a year. My collection includes helmets and field gear. I focus on post WWII because my limited income. I like to collect helmets the most and just recently I have expanded to field gear. I own a full set of Vietnam web gear and a full set of Alice, desert storm, Grenada, whatever you want to call it. I own 4 helmets so far, a Vietnam M1, a Korea M1, another Korea M1 shell only, and a PASGT helmet that is set up as a parachutists helemt. I also like soft caps. I have 2 boonies, a chocolate chip and a 3 color desert one. I have 2 NWU type I 8 pointed covers, woodland and desert marpat covers and a repro WWII crusher cap that I got as a gift. Of course I have some ammo cans too, a 30 and 50 cal. I also have a flight suit and a LBV. I look forward to exploring the forum more it has already helped me with tons of research and revelations. This forum has a great atmosphere and great people on it and I'm glad I get to be a part of it!

Good day,
-Duncan

Thank you all for the warm welcome!

 

And sundance, my mom and dad are both retired Navy Chiefs, when I was little I used to go into my dad's mancave and look at all his gear that he managed to keep and I may or may not have 'borrowed' his Bianchi M12 holster and his Fulton angle head flashlight. That's how I got started and I didn't really get serious into collecting until I was 11 when I bought my first M1 helmet. Which actually turned out to be an Austrian Euro clone with a MICH BDU/DCU cover and a mint condition P64 liner for $40. So I think it was worth it just for the mint liner which I found the date to be 1964.
