Here I,m am posting some of my Marine uniform and Medal collection. I have to many to post individually. But if you ask I can described it better. Some of the lighting was not the best. So some of my pictures might not be as clear. I seem to collect all the Marine divisions, I have not just started on one. Like Mes and Kurt B. So I will add as time goes by. Right now it's a lot of work just showing individual uniforms.

Outstanding collection Nick. Could you perhaps photo your Tinian WIA helmet? I've always wanted to see it.

Sure I can do that, That is a real gem. I have had that helmet a long time. The Son I talk to on the phone and he told me how his Dad was wounded. It is a real Battle helmet . I will post more photos latter on it.

One thing I can say if you like Marine alpha's , I might have what you would like to see. Most are infantry and machine gunners mortar men radio artillery ,And some tankers.A few officers I have,Those are hard to find. All of my uniforms are named,And real.

Here is some more photos onf the WIA Tinian Helmet, It is name to the marine on the inside of the ear flaps. From what his son told me he was shot in the face.I added the nape strap it was missing. I think their is blood spots all over the cover,It sure looks like it.
