Paul,

On the mannequin that is dressed with tigers, bar belt, and helmet....can you tell me if that is a "toe-popper" resting on one of the bar pouches? If so, is it original or is it a repaint? Those are tough to find.
Cheers.

Paul, the two men in the photograph in your #25 post are John Shore and Lynn Black. Both were on RT Idaho with John "Tilt" Meyer.

Hey Andrei
yes I remember you mentioning that before, didnt you own a Capt Sweeny jacket or shirt at one time?? I think Mike Tucker may have had a piece or two of his also, would love to find the beret to go with the jacket,
thanks

Andy got the beret that is xeroxed in one old issue of the very good VICN paper published by Clem Kelly.
BTW if someone here has some news of Clem.
I will try to find the issue this WE.

Haven't seen Andy and Les for quite a few years. Andy was a good bloke, I think that last time I saw him was at OVMS in Kentucky in 2000 or 2001. Bob was there too.

Hi Paul,

Come to think of something here, you had a great looking piece a few years back that was for sale.
We had our ideas of it being a CIDG / SF / Advisors piece....but weren't sure.
I am referring to that cool beogam shirt you had, which was modified with a full length zip.
I am hoping you recall this, so your not wondering how the heck I do! Maybe my memory is too good
with this stuff! LOL...
Just thought of it, and wanted to see if you ever did find out more about it.
I remember wanting to purchase it, but you and I were stumped about it.
Cheers.
Duffy

I think Andy is selling on Ebay under a couple of different names now. I remember running into him at Camden all the time and at the Great Western. For a long time he was supplying all the remake squadron patches for Gary Eastman's company. I think I heard someplace he has a shop at Normandy now.
Les Martin on the other hand I speak to frequently still. He came over for a SOS a couple of years ago, and just recently got back into the militaria business. He is mostly doing really early English pistols & swords now.

Thanks,
I was lucky enough to pick that up for a decent price a few years ago along with the CISO set of NVA and a bunch of tiger boonies and some other high speed stuff when a friend dumped his entire SOG/SF collection in order to buy a house and chase woman! luckily I had taken a loan out against my home a good idea then, now Im rethinking that that idea, but I did get some cool stuff including a 2nd SOG 1-0 vest, sog black boonie and a few other goodies,
:)

Paul,

You are fortunate to own a Swedish K, I have been on the hunt for one here forever!
I must have asked every gun collector here! LOL....
I've wanted a deactivated one for quite some time now....wishful thinking though!
Dewatts are around here, but it depends what a person is looking for.
For WW2 Canadian and British collectors, there is lot's to choose from, but for WW2 U.S and up....
it can be difficult.
There is a fella in another province here, who sells a huge number of dewatts.....once in a while,
he puts the odd rare piece on, but mainly just the norm.
I tried to do some research on the exact Uzi's that SOG had in their inventories, so far....I have received
information, on that they were IMI Folding stock versions.
The reason I was curious, as this is one of the rare pieces that this place has here, they want a pretty penny
for it....but it is original.
Up to date, I have found the earlier version containing the wooden stock....but I haven't heard anything regarding SOG using that type, just the folding one.
Yours is a dummy gun, right? With a dummy receiver?
I have seen a variation of dummy guns, in the U.S.....but never a Swedish K.
Make sure and cherish that one! Hang on to it forever!
The closet I have come here to an extremely exotic weapon, of very uncommon nature, was a S&W M76.
It hasn't moved....I don't think there are as many collectors of the sort, as there would be of it in the states.
Anyhow....nice piece once again.
Cheers,
Duffy
