Another one showing the 2nd 1-0 vest and black fatigues, thank God Owen and Paul came over, it gave me a reason to spend two days cleaning up, organizing and redressing 4 of the maniquinns, before that, it looked like a bomb went off in there, crap everywhere on the floor, half dressed figures, nothing on the walls!!
what a mess!!

Thanks buddy, the photos you provided over e-mail were a great start! I'm reading the passage on Laos in Stanton's US Special Forces in Southeast Asia, and also US Army Special Forces 1961-1971 (Centre for Mil History) which have both been very informative.

Where's the best place to get good repro (or original... ;)) SF insignia? Full color by the way!

Will

Hi All
Myself and English Paul went to Pee Wees house and had a great time !!!!
Hangover is a small word but in reality it can thump hard .
Paul and myself hit Jumbos Clown room the night before and only got to bed at dawn before going to see the other paul at nine in the morning via breakfast which did not put a dent in the pain that was to come in the afternoon .
After Kaiser bills and a bit of lunch we went back to LA from San Demas and went to the LA police museum only to see it close before our faces .
There is a display of the North Hollywood Bank heist including all the weapons , uniforms , bank glass and tribute to all the officers from that tragic day .
Meeeting other collectors from other parts of the world is really cool and Paul Bishop is one of those guys that makes the hobby a fruitfull experience .
I am sure I can speak for myself and Paul M and say we both had a great couple of days !!!!
But painfull in the head dept .
owen


I second all of the above and add thanks for the hospitality... and I have a new fave bar.

And all again in January...

Trey Moore makes some nice repo ealry cut edge SF SSI's but real ones are still available for 35-45 dollars, the hard part is getting the "Scull & Harp" DI those get a little pricey

hope this helps
