Many are from Normandy vacations, some from the battle of the bulge anniversaries.
The 1st inf div is from the museum in France.

No way! that's great I've always wanted to get my copy of Band of Brothers signed by him, but he won't accept or sign any more unless you're a close friend, too bad I'm not. But that is awesome

1. US Marine Corps Uniforms 1912-1940 (Jim Moran)
Jim Moran's second book on USMC uniforms (softcover). I bought this at the War & Peace Show in Beltring. The book was already signed by the author.

Jim Moran's first book on USMC uniforms (hardcover). I bought this book at the War & Peace Show in Beltring from the author himself. Jim was attending the show with his wife and their daughter Tara.

This is a book of a native American who served as a Marine in the Vietnam War. I bought this book from the author who was selling them at the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, DC.

This is a story in itself. This book was published in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks by a guy who called himself Tom Carew. In this autobiographic book he describes his adventures as a member of the British SAS with the mujehadeen during the Afghan-Russian war in the 1980's. He even appeared on the BBC to talk about his book. Later it turned out that he never served with the SAS. (see http://www.guardian....oks.september11).
I knew the author in person (also under an alias) years before he wrote this book. As you can see, he signed with both "Tom Carew" and "Phil", the latter being the first name I used to know him by.
Unfortunately "Tom Carew" was found dead earlier this year.

Many years ago, I contacted a few well known WWII vets and asked for their autograph. Here is one of the better known vets that I contacted, General James M. Gavin.

I attended many 101st and 82nd reunions, here in Belgium, in holland and in France.
Several vets have signed my books twice, at an interval of 15 to 20 years.
I have also acquired WWI Divisionnal histories with dramatic signatures and annotations.
Please, have a look ang give ly your impressions.
