The "black thing" is a T-32 microphone. And those aren't BAR spare parts boxes, but Signal Corps tool kits for inspectors.

Still absolutely breath taking robin! Are you anywhere near finished now? How do you feel now everything (I'm guessing?) is out and displayed? The CS-35 pouch is great by the way, never seen one before!

All the best,

Will

I have never seen a collection as extensive as yours. It's absolutely amazing. You should make a video of a guided tour around the whole building and put it on youtube. :)

In these days the CS35 web pouch appears often on french ebay. I think french Army used them as well a lot of other late WWII US stuff.

Robin, You have a very nice collection. You have out done yourself. I know you are a busy man. But in the chance you have time I am sure you have a TBY radio. I would like to see photos of the radio and etc.. I am very interested in the Pack/case it goes in. Thanks, Market garden

He really should consider adding to his collection. Seriously, he who dies with the most militaria stuff, wins.

Robin wins.
