    Removing cigarette smoke smell

    How about using baking soda to absorb the odor?

    Removing cigarette smoke smell

    Has anyone considered activated carbon? Unless cost is an object, this seams to be a good place for it's use - in a container as Phantom suggested. It can be reprocessed and reused IIRC. If money cannot be spent then I'd say air it in the shade with a fan for circulation but I wouldn't expect the smell to be passively absorbed away from it. No free ride I'm afraid.

    US Special Force Green beret.

    None of my issued berets has stitching on the leather piece that goes through the wool of the beret, so if the lining were removed (something I never did) the leather would come off with the liner. I never did see how the grommet holes could function as vents. Another question I have is, does anyone here know who manufactured the US made berets during the Vietnam Era, for the Army?

    WWII Sewing Machines

    There is an upholstery shop I know of that still uses two original WW2 sewing machines from the BOYT factory.

    FS/FB with OD7 M1-C chinstraps?

    Bad reproduction chinstraps with modern stitching. The liner is a euro clone with a 1980s sweatband. The tape residue is from state side training. Usually a name or number is written on the tape. Which was most likely done post Vietnam era.

    AMCRAFT Pilot Wings - WWII? Repro?

    Not a pilot wing guy, but am looking for a set of good WWII era wings, early to mid-war preferably. Are these okay?

    Stokes Mortar Question

    Those look great. I'd love to find one for my collection. I have an old range pick up that's rusted/pitted pretty bad and no fuse. I still like it. Any markings on the ignitors? The one I have only has "Winchester" on it. I'm curious if the practice versions had anything back there at all.

    Is this for a Vietnam era pilot ?

    Croc, Thank you for this lead. Ill see what I can find out.

    CBI Veteran's Medal

    I recently acquired this medal in a grouping from a CBI veteran's estate. In my internet searches, I've not found one exactly like it. According to a friend, the back indicates "Ninth Group Army Medal" has the number "57". Any ideas on what service this represents, and the approximate value? Thanks!

    Simon, the marking on the rear of left had drive vehicles was pretty standard in the British Isles, but was generally not found on vehicles which were shipped directly to France to be unloaded or assembled there. In February 1943 the US Army in England issued orders for the marking ot be painted on all vehicles, see below
