  1. This came in with an 1889 German sword this week, so I am not certain of its origin but don't think its German... The only marking is the "beehive" and there is no scabbard. Thanks for any help in the right direction and please delete if certain that its not US. Scott
  2. Thank you, glad you enjoyed it. Scott
  3. I won't be back to the museum until Friday, I will try to remember. Scott
  4. Received this at the Michigan Military Heritage Museum. Named to Mary J Hines. Sadly, no hat... Just jacket and skirt. Scott
  5. Here is an interesting take on the design. This is at the Michigan Military Heritage Museum in Grass Lake. Enjoy! Scott
  6. Are you certain that the whites are not WWI? While not always the case, I generally associate the loop under the neck with WWI uniforms. I believe the Navy discontinued them in 1918 if I am not mistaken. Either way, great uniforms! Scott
  7. Glad you found it helpful, they are great items and thanks for sharing them! Scott
  8. So, the green wings are not necessarily jump wings in the traditional sense. In the Saddam "Republic" era Iraqi Army, Special Forces units were battalion size and made up whole brigades. The wings denote service in one of these brigades and not jump qualification, though it could indeed be that he was jump qualified, just not likely by 91... The patch with the eagle is for the 'Thunder Troops" which again, is basically the insignia for one of these units. Think of them as the guys that would lead an attack, not really the guys who might insert on a LRS mission or other special operator.
  9. I will give it a go. Christmas morning near Baghdad with a remote team 2003, it was basically uncharted territory for all in theater as everyone expected big trouble from the rising insurgency as well as from the Saddam era holdouts, also remember it had only been 11 days since "we got him". Even though we were in a remote setting (6 team members) a stand to was ordered from 0400-0700 and I was the Section Sergeant at that time. I not only had to do the stand to with the team where I lived, I had to get to my other teams which were scattered from Fallujah to the Northern pa
  10. Thanks so much Eric, I will be back at the museum Wed and try to get some close ups without the shadows. Scott
  11. No worries on the replica moniker though I should point out that Ford made no ambulances in 1917. All were merely chassis and the "box" was added by the troops in France when the frames arrived. In 1918 Ford standardized and ambulance that was slightly larger and factory built. Scott
  12. Here is one at my museum. Its from another topic here on the forum. The vet changed the chinstrap in the 80s to do the welcome home parades. Otherwise its a fs/sb helmet with his name on it and the liner as well as another name on the shell. The cover was left loose by me as it was starting to tear through. Sadly, we will not tell his story as he is currently incarcerated. Scott
  13. Most museums use Past Perfect software, it is expensive but does everything that you could ever need to include photos, appraisal, location, condition, donor, temporary location, history, etc... Otherwise, just do what works for you and your family. Scott
  14. As promised some more of the ambulance as we do more of the detail work. Scott
