  1. Hey everyone! This patch made its way into my collection and I really don't know much about LST 1148. I'm guessing its theater made, probably 50's? If anyone can point me in a direction as to what the purpose of the patch was, I'd really appreciate it. Also if anyone has any idea what the value of something like this would be, do tell! Thank you!
  2. Im having trouble posting an ad on the forum, so I figured this would be the next best place to make folks aware.. There is a repro PPN-1A I have constructed on eBay right now.. I decided there are a lot of people on this forum who would like to have one of these. It's a 99% correct replica, and is far cheaper than buying a real one! http://www.ebay.com/itm/Reproduction-PPN-1...2d#ht_500wt_922 Thanks! -Kyle
  3. 1940Desoto: I'm sorry our display of original, and some reproduction items has your shorts in a knot. We wouldn't dare destroy original equipment, as most reenactors do... that is why we are not reenactors. Our group is specifically a living history group, and try our best to be as authentic as possible. In all of our displays, we want the public to feel they just went back 60 years, and are standing with soldiers, marines, sailors, etc. from WWII. To do that, the bloody, dirty, torn and ragged uniforms (reproductions) are for the most part necessary. With that said, I would like to add so
  4. perfect, thank you! Oh, and I hoped you enjoyed coming to the Friends of Willy and Joe event at Fort Stevens last month. -Kyle
  5. Robin, what is the open metal first aid box in the third photo of the WW1 Helmets? I think I picked one up recently at a militaria show. Thanks
  6. Hello all, I am building a Living History display, for the 346th Engineer Regiment, in WWII. My grandfather was part of the 346th, and mentioned having constructed many bridges. I figured a Bailey Type Bridge, is way too big for a display, so I thought why not make a small section of the M1938 Light Infantry Footbridge. But I stumbled across one problem. I have no idea on how to make the pontoons. I have the Duckboards figured out, and the railing. But I need some help with the Pontoons. From what I can tell, they are big rectangles of Cork, surrounded by a metal frame. I need some better phot
