  1. Thank you so much for sharing that! It has been a while, but I will try to find this bag and send you some photos. It's great to hear from a family member of someone who served on this ship.
  2. I love the look of industrial steel blueprint flat files, but I really need something lighter weight and easier to move for maps, posters, etc. Has anybody found a good system for this? Thanks
  3. Thanks so much! Very helpful
  4. Thanks! Sorry to hear about your wife. I've been on a long journey trying to find answers too. Hoping this is either the issue or I can check it off the list too.
  5. Yeah, I have a dehumidifier and keep our place under 50% all year. We're having health issues that make us suspect mold. No visible mold or anything at this point. Just trying to be proactive. Thanks!
  6. Is it safe to store clothing, blankets, etc. in a sealed bag or bin with some silica packs? Just worried about moisture, but I need to seal them because I have some items with mold. Thanks
  7. Stupid question, but is there a correct way that the E Tool is supposed to go into the plastic carrying case? (handle towards front flap or shovel head towards front flap) Just curious. Thanks
  8. Was there a case made specifically for the Trench gun? If not, what cases were used by the military?
  9. Thanks. It also says "phosphorus" instead of "phosphorescent" which is strange. Can't find any examples that they make a specific military and commercial version
  10. Just bought a used Cammenga Phosphorus compassions for $15. Honestly didn't look closely at the photos and assumed it was the Model 27. However, it does not say Model 27. Photo attached of what it looks like. What are the differences between these two compasses?
  11. Just curious how/where the WWII shotgun pouch was attached, especially when used with a trench gun. Can't find any photos. Thanks
  12. Just bought two new old stock Woodland Camo Poncho Liners (Liner, Wet Weather Poncho) to use for camping blankets. I was just curious if these are treated with any kind of chemical or if they are just nylon/poly. I know the military treated some things with anti-mildew or other chemicals. Thanks!
  13. I have a few old holsters that really need to be treated. What is the safest way to do this? Looking ideally for something natural and maybe traditional (how soldiers may have treated their holsters in WWII) Would neatsfoot oil be a good option? Open to any input. Thanks!
  14. Wow. Where did you get one for $20?
