  1. That’s what I was wondering as well. Curious if these were a pre raid private purchase or some sort of issued knife?
  2. So I was watching a video of Raiders getting off the sub post the Makin island raid and I noticed these 2 knives (see attached photo sorry about the quality but it’s the best screen grab I could get) in the same frame and was curious if anyone could possibly help me ID them? I am thinking they are a Western variant but I am obviously unsure. Any help is appreciated.
  3. That would be great thank you!
  4. Thank you so much Kris!! Now to find one..
  5. That M3 looks very legit! Do you plan to leave it as is or restore it?
  6. That's a great find!!! Flea Markets can sometimes be pots of gold for hidden treasures where people have no idea what they actually have.
  7. Thats a beautiful WWII example! Great find..
  8. Here is an interesting article that discusses some of the issues that were glossed over in the boards response https://baltimorepostexaminer.com/battle-of-the-bulge-cancellation-reenactors-have-nobody-to-blame-but-themselves/2018/07/16
  9. Here is the letter from the WWIIHA Board of Trustees : The following is the statement about the cancellation by Association Chairman Larry Mihlon: “As Chairman of the WWIIHA Board of Trustees, it is my unfortunate duty to make the following announcement. Members of the reenacting and living history community: It is with deep regret that we announce that the annual Battle of the Bulge event at Fort Indiantown Gap has been cancelled indefinitely. Members of the Board of Trustees of the World War II Historical Association have put countless hours into addressing the situations that ha
  10. From what I understood it was the guard who had the issue with the event not the reserves..
  11. I think between the mortar incident as well as finding replica ordinance in the field which requires them to call EOD the command had enough of hosting the event which is a shame as the flea market alone was worth the trip..
  12. Got to go see it last weekend and I loved it! Deffently sparked an interest in Great war for me..
  13. Those are some amazing blades! Curious is that paint on the handle of that #18? If so do you know anything about his gear? I am doing some research on the use of paint and blanco to camouflage gear by Raiders. Thanks
  14. Hope this is the right location: Does anyone know the proper nomenclature for the runner boats that WWII Marine Raiders used? Also any information on the motor would be welcome.
  15. I would also be interested in this information as I have read some conflicting opinions and I would love to have something substantiated with evidence.
  16. Not trying to derail the thread but I am curious does anyone know the proper nomenclature for the rubber boats used by raiders as seen in the previous pics?
  17. I love this show! I have made the drive from Myrtle Beach for the last few years and I have never left disapointed.
  18. In Fayetteville Epic Militaria is always worth a look as is Old Sarge's..
  19. Its long dead and its unfortunate that someone hasn’t created another large scale winter event to take its place..
  20. I would have to agree with the PAVN/NVA ruck as the materials, pocket ties and the 3 outer pocket configuration is pretty indicative to those packs although they did also have a 2 external pocket pack but it also had ties.
  21. That was a common issue with the older uniforms as they had an unstable dye lot. From what I understand if you wash it the color corrects itself ..
  22. Wow thats a bast from the past! I havent heard that name in years! I agree that the above pouches dont appear to be Herbs work and with the plethora of garrage sewers back in the day I would be hesitatnt to guess who made these. Funny speaking of garrage sewers I found my old Jimmy Russell made jumpsuit in a bin the other day.. To think that was one of the only jumpsuit choices around back in the day makes me shudder..
