  1. Anybody know where I can find a place that sells the brass (ore even zinc) pistol belt buckles? I'm also interested in the 1974 ball type buckle as well. I've scoured ebay, but don't really want the whole belt, although I'd be interested in any old chewed-up belts just for the hardware.

  2. Thanks for the info guys, I had never seen an A-2 before and the fact that it's so heavy and bulky, plus the fact that there are no zippers makes me wonder if it's a casualty warming bag, whatever. Does anyone know if this can be used in conjunction with the M-1936 officer's bedroll?

  6. Recently my mother passed away and as we were going through her papers, I came across her discharge from the WAVES in WW2. She had told me about being in the WAVES and we have her dress uniform with the white hat and blue brim along with the gray seersucker work uniform. In looking over her discharge as well as letters home to her parents several interesting items emerged. She enlisted in May of 1944 but was discharged January 3rd of 1945...Six months total service, however what she revealed in her letters interested us even more.
