  1. Is there a collector term for the camouflage on this helmet?
  2. I really appreciate the research and energy in this WW1 and the person behind. I also appreciate the new tool. I need to use it to research a couple of WW1 sets and a coupke pueces of WW2 gear.
  3. I have never heard of FOLD3. I am excited about this finding.
  4. I have not yet. I am hopingvto see a unit yard long photo.
  5. Here is a camouflage painted WW1 U.S. 643 rd Aero Squadron helmet. It is naned to a Garrett.
  6. Here is a neat camo helmet named to a Garrett of the 643rd A.S.. Enjoy.
  7. This soldier enlisted in November, 1945. He was in the Korean War with the 7th Regiment, 3rd ID. He was WIA in 1951 but returned to duty.
  8. Here is a 3rd ID liner with the name Ryan, John service # 14046158. There are perforations in the shell, I hesitate to call them shrapnel holes but they all vary in size.
  9. This cotton shirt looks WW1 or earlier. The buttons are glass. There is only a flapless povket on the left side.
  10. I have this tan cotton shirt with one single flap less pocket. Could this be the 1904 shirt pictured in the author’s image in this thread ? The buttons are glass.
  11. I apologize for the poor spelling. I need to use my glasses when using my ipad.
  12. This sling is attached to a WW1 sporterized Gewehr 98. The sling is stamped with what I believe is a marking for an Ammunition Train (AT).
  13. Thank you everybody. That may be a stopping point with this one until someone shows a similar knife. I appreciate the research and effort.
  14. The officer was Herman Tint. He was a Portland Police officer after the war.
  15. Yes. This came came from an estate sale that had a October 1941 platter for the officers of a Coastal Artillery Battalion, a panoramic, dog tags and a green metal tool box for a rifle club. In that box are a PJ O'Hare micrometer and rifle stand, M1903 sight hood cover, aftermarket ladder sight and 1938 qual / match range book.
  16. Yes, that is all we know. This is such a “purpose built” knife with high quality. It may be a one-off or part of a small production batch. Thank you for your great research.
  17. Correction: Minnesota, not necessarily Minneapolis. There still is a small operation still in business but they are leatherwork.
  18. The scabbard is marked S.R. Sikes Company, Minneapolis. Now, to figure out what knife this is.
  19. I have this knife that was in a grouping of a U.S. Army officer. The knife is 11.75” long but unmarked. The thick leather scabbard is serialized and there is a stamping beneath that I cannot make out. The blade is really well made and razor-sharp.
  20. This amazing grouping is from a class of 1934 USNA graduate named Allyn Cole jr. He was an intel officer and Japanese linguist who was assigned to Japan and further studied in Tokyo before the war. He transfered to Corregidor and then to Pearl Harbor to witness the attack. He remained at PH as an intel communications officer and (according to the family) was a team member of Capt. Jos. Rochefort’s team that decoded the Japanese intent to attack Midway Island. He served on the USS Idaho and USS Wisconsin and Bremerhaven during the post war period. Finally, he served with the NSA and SECDEF wher
  21. He also arrived at Pearl Harbor on the day of the attack. What a dangerous, crazy and tragic experience. He definitely knew this crisis was existential and therefore, he was ready to dedicate his skill set to stopping the Japanese advance.
