  1. I think this was a send off item for a AAC member. Perhaps this is early war.
  2. I found this pair yesterday. These are early WW2 but look as though they walked across europe.
  3. Here is a nice helmet that I found in Utah today. This is a 5th regiment hq helmet that was British made. I have not cleaned it yet.
  4. I found this today in Utah. It is worse for wear and I have not cleaned it to look for identity yet. I got lucky today. When I return to Oregon, I have an emblem waiting to complete it. I like the blue feather head dress. There is still a bit of black square background.
  5. I found a decent FS stiletto a couple days ago . I understand it is a type 3. It is such a well balanced knife. The elastic band on the scabbard is torn but overall, a nice piece.
  6. Here is a large pair of unissued trousers with zinc Army buttons made under a 1920 contract with Philad. QM Depot specs.
  7. Here is my latest pick up. A type 3 FS. The elastic banding is torn.
  8. Here is a nice autograph from a hero of Guadalcanal Mitchell Paige. The artist is Karl Poretta.
  9. This is a nice setting his autograph using an original 1943 Esquire print.
  10. Thanks Marine. I understand MCL= Marine Corps League. We were lucky to have crossed paths with these fellows but also to have some notion of their role in history. thanks again Paul
  11. In 2000 at the University of Utah, 4 Marine Raiders from WW2 gave a discussion at the union building about their experience in WW2 in the Raider battalions in the Solomons campaign and Makin to their eventual Raider Bn dissolution and reassignment into the divisions to participate in the Marianas and Iwo Jima. It was a fascinating talk . They signed my WW2 era cover. Their names were: -Loveland -Guymon -Kennedy -Belnap
  12. Figured it out. 101st Ammunition Train assigned to the 26th Division.
  13. I have this nice souvenir French 37 mm pom round. The shell casing says”101 AM-TN-1918 France.” Any idea what unit this was?
  14. Very nice! Collect the set!
  15. This kite was found tucked in a corner in a dark shed at a local estate sale. I bought it for $2. It was badly torn and crumpled but it had the frame and seemed more or less complete. It was washed in a kitchen sink and laid flat to dry. Using a tent repair kit ,Tenacious Tape and glue for fishing waders, here it is. I replaced the grommets too. I say “good enough.”
  16. I have two of these sets. One I will turn into a living room floor lamp, the other?
  17. Hi all. I have this patch but am unsure of the age. I assume 1960s.
  18. I have 2 steel sights that a have a diameter of 3.75”.one side is painted in glow in the dark paint. I hope someone knows what this goes to.
  19. Thanks Skip. I assume the Army personnel were performing a logistics role regarding the air field and getting prepped for USAAF use. I will read up to confirm.
  20. Thanks folks. This knife is unmarked. Was it an Army or USAAF specific issued piece?
  21. His obituary from 1999 states he was on Iwo Jima. Now, what unit? Here is a image of him.
  22. Here is a unmarked M3 fighting knife named to a Bill Liscum service #39090406. It says Iwo Jima 3-45. He was in the Marine Corps. Does anyone have any way to verify he was on Iwo and what division?
