  1. Looks like I will miss this show this year. I have been put on 20 hours a week for the next few months so the wife put me on a budget! You guys have a good time and I hope you sell/buy lots of good stuff!
  2. Is it lined? It should have "beach side" camo on the inside if it is not lined.
  3. Sorry, I have not taken pictures of the vest yet. The day after I posted about the vest, my wife was admitted to the hospital with what they thought was Covid-19 but it turned out to be bacterial pneumonia. She was in the hospital 5 days and now, 3-4 weeks later she is still not completely over it. With all this going on, I forgot about the pictures. I wrote myself a note today to take the pictures. Hopefully, I won't forget again. Mike
  4. Sooner or later, just about anything you are looking for will turn up on ebay.
  5. The Marine Raiders wore burlap covered helmets in WWII.

    Repo Cap???

    Yep, it is a repro but for five bucks I would buy just to wear when working in the yard!
  7. Yes, Swiss as others have already said. The Bundeswehr used a similar pattern for a very short period of time but their camo didn't have the white spots in it. I had one of the German jackets but sold it a year or two ago.
  8. I had a helmet with a cover like that about 25-30 years ago. I bought out a guy at a gun show and the helmet was part of the haul. It didn't have the elastic so it was tucked between the helmet & liner. I had never seen one like it before. I kept it in my collection for about 10 years. Sorry, no pictures.
  9. And apparently the author has written an updated version of it:
  10. Here is a good book about the sinking of the Thresher, I read it many years ago:

    Sad news... RIP Sterling.
  12. I agree with M1Garandy. I was a 2311 (Ammo Tech) when I was in the Marines and I saw a lot of ammo cans, inside & out, and they appeared to be painted the same, inside & out. This would have been 83-89 timeframe. I would imagine it was a type of epoxy paint because it was quite durable.
