  1. Dirk, a little late in catching up with the forums. I happen to have a converted tunic, from standing to rolled. It is named, but looks like they replaced the sleeve lining, so no manufacture marks or date. You can send a PM to discuss more.
  2. Outstanding grouping, as with everyone else, I love to see items from those select Marines who served with the OSS.
  3. for the cover displays, I used a vertical wall mounting strips for shelving, then took a wood cut-out (like for small plaques) from a hobby store and attached that to the shelving brackets. It allows me to change the display height whenever and I can put more covers in a smaller space as compared to shelves and hat stands.
  4. Very nice and growing collection. Love the history.
  5. I am guessing several of you may also have the same problem, the spouse likes to keep all of our treasures contained in one room, I managed to get a small display wall in the main part of the house. I need to add some more to it, but at least I don't have to go to the far side ofhe house to see things.
  6. Continuing around the room. The tall display case is still a work in progress. A look going at the top and going down the shelves. The last wall has some nice 1913 thru WW1 officer sets. The Service Greens are from then Captain F.H. Delano (there is a well see photo of Delano, SgtMaj. Quick, Neville, Lejeune and Butler in Vera Crux, MX.) (the cover is an add-on for display, wish I had the original). The original group had been broken up years ago, I managed to get the tunic and three pairs of pant, then 15 year later I came across a pair of his dress Blues pants, just had to add them to the group. The Tans and Whites are small parts of the Lt. Williamson lot (except the field hat and the EGAs). So that completes the room, still have a lot of items to display. I love looking over everyone's post to try and get new ideas. Again, hope you enjoyed the views. Thanks, Airwolf
  7. I am sure like many of you, your display room has changed over the years. After a recent move to a new house, I am finally getting my room back to a presentable space. I still have a closet for uniforms and several cabinets filled with other smaller items that still need good homes, but here are some photos of what I have so far. The images needed to be compressed, so they are not as crisp as I hoped. Hope you enjoy the views and thanks for taking a look. Let's walk around the room, starting with the some uniforms, I plan to add a second level of shelving so I can display more tunics. This is a great set, all from the same Marine (except the field hat and shoulder boards), dated 1909. I messed up and did not purchase a set of boards that would have gone great with this set. Small section for some WW1 honors. A great variation from 1904 to 1918. It took me some time to find the correct Enlisted Full Dress cover but it looks great with the tunic. On to the Wall of Covers, not nearly as impressive as some of the major USMC collectors out there, but I am working on it. Several of the swords are named, I will have a lot of things to research when I retire. A little closer on the right.. and on the left.. The next posting will continue around the room.
  8. Very nice grouping, I happen to live near one of the airfields where the Paramarines trained in Southern California. It is nice to be close to such rich history.
  9. Great looking group. Another interesting items is that he only has one Sgt. chevron on the right sleeve, I always attributed the single chevron to Army practice.
