  4. Congrats Dean! A lot of effort went into obtaining and keeping this together. An amazing piece of combat history. Incredible it is so complete. In safe hands!
  5. Amazing finds and well done keeping them together! Just brilliant!!
  6. Hello, great item! Just seen the posts. Definitely 8th Marines, 2nd Marine Division. Tactical marking colours for the second Marine Division were: 2nd Marines - white 6th Marines - blue 8th Marines - yellow 10th Marines - red 18th Marines - black This is derived from known identified marked pieces. The actual shapes are another story and mystery yet to be unlocked!
  7. Within the same magazine "The second Great War" July 1946 is a bit of British humour.... Oh to own one of those 75mm SP gun Halftracks!!
  8. Hi Ken I found an old magazine publication in amongst my paperwork "The second Great War" from July 1946. Within it are some 'then and now' photos of 1944 and 2 years later in 1946. I enclose photos here. They cover Coutances, Marigny, Montebourg, Periers and St Lo. Although not on the beaches, they are very interesting Normandy break-out areas. It is fascinating to see how patched up and cleaned up the towns were by then. I hope the photos are clear enough and of interest! Cheers Graham
  9. A pleasure as always Dean. Top shelf items there; including some incredible groupings. Your enthusiasm and collection grow by the day! Awesome.

  11. Always a pleasure to see your new additions Dean. Real eye candy indeed!
  12. Hello, I have re-listed this posting in the 'uniform' section. I hope this is ok. Those who know me, will understand my passion for this element of collecting. I have spent some time creating a website to collate my collection and findings. It is not finished. It is not perfect! I hope you find it enjoyable and informative, as well as an important tribute to the Marines behind the artefacts. This is my small tribute to them. I look forward to hearing from fellow enthusiasts... https://usmcunis.com (The tabs to the pages are on the top left of the home page)
  13. Thank you! Yes, I agree. This was the host website template, so I will try to modify the drop down box. I have always admired your extensive website including the UNIS section of course!
