  5. Thank you to everyone for the replies and the info ! I recently came across a M17 carrying bag marked solely as M17 and not M17A1 I am guessing this is probably an early manufactured one ? RJ

    Beret Flash ID ?

    Picked up a Maroon Beret today with a flash I am not able to identify. Blue Border, White Inner Border, Red Center ... Looks like the 82nd Airborne Flash in reverse .. Any ideas ? RJ
  9. Av8r & WWI Parachutist, Thank you for the info that is exactly what I was hoping for !! Thank You ! I may have a few other questions as well ..
  10. Apologies if this isn't the correct forum, but I didn't think it specifically fit into the aviation threads just because it was a parachute.. I have a few questions regarding the T10 and its associated equipment, I have a mid 70's T-10B canopy ( has the anti inversion net ) that I want to display at an upcoming function we are having the end of July. It is complete down to the risers and not cut and has the quick release . If I display it not showing the inversion net I think it could still pass for an early 70's T10.. Questions I have are : When did they stop using the harness ( 5 pt harness ? ) in favor of the one that had the quick release fittings. The deployment bag stays in the aircraft still attached to the static line correct ? And after jumps in training does the chute get put into a large back to be taken back to the lost for repack ? And if so what type of bag ? Thanks for looking and any help/answers ... RJ
  11. aef1917, thanks for the reply !
  12. Was there a specific face shield produced for M1 helmet for use during riot control in the 60's and 70's ? RJ
  13. phantomphixer, I am sorry I didn't notice and reply back to this sooner ! Sorry ... The flotation cells appear to be heavier/thicker plastic bladders and are filled with something, but I only know this because there is a seam that needs to be resewn because it has come loose. But they are sewed into the vest itself and not removable. Hopefully as some point I will be able to find more about this And as best I can tell it is not something that has been altered. Maybe I will try and reach out to the USAF museum and see if they have any further insight ..
