  1. Hello everyone, I was wondering what militaria is best displayed in IKEA’s Deltof display case. I’d like to hear what y’all have in yours, so if you have one of these cases, feel free to post a picture. Thanks, MinorInHistory
  2. Thanks for the photos! You guys are providing a lot of great material. I’m trying to gather as many examples as I can, and so far the turnout has been amazing. MinorInHistory
  3. Yes, I agree with you. I’ve also seen a lot of photos in which the guards have 03 Springfields. MinorInHistory
  4. Thanks for the photos! You guys are all very helpful and I really appreciate it! MinorInHistory
  5. Thanks for the info! One of my interests has always been stateside troops guarding coastal forts and prisoners, so thank you for sharing! MinorInHistory
  6. Hello everyone, I was wondering if anyone had any photos or examples of what US P.O.W. camp guards would have worn while on duty. I was wondering what type of gear, clothing, and weapons these units would be issued. Also, where did these units come from? Where troops just assigned to camps from other units? I’m specifically interested in the Fort Hunt instillation, Aka P.O. Box 1142. It was used to interrogate higher priority prisoners like German scientists and to pack escape kits for American P.O.W.s in Europe. Kind of ironic. Any photos, documents, or gear lists from the troops garrisoned there would be much appreciated. Any information at all on this subject would be most appreciated. Thank you, MinorInHistory
  7. Ok, thanks for the information you guys. That was something I had been wondering about for a while. MinorInHistory
  8. Hello all, I was wondering, how can you tell if a M1 Garand bandolier is from the WWII era? Is there a certain material or marking that can be used to determine this? Thanks!
  9. Howdy Hunt, For some of my paper items I tack (without actually puncturing) them in a shadow box, especially if I have a particularly nice grouping. I think that framing paper items is also a good idea if it doesn’t damage the item and if you have the wall space. I’ll attach an example of what I did with the shadow box. Hope this helps!

  10. Well, sad to say I’ve found a lamp. That’s all I’m going to say. MinorInHistory
  11. It’s crazy that you found that grouping, it having a personal connection and all. It’s great that your dad got to see those medals that belonged to someone who he knew when he was in the service. Very neat story!
  12. I hope not, though there weren’t many flea markets in NoVa to begin with. At least there are some militaria shows and things around here. Hopefully things will open back up soon.
  13. That’s an amazing find! I have seen some tours that sound like yours advertised before. It sounds like a lot of fun, especially if you have a period Jeep!
  14. Nice! I never really did Goodwill militaria hunts, so I will have to try it out this Halloween. Thanks for sharing, those are some really nice looking uniforms!
  15. Hunting with relatives makes it twice as fun. I got into collecting after hearing stories of my grandparents and great grandparents, and some of my favorite items are the ones that belonged to them because of the personal connection. It always is good to find that one thing you are missing. It sounds like the oiler is a pretty rare piece, good job on finding it! I’m surprised about the things that turn up on ebay sometimes.
