  1. Which M1 helmet do you mean? I must still have it as I have never sold any. If you have some info about the men who wore them it would be greatly appreciated!!

    Thanks again,


  2. Does anyone know if the armed forces still use mukluks? I have used them for years and I have to say they are the best winter footwear for dry cold snow conditions. In wet snow conditions they soak through but in good cold dry snow they are the best thing going!! I know that there were other mukluk styles issued and if anyone has info on these that would be great!! A really nice pair you have there Salvage Sailor!!
  3. WOW!! I can't wait to see more pictures as you get more of it completed!!
  4. Wow! Thanks for the info I'll see if I can track down a copy of that report! Now to find a B-3!!
  5. My point for this question is I would like to get either an original or replica flight jacket that he would have used. Does anyone know of some good US made repros?
  6. My great uncle was a waist gunner on a B-17 during WW2. He was in the 8th air force 92nd BG 327th Squadron and was a staff sergeant. I am trying to collect items that he would have used during his time in the service. He flew missions up until August 17th 1943 when his B-17 was shot down over Germany on a mission to Bomb Schweinfurt and the Ball Bearing Factory there. He spent the remaining years of the war in a POW camp. His name was Steven Solga. My question is what type of flight jacket would a waist gunner have been wearing in August of 1943, did the use the A-2 on missions or would
  7. Gas hood? does someone have a photo of this? Thanks for the comment!
  8. The cuffs do have mini gas flaps, I was wondering why they looked funny! I checked the pants pockets for markings but I couldn't find any and I'm sure your right Johndanger about them having been washed out. One last question, what were the two buttons for that are located underneath the rear of the folded collar?
  9. I have had this Khaki shirt with a gas flap for a few years and I was wondering if anyone had any information on it. The only marking on it is the size tag. It has a three button gas flap, no epaulets, and two buttons under the fold of the collar to the rear. I also have pants made of the same material that I bought with the shirt. The pants have a button fly watch fob pocket and no markings that I can find. Is this set WW2?
  10. These photo sets are great!! Thanks for taking the time to make them!! Keep 'em coing!
  11. This is fantastic! Thanks for taking the time to post this, it is greatly appreciated!!
  12. I was unable to find any militaria shops although there are some wonderful museums to visit in Quebec. Quebec has a long military history with numerous military engagments fought in and around the old city from the 1690's onward. I found a great military book selection in the Citadel of Quebec overlooking the old city and I got some great books. The citadel is a must see for anyone interested in military history as it still is an active military base. THe unit that is stationed their saw lots of action in the first world war and there are lots of artifacts from Krupp cannons to field gear
  13. Thanks!! I'll give this a try!! I might be able to find some of his relatives now that I know a little about him!!
  14. One other question, is it possible to see where Mr. Lindie served?
