  1. Elizabeth, found this picture of the knife you were questioning. It was titled Marine Raider. You can see it on his cartridge belt.
  2. After years of looking for one I finally found it, and it's a nice one.
  3. Dustin, outstanding picture. On a side note, is it me or does that rifle look short? M1917 rifles are 46 plus inches long.
  4. Dave, Thank you for taking the time to respond. Tom
  5. Good evening everyone, hope all is going well. My question is simple, I recently acquired a cast iron US Navy bell. I believe it is WW2 manufacture due to the cast iron material. I would like to refinish it but am unsure what a bell would look like once the vessel was out to sea. The attached pictures are from a US Navy training film, the bell I have, one that sold recently, and a NOS bell on ebay. Once a vessel was out to sea was it repainted as new, or was it painted with whatever. Thanks Tom
  6. Charlie, Outstanding photo. My WAG is a Sauer 38H .
  7. Hi Bob, For now they are in a cedar chest with a lot of my other collection. I'm recently retired and am looking forward to trying to figure out a proper display. I need to figure out how to display firearms, edged weapons and US Navy items. No problem right??
  8. Thank you everyone for your comments Much appreciated
  9. So I thought I would post my blades. I'm not very good at pictures so bear with my lousy photography. Take care and stay safe.
  10. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydrogen_embrittlement Hi, nice Broomhandle but since it has been chromed I would not suggest shooting it much due to hydrogen embrittlement. This is something that often happens to a higher grade of alloy when plated. I'm by far no expert on the subject. I worked in a racecar shop years ago and we were told not to electroplate any of our suspension parts especially the one made of chromoly steel. Take a look at the link I hopefully attached and see what you think. Take care Tom
  11. Again thank you all for your responses, my reasons for asking was I have a jack, an ensign and a commission pennant and want to display in correct orientation. I know I have stated before that I have a piece of the commissioning pennant my father got when LCI (L) 950 was decommissioned from the USN and Lend Leased to the Russians during "Operation Hula". A sad day according to him.
  12. OK, Thank you everyone for taking the time to answer. Much appreciated Tom
