  1. Thank you! Forgot to mention it would be for casual wear.
  2. Hey guys, Tried searching the forum but I didn't really find what I was looking for. Could anyone steer me into the right direction for a good copy of the USAAF A2 jacket? I know of Buzz Rickson's and Eastman's being one of the top on the market. Yet are there others out there as well? Looking forward hearing from you all! Silvano
  3. Can't find the first two? Have they been sold?
  4. Hey all Bought this dogtag and POW tags of forum member Kastauffer several years ago. Hadn't done any indepth research yet, so figured it was time to finally do so. If anyone has any other detailed or other information, please do let me know! Born on June 2, 1923 in Lancaster, Ohio to George and Nellie Halderman. Paul was raised in Lancaster together with his siblings, Laureta and Mona his older sisters and Lloyd his older brother. By 1942 he was a student at the Ohio State University and got a degree in Physics. After enlisting with the Army, he served as a Sergeant
  5. Kurt, I bought this dogtag from you several years ago. Any chance you still have any research on this man? Or possible to assist me? Thanks! Silvano
  6. Might be me.. But after looking over at it. It seems like the helmet shell straps have been wrongly put on it as well? Normally the longer strap should be on the wearers right side and the short strap on the left side? Or am I on the wrong end here? Edit: Just zoomed in on the buckles, appears to be a late war pattern as well.. The T1 clasps if I remember correctly? Looking at the helmet loops, it appears to be a fixed loop helmet. So possibly the chin straps have been re-attached at one time in its life?
  7. Bumping this thread back up to the top again! As it seems that mdennis3 decided to now sell some Army Airforce groups on eBay...
  8. Woah! Every year I take a look at it, I'm impressed! How many vendors are there usually? And what's the size of it? Looks like it's a big convention hall!
  9. Great Heart especially if it did belong to a 26th Division vet!
  10. Dave, It already looks amazing! Can't wait to get a copy in hand! Will forum members be giving signed copies? Definitely worth the price! Hope it all turns out great!

    Finally!

    He sure has! And I've seen it in person, all I can say is, definitely worth a look! Hope he'll be able to post some photographs for you all to enjoy it!
  12. Welcome to the forum! I think you'll like it here. There is so much to learn here and lots of great guys who are happy to help. And yes, that website was indeed created by a member here on the forum, me! Still haven't updated it unfortunately. As I'm looking for ways to make a better website with a database with information on the 26th Division KIA's. Also my job doesn't let me have much spare time to work on it. Feel free to ask any questions if you ever have any on the 26th.
  13. Hi all, I'm looking to expand my reference book collection on the WWII subject. I already have several like Grunt Gear, GI Collector's Guide etc. My main interesr is US Army in the ETO. But also have a few books on USMC and Army Nurse Corps. Out of interest I was looking at the books "Heroes in our Midst" by a old forum member Jack Agnolia. Yet I never seen a decent report on his books if these would be worth the money to buy? I.e. decent photographs and information on patterns and all. Looking forward to some options! Feel free to post anything.
