  2. Grabbed these yesterday..they have a name stamp which checks out to a ww2 Marine but I have never seen rear pockets like these... anyone have more info? Possible field mod? Sent from my SM-G960U1 using Tapatalk
  3. Picked this up yesterday, wondering if anyone has seen this before? I dont know why it would be marked POW unless it means something else? Any thoughts are appreciated. Sent from my SM-G960U1 using Tapatalk
  4. Thank you to everyone for the information and insight. Much appreciated. Sent from my SM-G960U1 using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks P59 for the info. So the leather chin cup is not correct for this liner, it should be the webbed version. Anyone else have an opinion on the uniforms? Sent from my SM-G960U1 using Tapatalk
  6. AB helmet. Assuming its all from orig parts but im curious if 1st aid kit or other parts seem like repros. Sent from my SM-G960U1 using Tapatalk
  7. 11th AB M42 Sent from my SM-G960U1 using Tapatalk
  8. Trying to add a few AB items to the collection for my ETO display. Im not versed in these as Im primarily focused on USMC. My question is, are these period pieces? The 11th set has a different zipper and the snaps seem different. Also the 11th set has quartermaster(?) Stamps in the back yoke of the jacket while the m42 jacket and trousers are void of any stamps or marks. On the helmet, im assuming its a sum of the parts kind of deal but Its been offered to me for 800, but that seems a bit steep? Then again I dont know AB values like USMC material. Any thoughts from you AB
  9. Great grouping and excellent write up. Congrats! Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk
  10. These came from the son of the veteran. Great theater made DUIs with 'sterling' and 'Calcutta' marked on the obverse. The bullion work on the SSI are amazing. The workmanship is just incredible. Also included a framed blood chit and squadron patch. Also letters and other epeherma. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180602/5de7342760fad1f6ea0c0422d6c83508.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180602/e6bcb642436bfdaf15a52ef6f8689fe1.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180602/67b2a0340ce2b1d18a7b5dc4f50078a3.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180602/17489cdf6a1d99fe745e
  11. Not my area of expertise. Came in a grouping of a radio air crewman in the CBI theater. Would like to know what unit this is. Thanks Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks Gents. I picked up the group. I'll post detailed pics but there's some near stuff including DUIs made in Calcutta and theater made patches in bullion. Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk
  13. Hello I've found a small grouping to a Sgt radio man who was in the CBI. There are letters some photos, paper and a few incredible bullion SSI that I will post later. Also a painted squadron patch; he was aircrew. Among the items was also this blood chit that the vet or his son (where all of the items came from) had framed. I'm not very knowledgeable on these but wondered if it was wartime or post war. Thanks Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk
