  1. thanks again, mate, that's innerstin' seems amazing they're still in inventory, but then so is the M14 rifle and lots more legacy stuff. the elastics are perfect even the booties tho wrinkled
  2. thanks mohawk - will do! this belonged to an ASW officer flying prop planes off the bennington and hornet, Ret. '85. I figure it's worth maybe $100, sound right?
  3. thanks mate! - tho it has the 'defective' tag looks never worn - and maybe the seam got fixed. when do you suppose this was made? anyone else please?
  4. from a uss hornet prop pilot: is this the granddaddy of the current similar 2000s model? no maker mark or I dunno where to find it (chest zip stuck, but attached tag is '66-dated). it came with a probably-unrelated pressurized green hood with valve and cloth ties in the back. come in dustin! thanks a lot.
  5. front and also the tag if sys lets me otw a third go-round
  6. from a uss hornet prop pilot: is this the granddaddy of the current similar 2000s model? no maker mark or I dunno where to find it (chest zip stuck, but attached tag is '66-dated). it came with a probably-unrelated pressurized green hood with valve and cloth ties in the back. pix in 2 postings come in dustin! thanks a lot.
  7. MAJOR DITTO! tremendous and no doubt hard work honoring him. much respect to you both.
  8. mt sas was a supply officer for det 101. he issued these to agents. black leather-covered with I think lead powder inside. anyone familiar with these? do you think more local QM or pentagon contractor in maybe europe, or commercial off-the-shelf, i.e. a police equipment supplier? as expected, sterile. thanks a lot.
  9. closing in on 148 views and aside from brother dennis, mum's the word? c'mon guys and chime in, willya please -- these things don't grow on trees ya know!
  10. he was a supply officer with the detachment. thought you'd like to see a good one. thanks for the eyes-on and any comments (btw mod-I havent been getting alerts in my personal email to responses or PMs.)
  11. oustanding -- very rare, early ivory piece! made the better with the all-over, unmessed-with tarnish and yeh being an eickhorn doesn't hurt it one bit, just the opposite! great score, the bayo indeed looks excellent, too.
  12. one of our esteemed members PM'd to say he saw one at carl eifler's house some years back... anyone else know about these reunion items? thanks again and good weekend.
  13. well-made and enamelled, reunion item I'm almost sure, clip reverse lightly stamped 'Balfour' in script -- any ideas? can't find another thanks!
  14. thanks loads, gents, and happy christmas to one and all!
  15. this looks WW2 to me, but haven't seen one with the top pocket arrangement: the 2 big uppers slanted, snapped with scalloped flaps. field mod? korwar issue? foreign? this the only pic, sorry. help much appreciated, thanks
  16. Ivory, for certain, great score! as to extra cost options there were several: deluxe hanging straps, name-etched blades, engraved pommels or guards and so on. this might've been an impulse buy for the newly appointed (and probably not rich) Lt. forgoing all the other fancy bits he figured he'd spring for the ivory handle. or someone loaned him the reichsmarks for the upgrade. who knows? nice imperial 'butcher-blade' bayo, too -- esp. if it has the sawback (many had these ground off.)
  17. I've seen color photos of 'paris under the occupation' showing women in shoes real similar to these. apparently females made up for the lack of leather (or even rubber?) soles with what the euros have always had: STYLE! anyhow great and inteesting score, well done!
  18. outstanding - esp. with the eagle still in place! by the way, is the backing piece the eagle's woven on camo? u.s. or enemy, this is why we 'get out there.' and yeah, mutual respect among all jumpers, then as now.
  19. super condition in any case! good going.
  20. more fantastic info; very much obliged, Mod! does anyone know what these things are for or what they're constituents of??
  21. a thousand thanks, Mod Aznation! so, really does this look like parts off a blowtorch or other piece of gear, cobbled together by his staff as a souvenir as he left berlin? I wonder if chamberlin's own nickname was 'blowtorch' - maybe coz he had a bad temper!
