  1. Anyone know of any WWI living history groups or events in Northeast US? I am in Maryland. Thanks! Brent
  2. Thanks, Allan. The thing is that I do not have any reason to believe this is fake. I bought the Phrase Book on ebay years ago and paid about $20 for it. This was tucked in its pages and is in excellent shape but not new. I dont intend on parting with it, just fun to think it is real. Brent
  3. Was flipping through a WWII German phrase book and an original Patton Prayer Card popped out. Kind of a neat combination! Of course I am assuming it is original. How could I authenticate it? What is something like this worth? Thanks in advance Brent
  4. Hi Lewis VERY COOL! What a great story! I heard Bruce Willis is a really nice guy. Always good to his fans. Thanks for sharing this and the great photos! Brent
  5. I really liked this movie. Well acted and thought provoking. I especially enjoy the German POW camp movies and this one did not disappoint IMHO Brent
  6. Outstanding! What a great idea doing a shoot at the Tower. Everyone looks great, well done! Brent
  7. Great Looking Jeep! Nice job. I am still working on my 45MB. Brent
  8. It would stand to reason that some may have got into the theatre via the French. I doubt they would have been used by the US formally. Most Vets I run into while driving my WC tell me "I remember those, ours had doors". Brent
  9. My two girls helping me out for the day during the summer. Brent
  10. I will take some pictures today. I believe the the Wool Overcoat can button right or left, both on my large 42 and this mystery one. One thing interesting to note is that the collar is smaller than my men's (from memory). This could of course be to an earlier production. The coat does have the brass buttons. Thanks for the replies. Brent
  11. I have picked up some WAC uniform components for my collection and wanted to see if the overcoat is actually a female variant. My 42L is in storage and not readily available to compare the two. There are no tags or sizes on the coat. Any help would be appreciated. Brent
  12. Thanks, I want to use it for vehicle display. Brent
  13. I have an M2 ammo can. Is there a way to determine if it is correct WWII? Thanks! Brent
  14. Thanks for reply. Its a neat box and will hold a great deal of my smaller WWII living history display items. Looks like an easy restore. Thanks again Brent
  15. Is there any references for authentic WWII shovels, picks and axes? I want to update my WC52 with original tools but admittedly I don't know the first thing. My WC is dated 1944. Do I look for Manufacturer, dates, or US stamping to verify vintage and military use? Thanks Brent
  16. I have a command field desk dated 1940 (huge). Complete with brass hardware and all drawers. It was painted over and I wish to refinish it. Is there a standard color? I have seen them flat OD and semi-gloss forest. Drawers were painted white. There was an attempt to remove white paint but was abandoned because it was believed original. Can anyone confirm this? Thanks in advance Brent
  17. Thanks again Craig! It is the first example and has the red cross.
  18. Has anyone heard of this before? It is undated, Khaki has a red cross on front and resembles a smaller Musette bag with a shoulder strap. Any info on this would be appreciated. Brent
  19. Thanks Craig! you've been a great help! Brent
  20. Thanks Craig! That confirms it is configured right. On the first example, how does the hook work? Brent
  21. Anyone have any reference photos of a properly slung Garand?
  22. Mine is 1942 dated manufactured by DES MOINES GLOVE AND MFG. CO. It has the grid insert intact and in good condition. I am very curious about the USN example you posted. Was this considered a rare variant? I am beginning to collect WWII USN militaria.
  23. I just picked up a really nice 42 dated Dispatch case and intend on using it for my MP impression. Does anyone know if they continued to be manufactured throughout war? I have seen only a few up close and they were khaki and dated 42. If so, were there color variants i.e. khaki, OD 7? Also, mine has a really nice, intact grid. Are original maps hard to find? Are there serial numbers I should look for?
