  1. Well, here in central Maryland my family is getting a lot of heavy rain and wind. We have a stream and woods on our property and the stream is completely flooded and a couple trees have fallen. Still have power though!!!
  2. Hey, you may need to empty your inbox, im trying to pm you!

  3. Very cool, grouping. I really like that helmet
  4. Hey, does anyone know anyone who's trying to sell some ww2 jackets?
  5. What about patches on the right shoulder. Is it the same rule as now with it being a combat patc or was it different. Also was this common on field jackets or only dress jackets. Thanks, Nickh
  6. Very cool shirts. Chris, is right, you don't see as many as you used to. I really like that 101st one!
  7. Hey guys, starting to collect WWII uniforms and helmets. I've always love watching WWII movies and documentaries but which movies/series have a good representation on the correct patch/rank wear on the uniforms. Any that do a poor job on the patch wear? Thanks!
  8. Thanks Matt and Doyler. Just trying to get a sense of what to look for!
  9. What about enlisted rank chevrons. And did officers wear rank in the field? Im guessing no but can anyone clarify
  10. Another basic question. Would it be safe to say that most divisions in the ETO wore the shoulder patch on their field jackets. If not, where there any units that decided not to wear the patch or did some soldiers individually take it off or choose not to wear it. Also how common were rank chevrons on field jackets. Thanks! (sorry for the dumb questions)
  11. Are these the pants worn with the M-1941 Field Jacket or were there different pants worn over these?
  12. Thanks Matt. And nice set up by the way!
  13. Here is a photo of US soldiers in North Africa,they are wearing the shirt that I'm curious about.
  14. One final question, what uniform did U.S. soldiers wear during the Italian and North African campaign. Im guessing the M-1941 jacket but I was reading a book I found at the library (I can't remember the name, but it had mostly photographs from WWII) and most pictures from those campaigns showed soldiers wearing a thinner combat shirt. What is this? I'll try and find a picture.
  15. Thanks for the help Sabrejet. And Patches, thanks for the research, I knew the 6th Army was in the Pacific Theater so I wasnt quite sure why someone would wear a field jacket. So about tanker jackets, they were issued to armored personnel, but infantryman and the like also wanted them so some were able to get their hands on one. Is this right?
  16. Thanks Justin. The seller started the bid at $0.01. I was first to bid and maxed it up and a few others tried to get it but I had it saved!
  17. Thats great to here! Cant wait to get it.
  18. Here's the eBay link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?V...utorefresh=true Hope I didnt get ripped off!
  19. I just bought my first WWII jacket. Got it off eBay. It is a M43 jacket complete with shoulder patch and tech. 5 chevrons. Looks to be in great shape. Was this a good buy, I only payed $27 for it?
  20. Thanks again guys. Sabrejet- For airborne units when was the m42 uniform also used in Italy and Sicily? And what uniform would have been worn/seen more during the Normandy Invasion, infantry wise, the M1941 or M43. Thanks again and great pics Matt!
