  1. I have a few suggestions: Firstly try contacting Donald Trump, he recieved a Purple Heart as a gift and mentioned he always wanted to own one. Two, Admiral McCains medals were sold by his family so try contacting John McCain as someone in his family sold those. Maybe they could share more light on why they did this and how this law means families will no longer be able to sell these medals. Three, a high profile collector of medals is Lord Ashcroft in the UK, he is a famous businessman and collector of Victoria Crosses however I do know he has US medals in his collection. Maybe mem
  2. Hi Thanks for that. I cant find the Hawkwood ones however I just had a look at the Workware ones and I might be tempted by them as I cant find any other ones in size 36. Nick
  3. I like that embroided version. Thanks for sharing. Nick
  4. I Cant wait for this book. Will you have written information on the Purple Heart? It's history, award criteria, types, numbers awarded, types of engravings etc. Nic
  5. Hi Rob Yes I was a bit suprised myself, usually I see photos of Marines in Korea wearing HBT's or M43's in colder months, interesting to find some wore the Vandegrift jacket.

  7. On this day 66 years ago the Battle of Chosin Reservoir began and I thought I would share with you a grouping I have to a Marine who was present during 'the Corps' finest Hour.

  9. Hi guys Does anybody know where I can buy some reproduction USMC P44 HBT trousers? I am putting together a Korean War Impression and I already have some P41 HBT's and would like to mismatch them with some P44 trousers. I know WWIIImpressions used to sell them however they are all out and I cant seem to find any other vendors other then BuzzRickson which are really expensive and they don't make them in size 36 or 38 which is what I am after. Is there any other vendor out there that makes them or does anybody on the forum have some WWIIImpressions USMC P44 trousers they might wa
