  1. Just an FYI in case you were not aware. After the Battle Magazine just came out with an excellent article on the OSS Groups in Greece with a number of pictures. Issue # 186
  2. Here is just the armband version. What a coincidence!!!!! https://www.ebay.com/itm/WW2-US-ARMY-MEDIC-ARMBAND-ORIGINAL-PHILA-Q-M-STORES-MARKINGS-CIRCA-1944/184228476898?hash=item2ae4df77e2:g:vkIAAOSwiFFefgaF
  3. Check completed auctions on E Bay. I think that gives you at least 30 days history of what a particular item went for. Try worthpoint.com I believe you can get a trial subscription for a short time for free.
  4. That is probably the most common escape map around. Its a rayon type material made in the USA as far as I know. Just about all the European escape maps (with a couple exceptions) were made in England. As far as I know no one has copied that map yet.
  5. This probably does not help much but I have an example of the AN/PRT-4 that was totally rebuilt and tested at the Sacramento Army Depot in June 1990. No receiver just the transmitter. It was depot converted to use two 9 volt batteries. Rather then shrink all the photos and post them here here is the auction it's on now.... https://www.ebay.com/itm/283757992733
  6. Somebody who deals with Lee Jackson Militaria might want to drop him a line...
  7. Here is another picture of one. Used for attaching trees to poles...
  8. Received mine yesterday. Great pair of books. Its obvious they were a labor of love. Great documented research. Can hardly wait for volume three.
  9. It could very well have been some unit assembled kit but in all honesty I think its been cobbled together by a dealer who had a lot of military and commercial items that they wanted to sell together rather then piece out. Another possibility it was assembled by some bush pilot or small airline that flies in remote areas. Somebody else may have added all the sea survival items later to fill up the can to make it more attractive to sell.
  10. I believe that one is authentic. That particular one has been reproduced but I believe yours looks good. I would think $75 to $125 maybe. Very common.
  11. They are late 50's early 60's. If that is the same kit I saw on E Bay I am pretty sure it was put together by a boy scout using a couple of jungle kit first aid kit pouches. I think the have troop (number) written on them.
  12. I would really like to see the top one translated. I have never seen a real or repo example that looks like that one before. Looks like the Chinese alphabet...
  13. Can anyone ID the first two ribbons for me? I know #3 is WW2 Victory. Thank you in advance.
