  1. I forgot one photo. By the way, notice the liner has his name on a paper tag and written on the sweat band
  2. O K guys, here are pictures of the other liner and stuff.
  3. Hi Mat Yes, I still have all those items, it's a nice grouping from one guy. As I mentioned the trunk contains a ike jacket with his two patches (the 83rd and 87th), trousers and shirts (OD and khaki), sweater, "radar" cap, rain coat, field jacket, buckle boots and cavalry style high boots, socks of various height and winter underwear, maps, khaki and "sateen" uniforms from the fifties (his reserve days), and small miscellaneous items.

  4. Great Find! But I have to add to your information. Barlow was from the Cleveland Ohio area and a number of years ago went to his estate sale where I picked up a number of items that belonged to him.

  9. hi Bob, nice Job on those colored sketches, you definetly have talent. How long have you been doing them now? Many years ago I was a illustrator in the army stationed at West Point doing a variety of art and have always admired someone else creating "war art" of their own.
  10. Mark, that is one fantastic uniform! And a very rare one being that it is a chaplin. You sure come up with some good ones.
  11. what a nice grouping with a Eisenhower connection! Not too many of those around.
  12. looks like some kind of veterans organization of the "keystone" divison from WW1.
  13. since he doesnt have a "ruptured duck" on the jacket doesnt it mean that he most likely stayed in the service for a while after the war? that would mean he whas the WW2 victory ribbon missing.
