  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. Plus, a very early helmet liner (named) with 87th and "fulge" insignia (same as on the unit pins on the uniform), the liner edge is painted with a red and b
  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. Items such as his trunk, M-43 field jacket, rain coat, Ike jacket, shirts and trousers, boots, in all about twenty-five items.
  5. I have a 26th Yankie Division tunic and overcoat (from the vet's family) with Pink discharge stripes that were never put on. And then I have a tunic with medical brass that has a maroon 90th division patch and matching maroon discharge stripe. It seems colors vary a lot.
  6. I couldn't put the book down when reading "Unbroken"! It depicts what horrific inhumane treatment a captured prisoner of the japanese went through. The book is a "must read" for any student of history, especially of the pacific war.

  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.
  14. a while ago I was lucky to run across a POW grouping at a estate sale. Everything was gone except for a overseas cap and a large envelope with papers. It seems from all the papers he was a B-17 bombadier shot down on his first mission. Included with the papers was a scrap book and his german dog tag.
  15. that's a real nice ww2 pot! As for the liner, it's way too sophisticated to be a childs toy! The liner chin strap looks like an older one and is sold by many dealers for fifty bucks alone.
  16. could he have been a reserve officer?
  17. I wondered if anyone is interested in seeing a few photos of old army ambulances with their drivers. These are original photos found at a estate sale. It is possible at least one of the them was taken in Italy. Does anyone recognize the manufacture of the two types of vehicles?
  18. very nice indeed! Most collectors dont think further than what a GI wore. There are so many everyday items that a serviceman used or touched that are never considered. A few years ago I came across at at garage sale a couple of oak chairs from a Selective Service office
  19. I picked up a footlocker, a M1 helmet and odds and ends from a doctor in WWII, his name was Captain Kirk
  20. great uniforms, I especially like the early blue one. I have one of those jackets and maroon ties and always wondered what the skirt looked like. Thanks for posting it

    ww1 82nd uniform

    That is a great looking uniform! The model 1918 uniform is pretty rare to be actually used in WWI. Within the last year I saw two of them (one at a show and one at a antique shop) and neither had a patch, and I think the 82nd is one of the nicest designed patch. Congratulations.
