  1. Having grown up in Washington state, and going to Ft. Lewis, I'm aware of the 9th ID, but this is really cool!
  2. I have one of the camo mosquito head bags too! I just got it in mess of stuff. I too posted it for id'ing.
  3. Turns out this is MOST LIKELY a father = son grouping. I got a chance to actually see the group and it is impressive. Here is a shot of the back of the patrol badge. Any ifo on that sailor would be appreciated.
  4. Got this US Army overseas hat in a mixed lot. I'd like to know if is WW1 or Interwar. I know the brimmed service hat was more popular to wear than the triangle overseas hat. The color leads me to believe it is post WW1.
  5. Good grab. I bid on this one, but decided not to pursue it. I'm glad you have some history on it. Makes it even nicer. Enjoy!
  6. Thanks for the thought. Most Brit made ribbon bars, wings, badges, etc., I have encountered / purchased have a silver or gray colored pin. This one is brassy colored. I didn't think of CBI but a lot of Brit stylized items came out of there a well. Good call.
  7. Grabbed these at a swap meet. Two separate bars, 2 bar: DFC & AM and three bar; American , Pacific theaters and WW2 Victory. The pin is typical Brit made, but the pin is brass colored. With the Pacific theater ribbon, could it be Australian made? The ribbon bar is wide and typical 1/2 inch Navy size, but there was a full set of Air Corps insignia with it, Aviation branch wing props and U.S. So once again, Pacific theater? Australian made?
  8. That is a nice find. Nurse or WAC? 1st Armored with middle East, pretty UNIQUE!!
  9. For future information and reference, I'd like to see that regulation. And / or hear other stories or examples of this occurring.
  10. So i got these in a package deal. Label said, WW2 camo helmet cover. When I pulled it out of the bag, There was one some what cover, solid camo material on top with camo netting below. And it has a sewn band around it. There are two camo netted "bags". I can't say they are helmet covers. Then there was a long bolt of camo netted fabric. So what do I got here?
  11. Here is an interesting post WW2 photo (really wrinkled) I found this weekend. Lots going on, so let's get started. Staring from the right, * An African American Mater Sgt wearing Army chevrons and Far East AF patch * The CPT speaking to him, wearing standard AF patch on the right shoulder * New AF Master Sgt stripes watching this conversation and wearing US open collar brass. * Mix of officers wearing wings, summer khaki hats and uniforms. * Mix of officers wearing chocolate hats and and ike jacket. * the man leaning over in the center of t
  12. Fellow forum member, who has become a kindred spirit when it comes to these buckles, pointed this one out to me. FUNKY!!! Great subject matter!
  13. GW may say that, but they do. Check their "cloned" ebay site for such things. www.shopgoodwill.com. There's not as much uniform stuff as there used to be, maybe it's been funneled to "Halloween" racks else where. There's a decent PH grouping on there right now.
