Wow , great collection ! Is there a end ? think.gif;)

 

Kelso.

 

I hope not.

Here is a small insignia and picture group.

These items belonged to Lt. Englert of the 418th BS,100th BG.

He was a bombardier and PoW after going down with his B-17 on 6th September 1943.

Found me this nice Lt's helmet liner made by MSA.

It is named to a Lt. Reed and the Lt's bar is made out of medical tape.

Oh and it displays wonderfully with my Lt's helmet shell, found in Bastogne w00t.gif

Very, very nice. I love the way you put your pieces together in the photographs, very interesting. I would like to do something similar for the photos on my website which is in desperate need of an overhaul right now.

Small Mexican border service group to Lt. P. Ingebretsen.

He served as an army surgeon on the Mexican border with the Californian NG.

He later served in WWI in Europe.

It includes his Mexican Border Service medal, #32844, minature medal, and a coin for service on the border.

Not really militaria, or maybe it is, but it was a pleasant surprise for me.

I did a lot of painting of textures for planes in MS Flightsimulator a few years ago.

One of the planes i did for the game was the C-47 "Turf and Sport Special".

Now a few days ago, this certificate was in the mail sent by the Air Mobility Command museum.

It has a real part of the plane attached to it. thumbsup.gif

I was very humbled by this gesture.

Your welcome Stephan! The helmet looks great but, it's me who owes you the thanks in helping me get all the 82nd Airborne Grouping information on Lt. Franklin Thomas. I can't believe you were even able to get me his cemetery plot number! thumbsup.gif
