I was out yard sailing one day and couldn't find a thing.

 

I'm in a small suburb of Harrisburg, Pa and drive by the fire house.

 

They are having a chicken dinner sale and all these men are around this big BarBQ.

 

I stop and walk up to them and ask " Did any of you serve overseas ? "

 

This one man gets right up into my face and says " Do you want a German helmet ? "

 

I am not lying. That is exactly how it went down and it took 3 or 4 visits to get it all.

 

His basement was so full of stuff that he had helmets screwed to the ceiling.

 

Tons of T.R. ( gone a long time ago ), a large collection of Tank ID models and this remnant.

Served with the 813th Tank Destroyers in Europe and Pa Governors Troop in 30-40's.

 

He wore the leather helmet while riding Indian Motorcycles.

A large portion of this group and a set of 104th China went to Mayor Reed of Harrisburg’s collection.
