D Day Display


Recommended Posts

Hi, here is a display on the theme of D-Day at Omaha Beach

 

The helmet was found in Normandy near St Lô and the rest comes from OMAHA Beach (Vierville-sur-Mer and St-Laurent-

 

sur-Mer). The MKII Grenade is 100% empty.

Now that. Is amazing. I love these relic displays, it really brings us collectors back to home to the gritty facts of our profession. Great job.

RIP to all the brave men who were claimed by the jungle.

Sandy and crew, rest well my brothers,

Hey blue, you were a good dog you....

Did you actually unearth the helmet?

Very nice small collection.

Did you pay for the helmet, or was it given to you?

Looking to buy D-Day and 101st/82nd related groupings
