Bram.T Collection

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I have already read a lot of topics on this forum but i have never posted anything untill today, so I thought that it would be a good idea to start with a topic about my collection.

I try to focus my collection on the personal items that the common GI could have carried with him during the war. I also collect 35th Inf. Div. items, mainly because I am a member of a reenactment group called the 35th Infantry Division Belgium.

So here it goes:

My latest project:

I'm trying to make a display that is based on the first GI in this photo of the 35th Inf. Div. in Lutrebois (near Bastogne).

Since it's not that clear what equipment he is wearing, i have improvised a little. I still need a second medic brassard, a litter and a pair of Shoe Pacs to finish this project.

That is a very tasteful display. I would love to do something along these lines for PTO sailors (shipboard and shoreside)...but that is a spendy endeavor.

A VERY clean and well organized display room! LOVE IT! I enjoy seeing collections pertaining to one Division or unit.

 

I will keep my eye out for 35th Division items for you!

Hello Bram,

 

What I like about our Belgium collector friends is their attention to detail, and well defined collections. I live in the land of the 35th Infantry Division (Kansas), but being a general collector, I don't zero in on material of the 35th. You have done very well! Jack Angolia
