Kansas City Military Collectors Club annual show displays


Recommended Posts

 

 


Liberty and other patches




Was this group for sale or just for display?

I got some years ago a grouping of a VA-881 pilot (his helmet + mask, his g-suit and his flightsuit with the squadron patch). Very difficult to find any information about this reserve squadron. Even USN Museum seems to have not any information about this unit.

Great display! Like the "foreign" side.

 

Yes, the KCMCC displays also include "foreign" militaria as we have local Kansas City club members who collect other than US material and display the same at our annual display only shows. Here is a thread on the 2014 display show that may also be of interest. In the background you will see some foreign military camo uniforms that were brought back by a club member who is also an active duty US Naval Officer that he picked up while in a foreign country on embassy assignment. These would certainly be in the nature of a legitimate "bring back."

Of course, since this is the US MIlitary Forum we normally do not allow the discussion of "foreign" militaria unless it is in the nature of GI "bring backs" or in the course of discussing something else that is US related. Something else in the form of this club display for instance. ^_^

 

For instance, I collect uniforms from various military police organizations such as the US Constabulary (that was my club display shown earlier on this thread). However, my interests are not only with US police units but with German, Japanese, and Italian as well. As part of the discussion of this 2014 display... here are a couple of photos of his Afghan uniforms and my Cold War Volkspolizei display to show the diversity of items in the annual displays.
