Nine O Nine

After quite a while of looking at some of the amazing displays and collections on this forum i thought it was time I got stuff out of boxes and shared my own collection. Ive been collecting for about 16 years (Since the age of 12) and my main interests are the 8th Army Air Force, The U.S. Army medical department The Normandy Campaign and the European Theatre of Operations in General.

 

I don't have a room devoted to my collection more of a corner :) But the room is blacked out to keep everything safe from sunlight. My apologies for the poor quality of some of the photos i think i need to hold off buying new bits for the collection and invest in a new camera!!

 

my intention is to post not only my small display but my Groupings as time goes on.

 

I also collect a few TR items and some do appear in the pictures but i won't focus on them in great detail the flag you can see is a G.I bringback item.

 

Hope you enjoy the Photographs feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.

Thanks for the kind words gents, Sparty one the insignia on the M1 is of the 79th infantry division, The helmet is named to a private who was killed on the 30th June fighting for Cherbourg.

Shaefer's looks really nice! I was watching that group and should have pulled the trigger. Shaefer was from my hometown; glad to see someone here bought it. Nice displays!

Fantastic photos and a fantastic (and very well focused) collection!

 

I love the way you have everything laid out and the use of display cabinets, torso mannequins and riker mounts etc. It defintiely makes the best use of the space!

 

Thanks for posting and good to see (yet another) high calibre collection in the UK on the Forum
