So I picked up some of my finds out of the USMC pile yesterday. I still have 2 small pieces that I can add pictures of later. Pictured are: USMC score book (I have never seen another), USMC Carbine/.45 pouch, Named USMC Leggings (with tag), USMC 5 cell Thompson Pouch, named USMC Boyt 42 Mapcase, and a USMC 1943 Officers Musette bag, So without further hesitation, here are some pics:

Nicely done! Really good stuff there.


A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands, love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper; his hands remember the rifle.

Man, that's a neat lot of stuff!


Support our troops...abandoning the War on Terror is not an affordable luxury.

I'm so old, I still call W.W.II U.S. militaria "war surplus".
