The helmet is worn on the gas mask bag while the trooper grooms his mount.

 

The 112th wore a mix of coveralls and 1st model HBT two piece suits with a mix of daisy may hats and caps.

 

Campaign hats went overseas but aside from parades and guard detail didn't see much bush time.

Another trooper from the 112th

 

This time a rifle man.

 

Everything in the photo is original and pre 1943 dated.

 

Not visible is the 1917 revolver holster.

 

The 112th had a high percentage of revolvers.

Well, as a newby it is time for a picture, only I don't have any recent pictures of me in a uniform within the scope of this forum. So I dug these old ones up.

It was taken in 1981, on route to the Ardens, again.

In those days, we still wore the original gear and uniforms. I believe I'm still wearing a Belgian army helmet at the time though.

Note the 29th division patch, which very soon became my favourite division to portray in those days.

This picture was taken in 1988 at a public event. Again focus on the 29th division, with group members vehicles and tac signs to the 121st combat engineers.

 

Days long gone I'm afraid.

No, helas. I only had 1 Ike jacket, that was also named, with original 29th patch but I have no documentation anymore. Back in those days you could pick up original M41 jacket at low price, and sewn your own patch on them, which was common practice. I had quite a number of original 29th patches too. Have only a few left now.

Dave, unfortunately I sold my entire US 1917-1918 / 1940 - 1945 collection 20 years ago, including Jeep and Dodge. So I have no idea were the IKE jacket ended up.

Another photo from Oshkosh last year. Looking forward to another great one this year as they commemorate the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII.

Nice that they let you into the Mustang. I've gotten to do that few times in the past but it isn't common that a P-51 owner will let you into the cockpit...

Cool!

 

You too, great period impressions! :D

 

One more pic of LRRP Company D, 151st Inf, 1969 (with the tropical rucksack in the left hand, sorry about the mosaic because of my glasses is not the VN era style)

Thanks dude.

 

More MACV SOG please?

 

A breakdown on who made your stuff would be good too.

 

Not completed yet. :lol: I still working on it, which might be one of my "hobby assignments" of this year.

 

Pic of my current web gear - maybe I need to exchange the position of those two M1956 canteen covers with the inside M1956 pouches?

Nice SOG stuff dude.

 

I would say leave the canteens as they are as this is how not all but a majority of rigs where set up or replace ammo pouches with more canteen covers as they held more mags.

 

Either way it looks great.

 

Here is an excellent reference page on some SOG stuff if you haven't seen it. these dudes go to another level.

I love this shot, great brackground and the color looks slightly washed out like lots of original shots from the 60s.

Great work!
