Wartime Collectables collection


Recommended Posts

I have always found the research more interesting in the long run than the collecting aspect. With that in mind, my collection remains 'fluid' with items from my web collecting page moving on as the research ends. But that said, there are true keepers. Items that for whatever reason continue to maintain my attention as the years pass and items and reading and rereading thier stores remains fresh. I would like to share a few with you!

Vintage military toys!
I have been hooked on toy soldiers since the day a man walked into my shop with a biscuit tin from his immigrant Grandmother that contained a DJ armband, a copy of Mein Kampf, and a handful of Elastolin toy soldiers. Quite the time capsule!

 

German composition toys soldiers from the 1930's-WWII...

Though not a South Carolinian, (Southern Illinois born and raised) my fascination with the Mexican War of 1847 has led me to study the South Carolina Mexican War medals and their history.

 

Follow this link for more history on this scarce medal!

 

This one is interesting! Showing polish wear and age when I review his records, Zach Cantey enlisted out of the Citadel Cadets into the the Dekalb Guards from Camden, SC as Color Bearer for the Palmetto Regiment. He is then reported killed in action in The Mexican War, serving in the Civil War, killed in action yet again, and drawing a pension after the Civil War until 1889!

Wow great items i must say my favorites are the WWII WASP group, certainly something on my bucket list to find. I also really like the WWI air service group and I wouldn't mind seeing some close ups of that group.

Currently looking for K.I.A. Purple Hearts and Identified groupings to Nebraska and Wyoming veterans.

Vietnam Det. B52 Delta Road Runner group

The veteran, a career SF NCO with multiple tours in Vietnam.
In early March 1966, I arrived at the 5th Special Forces Group Headquarters in Nha Trang, Republic of Vietnam, and took up housing in tent city. After in-processing, I was taken to Project Delta, Detachment B-52, for a mandatory briefing for volunteers. After the briefing, SSG Eugene Moreau and I stayed. Moreau was later killed on a recon mission during his 6th month in the Project. I remained in Project Delta from March of 1966 until April of 1970. I worked two years in Delta's Reconnaissance Section; Six months with the Rangers; and one and a half years as the NCOIC of the Road Runner element.
When Delta closed out, I transferred to MACV-SOG, where I worked as Operative, Agent Handler, and Operations Sergeant from April 1970 until April 1972.

 

Delta Force B52 Roadrunners.

A clandestine unit operating under the auspices of the American Special Forces in Vietnam. Comprised of Vietnamese nationals loyal to the South Vietnamese central government in Saigon whose mission was to conduct intelligence gathering missions in enemy controlled territory, posing as North Vietnamese soldiers.
Wearing North Vietnamese army uniform, carrying an AK-47’s, these "impostors" operated as small units charged with performing duty of the most hazardous and dangerous type.
Eight 'Roadrunner' teams with four indigenous personnel each, and eight reconnaissance teams with two USASF and four indigenous members each. The 'Roadrunner' teams conducted long distance reconnaissance over enemy trail networks.
