A couple of guys I know restore ww2 military vehicles and started going to events and so I couple of us girls thought it would be neat to come along and we have been hooked since. We love the history and the overall look of everything back then. Its fun to learn and also teach people about that era.

 

I've done living history events where this group of women a was in attendance and have to say they all do a fantastic display.

I'm getting quite tired of the "50s-ish looking pin models with plenty of tattoos" look invading WW2 events. I'm not saying the women in that Reading shot specifically, but I think most of you know what I mean as a general concept.

I refused to pose with a model with that shtick at an airshow last year as she looked about as 1940s-looking as a sixties hippie and I wanted no part of that (I posed with plenty of kids in modern clothes for their parents' cameras, which to me is a totally different thing as it wasn't for anyone's portfolio). I do photo work for models from time to time but I have yet to agree to allow any of my 40s stuff to be used from my collection for any of them as they think the 'trashy 1950s biker girl' look is the same as a mainstream 40s look. I think most people here would agree it's not even close and I don't want to associated with anything like that.

The young lady who started this thread is, to me, the standard by which these 'models' should conduct themsevels, both in dress and demeanor.

Outstanding collection!! Keep up the excellent work! Don't ever lose the passion.

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.

Thanks for sharing. I was just given a small grouping to a US flight nurse this week so it has piqued my interest. Mostly common insignia, a nice English theater made Army Air Corps patch, her orders and some photos. The daughter has said that her moms flight logs are "somewhere" and that she is looking for those for me.

Great collection by the way!
