Sunday: The flea market yielded lots of great stuff, but these were the only military items I found. Please note that not everything pictured is correct, but this is as I received it and it was cheap enough to boot.

Wednesday: A friend of mine picked up this group, but decided it didn't fit his interest much so it came my way. Included helmet, dog tag bracelet, two medals and some letters and other paper (not pictured) from the 103rd MG.

That 103rd MG helmet is a killer. Now all you need to find is one of the painted gas mask bags to display with it, and those seem to show up a little more often than the helmets. Great finds!
