Small 70th Division M1 helmet group

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone


Have not posted in a while and I bought this M1 from Steve k quite a bit go but i have yet to see it in hand as its back home. Id'd to T/5 George E Pittinger who served in an HQ unit driving trucks for the Trailblazers for the entirety of the division's service in WWII according to what his family put on his WWII memorial. The pictures are Steve's too so a big thanks to him for supplying me with this helmet and the well executed photos.

Nice one! I Always liked those 70thID liners with ax and name. Is that 70th patch somehow attached to the canteen cover?



Never give in - never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense.




Keep buggering on.

Thanks very much gentlemen!


I am not sure if the patch is fixed onto the cover somehow but I think it might just be tucked in.


I also have contacted the trailblazers organization to see if they have more info on my guy.
