I don't even know what that is. So, no, I don't have one.

OK I'll give it a try. Bag to carry magazines for the French Chauchat automatic rifle. Either French or American made. And the Chauchat. Don't fail me robinb. I'm pulling for you. Robert

I do have a French Chauchat, ammo bag, ammo chest, and a lot of accessories. No M2 helmet though. And the link to the website doesn't work.

Today I put together a new manikin for the display. Infantryman circa 1907.

WOW... Fantastic! I think your collection sets the standard for the term "museum quality."

I have been following this thread for some time. All I can say is AWESOME! The responses on all of the posts from newbies to advanced collectors show that this is an inspiration to us all. Thanks for preserving this priceless history and even more for sharing it. keep sending updates.

Will these work? The yellow tape is 1" wide. There are no markings on the tape. I got all 8 tubes, in the matching ammo can, at a farm auction. The lot numbers match on the tubes and the can. It was like someone had fired the rounds, then policed up the area by placing the empty tubes and tear-off tapes back in the ammo can.

That's it, Robin, Thank you very much for your help.

Building? Building?? He gets to have a building?? Thats so not fair! :o

 

Hah, only joking. Your one lucky devil to have your own building to display your collection, I would personally move into it and live with my collection. :)

Verry nice display Robin !

It is amazing what can be seen in your warbuilding !


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"When you initially attacked for seven days and nights without halting for rest, you met and defeated twice your own number. Your advance required the enemy to turn fresh divisions against you, and you in turn hacked them to pieces as you ruthlessly cut your way deep into the flank of the "bulge". Your feats of daring and endurance in the sub-freezing weather and snow-clad mountains and gorges of Luxembourg are legion; your contribution to the relief of Bastogne was immeasurable. It was particularly fitting that the elimination of the "bulge" should find the Yankee Division seizing and holding firmly on the same line held by our own forces prior to the breakthrough. I am proud of this feat by you as well as those you performed earlier. We shall advance on Berlin together." -- Major General Willard S. Paul, commanding general of the 26th Infantry "Yankee Division on February 1, 1945

My 1944 USMC MZ-2 radio Jeep hasn't made it to the "war building" yet. It's still in my work shop. But since I took these pictures today, I thought I'd add it to this thread for you all to enjoy seeing.
