That is one nice collection. Would the CBI bracelet be a custom job?

 

I would say it is a post war custom job by the recipient.

Many made bracelets for wear or for a sweet heart.

 

I have one done out of a band of aluminum etched with a CIB.

 

Commonly done with jump wings too....war time and occupation eras

Great collection. I have seen a lot of very interesting German items as well. You should post them in detail at our new Worl Militaria Forum.

British made Infantry Soaring Glider w/ 101st Patch. The Soaring Glider came from a very nice fellow forum member and at a very reasonable price! It has some significant surface damage but I still love it and its one of my favorite patches.
