Went to a College Surplus store for office supplies & didn't expect this haul.

I did go back and bought all the breeches (7 pair), to sell or trade off, but they wanted to hold off on selling the rest for now. I'll be checking back again.

 

Thanks

This was a nice helmet grouping (Well grouping after I put it all back together). Weird thing was, after talking to the employee there I found out she didn't put the dog tags out, because she didn't think she could sell them. Anyway, I got them and the history will now stay with the items. His last name was on a piece of tape inside the liner, but not enough to make a positive ID.

 

I haven't done any research on him yet. Obviously a post war time period, but due to his rank I'm sure he has a WWII history to him. I didn't realize the 84th Division became an Airborne unit for a short period of time, 1946.

Hello Troy, after a quick look in the 84th ID WW2 rosters is was able to find only one person named Epley. He served with Co E of the 334th infantry regiment. His first name is also Robert but he appears to have a different middle name.

Very possible just a miss print and it would make sense being a 1st Sgt in the 50's? I'll see if I can match up the service number on his dog tags 36101706

 

Thanks for checking.
