Hello,

 

here are a few lids recently acquired....

 

A few empty boxes like this one were found a few weeks ago in an attic in Sainte-Marie-du-Mont.

This medical pouch was found on the battlefield.

And this wonderful medical helmet comes fron Picauville, from a farm where much airborne stuff (mainly identified to 508th PIR) was found many years ago.

Excellent collection and preservation of history!

 

I was wondering: how did you come across LTC Robert Carroll's ID tags? I believe those tags contain his home state, blood type, and SN. Just curious is all.

 

Thanks!

Easy,

 

Thanks for finding these. Its a blessing that after allof these years we can see some fo the stuff our men possessed as it is a part of history.

 

One quick question: have you thought about returning some of the items to family members? I know sometimes that's a possibility and other times its not.

 

Thanks

HH

Wonderful Collection. It must have been great to be a young boy there in the 50's and could wander thru the old barns, etc. Richard

Man these are all good reasons for wishing to be born in Normandy :D

 

Some Normandy soil and a metal detector would be all I need :thumbsup:

Great Collection! :thumbsup:

Always looking for WWII, Korea, and Vietnam M1 Helmets. Specifically unit painted, ranked, or camoflauged.

 

Thank you to all veterans, past and present, for your service to our country.

Hello,

 

thanks for all your messages. I'm sorry but I'm really busy and I don't have many free time to post all my latest finds.... By the way, I purchased this camo helmet a few months ago. It comes from La-Haye-du-Puits area in Normandy, where the 82nd airborne fought in June 1944. This is definitely an airborne helmet, as I know same camo on D-ring helmets. Hope you will enjoy.

Will try to post more in future.

 

Cheers,
