Tom,

 

Very Nice! I see that you have some attributed Jump Wings. Could you let me know if any are Maker Hallmarked and what PIR or PIB they were issued to.

 

BTW, I still have the Jump Jacket you located belonging to Carrol Kramer. Its my center piece.

Great items and neatly displayed. I assume the SS LAH uniform was a bring back by a US vet? Very nice and high quality items Tom.

fantastic, never get tired of seeing your stuff Tom. Is that a rigger made cover for the knuckle knife sheath?

Hi Tom,

amazing of course !

I particularly love the M41 with 17th AB SSI. Is it identified ?

Thanks All! Didnt think Id get this kind of response.

 

Several wings are hallmarked, some British made.

 

The German tunic is a GD, not SS. It was NOT a vet bring back (& is only GD for display).

 

The scabbard is rigger made, cake from a 101st AB vet.

 

I have another reinforced M42 set named to a 504 fellow and some AB Ikes as well.

 

Ive always believed the best way to learn what is real is to hold, study, examine and learn from it all. Im still in the generation who knew our dads & uncles served in WWII. Their history is ours to cherish & share!

 

Blessings to all.

Tom, should have looked a little closer since Kurt pointed out it is not an SS LAH but instead a nice Großdeutschland tunic!

Did the Deutschland grouping come from the soldier in the pictures? If so, quite awesome!
