WWII 36th Infantry Division Display


Recommended Posts

Got around to setting up a 36th Infantry Division display once again now that I’ve gotten some new pieces in. All uniforms are named and IDd. I’m particularly happy about the new small items I’ve been able to pick up with help me fill out the display and the walls behind it. It’s a fun division to collect and I hope I can continue expanding as time goes on.

 

I’m always looking for more uniforms and smalls from the division, so don’t hesitate to reach out if you’ve got anything!

Fantastic!!! Particularly I love the 142nd Infantry display, if you don't know about the battle of Castle Itter which they were apart of you should definitely read about it!

Thanks for all the comments y’all! And as for the 142nd display, all of that belonged to my g grandfather. It’s my prized possession and what got me kicked on the T Patchers. There’s actually a few of his medals missing and a few more theater made items that my grandfather still has. If you look for the post about “Delmer Koonter” in the groupings section you can see his story and the items up close.

Man, this is one of the most eye appealing focused collections I've seen!  The assortment of uniforms, jewelry and paper items is superb and I bet the hunt for such things is super thrilling. I collect a lot of similar stuff but with a focus toward the 34th ID.  I actually have that same Italian made "1944" bracelet but the links are in a different order.  No doubt a great souvenir for the dog face who fought in the MTO. Do you reenact too by chance or purely collect/put on displays?

Thanks for the comment, it is a lot of fun focusing on the unit and makes every find that much more special. That bracelet is one of the things that belonged to my g grandfather who was with the 142nd, he was only in Italy for the last few weeks of the last campaign but bought several Italian made souvenirs while he was there. i reenact as well, primarily the german Fallschirmjager but I have a 36th ID impression as well
