War Room Display

Here’s something I’ve been working on for a little while since moving in the new house. Still trying to find room to get some more stuff unpacked. Here’s a collection I’ve been working on since I was about 10 so I’ve been working on it for 17 years. Everything from WWI to Korea and a couple Vietnam items plus a collection of war trophies from the Pacific and a couple from Europe. If anyone would like to see any closer pictures of anything please let me know a lot of things I do have stories on. I just thought I would share some progress on it.46BBDF4B-FFBE-4CC7-9E67-0150A8886A93.jpeg.2d408b2e1a5a2dcb99fba0cb0d37333b.jpegA88E8B4B-A8D5-4E28-B27E-1C2988153D0D.jpeg.c2bbd8e02e3da07bbeaeb8e34f15242d.jpeg5317BDB9-960D-4C53-B55E-9A2C99B82F8E.jpeg.c87a9162bec0f9ad2d6c14d7c4c49e10.jpegEC86857C-FC09-490E-950F-2CBB4F2DE697.jpeg.a9aad62d3a5f69f5418eea80399abc27.jpeg

Wow, very impressive displays and I love the variety of items you have!  I'm curious..what's holding up the uniforms that are displayed vertically one above the other that's on the wall?

So on the uniforms hanging vertically I use the metal “J” hooks for hanging pictures in drywall. And use wood hangers for the uniform to hang on the previous hangers cross bar. It holds the weight pretty good you just can’t go more than 5 or so without it breaking hangers.

Nice display. I like that Japanese corner. Would you mind pm me with some close up pics of the gun rack?  I wouldn’t mind building something like that for my collection.

Thanks everyone for all the positive feedback!! It’s something I’m continuing to work on as I get more unpacked and I’m looking for more named WWI uniforms to add to the collection.

Great set up so far with quality items! What's the background on the ID'd WWI 1st DIV uniform?

Fantastic collection with a nice diversity of items.  Superbly displayed.  I really like the way that you have arranged your uniforms vertically.  I may have to incorporate that style as well with my collection.  Looking forward to seeing how this collection is further displayed.

 

Nice.

Thanks everyone!!  On the model 8 I actually have two sadly no real history on them other than I like them because they are a military gun that never was. Probably the only sporting rifle that I have a interest in.  As for the 1st inf uniform the trunk to the left of it was all his stuff has a lot of papers Some equipment and photos taken through France with some very graphic almost gory pictures I have never seen before. Even a snuff container with the big red one on it that I have never seen. The other wwi uniforms are ID,d as well Except the air corps one.  the Major 90th div was a distinguished service cross winner.

Here is a better picture of the grouping to wwi 1st infantry division 28th infantry regiment Herman Luchies from white cloud Michigan. His war trunk with all his keepsakes from the Great War. Most of which is displayed on top of the trunk next to his uniform and painted helmet. CA225DDF-8D65-4B59-8541-9FB5F3AC75F0.jpeg.1ae643df42db35641fe417a8930b54af.jpeg
