Killer set! Would love to see more pics of the M1 helmet; I think I'm seeing red crosses under the paint too (front and back)

 

Should post the M1 on the helmet section; the guys are gonna want to see this one.

If I'm not mistaken the arrowhead is for the Normandy invasion, I remember reading some elements of the 90th were entitled to the arrowhead device.

The arrowhead would definitely be for Normandy because the 90th only saw action from Normandy on. I believe that Bill the Patch is right that there were elements of the 90th that had assault credit for Normandy, however just because he has an arrowhead does not necessarily mean that he was in a unit that actually had assault credit. My great-Uncle was with the 343rd FA and the ribbon bar of his has an arrowhead for Normandy even though the 343rd came ashore D+2 and I think assault credit was only for D and D+1. It is still really cool to see however because you know without a doubt that means he was at Normandy.

I’ve always been a fan of the 90th and their capture of Chambois.

 

The last time I went to Normandy was 1982 and I spent the day at the Moisy ford and Chambois.

 

It was an incredible day!!

 

The 90th represents the US effort in the closing of the Falaise pocket when they met up with British and Polish forces and ended the Battle of Normandy.

 

The some of the Germans fought desperately to escape the trap making for a tough fight.

Great group, I'm looking forward to seeing how the coat looks after it is cleaned and restored.
