Hi Bastogne44,

 

Sgt Kenneth D. Dirth was KIA on August 5, 1944 in the vicinity of Vire.

Great collection and perfectly displayed. :thumbsup:

Im finding it hard not to go out and try to find a full size mannequin after seeing all the nice displays that show up on this forum. Great work. As a matter of fact I think I will start looking.

 

Craig If you are close to Edmonds there is a guy up that way who has been posting a nice, male sitting mannequin for the last few weeks. $100 bucks, I'd buy one, but it can't quite happen at this time :(

Bruno: I have been trying to email you , but I do not think my messages are getting through. I wanted to know if you had interest in selling that piece of my grandfathers equipment you showed on here yet. If you are ready to sell I am still very, very intersted in buying it from you, just tell me how much.

Hi, I am very interested in the bracelet belonging to Merlin A. Newhouse. Merlin was my husband's uncle and is buried in Normandy. We are going on a WW II Memorial Tour in Sept. 2013. Since we will be going to the cemetery, I was searching for information on Merlin and was shocked to see the picture of his bracelet come up. Merlin was born on November 8, 1917 in Freedom, Wisconsin and entered the service on December 7, 1942. Is there anyway I can contact bastogne44? Would it be possible to purchase this bracelet?

Absolutely stunning collection! I really like the G.I. of the 175th 29th infantry division mannequin and 29th infantry division helmet. In fact I like everything a lot. How long have you been collecting for because you have a huge collection.

As Bruno is not interested in answering my emails anymore, I will put this to the group. I am interested in purchasing a piece of equipment which has my grandfathers name on it, which Mr Bruno has displayed in this forum. I am also interested in helping the family of Merlin Newhouse out by purchasing Merlin's bracelet and returning it to the family. I am placing a bounty for the return of each of those items. I do not wish to get into dollars (euros) and cents in an open forum, but I will pay for information (through paypal) leading to how I can get in touch with Bruno and for the items themselves, plus a hefty finders fee.

 

Thank you
