Mid war...
Hi Jerry....I like your mid war display. Maybe you can help me with a few things? I'm a Marine Corps Emblem collector but was given several things belonging to the late Bernie Hines. I know that he was in the Flying Tigers. The things I received are: A silk flag like the one you have in the display. A bunch of silver India and Berma coins. A very small compass. A booklet of 101 songs you love to sing. Several nice patches(some like the one you have stitched in silver thread)

A 1911 Infantry Drill Regulations (small blue book) and a small gun sight looking thing and a carved cigar box with the letters A C B on the front and a carved blue and red plane on the lid. At this point I have not taken any pictures but will try. Do you think that these things are something collectable. Like I said I collect EGA's and have no clue about this stuff.

 

Thank you!!

I can't send a reply or picture today for some reason. I will have my son look at it.

 

The flag is like yours but has 17 languages with english in the top center.

As soon as I can send pictures I will.

Jerry_K,

 

You have an amazing collection and display. My personal collection is mostly army & navy aviation(WW2). This thread just completely blew my mind. I have a small collection compared to you, but it is something. Have several flying helmets I want to sell. Can't post in the for sale forum yet 'cause I am new around here.

Hi Jerry,

I'm a new forum member and being a collector of US Naval Aviation items I caught up with this thread. I was absolutely and thoughly impressed with your items and the talent you have for display. When I am capable of posting "New Topics" I'll post photos of a few of my more interesting USN flight helmets. Again, very impressive, thanks for sharing.

Always looking for 4th Fighter Group and 490th Bomb Group items.

Hi everyone.

I'd like to share with you a great website about US NAVY AVIATION equipment and clothing from World War Two. The author of the site is a good friend of mine pararaftanr2. I think it would be the best source of any information about this subject. For sure all of this information there, will be covered in book(in future) but for now we have a website: http://pilotsmanyourplanes.com/

Enjoy and any comments will be appreciated.

The best regards,

Jerry

Way to go Jerry I'm really glad you finally found one. I couldn't make out the number on it and if it had an NXS before it but I can't remember if mine had one either or if they even put the letters on the penlight like other WW II items. I still don't know why the USN in WW II never dated items like the USAAF did.
