He is another display I set up for the Tri State Warbird museum a couple of years ago honoring World War II Army Air Force Mechanics and support personnel.

A display in Maastricht (the Netherlands) in September last year during a local exhibition.

In September 2009, it was 65 years ago that Maastricht was liberated.

Here is a small MG pit display I did earlyer this month.

 

It's not much, but it's what I had along.

For living history events I tend to shy away from blanket displays.

Rob, the bread wasn't mine. Neither was the 1919, ammo can, or food can to the left.

Everything else was mine.
