The WWII Dining Room

Did something useful with that dining room in the house that never gets used. Used two shelves ($40 in wood and hardware from Home Depot) so I can display four torsos. Top right is an dress uniform for a plt sgt in the 75th Infantry Division. Dress cap is ID'd, I don't know if the jacket belongs to the same guy though. Bottom right ontop a 1942 dated ammo can is an Ike jacket for a staff sgt in 3rd Infantry Division, along with his O/S cap and dog tags. ID'd to Raymond E. Barker. Top left is my later war staff officer, I have close up photos of that display on another thread. And bottom left is a M1942 jump jacket belonging to a CPT in the 82nd. Can't wait to have some forum members over for dinner!!

Of course, this is only something a man would do. We have all thought about it, but you did it! :lol:

I would be drawn and quartered, tarred and feathered, and then raped, pillaged, and plundered if I tried something like that in our dining room! ;)

 

Looks nice though!

Raped? :lol: Anyway, the display is unique and creative, I bet that it's the only display here on the forum in the dining room. Nice one! :thumbsup:

Yippers. My whole living room with open, attached "formal dining" room is one big display area. Pros and cons to everything, and this is def one of the pros to being a bachelor!!!

 

 

Love the displays. Might have to adopt that method myself. :thumbsup:

My girlfriend and I had a talk about my collection. She said she told me it was OK if it was not all over a house, and limited to a room. At least she gave her consent to a dedicated room ! I have to remember that !

 

Great display.
