Hi, small selection from our Vietnam collection. Will post more later.

The boot and bits in the case was found at Kha sanh in 2008.

Siemic sensor found at War and Peace show in 2010.....£70!!!

Have been collecting for around 14 years.

Picked up some great stuff in the Nam. Still there but getting harder to find.

The case with the boot in it, is that All the stuff you got from Khe Sanh? If it is I think you were snookered. There is a post Vietnam US Army PFC rank in there.

The boot and the shrapnel where found on the Battle site. The rest was bought from the museum staff for $5 so we where not to unhappy to be ripe off for 25c for a 70,s rank pin. Got to take the rough with the smooth! (sogmanjoes Dad).

Hi Tim, sorry i didnt get back to you sooner. Unfortunately none of the 173rd patches are for sale. Original genuine subdue 173rd patches seem hard to find and are expensive. If I come across any I will contact you. Hope you find what you need.

Cheers. Dean. ( sogmanjoes Dad).

It must fun be trying to find relics left in Vietnam. I could use a fair to good used condition bamboo hat for my collection. All I can find is new made ones. L.T.
