Hi, I guessed that it would be best to post this here.....
I was wondering what the best way would be to display my new rifle that's arriving soon. I've seen some clear plastic stands on ebay but I was wondering if anyone has bought these and are they any good? Or is there any other places where I could get something similar that can be relied upon?
I've thought about making my own stand out of wood, but I'd rather buy something as I dont have many tools :p
I picked this up this weekend . The jacket is for a staff Sgt. with the Army Air Corps. He has aAir Corps patch on one shoulder and a US Army South Atlantic theater patch on the other. His ribbons are the good conduct, American Campaign,and ETO Campaign (ribbons by wolf-brown). He has the Technician Qualification Badge with 2 bars. He has 1 service stripe and four oversea service bars. On the other side he has a engineering specialst patch. His DI are for the Air Corps Tech school. This jacket also came with a named good conduct medal,two shirts ,and a pair of pants. Gary
Some folks told me, I have an M42 of the Wehrmacht-Luftwaffe and it´s a rare one, because without decals.
Do you agree ?
What´s your opinion ?
Thx. in advance,
I picked this fork up this weekend at a local show and my pal Rickyodicky was nice and gave me the plate cool militaria. I think they will go very nice together. Gary
Complete RAD Hewer rig reflecting the maker as Wusthof and RAD marks also has a issue # which was probably transposed to either the scabbard or hewer i.e. #510 or #150???. The leather as well as the scabbard are also marked with the issue office(BA - Beschafungs Ampt) of Fu with the german umlaut , this stands for Issue Office Fuerth, germany.The leather hanger is also marked with the maker and date in addition to the unit and issue point.In addition to being a complete rig both the Hewer and the Hanger were issued from the same RAD office/Point.

I've just bought a mixed bag of letters, photos etc, and these were among them, could someone plese tell me what exactly they are for?
First of all, I'd like to say what a valuable resource this forum and its members are to me.
I wasn't sure which forum to place this so I chose this one. Can anyone identify these W.W. II ribbons for me? Also, is there a web site available that can assist one in identifying ribbons?
Thanks in advance.
