Re: Awards and Cleaning Kit

Yes, I agree with AK Forum stalwart msteve21, some more great items.  I've never seen a Japanese war diary in the German language before.  You've also picked up recently a couple of good British airborne uniform items.

Unfortunately there are no markets here where I live where these type of items would be available of a weekly basis.

Regards,

Markus.

Thanks guys. I only buy what I see and is cheap. It would suck not to be able to go find stuff and drive the cost of collecting way up.
What I got. Med cruse ash tray and Civil War Union voluvteer and P.O.W. papers. Rich A. in Pa.

Interesting items Rich, the boots look like they're in pretty good condition and as you would know have an age sought by Vietnam War militaria collectors.
