This week we look at WW2 Kit Memorabilia on Author Memories.
My husband, Little Nelson, smiles whenever he talks about Big Nelson. They spent hours playing cards together with the family. Big Nelson passed away a few years after Little Nelson joined the military and shortly before I came on the scene back in the mid 70's.
Uncle Nelson's WW2 Memorabilia
by Anita Mae Draper
As for these items, I've posted photos of manufacturers and identifying symbols wherever I could. If anyone has any information about these items, please leave a comment.
The Cartridge Belt
it was issued together or if the belt was a personal effect:
These next 4 photos show the still-working compass.
Brass Powder Flask
Again, if you have any information on the above items, please let us know. Uncle Nelson was in the Canadian Army but most of the equipment is American manufactured. Presumably different governments bought their supplies from the U.S.
What do you think about all this?
