Just a great grouping of items to the Signal Corps Carrier Pigeon service in WW2. Consisting of the following: one double and two single wood pigeon transport cages, the double with metal tag, dated 1944. an A/B pigeon carrier, 6 message capsules, one 1943 dated map overlay pack with 2H pencil, 3 tin feed/water trays for cages (rare), wrapper for feed/water tray & message holders, one unopened pack of map overlay pad, 2 pencils and 1 message book and two folded sheets of message paper. Truly hard to find stuff, all for one money.
A super nice looking Canadian Pilot Uniform grouping, consisting of Tunic, trousers, overcoat and visor cap, all made by "Burberry's" of Canada. The tunic has a beautiful Pilot wing, Flight Lt. sleeve stripes and ribbons for Canadian Defense and Canadian Volunteer Service w/Overseas Service, Maple Leaf Device. There is also a Red Wedge Hat, for those aircrew members who just joined the RCAF and needed more technical physics & mathematics training. They were sent to McGill University in Montreal, Quebec. A great looking grouping in around a size 36.
Right out of the woodwork, a super hard to find M-35 single decal Kriegsmarine helmet, hand painted in battleship grey, as used by shipboard gun crews. Original liner and chinstrap, named on inside to: "Kemptner". Marked inside NS64 (Vereinigte Deutsche Nickelwerke) in Schwerte, also marked DN76 by man's name. The outline of the single decal can be seen through the paint on the left side, the liner is original to the helmet and is dry with some damage. Just a great looking hard to find helmet.
