  1. Hello & thank you! I just purchased that book and found that same reference last night! I have seen some photos with it applied during the war but very few. Thanks again!
  2. I was thinking about it and the only thing I can come up with is that this is a pouch to hold 4- M-127A1 Parachute Signal/Illumination Flares. Anyone else???
  3. I brought this home from Afghanistan with a lot of other Aussie field gear I traded for but do not remember what it was used for? Any Aussie field gear experts out there? Each of the 4 pouches measures closed flap - 13" x 2.5" x 2.5" and each pocket is 7" deep, its not for AR or AUG mags! Any help appreciated. Cheers
  4. Greetings Gentlemen, Does anyone know when the USMC started stenciling the EGA on their helmet covers? Was this done in WW2 or later. Attached is a photo of my Father's issued USMC helmet cover. He served 1957-60. Thank you for any info & Semper Fi! Vince
  5. Thanks for the input. Can anyone post an order of precedence chart for Japanese medals? Thank you!
  6. Not the answer I was looking for. Just a medal precedence question. Thanks!
  7. Hello again, Are these medals in the correct order of precedence on this medal bar? Is there a chart somewhere which shows the correct placement order for Japanese medals on their medal bars? Thanks, Vince
  8. Hello to all, I recently acquired this OST on a medal bar and am not familiar with the reverse attachment screws found on the 3 & 9 o'clock arms. Can this Order be dated from these screws? Thank you, Vince
  9. Many thanks for your expert advice. Japanese orders are new to me and I would really like to limit my mistakes as these can be expensive. Do you sell such orders and medals? If not can you please recommend a reliable dealer. Thank you again, Vince
  10. Greetings, I was wondering if there is any truth to the story about this order being post 1945 if there are no rivets on the reverse of the arms? I only want to collect pre-1945 orders and am requesting help in understanding this matter. Does it also apply to the 3rd Class order as well? Many thanks, Vince
  11. Many thanks to both Gentlemen who answered. Happy Holidays, Vince
  12. Greetings, Can anyone tell me why some award boxes have gold writing and others have silver on their covers? Is one older than the other, a different class of award or just maker's differences? Many thanks, Vince
