    Thanks, Phil! All found today, but two different groups. The uploader jumbled up my photo order.

    This stuff was in a shoe box with: "Mr. Chickery's Army Stuff" written on it

    The commando style knife is in mint condition. Unfortunately, it's not wartime. It's marked CI 514 Japan

    Great finds - congratulations! I see that you now have the SS collar tab that you wanted - what a great way to get it!

    Un-boo-levable Joe!!!
    Hows that museum coming along?
    Between you and Rich in Pa there's a great military history project in the offing.

    Cheers, Dan

    I found records for a Carl Chickery who is from the area. He passed away in 1998. Can anyone help me find info on his service?

    Some amazing stuff, what people throw away. I particularly like the little triangular Japan-Italy-Germany pin on the yellow skull pennant! (Let me know if you want to find it a new home!) The Infantry badge looks excellent-a shame the backing on the Paratrooper is abit tatty, but it could be worse. Best clean up the oxidizing leather on the belts, though, before they are damaged beyond saving. Even found an SS tab and eagle! Can't beat that! Free is impossible to upgrade, hey? Some Very nice finds, for sure!

    Wow. I gotta stop buying lotto tickets and go dumpster diving
    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
