    The Pilot Chute. PT # 53J7205.

    Can anyone ID the bag with life raft? boat? I unfolded some of it and its all full of powder and has a cylinder inside for self inflation i believe.

    The Brass pots and ladle? No Idea What to make of any of it yet.

    The wood case looks to be japanese RPG? thanks for the help!

    I believe the Shells are trench art. from the SWP South West Pacific? perhaps how long the soldier was stationed? 45-49? Thanks a lot

    Thanks a lot everyone, I paid 10 dollars for the raft. and everything else was free...

    The life raft looks the right shape to stow in an ejection seat survival pack, the yellow box the pilot sits on. Could be a first start in identifying. The numbers on it look 'American'.
