    I sincerely hope you all are enjoying this so far...much more to come if the interest is there...

    Please feel free to comment or question if you like. Let me know if there are certain items which you enjoy more, and I will include more detailed shots of those particular items. I definitely don't want to turn this into a mundane thread. I don't bite...well, I do actually, but in a good way.

    Many thanks for the reply. Well, I can say that I learned something today, I wasn't aware of the re-issue of US uniforms to the Polish...very interesting indeed.

    I have a Camp Sherman yearbook somewhere and it has photographs of graduates and instructors. I'm not sure what year it is but I'll check it and see if his picture is in there.

    Hi Gary,

    Thanks. I obtained this one from Scott Kraska, on on line dealer. He usually has a fair selection of WWI aviation items that he gets from well established and long time collectors. I was very fortunate to get this one when I called him.
