    Also one of my favorites is a pair of WW2 Tanker boots he wore. Why he wore these I have no idea because he was a Medical Officer in a feild ambulence not a Tanker but Im glad he did because as a Tanker myself for 7 yrs I really treasure these
    If he did something like that today we would cut his strapsClick image for larger version.

    OK if I didnt have your attention before I think I will have it now since most collectors seem to be into TR here. Here is a Luftwaffe top he brought back. Sorry no pants. The EK1 I added just to see how it looks but will not keep it on since I always keep everything how I got it. It did however come with an EK2 witch I will post shortly.
