    My name was given to me in the army. I was (so I am told) very good at rooting out things. One of my weapons and ammo finds in Ireland tends to back up this claim to fame.

    My uncle, Charlie Geanuracos, was in the 23rd Regiment, Second Infantry Division. He landed on D-day, second wave (several thousand 2nd ID men indeed landed on D-day in this role, even though the history books list the official date of the Division's debarkation as 6/7/44!) with an over strength rifle squad assigned to defend engineers dismantling beach obstacles, and fought as a front line soldier throughout the Normandy campaign and the Brittany campaign until his 3rd wound, suffered at Brest on 9/14/44, sent him home. He landed as a rifleman, but the BAR man in his squad was killed on 6/12/44. Charlie picked up the weapon as was the BAR man in his squad until he was, in his words, "knocked off" during the Brest fighting. He was called "The Heebie Geebie Greek on the BAR" by his buddies, all of whom were wounded or killed at out of action long before Charlie's "million dollar wound", because he loved to dance, and, as he described it, when he fired the weapon on full auto in the prone position, again in his words, "that son of a bitch had me hopping like a Mexican jumping bean!" He gave me my first helmet, a no decal M40, taken from the first Wehrmacht soldier Charlie "encountered" in Normandy, when I was 8. I became intensely focused on the history of the WWII as a result of my admiration for this gentle man who was forced to do, and endure, horrible things during his 3+ months of combat, and about 30 years ago, began to collect helmets. Hence, the handle, HELMET2ID, helmets, and the Second Infantry Division, "Second to None!" Jim G.

    Operaman-no, I haven't been to Sydney-it's on the other side of the continent from me & I haven't had a reason to go there-more of a general classical music fan myself but I love the Rossini overtures.
