    Default Marine trench art with Japanese items

    Here's a piece of 'trench art' that was possibly made by a Marine.

    The propeller tip is from a Japanese plane, and the two shells are navy marked in two places, with one of the marks being the same one as sometimes seen on Navy helmet liners.

    very cool, super creative
    What would you know about victory? I killed a she-wolf in her den, armed with only a knife. I escaped the Caughnawaga Indians who sought to burn me alive. And, I was the sole survivor of a shipwreck at the Battle of Havana. So you'll excuse me if I choose not to follow your advice." ―Israel Putnam speaking to a Continental Army officer at the Battle of Bunker Hill.
