I promise you this is not a rant, more of "I told you so" but lately across a few forums peeps have been "found out" with their dirty deeds.
A particular thread that is ongoing and a hot topic touches things that I knew were going on 5 years ago, I did try to warn people .................but because I'm a no-one, I got shunned. KARMA is such a wonderful thing
......................... I have been dealing since the early 70's, and in all that time I only ever saw 5 SS helmets that I was comfortable with. Virtually every show has one, or two, and the amount of camo helmets beggars belief! (BTW the items I'm talking about are NOT SS helmets, that's been said and buried)
I find it strange that in this day and age, people knowledge is being shunned because it is "not in the book" I can tell you that a lot of things that are in books are fake. A certain "high end dealer" who will remain nameless had more than a few items that were considered "rare" No-one felt obliged to question where they came from, because it was "him" it must be right. Karma..... is such a wonderful thing...........................
"Don't tell me they would have worn that" I hear it a lot, and believe me being ex forces out in the field and in 2 wars, I can tell you just about anything goes. As long as you can stay alive, and dodge the dirt, you really don't care what it looks like. "shape shine shadow silhouette etc"
Maybe it was a rant, but I feel better. Nothing like a bit of "told you so" brings a smile to ones face
