    These are the only items I got other than the two swords. All in pretty poor condition from being kept in a garage since the war.

    I hate to keep bringing this thread back up but I thought you guys might enjoy seeing the Muster rolls for Virgil. He was indeed in Japan for occupational duty so I think that solves the mystery of how he souvenired the Formosa sword.

    Just finished the final display. I made the decision to take off one of the patches off Virgil's uniform. It had multiple major holes in it and there was no name in the jacket. It also had a pretty bad musty smell.

    I decided I'm going to sell the Formosa sword so that is why its not in my display. I'm more of a combat collector and I think someone else will enjoy it more. I'll give the chance to the buyer if they want to have his other uniform & blanket. I hate to break apart a grouping but at least his name will be passed on to the new owner.

    Thanks again everyone for your help, I couldn't collect without you guys
