Very nice once again Jean.

The maritime museum and associations in and around Cape Cod should reach out to you if they haven't already..

You would make a fine exhibit specialist

HOBBIES AND OTHER INTEREST / Span-Am War MOH Sailor in 1/6

The latest addition to the 1/6 crew downstairs is Coxswain Benjamin Baker of Dennis, Massachusetts and the USS Nashville.  He was awarded the Medal of Honor for actions during the naval engagement at Cienfuegos, Cuba, in 1898, and is the only Cape Codder to have received the MOH.

Scott,

Sorry I'm late to the party, have been away.  As far as this posting goes I'm speech less.  Just stunning.  Good luck hope you are able to acquire some nice items for your museum.


   Thanks and glad you are back, I hope all is well.   Scott

  Thanks Smitty, sorry about the jaw ;)... Too funny! Its a huge collection in a very dark area of the building so hopefully I will get some better pictures in the coming weeks as we get more of the items sorted and organized.
   There is no guarantee as to how much of it we will get, but I think it will be a lot. At a minimum it looks like they are going to give me a decent 08/15 Maxim gun for our collection so that is good!
    Take care and thanks again!  Scott

Scott,

I have to type this and then go to the emergency room.. I just broke my jaw.. While looking at the pictures my jaw dropped to the desk and it broke... :o

All kidding aside. There are some remarkable items there in the few pictures you posted. The SS helmet is great.. I am so glad that you will be the new caretaker of these items..

Well done in assisting with picking these items up.

I'm sure you will be able to preserve these items.. You have a never ending rotation now of uniforms and equipment.. Looking forward to seeing what other treasures you unearth..

Well done Brother..

 More uniform racks to include some WWI Army and misc others. Not shown as they were blocked, are two full closets of WWI Army and USMC, a full closet of USAF as well as a wall of female USAF, and 5 more rolling racks to include more WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Cold War etc... We also found several 1870s uniforms and about a dozen Span-Am uniforms. I am excited to say the least!  Thanks for looking, Scott.

  Still many boxes of footwear, uniforms, fieldgear to sort. I did find two pair of WWII jump boots as well as many other nice sets of tough to find shoes and boots.
