"The Gods Must Be Crazy" Museum Version...
« on: September 20, 2019, 09:43:57 PM »
  For anyone familiar with the film mentioned in the title you will understand the rederence . For those not familiar, basically a Coke bottle survives a fall from an airplane flying over Africa. It lands near a tribesman and he sets out on a spiritual journey to return it.
  Well, apparently things like this happen! Today as I arrived at the museum from picking up items at a veterans post that is closing, this green box was in the parking lot. Did it come from the sky? From space? Was it beamed down? I will never know apparently.
  An examination of the contents leads me to believe it was teleported through the space time continuum, originating in the Great War and making a brief layover during part 2 of that war. I draw this conclusion as surely no sane person would leave such treasures unattended would they?
  In all seriousness, this was what I found in the box and it made my day! Not only for what was there, but for what wasn't I mean after all, it could have been a Honey Badger!    Scott

  A nice camo WWI Helmet with the AEF or 3rd Army ssi painted on the front as well as another with just a bit of the 3rd Army ssi remaining. A French shell painted white a very long time ago, and a 43 dated musette bag as well as a 42 dated M1928 pack with the meat can pouch and a blanket inside.

  But the best piece by far was this WWI German helmet with the liner intact as well as most of the chinstrap! Not perfect, but pretty awesome for falling from the sky!     Scott

   Its really been a great ride Smitty. One strange thing that seems to be happening this year is many items are coming in September. Usually we get hit in the Spring as the weather breaks and people do their Spring cleaning. But no complaints on my end!    Scott
