Here I am trying another style of post for the Beta-testing phase! :super:

I have only one kind of non-fixed bayonet, a Pattern 1907 for my SMLE.

Here is a picture I found of such a bayonet from the web, because I want to try to link to an external picture.

Looking forward to the new forum, which I believe will be much safer and quicker than the old CSP. Thanks to all that have made this transition possible.

The photo is from my computer - click on it to enlarge. A nice feature and one that I am glad to see.

A square 10, .....[B-29s] I love um, My last job before i retired was to make sure that B-29 Z square 58 [Marilyn Gay], was properly put togeather
[Historically correct] for display here in GA. I had a great time doing it.
A-T-V-Z were in the 73rd Bomb wing--20th Air Force Stationed at Saipan.

yes sir - the avitar doesnt show it - my fathers crew is in the lower corner - their plane Asquare10 "our baby" made the cover of yank , she also survived the war , she is shown on hardstand saipan and the article was about their trip over the 'homeland' on dec 7th 1944 , just because we could , ive got some of his diary/letter notes referancing this but not at hand ,

he is bottom row -third from the right , he was the left waiste gunner , and electrician on the ground crew ,

i adopted this handle because he was the one that introduced me to the world of milsurps and shooting , i inherited his collection-and have been adding to it ever since 2000 , he died 11/11/00

im sure it was some carma error on your part , as the aircraft you refer to is the 'enola' gay , flown by tibbits [who just passed away last year incidently] named after his mother , off the island of tinian a short hop from saipan across the channel , the carma referance is that my mothers name is marilyn , and you caught me with that ...

tinian was the other base of the 73rd & 58th , the 20th air force was a definite influence on my childhood and and i dont meet all that many that recognise what you have ,

my father did have the privledge of flying with morgan[memphis belle fame] in a flyover of the marine cemetary on saipan shortly after they were deployed there , morgan flew the lead ship in the formation that day , it was also published in one of the publications of the time , most dont know that morgan left europe and assumed a command position in the pacific ,

PS if you look close at the AAF holster in the top of my cabinet - my fathers , you will see the patch of the 20th , he gave it to me when i was quite small - ive kept it close

i dont have his service pistol[a colt originaly till stolen - then an ithica] , it was turned in at the time , but i have the 1918 colt 1911 he bought in the early fiftys from a close friend of his fathers who brought it home , the other holster was this mans from 1918 ,

and i have a nice ithica 1911A1 that is what he ended up with on saipan - he had looked for one , as had i , but i didnt find it till after he was gone ,

A square 10, Please don't confuse the name Marilyn Gay, with Enola gay, The Enola Gay flew out of Tinian, The Marilyn Gay [Z Square 58] was assigned to Sipan with the 883rd Bomb Squadron The 'Square" indicates the 73rd Bomb Wing, Saipan was exclusively 73rd Bomb Wing territory.
Any way, Thats a great story about Your dad and his plane. Just saw your pic's of some of your collection, WOW!

i apoligize , i see what your saying , thats a very nice momento , 27 bombing missions , 3 kills and 5 POW supply drops [i believe]

i did check before i spoke , in both my 20th AAF albumn and my 73rd wing albumn and didnt find her there amoung the nose art ,

you are correct in that Z square 58 would be 500th and that the 497th[dads bomb group] 498th , 499th and 500th were all at isley feild on saipan , i didnt really mean to challenge but rather i thought there was a chance for confusion ,

i knew the 313th and 58th were on tinian ,

i have another source for looking them up , ill check it out to see what i can learn , maybe i can find out more about Z square 58 ,


i realise we hi-jacked this thread big time but , oh well
