    Relics and Memories

    Was going through the boxes of old family photos i have been blessed to be left with and found a very interesting family treasure. This was sent days before my Uncle Ray was injured in combat on the 21st of Dec.44. He was awarded the DSC for his actions when he was wounded. I haven`t seen this card since i was a kid but i remember my father telling me they got the card the same day they found out he had been hurt. My uncle was bigger than life itself never met a man who loved life more. Everything is better than what he already went through he said. I just wanted to share a treasure of our families and wonder how many treasures are hiding away with the key people that know the stories dying every day. God Bless all Past Present and Future Veterans.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    Yeah they approved a post card with nothing on it Addressed from NY he was actually in Franceicon at the time and he was moved up during the Bulge. It`s sad i`m the last one in my family that would even know what this is if i passed now. The history being lost every day is priceless. I love how it was addressed to Mom, my Grandmother.

    I believe he was in Sicily and Italyicon also because he used to say how beautiful those Latin Girls were.
