This is a stunning lot of uniforms and documents with provenance to James L. Stamper ( 82ND Airborne). James Stamper made entered the Army in 1941 and was made Corporal in 1942. He entered the paratroopers at Fort Benning in february 1943 were the 507th Parachute Infantry Regiment was stationed. In december 1943 the 507th was attached to the 82nd Airborne Division and moved to the U.K. in preparation of the Allied Invasion of Europe. Stamper returned to the U.S.A. in may 1944 after action in Casablanca (North Africa) and Gela in Sicily were he had his first combat jump.
This grouping consists of a nice used example of a M42 jump jacket and trousers marked with laundry numbers and still fitted with Original and fully matching waist belt. Both jacket is trousers are in nice yet used condition with a minor stain on the arm. There is no size in the trousers but meassures approx 30-32 waist. In addition there is a Class A jacket badged with Parachute Qualification Wing fitted on an Airborne Command oval and shoulder patch for troops under supervised training of the Airborne Command 507th Regiment and staff sergeant stripes.
With the documents is a scrap book with minor tekst other then the action described above, a bible which is named to Cpl. Stamper, civil wallet executed in typical North African goats letter (and often encountered with veteran bring backs who served in North Africa) with pictures and invasion money, telegram and a written letter to his parents. There is also an orignal 82nd Airborne formation patch with this grouping. Interesting enough there is also programme of a Regimental Christmas d.d. 25 december 1944. In this programme Stamper had been promoted to Staff Sergeant and was a member of the Cadre of Company M, 2nd Parachute Training Regiment. Suggesting he made further career in the army after returning to the U.S.A.
Next to the documents is a Original set of dog tags, used condition and unbadged garisson cap as well as a boxed Purple Hart medal.
This is a truly nice set of U.S. 82nd Airborne history.
British Airborne MK1 Paratrooper Helmet BMB 1942 With Helmet Net - Nice Used Condition
A truly nice example of the iconic British Airborne Helmet. This particular model compromises a MK1 model fitted with fibre rim and leather chinstraps. The helmet has been overpainted after it had been stripped and has been executed very well with a truly nice patina on this helmet. The helmet liner bears various names most likely been reissued. The liber is in clear used condition, clearly makers marked BMB , dated 1942 and sized 7. Interesting on this helmet is the leather chinstrap. Compromising two different chinstrap models one fitted with riffets and the other being stitched. Although not widely known this was a practice done during the war. One off our Battle of Arnhem Medic helmets in our private collection we have encountered the same. This helmet can be found as reference in the British Airborne Helmet Book Daniel Fisher and Oliver Lock. We have also encountered this practice on various dug up helmets we have seen in the past. The helmet is fitted with Original helmet net and camoflage. A truly nice MK1 Airborne Helmet that can be upgraded.
