Rock Island Auction is revving up for their September auction already, and they have a few blog post up today. Below is a picture I ganked from their new excellent write up on the 1st Special Service Force. This is the joint US/Canadian special operations force they cooked up in WW2. It is worth a read and it has some excellent militaria examples to go with the text. The picture below for example with this beautiful Colt M1911A1 and the fighting knife designed for and produced just for “The Force”.
