“Contents Of Gramp’s Footlocker”

B-ARFCOM user AR45fan has a great thread about his Grandfather’s foot locker and what was in it.

Gramps was an artillery spotter for the 612th Field Artillery Battalion. They served in the CBI theater and were the first to engage the Japanese in Burma. He flew an L-4 Grasshopper (Piper Cub). The artillery guys were equipped with mules and 75mm pack howitzers. It was pretty fucking primitive.

Yeah, I have that prop:

Some kind of surrender leaflet.

Christmas Leave pass.

Guy saved everything.  Beer tax stamps from Texas?
