    Not true at all.

    They have ave a huge collection of Thompsons.


    Whatever remains is a shadow of what once was . . . most of them are in Davy Jones locker.

      That's the same excuse we will all use when it comes down to it. Fell out of the boat....

          Not a Ruskie. Most likely G.I. WW2 early Pacific theater.
          Note the pleated pockets and double button at bottom of front. The buttons looks like the 13 start stamped metal ones. First pattern HBT.

          Button detail on same pattern shirt

          Addenda: An image search places the Lewis gun photo at Buna late '42 early '43. The G.I. most likely a member of the 32nd Infantry Division.

          Exercise the Bill of Rights. It's good for your Constitution.
