Check out the kill marks on this Flying Fortress. The B17 was called this due to the 12 .50 Caliber machine guns it carried.

Recently I have been really into the M4 High Speed Tractor. They were built by Allis Chalmers company during WW2 and were designed to pull either the 155mm long Tom or the 105mm howitzer. Would love to restore one at some point soon!

Here's another find I picked up along with my 14th Army Air corp patch. A whole ribbon bar complete with mini medals. The story I got was that they both came from the same estate sale.
