Nice... one of the museums in Manila could have benefited from it. I wonder where in Manila we could find items like this... There is a shop in the Shangrila mall where they sell a lot of antiques, old paperwork, magazines, documents, postcards, etc. The only militaria item I found was a rare black colored (I forget the material) US army canteen. I didn't know much about it at that time but it was only later that I found out that it was a rare item.
