The Liberator was not carried by air crew. They were designed to be dropped to resistance fighters. They were design as a temporary weapon so the user could obtain a better weapon. Here is a good article on them:

Thanks Tanker

That is some very good info on this topic!

What about the gold coins!

Were they sewed in jacket and blood chit ripped off to be given in event of to help US pilots!

Were just pilots given them? Or a crew!

I do not remember the story!

Interesting to say the least!


Western Union Telegrams were something I have been wanted to discuss also!

Not sure when they started! WW2 and before the internet this was the fear of every family to get the knock
on the door!

I like to think many things to discuss!

I believe all aircrew received them. They were well controlled though.

"World War II United States Navy Escape and Evasion Barter "Atlantic Kit". The contents of the sealed hard rubber kits varied in contents, they were developed for use in Europe and Pacific theaters and they were issued to certain airmen. Referred to as "barter kits" for use in case of an emergency landing or bailout in an unfriendly or primitive area overseas. The airman could barter in aiding escape and evasion in difficult situations by local civilians. The kits being of such value were a controlled item and each kit had its own serial number. They were accountable, and the airman had to sign for each kit upon issue and return as instructed if not used. Note: Gold value during this time period was approximately $25 per ounce market value."

How could a person collect anything WW11, and not like this stuff, something wrong if they do not.
Thanks for showing all.
I'd post some stuff, but got the computer and service from hell. I have a terrible time at putting something on Craigslist.
Neat stuff guys.

Ok Tanker

Couple days!

EdThanks for looking!

I have always liked the stuff!

Yrs ago,If I did a show,I knew german sold!! Those collectors put the cash out!

US guys were slower going to the pocket!

Now I can sit back and enjoy things I have seen,owned and can learn about and enjoy!

The hobby of military costs money! Even back in the golden age of collecting!

I like lots of stuff but my wallet does not! Go figure!!!!!!


Now if I can get collectors to share and talk! Thats fun!

Ed if you need pics posted send them!

If you can't just look and talk!

Thanks to all!
