The section linked to is for re-enactors. If you go to the home page there's loads of stuff. Probably little bits of things even you 101st boys might have bought while at Aldebourne and Uppottery.

Online Catalogue from Sentimental Journey. You may need a lot of time to go through all this stuff. There is a lot, and I mean A LOT.

Prices in British pounds so can be a bit expensive, but if there are some eclectic things you need for your impression, this may well be the place to find them.

Got the 'Invasion' package from Sentimental Journey a little while back, the package consists of:

1 x Guide to France (this is hard to find);
1 x Letter from General Montgomery;
3 x Active Service envelopes
3 x Overseas forces envelopes;
1 x Card "First Aid for Fighting Men"
2 x NAAFI Camp tokens stamped;
1 x NAAFI Camp token plain;
18 x Invasion Currency- 2 x 5 Franc, 4 x 2 Franc, 3 x 1 Dm, 1 x 10Dm, 2 x 1 Lira, 2 x 2 Lira, 2 x 5 lira;
2 x Field Postcards

All are good quality and in my opinion worth the 16 pound ($35) price tag. The guide to France alone is worth that, historically speaking anyway, certainly gives you an idea of the attittudes of the day.

The is a good later addition to the kit, this paperwork group was issued to all servicemen prior to D-Day.

Cheers,

Glynn.

I'm always looking for free stuff and when I find it I post them. If anyone else runs across free stuff make sure you let me know and I will host/post them.

The bits I have are not free, you could scan them, but the quality would be reduced.

You have to find the right card, paper, paper colour, etc. yourself.

If they are original I (or yourself) have no problems scanning and creating a PDF but if they are replicas and they were purchased then I would not suggest duplicating them. If someone has put in the time and effort to create the repros then they should be paid for that work.

The stuff that you see on this website are PDFs that are shared among re-enactors.

I'm looking for photos of what the items look like. I'm willing to do the work required to make reasonable facsimilies, it helps if I know what I'm shooting for though.

I've made some rations based on these free ones, the brit labels aren't very elaborate so it really just takes an idea of what they look like: http://www.visualcollector.com/OBLI/Labels.htm

Though technically I guess this link should go in the rations section...however, as it has come up.
