That Old Army Uniform

Mom’s at it again – cleaning out the house.
She came across her father’s old World War II army uniform in the attic.
What does one do with such items? Why do we save them?
We discussed it and eventually she decided to donate the items.
I told her I’d like to photograph the items before she gave them away. In retrospect I kind of wish I had the items pressed and displayed on a mannequin. (I was afraid to apply the heat!)
My how the quality of clothing has changed. These pieces are sturdy wool and made so well and I think the fact that they’ve all last this long is a testament to that.
Lucky he made it home from the war!
