    Purchased this little dandy today. Measures 10' by 20' and is filled with burlap and jute. Also bordered with jute cord. Now I just have to find a place to hang it hmmm scratch

    Those are great looking nets... nice find. Only problem is that they usually smell quite a bit and are somewhat heavy which needs to be taken into consideration when looking for a place to display them. Personally, I like the smell of surplus. It reminds me of my early years of collecting when every find was so exciting. I wish I was still that excited by my hobbies.

    If I can find an artillery piece I can build myself a gun pit in the yard...might make the golfers across the street think twice before slicing into my yard. Shocked

    Hey Dale, you may be on to something there. BUT instead of trying to find a surplus field piece, do a mock up using PCV pipe and aluminum. Would be a great show stopper.

    I found four different tags on the net...three are severely ragged and faded but the earliest date I can see on one is a very faded 1945. This metal tag was probably added later since it has an NSN number on it. It doesn't smell too bad but it can make the war room reek a bit when the door is closed. And yep, this sucker is heavy.
