Default Vet Bringback Lot

I was at War Relics Shop in Milford Delaware yesterday and viewed these items just brought in by a local family who's relative was stationed at a IJN Base during the occupation in 1945. These are just some of the items. There are also handwritten notes by the man to his family explaining what many of the items are. Here is a high altitude flight suit with all electrical connections and a heavyweight service uniform both mint.

This is interesting. It is a miniature propeller that looks like it was used to instruct pilots on propeller pitch. There are graduated numbers on each side of the hub for pitch degree with locking lugs and both blades rotate. It's about 2.5 feet long.
