Things don't make the man, but a mans things can tell you a great deal about him. My grandfather, Stanley West served in WW2 in Germany. These are some of the things he carried everyday as a soldier. He got the pistol in Europe, not sure where. He made the knife out of a handle off a Germans house and the blade out of a part of farm equipment. He pinned the locket with his wifes picture on one side and his two sons on the other. He also carried a whistle and the small pocket dictionary you see in the back. The belt buckle was a German soldiers. The frame he brought back, without ever putting a photo in it. I put his picture in it when it became mine. You also can see his dog tags and few uniform pins. What does this say about my Grandfather? I will let you decide, but for me, he is my grandfather. Thats enough.....
