    Thx for all the pics Betty.

    I had to chuckle seeing the horse gas mask - I have seen a pic of it before and somehow it looks real goofy!

    Oh and yeah - bamboo helmet - great protection !

    Thanks for the pics, Betty!

    Being a horse lover, that gas mask photo kinda gives me the creeps...can't (dont want to) imagine taking a poor dumb beast into that kind of environment

    Betty,
    I have been to Pigeon Forge many years ago but there was no museum then. Thanks for the pix, I enjoyed them. I may have had one of those WWII toy rifles. I remember having some type of toy rifle. Details are hazy now, but the pix sparked a memory. Thanks again.
