Just got fellow forum member Mike Kelso's new book today, and it is awesome.

I am not much of a shoulder board collector, but I find the book very interesting.

600 pages of great pictures of great stuff.

Highly recommend for everyone, I know he will have some at SOS

Mike you did a Hell of a job on this book!!

James

I ordered a copy from Mike the other day. Having seen some of the excerpts of the preliminary drafts, I am very much looking forward to receiving it.

Regards
Glenn

Thanks,

I just my copy and I think it is extremely well done. I have decided to acquire shoulder boards to match my helmets and I know this book will be my guide. Thanks Mike for a great reference book

The book will cost $99.95 plus shipping. Media shipping is $6 and Priority is $13.60. The book weighs in at 7 lbs.!




I accept Pay- Pal (makelso77@aol.com) or check. Please use "family" option.



See you at SOS.



Best regards,

Congrats Mike! I will be definitely checking this out at the SOS. Like Jim I have mainly concentrated on straps to match helmets in my collection. Thanks to Steve for example, I have an officer board to Dragoner 19 which is shown on our Logo. I will post a pic soon.
