I thought this item from my collection would be of interest to the group. It is an M3 shoulder holster for the 1911 pistol inscribed Lt. William F Riley O-820063. There is also some graffiti drawn on the outside of the holster including "Hot Stuff" and "Spiten Death"

This holster was used by Lt. William F Riley of the 772nd Bomb Squadron. If anyone has photos of Lt. Riley especially if they include his aircraft I would love to see them and use them in a display with the holster as a tribute to him and his service.
