VU-726   Absolutely the most historic Vietnam Grouping we have seen in years. Museum quality collection of artifacts collected directly from the "Son Tay Raiders" This Special Ops group attempted to free American POWs in North Vietnam in 1970. The initial grouping was obtained from Lt. Thomas Petrie, an Officer on the Raid. He provided some of his own personal objects used on the raid as well as some others he obtained from other "Raiders". He provided his shoulder Holster , Wrist Watch and Compass, which he used on November 20TH, 1970 Raid. He also provided a machete carried by Master Sgt. Other surplus items used on the mission and turned in included one of the pairs of handcuffs carried on Nov. 20THto restrain confused or hysterical POWs and one of the special Optical Sights purchased and used on the mission. He also provided a "sweat rag" used and most remarkably, a hooded poncho developed by Natick Laboratories, specifically to cover POWs in transit. They were going to be released at night and whisked away in helicopters. As they would have been dressed in rags, these special hooded ponchos were developed as well as "booties" made from the same materials. As of this writing there is only one of the 100 POW ponchos known to exist and THIS IS IT! The Air Force owns the only set of booties known to exist. In addition to these extremely rare artifacts are planning charts used to develop the mission  which were donated by a Lt. Colonel who commanded the lead helicopter, Apple 1, as well as an INCREDIBLE navigation map used on the mission into North Vietnam on the 20TH of November. Included is an original 1970 Sikorsky factory desk model of the helicopter the Pilot of "Apple 2" flew on the mission. This Lt. colonel also supplied th e2 original patches from the mission which are framed in the display. As can be seen in the photos, this exhibit and its owner took place in numerous "Son Tay Raider" reunions including the large 20TH Anniversary reunion in 1990 and was enjoyed by the famous men who participated in this daring mission. The final artifact is a sign removed from the side of a 1973 event sponsored by Ross Perot, celebrating the return of the last of the Vietnam POWs. This can also bee seen in the photo. There are hundreds of pages of rare copied photographs, reports, planning actions and after action reports as well as addition research from the Veterans. Truly a remarkable and historic group of which I can not say enough. Purchaser will be able to speak with the former owner who lovingly preserved this archive over the last 31 years,  to gather addition information. Don't miss this one!!!!!! $9,995.
