Vintage Vietnam War era Chieu Hoi "Surrender" Bags

Chieu Hoi
( Click on the thumbnail above to enlarge photo)

A lot of people have asked about the bags that I ship the P-38s or P-51s in and they are called Chieu Hoi "Surrender" Bags.
They are vintage vintage Vietnam War era US GI Issue made to water proof a standard M16 20 round magazine but have a psychological warfare message written in Vietnamese on them. They would be dropped along the trail for Charlie to find and read. I've seen these same bags selling on eBay for $1 to $2 a bag.

The text on it reads:

"Returning Chieu Hoi will help you again see your parents and family in a peaceful and democratic Vietnam." 

Here's a link to a great website that describes the "Chieu Hoi" program in Vietnam:  http://www.psywarrior.com/ChieuHoiProgram.html

TWO WWII US ANDROCK P-38s IN UNOPENED WRAPPERS $19

TWO WWII US ANDROCK P-38s IN UNOPENED WRAPPERS
SORRY SOLD   $29  The Washburn Co. P-38s have the manufacturer's name (US ANDROCK) imprinted on them but no year marking. The rib on the main body of the Washburn P-38 also runs the entire length of the body but is slightly rounded at the very bottom. All these WWII P-38s are made from a slightly thinner metal and so feel just slightly lighter than the later versions. Other than these differences these WWII P-38s look identical to the modern P-38s and unless you knew what to look for you wouldn't be able to tell them apart. These have some rust showing on the wrappers. A cheap price for US ANDROCKs still in the wrappers. The shopping cart will figure $6.20 for shipping but if I ship US First Class mail shipping will be cheaper so I will put in a really good surprise vintage P-38 for the excess shipping collected. Thanks
