No matter what, the man's son will have something his Dad carried in WWII be it sling, stock, etc and the work done to find the family was noble indeed and a great Christmas gift. You did not have to do it but you did and I take my hat off to you. I would love to have been in the family's shoes. Don't let the Grinches get you down.
jeeperbob confused this posting with my posting on the D-Day stock...
Regardless, I appreciate your comments.

Always wondered about what happened to the guy named pock. Does my story make me a liar because people might be jealous or skeptic of my good fortune. I can tell you that I'm secretly dating Morgan Fairchild, yea, yea, but then I would be telling a lie. The carbine is for you to believe or not, the only ones that know for sure are the carver and the lucky finder. I sure wish I would have gotten it.
Not many ball point pens around during WW2
