Hi all! I've been reading a lot of the posts in this forum and I am really impressed by the knowledge here. In WWII My father was a Ranger in the 2nd Battalion that landed on Omaha Beach. Their objective was the guns at Point Du Huc. He's never really talked about it much until we recently watched Saving Private Ryan. He said the movie came real close to depicting what it was like during the landing. Not too long after the conversation he gave me a 1911 Lugr he took off a German Officer. I haven't reserached all the markings yet but their are some on the front of the handle I was hoping someone could decipher for me. They are B.3.A.F.1.15. Can anyone give me a little history primer?
