The one inserted upside down in the AK?
The BREN with the AK mag stuck in it is interesting too.

Good Eyes

It seems their primary source of metals came from the sky. Unexploded ordnance and aircraft.

ETA: Yep, you found it too.

Also looks like a BAR on the wall and Grease gun in there as well.

The woods around here, Eglin Ranges are full of those cluster bombs.

I wonder if the helmets and such personal equipment came out of Lam Som 719, or were given to Vang Pao's people.
