  1. Rt hand Ribbon top row is US. I have one as well. I had a reference for it not too long ago. It is relevant to derive in 1920s. More later if I find my reference.
  2. Hello, I am kindly looking for a translation of the inscription on a sword. Thank you.
  3. I take full responsibility! (thumbs up)
  4. I found this site - there were 120 or so DFS's awarded during WW2 to USMC aviators. This narrows it down some. Thanks again for the post I found this - I narrowed down the squadrons by eliminating the major campaigns like "Wake and Midway" and VMF-121 has 3 DFS recipients: http://www.ntxe-news.com/cgi-bin/artman/exec/view.cgi?archive=23&num=38286&printer=1 Robert M. Baker - did find anything that he stayed in the service Kenneth M. Ford - got out and got marries after the war William B. Freeman - makes sense but his obit has a typo retire date '54 should read '64. And there is a V-5 pin that came with the lot. Opinions?
  5. Wow- that provides a tremendous perspective. There are only a few WW2 squadrons as well. Any good sites with rosters? He retired on the east coast so that means pax river or cherry point. Thank you!
  6. A couple of local guys say to clean it up. Interresting to me to read the opinions. There is a jewelry cleaner that you can dip this is and it takes all the grime off. Then it will sparkle. In any case the jury is out. I don't know what I will do having several sets I like them clean and shiney.
  7. Hello, Is this jewelry or a pocket badge? Thanks in advance!
  8. Hello! Only negative in this group is it is not named. Enjoy! -George
  9. The army shield is bullion and looks ok was it embroidered on the hat or a separate piece of cloth? Looks to be 1902 pattern dress cover for a regular officer.
  10. Hi Peter, Good points. This is an officers EGA 10kt gold and sterling. Meant to be seen the black is tarnish. I am eager to see what others have to say. I am happy either way. Zoom in on the America's it looks brass but that is gold. Thanks! George
  11. Hi all, I have this and the collar emblems nice HH pattern Probabily 1930's. Would you clean the tarnish? If so how? I do not want to use paste if it is advisable. Thanks in advance! George
  12. Hi all, Happy New year! This is pretty odd looking definitely British Made. Its on a 4 pocket enlisted mans jacket with 8th and 20th air corps patches. Thanks in advance! George
  13. This is a nice looking display. Is the destroyer the one that resistance forces disabled in the fjords? Cheers.. George
