A Flea Market Merchant Marine find


Recommended Posts

Yeah- I checked- but made by Bangor, Maines' best tailor in the 1940s.

The ribbon bar really speaks to me- the USNR ls medal followed by the merchant marine campaign ribbons and lastly the Philipene liberation award (which I did not know the merchant marine qualified for). Merchant marine stuff is rarer than Hens' teeth and really hard one considering the casualty rates. I always thought it a Congressional insult they did not qualify for the WW2 Victory medal.
