Awesome uniforms Bones, keep 'em coming! I wish I had some of these.

Btw, the middle bottom ribbon you asked about is the WWI Occupation ribbon. It's commonly seen on WWII uniforms for soldiers who went right into occupation duty; they and the PX saw that as the occupation ribbon, so they wore it.

I have always had an interest in Korea war era uniforms. For 1 when I started out there was very little interest in the Korean war and 2 the uniforms have some quality bullion patches on them that could be purchased fairly cheap. I have not forgetten them. Manner of fact I am currently reading the 1st Cavalry Korean Unit history. Here is a 8th Cavalry troopers uniform. DI's are Japanese made.

Now that's interesting....I would say the para badge is added but the rest is all good.

Unless this is a uniform worn by the one stick of 40th ID paratroopers that made a secret midnight drop into China during the Korean War! xD

This guy must have wanted everyone to know he was in Korea. Served with the 24th ID and then with the 9th FA battalion of the 3rd ID. Has red trimmed everything with an unauthorize combat artillery badge. If only his CO could see him now.
