Cleaning Out a house I found this photo in an album and the DI in a jewelry box.

I don't know if they are related and think the DI is post war.

It says France on the back of the photo.

The other pieces in the picture did not come with this group.

No one knew who it was.

Opinions and comments are welcome.

Good chance this man is a D-Day vet.

 

 

An appropriate day to remember him.

I like the DI, personally I think its ww2, although maybe it could be the Occupational period.  ASMIC lists Gemco making this design for the 501st Airborne Regiment durring the war in a plastic model.  They also list it made by Meyer and Emblem Supply Co. in enamel post war but don't list Gemco as making it post war.
