A few years ago I inherited some of my great grandfather's military things: a few uniform shirts, photos, his dog tags, ribbons, etc. There is one mystery ribbon-
It is the red and blue one with 5 bronze stars on it. No Idea what it is. I had randomly happened across a Felt patch on eBay, listed as "WW2 Original Colour Patch Headquarters, Allied Land Forces, South-West Pacific" (Also Pictured below) which is the same color arrangement. Any searching I did for this turned up nothing and I am also unfamiliar with this patch.
He started as an Lt in the army, later promoted to captain. He served in the Pacific for a time and was also stationed in Hawaii. Later he ended up in Germany, as far as I'm aware he was there thru the end of the war. He translated and had other duties which I cannot recall exactly. I believe he was involved with some sort of training operation in Germany as well.
I put together this shadow box as a preliminary display before I do something nicer.
