Hello

Picked up a grouping of Marine items and most of the items are ww1 related except the dogatgs?

The tags are ww2 issue correct?

I  tried to find some info on the Marine to see if he served ww1 thru ww2.

The one tag looks earlier than the other with some Xs stamped on the bottom?

Thank you very much

Tony
