I obtained this set of dogtags from EBay a couple weeks ago. The seller had them split into 2 lots. I won the POW tag lot and another person won the other lot. By chance we figured out who each other was and made a deal to reunite the tags. Thank you USDog!

S/Sgt Ernest Hall was a gunner with the 459th BG shot down on a mission to Budapest on April 3, 1944. I was able to validate the gefangenummer on the POW dogtag was issued to him.


Glad you were able to get them back together, superb collection of items and ephemera.

Great tag, but if he was with the 109th Inf, that would have been 28th Division...

29th Division Inf Regts were 115, 116 and 175 in 1944

 Sorry, typo. I just fixed it. Thanks!
