I got the idea for this thread from Robb over at The Colonel's Cache. I've just recently focused my collecting on GO uniforms and am greatly enjoying it.


For starters is the Ike jacket of Lt. Gen. Daniel Noce, Inspector General of the Army 1952 -1954. This was purchased from a fellow forum member.

As I have told Schottsie (now CNYmilitaria), collecting attributed GO material is really addictive.

I see there is more Peltier stuff on eBay right now.

Latest addition:

Service cap of Brigadier General Paul Krause.

Krause enlisted in the US Army Corps of Engineers in 1941 and became a surveyor at Fort Clayton in the Panama Canal Zone. He entered the aviation cadet program in 1942 and received his navigator wings in September of 1943. Krause was then assigned to the 77th Troop Carrier Squadron of the 435th Troop Carrier Group. He was in the first wave of C-47s to drop paratroopers into Normandy during the D-Day Invasion. Krause also participated in the liberation of Holland, the Rhine River Crossing, and the aerial resupply of Bastogne.

In 1949 he became a radar navigator on the B-50 Super Fortress. Krause later served as chief of the Air Training Branch, 43rd Bombardment Wing. In 1966 he was assigned to Strategic Air Command as chief of the Avionics Division. Krause then assumed command of the 321st Strategic Missile Wing in 1970, part of the Minuteman Missile Program.

Another fine addition! I am assuming this was from one of the recent ebay listings from this general?

It was indeed! I noticed two sellers with his items, both from Texas. There must have been a recent estate sale. That said, I question the mess jackets they are saying were his as the initials in one don't match the General.

I liked the set of fatigues they have listed but I felt $125 was a bit much. This cap seemed like a fair price though so I jumped on it.

I agree, the color insignia fatigue shirt was just on the border for me pricewise, but decided against it. Great pickup though!
