  1. Hey, Ricardo. Nice 1st Special Service group, but I do have one question, what is the fourragere for?
  2. I wouldn't dismiss it. As GIKyle said, could be from discharge. I think its commonplace for WW2 bars to be incomplete or odd because people were discharged before they got all their awards or never wore them so didn't arrange them.
  3. Hi! I have a question regarding the Philadelphia Quartermaster Depot. Aside from the obvious answer (that they make stuff for us) I'm curious to know their purpose in making things aside from normal military items. For instance, I've seen foreign flags from the 1960s, and '70s made by them. So, I guess my point being, why would they make flags of other nations? Is it for our purpose? Or can they put their services forward for other countries? Thanks, Nick
  4. Thank you guys for your input! Much appreciated. - Nick
  5. I think what I will do is just note he qualified for said medals, however, never applied or formally awarded.
  6. Good point. I'll just keep it original. Thanks for your input.
  7. Hi guys (and gals), I'm in a bit of a dilemma in regards to restoring my Great Grandfather's WW1 uniform. He was missing his medals, discharge stripe, and wound stripe. I got the appropriate victory medal, a discharge stripe, and a wound stripe that fit their ghosts perfectly. Later today I'm going to put them on. However, I got to thinking that he is missing a few more things, but I'm not sure if I should go through with it. First I was thinking of getting the Army of Occupation of Germany medal, however, he was never formally awarded it or even applied for it, but he does qualify. Se
  8. I'm trying to refurbish my Great Grandfathers uniform and he had a wound stripe. I just got a bunch of chevrons in the mail and one was gold. Is the gold one a wound stripe?
  9. Looking to get opinions on two ribbon bars I picked up. I think the Vietnam one is legit, but having doubts about the Merchant Marine one. The only good sign I see from the MM/USN bar is the black backing and lack of Good Conduct medal which would point to an officer. Thoughts?
  10. There are some moth holes and a tear in the fabric. Everything else is fine.
