  1. Nice one, it is pre-WWI to early WWI (wire thread on it). Was the the baystate one? If so he enlisted in 1916 (born in 1897, died in 1974)
  2. I've seen several enlisted white jumpers with the white ruptured duck sewn on. It just isn't something you see on each on because as far as I know only one white ruptured duck was issued, while sailors had several white jumpers (they would not have applied the patch to each one, just the one they needed to wear home). Also remember that it depended on which Naval District you were in/being discharged from as to what your required uniform would be. Different areas of the country would wear whites/blues depending on season and orders.
  3. Sure it is 1930s? Probably Ambrose Bernard Cote, enlisted June 6, 1917. Navy service 122-81-39 https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/85004907/ambrose-b_-cote
  4. Clive Cussler passed away last Monday, besides being a noted author, he had an interest in classic cars and shipwrecks. He served in the US Air Force during the Korean War. RIP
  5. Donald G. Stratton passed away in his sleep last night, surrounded by his family. Such sad news. Donald Stratton was a survivor of the port gun direction on the USS ARIZONA. Rest in peace sir, you have earned it.
  6. Great display. It's important to put the items into context so everyone can learn, and you did a great job of that.
  7. Most of the other awards were created later, but were retroactive. I suppose if you used newer regulations to see what awards he would have been issued, some of those would show up because of their being retroactively applied.
  8. WWII nurses are really tough to research. Was the name you posted her maiden (unmarried) name, or her married surname? She would have been single when she first became a nurse, so the registers from 1945-46 would probably list her under her maiden name.
  9. Hi, if you have ancestry (or I think Fold3) his New York WWI service abstract is available online. That is where the information came from. Happy that it helped you!
  10. Hi, definitely WWI period. When I saw this, I figured the first letter was not an 'H' but a 'B', so did a little digging and here you go: Barry Hayes Piggott Born 1896 NY state Died 1976 New York Enlisted July 17, 1918 USNRF at recruiting station Buffalo, NY Served: NTS Great Lakes 7-20-18 to 8-12-18 Naval Operating Base Norfolk VA. 8-12-18 to 8-23-18 USS Kentucky 8-23-18 to 11-11-18 (keep in mind this date is pulled from his NY service card, and so it only shows dates between April 6, 1917 and November 11, 1918 for the most part. Discharged July 14, 1919 at Receiving Ship New York. His highest rank was Engineman 1st Class.
  11. Too nice of piece to worry about the nibbles, outstanding artwork.
  12. Pretty nice, have not seen one. If I am not mistaken, Troy Houston Middleton was working for LSU until he resigned to rejoin the Army after Pearl Harbor was attacked.
  13. Very cool, Merry Christmas! Figures a shortlived unit would have such nice artwork, must be rarer than hens teeth.
