Can anyone enlighten me on this item? It appears to be a (1944 dated) fuze can of some sort. What would it have held? Someone turned it into a bank by emptying it of contents and applying a coin-sized slit on the lid.
Can anyone tell me which regiment or unit of the 11th airborne is represented by the oval patch? The wings are sterling marked and both patches were on the same (moth-ridden) uniform. Is this WW2 or Korea?
