  1. Lets not forget Leland Lou Diamond who enlisted in 1917 and fought in all battles with the 6th Marines in France and who also served with the 5th Marines during the Battle of Guadalcanal at the of 52 in 1942.
  2. Saw this badge on ebay and research brought me here. There wasnt a whole lot I could find about the insular patrol in google. This looks to be the same as in the ohotos best I can tell. From what I read there were 12 posts I think in the villages and towns in Guam that had Insular Patrol stations. This looks to be from #6.
  3. Thank you and nice group! I always enjoy seeing an authentic George Medal. Would it be possible to post clearer pics of the front and back of the medal? Seeing as this has the paperwork to go with it, it would be good to have a genuine example for which people could gauge copes/originals against.

  7. Howdy Ya'll, A number of years ago, I purchased a Japanese map of Iwo Jima picked up during the battle by a PFC Savage from 5th Engineer Battalion. I haven't seen but a couple of these on the internet but from what I have heard it is printed on some sort of rice paper I believe. It feels more like tissue paper to me, but nonethe less it is quite fragile. I was wondering what should I be doing to preserve this? Currently I have it rolled up in a cardboard tube in a clear plastic sheet. Any suggestions? Also any ideas on who the other 2 names on this may be? I can read PFC Savage eas
