  1. I have a question about the M26 Spec 8-31A-D. I have run across several 8-31’s without button holes on the “rolled lapel”. Further, I have run across 8-31s with button holes only on the upper “rolled lapel”. Finally, I have run across 8-31s with button holes in both the upper and lower “rolled lapel”. right now I have a 1st Filipino Infantry Regt tunic dated 1936 without any button holes on the lapel. This would be a M1926 Spec 8-31B. I also have an 11th Cavalry that has all 4 button holes dated 1935. This would be a M1926 Spec 8-31B too. Both tunics have PQMD tags. Did the PQM
  2. This piece would definitely date to after WW2, approximately x > or = to 1956. X=year of production. I have found a lot of reference to the 747th Transportation Group(Railway) right at 1956. Rayon wasnt used/authorized until 1956 with US flags per regulation. It was authorized along with silk per Eisenhowers request for an Army flag. The colors would be closer to Transportation than any other group type. The red is very close to brick. I purchased this piece as Artillery thats why I focused on Artillery. I contacted the original owner and they apologized for the mistake and stated it
  3. I must say thank you all for your assistance. I was looking into Ordnance & train transportation too. This piece is rayon. Colors do fade & change drastically with these type of flags. As a group flag would this take the place of a Battle Standard? Or does this act as a Standard for the grouping?
  4. Im guessing everyone is as lost as I am on this one. I can only find information as a 774th Field Artillery battalion up to 1946.
  5. I recently purchased this 3' x 4' 774th Field Artillery flag. It's made of rayon with a small square tag worn white (like many used PQMD flags). Anyway, I can find information about the 774th F A Bn but I can't find ANYTHING on the 774th FAG. Please help me find the overall unit history of this Field Artillery Group. Ty.
  6. Where there any converted M1902 Officers Dress Blue uniforms to the M1936? I have seen converted M1924 Spec 8-31 to M1926 Spec 8-31A. I would think that it wouldn't have too hard for the transition to the m36. Btw, thank you for the information.

  8. Honestly I love Dress Blue uniforms and didn't know that there was a M1936. I have never seen specs or any other m1936 listed. Are these much rarer than the M1938?
  9. I'm sorry I'm not use to this phone. Some reason its adding the same picture multiple times.
  10. I recently aquired this unique Officers Dress Blue Uniform. This piece belonged to : Lt Col Clayton E Kline, Aide De Camp, Kansas Army National Guard. This is a very unique piece. This coat has a mixture of M1902 Officers Dress Blue uniform and M1938 Officer Dress Blue uniform. Bullion Shoulder Knots and no front pockets. M1902 Rolled Lapel and Branch Colors on the cuff. M1938 This piece was made after the M1902 dress Blue uniform was abolished in 1928. This uniform was also made 2 years before the M1938 Officer dress Blue uniform Specifications were established
  11. I recently aquired this 774th FAG flag. Its rayon & measures 3ft x 4ft. This piece was manufactured by the PQMD. I have found information on the 774th Field Artillery Bn, 7AD. Could someone please help me to find information on the 774th FAG, US Army. Thank you.
  12. Guidons had a consistent size from 1834-1931. 1834 - Army Regulations authorize a silk, 27-inch by 41-inch red-over-white guidon for the Regiment of Dragoons (now the 1st Cavalry). It had a 15 inch forked swallow tail, with the letters "U.S." in white on the upper half and the company letter in red on the lower. It was carried on a nine-foot lance with a finnial at the top in the shape of an arrowhead (or spearhead). Color Bearers would attach a small leather cup or boot to the stirrup leathers on the off side of their saddle (see post on saddles below) to facilitate carrying the flags while
