  1. The jacket is kind of close and the pants are very close, but this officer never lived in Conn.. Also, the shoulder flaps do not have any red piping and the red piping on the jacket cuffs is shaped like a chevron, not just round. Thank you for your interest.
  2. I have just recently found out that he was involved with ROTC. If you add in that his name is on the pants tag, could this be an early ROTC uniform ?? The buttons are Waterbury #09504 Thanks, Sy
  3. This ribbon group belonged to a WWII USN Commander Eldredge, who served in the Supply Corps. So far I have not found his first name. Checked with a couple of ribbon sites and I think I found a couple of them, but not all. Asiatic Pacific Campaign / China Service / Philippine Liberation / Navy Reserve. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  4. These were part of a uniform group belonging to a WWII USN Commander, who served in the Supply Corps. The pants are royal blue with red stripe down the sides. It is very light, but his name is on the tag.
  5. Has Waterbury buttons #09504 and red piping on shoulder flaps. Piping on cuffs looks like a large cheveron. Thank you for your help.
  6. HI GILL: Your first impression looks to be the correct one. Ski's sugestion that it was a W and not a C ,helped me make more sense of the symbolism. I made a couple of real rookie mistakes that sent me in the wrong direction. Thank you for your help in thi matter. Take care. SY
  7. HI Ski: You are correct, it is a "W". I have been looking at this patch from every angle for 2 weeks and did not catch it. That little zig-zag at the bottom of the curve now makes sense. Thank you very much for your help. Take care. SY
  8. This 5" x 4" felt patch has redish orange graphics sewn on black, which is sewn on black. It has conjoined C&P letters with laural wreath on each side. The cloth is high quality and the stiching is perfect. This is way out of my area of knowledge. I contacted a couple of people in my area who have handled militaria, but they have not seen one like it before. Best guess, is that it could be an early camp police or patrol patch. The large size with bright colors would make it easly seen and establish the wearers authority. Kind of like the large MP arm bands. The laurel wreaths could mean some kind of command function??? Then again, I'm most likely just spinning my wheels!!! If anyone has ideas, it would be appreciated. Thank you in advance for your time. SY
  9. Found at the bottom of a box of BSA & Militaria items I aquired at an auction. It is about the size of a dime and has a screw back, with the "Gustave Fox Co. Cinn. Ohio" logo. It is a minature version of the 1909 type IIIb, but with one big exception, NO EAGLE. It is not broken. It was just not made with one. I am guessing that this was worn either on a lapel or hat. So far no luck in finding a second pin of this type or a reference to one. Would greatly appreciate any help. Thank you. Sy
