  4. Sweetheart (?) or Son in Service(?) pin that was also in group.
  5. His discharge and picture of Nitro in China pre-war
  6. His ship "Nitro" on 1940 Xmas card and certificates
  7. His self-framed medals. Good Conduct Medal is not named.
  8. Saturday I was able to get a grouping from an estate sale of a WW2 Navy man. It included his medals (1980's replacements), framed discharge, 2 certificates of schools (one as torpedoman) and some framed pics of ships he was on. He was on the USS Nitro (AE-2), USS Hamul (AD-20), USS Solar (DE-221) and one other. He joined in 1940 and was discharged in 1946. Also included was this commissioning pennant showing use. Sorry about the pic with it on the floor. No disrespect meant, but only place to show it by length which is just over 6'. More pics to follow... How scarce are these pennants? Frank
  9. Local newspaper articles may have some info on his career. Can try the local library if close by to see if have newspapers in file or the newspaper itself if still in business. Paid source on-line would be Genealogy Bank. com PM me if you want me to look him up. I have a subscription. Frank
  10. prob WW1 or slightly earlier. Looks like enlisted man - maybe officer candidate. Not that up on German uniforms.
  11. I would take a guess and say the color scheme would be like this pic, and prob Prussian. The shoulder boards would most like have the number of the regiment he belonged and possibly the Prussian crown.
