  1. These are WWII. There was an Edwin Baker (no middle name), BM2(T) 671-15-05. on the USS Alshain (AKA55) from Feb 1945 - Dec 1945.
  2. According to the Book "Dressed for Duty" June 30, 1944, the NNC was eliminated from the insignia.
  3. The city code (Cincinnati 2, Ohio) was in use between 1943 and 1963. 1963 started zip codes.
  4. Only found one Abraham Cohen listed in the VA Death listing Name:Abraham Cohen Gender:Male Birth Date:31 Mar 1926 Death Date:17 Jul 2006 Branch 1:NAVY Enlistment Date 1:27 Jun 1944 Release Date 1:19 May 1946 Can't find him on a muster report but if he was part of a beach battalion, can't do a search as the "shore" establishments are not yet indexed.
  5. Could be a private purchase which would explain the differences.
  6. But if he died in 1989, ATF and WWII Imp weren't in business then, so it wouldn't have been something that he wore that they made. I began reenacting in 1989 and don't recall hardly any repros being made then except George Peterson (NCHS - Washington DC area) making 1941 field jackets and tanker's jackets.
  7. Very nice. One suggestion. This appears to be a "Normandy" boat. The boat crew would be wearing either the dark blue winter jacket, or the OD7 N-1 winter jacket. In reality, they would probably also be wearing the N-2 Rain jacket to keep the water off but I know figures aren't made with the rain parka/jacket. The light blue you have is good for their chambray shirt, but as cold and wet as it was, they'd be wearing some foul weather gear. But excellent job. What model kit is the LCVP?
  8. It's pretty much a standard 2" x 6 yds guaze bandage that you would find in any medical kit that called for 2" gauze bandage. Didn't see any listed for the Army kits but in the Navy's shipboard first aid boxes, they were listed. A stock number and/or contract number would usually not be on the individual boxes but on the outer box/case they come int. Here's one at 1944supply.com (navy contract): https://www.1944supply.com/gauze-bandage-3-inch-x-6-yards.html
  9. The 31 is probably just an inventory number.
  10. Very nice. Suggestion - put a label above each of the medals as to what they are.
  11. Believe she was from Meridian Connecticut: From the Hartford Currant - Dec 26, 1944
  12. Here's what it says from the 29th Div. Morning Reports. NBC is Non Battle Casualty.
