Hi to all ;

 

I think this is my centerpiece of my collection.

 

In Louisville ( SOS - 2011 ) I picked-up this wonderfull grouping from Official U.S.-Army / U.S.-Coast Guard Photographer Henry M. (Max) Raphael Jr. Complete with his named M-1 helmet ( fixed loops with Hawley ), USCGR dog-tags , several ID-cards , his medals and bars , documents and 3 full albums with over 1200 !! pictures he took during his duty. ( Also some paperwork and family pictures from after the War ).

 

Henry "Flash" Rapael was his nickname. Borne 6 August 1916 San Francisco, California. Enlisted as Sea.1c. USCGR on 16 January 1942. Arctive duty untill 20 Oktober 1945. Service no. 514-031 Vessels and stations : DCGO, 12th NavDist. ; CGC TANEY ( U.S.S Taney ) ; DCGO, 12th NavDist. ; CG Rec.Sta., San Francisco, California. ; U.S.S General A.W.Greely ; CG Train Sta., Manhattan Beach, N.Y. ; USCG Personnel Separation Center No.12, San Francisco, California.

 

If there is someone who can find more info about him, THANKS

This is definitely my centerpiece. It's part of a large group I'm fortunate to own belonging to an 80th Company Marine. He was later given the honor of being assigned to E Co of the Composite Battalion under then Capt Clifton B. Cates USMC.
