Presidential Unit Citation Variations

Recommended Posts

I have been picking up interesting PUC variations out of insignia boxes around here lately. The top left I believe to be German made and has a silver in color frame. The ones below it I also tend to associate with theater made--perhaps British? The top right two are the standard US made ones. I have more interesting variations packed away that I will photograph soon.

 

In the meantime, please show your PUC's!

I am not sure what the Pacific made PUCs would look like, I'd love to see an example!

Thanks for the posting!

 

Here's one I have that I assume is British made. Just noticed that the fellow put his initials on the back!

Here are three that I have. Nothing special, nice variations. The top and bottom ones are plastic coated. The middle one has a 1/2 " ribbon.

 

The bottom one is a Wolf-Brown clutchback without a frame. I have read somewhere that some AAF PUC's were issued without frames. It came from the estate of a WW2 AAF pilot. It was the only thing his widow would part with. I know, buy the item, not the story.

 

Any comments on PUC's without frames? Thanks, Al Hirschler in Dallas.

I once had a Wolf Brown PUC like the one you show, but the frame was loose because of sliding on the plastic. I wonder if the frame fell off?

 

Definitely a possibility, thanks CNY Militaria. I wish that I could remember where I read about PUC's without frames....but then again, I can't remember what I had for breakfast!! Thanks again, Al.

Here is my only "interesting" variation...

 

It's enamel on brass? with a ready made hole for a device. I had posted a long time ago and the consensus was then that it was German made.

The one without a frame isn't a PUC at all. It's the Civil Air Patrol "Air Search and Rescue Ribbon". In fact, the all blue ribbon without a frame is a "generic", ribbon possibly used by several military outfits such military schools, and State Guards. I believe it's even used by the National Guard in some states.
