Show us your Korean War impressions!


Recommended Posts

If I remember correctly those patches came off a roll and were given to every 3th man; original pics showed only about 1/3 wore those patches. I don't know if they were original, post-Korea or repro. Flak jackets were all original and the larger weapons were all issued by the Army (and fully functional).

After a year of assembling the proper Korean War Army gear, I recently did my first display at a local military cemetery living history event in conjunction with other era displays. In the last photo, one of he vietnam guys came over to chat (I am on the left in the ridgeway cap). Overall, people were very receptive and interested in the era, and I hope to get to do another display whenever I can. Even met a Korean War Air Force vet who hung around for awhile.

Here's an impression from this year's Memorial Day ceremonies. I pick a different uniform each year to wear as the Taps bugler.

 

This year I built the uniform around this shirt that belonged to Edward G. Polanski. As a 1st Lieutenant in Korea, he flew over 140 missions as an L-19 pilot and earned a few Air Medals with the 2nd Division artillery. I found a very interesting Stars and Stripes article about him and his co-pilot taking out a Chinese machine gun nest with a .45 pistol.

To anyone in the greather Los Angeles area - the nearby mountains and foothills are excellent places to take re-enactment photos, e.g., the Santa Susanas, the San Gabriels and Santa Monicas.
