Recommended Posts

I found this group at an estate auction.

 

Francis J. Gafford was on Eisenhower's legal staff.

In the previous post you can see that the rank insignia are loose. I found them in the pocket.

 

This picture is original.

Quite a remarkable group! With the USAEUR patch, I assume he stayed in post war. Do you know what he did after 1945? Thanks for posting this.

I have no information on this man at all.

 

Thank you for your comment.

Why did Eisenhower need a legal team?

 

 

In case he pulled a fast one. :blink:

I might have another Ike connection group if I didn't sell it some time ago.

 

Glad you like it.

Very nice group!

 

I have a group to one of Ike's aides captured in North Africa in 1943. Has a nice signed photo of Ike in the group.

A very cool stuff.

I wish I had bought the entire group but I had a hungry family with me and I got distracted.

The auction was a Paladin auction done by John Tonkovich.
