90th Infantry Division "Tough Ombres" Spoils of War


Recommended Posts

This is a grouping that I picked up about 8 years ago at an ASMIC convention in Denver. This is a grouping from a PFC Sam Duke, who was assigned to Headquarters, 2nd Battalion 357th Infantry Regiment, 90th Infantry Division. Included in this grouping are Duke's Dogtags, and 2 P-38 can openers, a small 90th Infantry Division History booklet, Sterling Combat Infantryman's Badge, sterling marksman badge, 90th Infantry Division Shoulder sleeve insignia, infantry and US collar brass, ribbon bar with good conduct ribbon, world war two victory ribbon and European African Middle Eastern campaign ribbon with 5 campaign stars, overseas service hash marks, a New Testement Bible that was a Christmas present from his mother, which was enclosed in a metal pocket protector and a photograph of Duke.

 

There was also a large German flag in the grouping, but unfortunately the vendor sold the flag seperately several minutes before I had the chance to pick up the rest o

 

Also included but not pictured is a full size 90th Infantry Division Unit History, several copies of the 357th Infantry regiment newspaper, and several reunion books and other documents. Duke was very active in the 90th division association.

 

It appears that Duke was very busy gathering souvenirs as indicated by the various medals and other insignia that is present in this grouping.

I never see such groupings in the Netherlands

Looking to buy D-Day and 101st/82nd related groupings

It must have gotten around. I picked it up in Denver, Colorado at the ASMIC convention. It was a husband and wife vendor team. That's all I can remember. Thanks for the comments..
