Bring backs from a 45th ID soldier.


Recommended Posts

I was told by the widow that this vet was with the 45th ID, 180th Infantry regiment when they came across the Dauchau concentration camp. These items were from a slave factory that made this insignia.

I think this is a Munich newspaper. It shows British paratroopers being led off to POW pens. It is dated July 6, 1944 so these are D Day POWs.

That photo of the good private's uniform towering over these relics is a classic example of spoils of war. The guys who wore that insignia thought it was going to be a symbol of dominance for a thousand years.... the private and his buddies showed him how wrong they were!

This is really an awesome bringback.

 

Do you know how much people want to pay for this insignia?

 

In the Netherlands, one ss collar tab is over $400....

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

Thanks for the comments. I do not know what company he was with. Not much paperwork in the grouping. The family kept his medals which is the way it should be.
