Hi Olivier!

 

I was just browsing this thread and saw your post and it immediately made me think of the tactical symbols that you usually see as unit designators on maps. I'm pretty sure that the marking on the bandoleer and lower pack is designating a recon unit. The K may represent K company? Here's a master list that was from an Osprey publication. Although it is from an Army document, Marines use the same symbols. Take a look.

Alec,

I hope you are still on the forum. The picture you posted of Ian G. Beswick's map case on May 21, 2013 belonged to my father. He was in the Marines 2nd division and fought in Saipan and Tinian. Can we talk off line? My email is beswickcl@gmail.com.

Thank you.

Greetings Gentlemen. I figured Id add to this topic, versus starting yet another on UNIS markings. Please indulge me, as its not a uniform, strictly speaking. Id like to share a seabag and hbt cap to Korean War Marine P.a.u.l. L. S.i.t.e.s.

 

He appears on USMC Muster Rolls from April of 1952 to July of 1954. (Note: There is a typo in his MCSN early, which is corrected by mid-enlistment). By July of 1952, he was a PFC in HQ Battery, 10th Marines, 2nd MARDIV. He never left that unit, showing the addition of a BN designation in October of 1953, to HQ-3-10, 2nd MARDIV. In April / July of 1954, he shows in the Enlisted Reserves in Chicago. Beyond this gentlemans service, what I find interesting, is below are the markings on his seabag.

 

So, he was only ever in the 2nd Marine Division, but has a horizontal lozenge (aka diamond) on his seabag. This, in contrast to what weve come to expect, which should be a square. Now, I know there is some conjecture about vertical versus horizontal lozenge for 1st and 3rd MARDIVs, but this is wildly different.

 

Anyhow, I thought I would share, as it has added to my conf-unis-ion. :)

This lower pack is marked with a yellow triangle and a yellow H on the back and the front has the stencil for the 2nd Bn HQ Co. 14th Marines. That would put this pack as being part of the 4th Marine Division. Anyone else have yellow diamond or other shapes marked items?

 

 

SO Far we have:

WHITE for 1st Div CONFIRMED

Black for 2nd Div possibly confirmed

Yellow for 4th unconfirmed

 

 

I have a 14th Marines marked sea bag, and besides the 612 inside the half circle, there is a red 5 inside a white circle.

Map case belonging to Curtis W. Kinney, MIA Tarawa. Co. B, 2nd Amphibian Tractor Batt., 2nd MarDiv.

 

Do these double red diamonds represent the 2nd Amph Batt?

Here's a unis marked sea bag belonging to Homer W. Davis Jr. who was in the 3rd Motor Trans. Batt., Serv Troops, 3rd MarDiv, so the horizontal diamond on the bag would confirm this marking used by the 3rd MarDiv.

Thought I would add something I recently picked up, it is a UNIS marked USN signal generator. The markings on are on the base and lid.

 

Does anyone know what the UNIS mark stands for?

I can't tell what the number is inside of the triangle. Could you please let us know what it is? I have a 3rd MarDiv marked upper pack with 302 inside. Is mine a 3rd Tank Battalion marking?

I recently purchased this rbz radio with what I believe to be UNIS markings. I believe they are from the 5th marine division. 

 

The radios are marked with STAP as well. 

 

Any further info would be appreciated.
