USMC bar with 'Asiatic' clasp on the Victory Medal. Only about 1000 Asiatic clasps were awarded and were for port calls in Siberia...

Now that is a cool little set of mini's Brig!  That Asiatic clasp is outstanding and the USMC Expeditionary mini is cool too.  Very clean looking group of mini's!

Hello,

 

My first set of attributable minis to Major General John K. Hester, USAF. A fighter pilot who served in the CBI theatre including service in China with the 14th Air Force under Chennault as A-3 with the 68th Composite Wing, the military Flying Tigers and successors to the American Volunteer Group. He completed 50 combat missions in China and likely received his single Air Medal after 25 missions and DFC after 50 missions as per CBI guidelines during the War.

 

A fascinating career culminating with command of the 17th Air Force in Germany which was cut short due to a parachute accident from which he died of his injuries. He subsequently received a posthumous Air Force Distinguished Service Medal for his command.

 

The accompanying photo wearing his minis is pre Legion of Merit, unknown when he received his first LoM.

 

The link below is to his bio and a great presentation on the Major General's service from the militaria dealer who sold the medals on behalf of the family.
