Medals and Uniforms in the Naval Academy and Naval War College Museums

Recommended Posts

@ Dave, I've read Cpl Hugh Puvis (MofH) who captured the Korean colors in 1871 while serving aboard the USS Alaska, and served as the Academy Armorer for 35 years is buried in St Anne's cemetery and his MofH and the Korean colors are on display. True?


I think that the MOH in post #2 is his. Unfortunately, I didn't take a photo of the description in the museum case. There's a chance the Korean colors are there too...but I was more intent in photographing the cool medal instead of some old flag... LOL ;)
