Jumpin Jack's Collection

Recommended Posts

This is my first effort at posting photos to share with members of the Forum. There will be more to follow. The photo shown here shows three camouflage uniforms. The two at the left are two-piece USMC, while the one at right is a one-piece Army. The center uniform belonged to a Marine Raider. You'll be seeing other of his uniforms later. The one at the right belonged to a Vet during WWII that rose to Staff Sgt. rank, He later rose to full Colonel rank.

Really enjoy it when collectors share photos of their collection. They reflect the dedication, research and plain hard work that has gone into them and motivates fellow collectors to keep at it. Thanks very much sir!

Tell me about it. I have a WWI officer's uniform that I would like to put on a mannequin. Want to step outside your box a bit? Look around ebay for mannequins. Seriously weird vibe there.

 

All that aside, excellent collection and display. My first combat uniform was a camo one piece that I bought with my Christmas money in 1996.


Looking for the following:

452nd and 447th Bomb Group items

Anything 12th Armored- especially uniforms

155th Assault Helicopter Company, Camp Coryell, or Ban Me Thuot Vietnam items[/center]


WWII US Navy Uniforms from the Battle Off Samar: USS Johnston DD-557, USS Hoel DD-553, USS Samuel B. Roberts DE-413, USS Heermann DD-532, USS Dennis DE-405, USS John C. Butler DE-339, USS Raymond DE-341, USS Fanshaw Bay St. Lo, White Plains, Kalinin Bay, Kitkun Bay and Gambier Bay...

Thank you all for your comments. I have been really frustrated over the years not knowing how to post photos. I really wanted to share with the Forum members. I'll try to step up the pace and get more out. I'll intiially do overviews to get some practice in. Then, I will do some detailed stuff.

 

A note to Garandomatic: Where full mannequins are concerned, it is important to remember that you have to fit the mannequin to the uniform rather than the uniform to the mannequin. Try putting on the pants first, because if they don't fit, neither will the jacket or tunic. As for acquisition of mannequins, look for stores going out of business, "For Sale" listing in the newspapers, collectors down-sizing their collection. For appearance sake, try to avoid the modern mannequins with exagerated poses, etc.

 

Good luck! Jack Angolia

You're right, most out there now seem to be over six feet tall, not exactly WWI appropriate!

post-247-0-14515800-1388949674.jpgSorry, but I've run into a glitch posting new overview photos. This will be solved tomorrow. Until then, I'll try to post some specific photos.

 

Shown here is the Ike jacket belonging to SSgt. Jack C. Cockrill, 479th Fighter Group, 8th USAAF. He entered active duty on 27 April 1942. He attended Aircraft Mechanic's School, but was soon given an Administrative MOS. In his words, "I typed my way throught the war." He earned the Good Conduct Medal, American Defense Medal, ETO Medal w/2 bronze stars, WWII Victory Medal, and Presidential Unit Citation. He was discharged on 1 November 1945.

post-247-0-09658700-1388951986.jpgUniform belonging to Col. Eldon M. Stenjem, Commanding Officer, Fort Sheridan Separation Center, 6th Service Command. He served during WWI as an Infantry Lt. He was recalled to active duty in 1940 with initial assignment at Fort Custer, MI. He was then transfered to Fort Sheridan, IL., where he established a rehabilitation center. His awards consists of the Legion of Merit, Army Commendation Medal, American Defense Medal, American Campaign Medal, WWI and WWII Victory Medals. The tunic shows the Wisconsin N.G. SSI and shoulder cord being worn.

 

A bit more background as to how I came about his grouping, which consists of his visor cap, trousers, shirt, tie, award documents and photos. When I travel, I always have photos of my collection on the digital camera. While on a river tour in Bangkok, the lady sitting next to me that her father was in WWII. I showed her some photos, and asked her what did she plan to do with the material.

She responded she didn't know, but would I be interested. The rest is obvious. Jack
