Not exactly 32nd RCT, but great looking 7th ID bullion patch that goes nicely with the group.

Here a couple more unofficial DUIs - I'm thinking these are post war. Interesting how the background has been changed to green.

Two more, again unofficial DUIs. Not sure of the age on these. The 32nd has always been known as the "Queens Own", in Korea they also adopted the "Buccaneer" motto. A self-published unit history from 1954 says the 32nd acquired the nickname "Buccaneers" during the Korean War because of its ability to move quickly & strike hard.

Front Cover - 1954 Unit History. These were printed for soldiers assigned to the 32nd so they could learn the unit history.

The scroll I was thinking can even go into the 80s, but a good example. I have several but no FE ones. That was a good pick up bro

Here is a 7th ID patch with "KOREA" Tab - again, not specific to 32nd alone but fits nicely here. This is interesting because it is a standard 7th ID patch ( US made I believe ) that has been attached to a larger felt backing and then the yellow stitching was added.

This is a nametape cut from a uniform shirt. Nametapes with skulls on top were adopted by the 32nd in various forms, this is one. The skull is made separately and sewn under to top of the tape. I also have added a picture of a second skull "tab" that was not sewn on. I am not sure yet when exactly these started to be worn. I have seen similar tabs made with a Buffalo and worn by 17th IN soldiers.

Here is my contribution to this thread. The SSI and collar brass came together and I added the skull pin to the grouping which I've had for a long time and never knew what it was.

 

 

Thats a Japanese made fully embroidered 7th Div patch correct?

Nice! The numbered & domed collar brass are hard to find.

For a short period, the 2nd Ranger Co was attached to the 32nd RCT. As I have never even SEEN a 2nd RGR Scroll in person - I don't have one yet in my collection. So for now I'm using this scroll instead to round out the collection. I got this probably 6 or 7 years ago at a military show in Kansas City.

This is picture I pulled off the internet awhile ago - I would give credit if I had noted where it came from.

Thanks for sharing these pictures. Nice stuff! I collect KW collectables and that flag and photo look familiar. I sold a flag just like that on eBay a couple of years ago. I have a couple of the Order of the Bayonet badges including one group with the award card the GI received when he got the badge. The Army was doing some neat stuff back in those days with uniforms and insignia. Do you do any trading?
