24th_infantry Posted April 7, 2014 Share #1 Posted April 7, 2014 About 2 years back I purchased a grouping from a lady whose brother was a medic in the 1260th Combat Engineers. In the grouping I got his Ike jacket, medic armband, dog tags, unit history book, and a ditty bag with patches, rosary beads and bible, and his good conduct medal and ribbons. Today I met up with her again and purchased another 1260th unit book, a few photos of Napoleon St Cyr during WWII, a post card written in French addressed to him dated 1945, and his military ID from 1944. The one item not pictured in a Mauser Hsc which he captured and was found in a sock in his draw. The vet is still alive, however he is in a nursing home and unfortunately does not have a sharp memory any more. 1. 2. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
