Great thread guys, hope we can keep it going. I have quite a few UNIS items but here is my latest. The marine was A/1/21 and was wounded on Iwo Jima. I have been wracking my brain trying to decode what the UNIS marking might mean for the 3rd Marine Division. Anyway, here it is.

 

Very best, Bill K.

Fresh from a local garage sale is this unis marked musette bag. I believe this is 1st division but need help reading the unit numbers.

Your guy is Lionel S. Reynolds. Enlisted in 1937 and went to officer's school in late 43'. Was a marine gunner in early 43' assigned to Special Troops, H&S Battery, 3rd Weapons Battalion, which is what the <621> stands for. It makes sense he had an early pack if he enlisted in 37'.

What are the three numbers inside the unis marking? I can probably ID this Marine if you let me know. Thanks!

Unfortunately, I haven't figured out 400, 800 and 900 series for the 3rd MarDiv yet. I would have to know the marine's name in order to get an answer. (at least the last name). 

These series of numbers I have figured out.

100 = 9th Marines

200 = 21st Marines

300 = Divisional HQ

400 = ???

500 = Engineers

600 = Special Troops (tank and weapons battalions)

700 = Service Troops (transportation, medical and supply battalions)

800 = ???

900 = ???

 

I might start a thread for people to post their 3rd MarDiv unis marked items that are ID'd and that might get us to the point where we can figure out the other three series of numbers.

Dean,

     Charles M. Scott started with the 3rd TB and then ended up in the 6th TB in late 44' through the end of the war. If the 632 on your pack is inside a horizontal diamond, <632>, then that is Special Troops, 3rd Tank Battalion, Company A.

 

Cheers,

Wilson

Hi Wilson, I have been compiling a list from all the 3rd Div UNIS marked items I have seen. I hope it helps, and I welcome any additional information!

I will be working on this tomorrow as I was gone most of today. My only change so far is that 300 = 3rd Marines. I think between your list and what I've found out, we might have all the series numbers ID'd. Then it's just breaking those down into all the number codes.

Any documentation / research suggest why the overwhelming majority of contemporary UNIS marked items are 4th MarDiv? And I'm referring to beyond this thread - to even what's available in the market. A lot of 4th, some 1st, a little 5th. Has anyone ever seen any 6th MarDiv UNIS marked gear (circle)?

 

I have two 6th MarDiv unis marked sea bags and both have circles.
