My D-Day Navy Jumpers LST-284 & LST-380


Recommended Posts

Although my collection mostly focused on Iwo Jima, I don't pass up unique items that are not often seen.

 

As I've been collecting named uniforms since 2010 and i've learn to appreciate how amazing rare D-day uniform really are. I've only come across three in my researching of uniforms, two of which I bough, the other that I missed was from an auction that ended early.

 

The first belonged to a PhM on LST-284, who was also trained with Foxy 29 as part of the medical crew on the ship.

I collect items from The Battle of Iwo Jima (1945).

Top Iwo Jima Items I'm Looking For:

1) IDed 5th MarDiv Corpsman Jumper or Forest Green Coat.

2) IDed Coast Guard Navy Jumper

3) IDed CB's Sea Bee's Navy Jumper

4) IDed 147th Infantry Regiment Army Service Coat

5) IDed 32nd ID Army Service Coat (Occupation Kyushu with 5th MarDiv).

I am always looking for named and dated WWII USMC Forest Green wool alpha jackets/coats from the 5th Marine Division or other units who participated in the battle.

The second belong to a Momm1c who was assigned to LST-380. He stayed in Navy long after the war until the 1960s.

I also own his blues as well.
