Unknown 80th Inf DUI Can You ID?


Recommended Posts

I got a WW2 80th INF Ike and I have not been able to find this unit. I think it is for a AAA unit as the Ike has Coast Arty collar brass. Can anyone help?

Always looking for WW1 28th Division; anything, papers, field gear, uniforms, etc.

Thanks guys. I was looking all over AAA and Arty DUI's for it. I'm thinking they aren't original to the Ike then.

Post a photo of the entire Ike and the reverse of the DUI's. That will enable a determination of originality to be made.

Here is the Ike. Sorry about the quality of photo my camera leaves a lot to be desired.

Here is the DI. It is not hallmarked and the lower pin has been re-soldered back in place.

 

Again the camera didn't do this justice.

Based on the photos, as least some of what is on the Ike was placed there by someone other than the vet. Those 2nd Inf DUI's should be with a 5th Div patch, not 80th Division. Not an "as-worn" jacket.
