Anyone want to reunite a WW2 26th ID officer's uniform?


Recommended Posts

I was watching a few items on ebay that must have got spread out after the estate sale. I'd like to see these items reunited. Milton G. Fehr was an enlisted man from Illinois who went through OCS and served with the 328th Infantry Regiment, 26th ID.

Here is the stuff when he was an enlisted man. Article with photo mentions him in C Company 66th batt in Italy. What unit was that?

 

Top three books are named to him as a Private.

Off to OCS. It looks like he spent a year as an enlisted man. Was in OCS July 29 - Nov. 30 1944. The book has a fold out yard long.

 

Looks like he wrote some articles while there.

His officer stuff. I am going to rebuild the uniform as it was in 1946.

 

The books say he is in the 202nd MP, but then it says it he was an infantry officer. Why is that?

Newspaper scraps while in the 26th. He must have fought at Saarlautern as most of the scraps are about the town

Here is the uniform. I put what insignia it came with on plus a few pieces that were missing. I tried to put it through the original holes. Need to find some overseas bars to complete.

The patches were attached already. I put the insignia on through original holes. The lower bar is original from the group. Upper bar I had to build.
