Hi,

 

Can anyone identify the branch of service that used this color combination? It looks blue-green and maroon to me.

 

Thanks,

This looks like the maroon and white of the Medical Corps to me.

Allan,

 

Thanks for your feedback. I compared it with a couple other examples and think that you are right. It came with a single identification tag from a sergeant in the 2nd Idaho Infantry. Most of that regiment was transferred to the artillery, but it is possible that the sergeant ended up with the medical corps. It will take more research to determine if the two items really belong together.

I agree with Allan. Really beat up, faded/discolored medical corps.
