irish Posted July 12, 2016 Share #1 Posted July 12, 2016 Found this in a small shop recently. Well made piece of Naval knot art. Sailors name is marked on back "old and faint" Herly or Herby Wagele C.M. 2/C. 302 Sierra Place New Orleans 20 LA. This looks to be from around the WW2 era, or at least that is when the 2 digit zip code was started. Shown in his address. I think CM 2/C is a Carpenters Mate Second Class. Have looked for one of these displays for years and recently this popped up when I was least expecting it. Some knowledgeable ex Sailor may be able to tell us what the different knots are. Large 27" x 17" . Missing a few ropes to connect the boat with the block and tackle. Enjoy Jack Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
