Amazing collection of images! I like the one from Rose Bud, just due to where it's from, but some amazing content in the others.

 

Thanks for posting them.

Don - amazing history in these fantastic images. I hope others post here and expand this great thread.

 

Re photo #4 in post 21 - is it possible that this Soldier is wearing foreign medals? The drapes on them look Austrian or other European. Am just curious if that could be the case and that it was allowed if so. Kind of neat.

I am not really sure about the two medals you are referring to. The blouse is definitely different

Maybe someone else can tell

Thanks

The Regimental Quartermaster officer in post #39 is really terrific. I am working on a book about metal QMC insignia, and its nice to see these in use on a real person. Thanks for sharing. And no, I will not add the picture to my book (its already printing as we speak!).

WANTED: I collect materials of any age related to the US Army Quartermaster Corps and from the long-defunct Commissary / Subsistence Corps. Anything goes and it doesn't have to be identified to a vet. If it's weird or unusual, please PM me! ASMIC #5650
