WWII 7th Infantry Division, 'Kwajalein' Identification Panel


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I attended the Minneapolis Military Relic Collectors show, In MN, this past weekend and had a blast seeing some old forum members and friends.

 

On the last day of the show, i was looking at some stuff and found a nice m1941 upper USMC pack and picked that up. As i was looking at some USMC patches, out of the corner of my eye, i spotted a flag on the wall. I grabbed it super fast and brought it to the seller and he told me it was a 'Japanese signal flag', and wanted $30 for it. I handed him the money and took it. Now i know, and collect Japanese Militaria and this is not Japanese. I am thinking MAYBE it was in a 7th Div grouping and the seller thought this was a part of the bringbacks and not the American items? Who knows..

 

 

Here are some pictures i have. I do not want to take many close up photos and dimentions just yet becuase i have only seen one other on picked up in a grouping and can't seem to find any information online other than the two regismnets that wore these only for Kwajalein and that was it.

Geez. If that's the real deal you're the luckiest guy in the world in my opinion (when it comes to cool militaria, especially 7th Division gear). I don't know, but I think you may have hit the jack pot on this one.
