Souvenirs From A 3rd Army Interrogator - Interpreter

Recommended Posts

I was told by a local antique picker about some WWII souvenirs brought home by a local veteran that was an interrogator - interpreter during the war. He didn't know if anything would ever be available but he gave them my name anyway. Most leads don't materialize but one day this one did. I did not get everything as the family held on to some. This veteran is still with us and in his 90's. He was attached to the 3rd Army. Photos may be a bit blury or out of focus.

Timberwolf summed it up best, Holy Crap! To imagine there was still a horde like this tucked away 70+ years later is absolutely incredible.

I don't believe they were from the same NCO. The hat sizes were: 56 - 56.5 - 60.5. The parade tunic may have belonged to one of the smaller hats.

that's a great pile of souvineers, I'm curious about what the family held on to!

 

There was paper money and coins, two swords, one cloth cap, a few cigarette card albums, a few medals-pins, two other boxes loaded with "non military" souvenirs and three nice side arms. I was told that some items were already taken away years ago.
