Named WW2 4th Ranger BN Uniform Grouping


Recommended Posts

Here is Uptons name, but it also has the greek letters Phi Kappa Psi. Potentially a fraternity he was a member of post war? This group keeps mw guessing, that is for sure. Any further information is greatly appreciated. I continue to speak with the family and provide the information I have found. Thanks again.

Nice items, although I do suspect that the M42 jacket zipper is post war replaced.

I will pay top dollar for original WWII items pertaining to:

 

OSS

OSS Maritime Unit

NCDU

UDT

Scouts and Raiders

FSSF

Here is a copy of SGT Uptons CIB award paperwork.

 

And additional dates to include his WIA date and when he was transferred from 4th Battalion to 2nd Replacement Depot. I know by the end of the war the 2nd Replacement depot was located in Normandy, but would he have been transitioned from here to another unit or back to the States. Thanks again.
