Marine Uniform Display


Recommended Posts

I am very new to the Website, but I have posted of the facebook page a few times. I collect only named, war time, and SSI uniforms. I have been collecting Marines since May of 2018 and this is how I display them. This is a older picture all uniforms are on wooden hangers, and the lights are barely on just for picture purposes like this only. Overall goal is to get all patches on uniforms, named and I am getting closer and closer.

"I have only two men out of my company and 20 out of some other company. We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold." (Message sent by 1st Lt. Clifton B. Cates. USMC, 96th Co., Soissons, 19 July 1918 - later 19th Commandant of the Marine Corps 1948-1952)

Collecting Marine Raider Groups

On the battlefield, Pfc Edward Ahrens, an Able Company BAR man, lay dying, soaked in his own blood.

 

As his company commander, Lew Walt cradled him in his arms, he surveyed the scene around them. Nearby lay a Japanese officer, a sergeant, and thirteen enlisted men, all dead. Ahrens had been shot twice in the chest and bayoneted three times. He whispered to Walt, "Captain, they tried to come over me last night, but I don't think they made it." Choking back tears, Walt replied softly, "They didn't, Eddy. They didn't."

Very nice collection.

 

What is your favorite?

There is a few that I really enjoy. The Sixth Marine was a former Marine Raider, one of the 1st marine division is a bronze star recipient and purple hear as well, and one of the third marine has a China Headquarters patch and also was a bronze star recipient. I would upload pictures but the website says that the files are to big. Also sorry for the late reply.
