29th Signal Company Marked Mess Chest


Recommended Posts

I picked up an interesting mess chest this past weekend - it's marked to the 29th Signal Company, 29th Division. It's seen a lot of use and doesn't have any of the original contents, but who knows where it's been? It was manufactured in 1942 so it could easily have been used in the Normandy Campaign.

Looking for older Virginia Military Institute items: insignia, uniforms, cadet sabers, documents, and groupings belonging to VMI alumni.

Also interested in Virginia Reserve Militia (VRM) uniforms and insignia, or other items of general Virginia interest.
