AUSTRALIAN Battledress 1st USMC Div Bloodied Patch Theodore Wall


Recommended Posts

AUSTRALIAN Battledress 1st USMC Div Bloodied Patch of Theodore Wall, Weapons Company 1st Marine Regiment. Wall served at Capt. Gloucester, Peleliu, and Okinawa. He was wounded at Okinawa. His records seem to have confusion on date wounded, generally accepted as May, 3, 1945. I will share the documents, maybe a forum member can help. Nice red embroidered trimmed Aussie 1st Division patch. A nice untouched battledress. Thanks

His Casualty Card has the date of 5/3/1945 for his injury.

 

That is an exquisite tunic by the way.

I think the May 3rd date is the correct one.

 

Her is a snippet of his unit Muster Roll for April 1945, and it mentions nothing about him being wounded.

 

Footnote D is regarding those Marines joining the unit on the 24th, from the 29th Replacement Draft
