(2) WW2 Blood Chits for Review

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

 

(2) WW2 Blood Chits for Review

 

• What are your thoughts on these Blood Chits
• I know these Blood Chits are a mine field
• I have zero experience when it comes to BCs
• Looking around the forum, many things to learn about BCs
• Both seem to be multiple piece construction
• Nothing glows under a black light ( if that means anything anymore)
• The BC with full writing measures about 7.5x11 inches
• The 2nd BC with less writing measures about 9x11 inches

"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)

I would really like to see the top one translated. I have never seen a real or repo example that looks like that one before. Looks like the Chinese alphabet...

I agree, the construction does not look right to me, I have never seen a cloth blood chit with that kind of stitching around the flag. In my opinion they are poor reproductions

I have a nearly identical chit that has all of the characters. I have a friend who speaks Chinese. He has translated it for me: "I am an American soldier assisting the Chinese, if something happens to me or if I am injured, please provide assistance and notify the closest Chinese and American troops". I received this chit with other items in a group of an American sailor who was stationed in China as a part of SACO in 1944-1945.

Yours looks like what would expected of an original.
