Named set of USMC P41s


Recommended Posts

Picked these up recently and not sure I’m gonna keep. I like the wear because you know they saw some action. Named to a Lt. D.E. Warren. Any ideas if this marine is researchable. Be nice to get any history back with it. A khaki shirt that came with it had a 1st Marine Division patch on it. Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

I seriously questioned if that shirt with the 1st division patch went with it and the owner wasn’t positive. God only knows where the Lt. Bars came from? If that’s him, I truly thank you. Okinawa wounded Vet with my first oral history on line that I will listen to later.Posted Image
