USMC P41 AMTRAC UNIS? THOUGHTS?

Recommended Posts

Would like to get some thoughts on this "UNIS" mark from some WWII USMC experts. Ive never seen anything like it. This is on the back of a P41 shirt. Could it be 11th Amphibian Tractor Battalion, C Company? Is the #4 the rank of the Marine? Lieutenant? Thanks in advance!

You are correct on all counts! Here's a similar one, named, from H&S Co. 11th. That is really beautiful, is it named anywhere?

 

Best,

During Iwo Jima there are only 5 guys this could be - 1st Lts. Kennedy Clay Jr., Howard C. Ownbey, Oliver V. Zachem, 2nd Lts. Richard D. Kelley, Robert D. Martin. Lt. Clay was transferred to B Co. 31 March, 1945 after promotion to 1st. Lt.

 

Do you own the jacket?

 

Best,
