WW2 Jiminy Cricket patch? 275th Armd Field Artillery


Recommended Posts

This is list in a posting I saw. Looks to be Disney's Jiminy Cricket in a suit of armor.

 

Listing has it as WW2. Looks to be on yellow felt that has been mothed around the edges. Sorry for the fuzzy pic, but I had to screen shot it.

 

ID and era ?

I'd definitly say get it for 30$, I doubt the chance to own a Disney patch comes up often for that price and the demand is always pretty high for them. I also think that many collectors would be interested it because it could be a good place holder example of a Disney designed patch for any patch collector that is missing an example for their collection. Very nice find!

So it finally came in. This turned out to be an interesting grouping. Not only did I get the patches, but got a set of ribbon bars as well. So I am told these were found in a storage unit and these were salvaged / SAVED from a scrap book. The patches were stuck to paper and the paper id crumbling in my fingers. So the patches;

Is this his history and associated units? 2nd Army, 11th Corps , Un-numbered Armored patch (it's a green back by the way) and then the 275th Armored Artillery patch. I can see it's cheese cloth backed.

 

The Sgt's stripes have been trimmed on the bottom, so it could have been a T-5(?)

 

As for the ribbon bar, Was he a re-tread? I can't believe, but totally possible, they added the wrong ribbons; a WW1 Victory medal for a WW2 Victory and a WW1 Occupation for a WW2 Occupation ?!?

 

I'm waiting on some documents that am told will be in the mail soon. It will show some names but I don't know if it will pin point the vet.

Here's an addition to my previous posting.

 

Recveived from the seller today, A very, in not good condition, originial document. There is a pencil name of "Daniel" on the top of the page. First listing under #1, Alvah E Daniel 34769578, Hq Btry promoted to Tech Grade 5th.

 

So in the grouping i got, ribbon bar, he got a PH. From our generous members of the forum, the Jiminy Cricket patch was ID's as the, 275th Armored Artillery.

 

With this new info, can anyone provide further info on the greatest generation vet?
