Inter-war M1902 Artillery uniform

Recommended Posts

Another uncommon artifact "walked in the door" today - a very nice inter-war period Model 1902 Enlistedman's full dress uniform. This example was worn by Corporal Milo Semsel; he was born in 1906 in Stamford, Connecticut to Slovak immigrants. He passed away on February 14th, 1998. During his service, he served with the 192nd Field Artillery, one of the oldest serving units in the Army.

Surprisingly, it even still has the collar liner...although it's VERY well worn.

Every piece is named to him...when I took pictures of the tags I could only see the obvious...after I brought up the contrast a little, you can see the October 25, 1932 dates(s). Not a bad set for a walk-in!

Don't see these interwar 1902 dress blues too much, this one has it all, insignia, cap, trousers, and a name. Nice uniform. Thanks for sharing.
