General Pershing Signature

Recommended Posts

He who waits LOL, finally found a nice General Pershing autograph, nice clear image too, he had two, this one and another but the image was a little blurry even though the signature was personalized and a tick darker, this one looked a ton better

Excellent shot! And with the signature too !

I though I'd add this....... As its relevant to your post.

Im attaching a shot of Pershing that my Grandfather took in 1918.

Notice he is wearing the same uniform with the Sam Brown belt and one ribbon.

If you didnt know what the ribbon he is wearing is.......

 

I showed my Image to a reputable antique dealer in chicago decades ago. The two old guys there were looking at it and chuckling because the only ribbon he was wearing..... they said it was his good conduct medal.

Same as in your image..... Contrast the commander of the AEF and his ribbon display with modern Generals.

 

Nice find! Congratulations

That's the Army Distinguished Service Medal. The summer 1918 London-made uniform of Pershing's we have in the collection also bears only one ribbon, the Army DSM.

Ahhh, All I had to go on was what the two old guys said it was years ago.

General Pershing wasnt big on show and eye wash. He kept his uniform simple.
