Named Sergeant USMC P41

Recommended Posts

I recently got this amazing P41 shirt for around 60$ off of eBay, its named to a M H Boggs, has sergeant marking on each sleeve, and has “M Boggs, Saipan? (I assume thats what it says as its pretty faded), 1942 1944, Lucky Japanese” written on the inside. Its in immaculate condition except for a bit of fraying, some fading of the USMC and EGA, and some white paint that splattered onto it. E986430F-4699-474D-8E7B-98D3076141DB.jpeg.d418057c2447d8f1bc3d9c5f0d715e12.jpegA0318AE1-93ED-497A-BF2F-63053C1099BA.jpeg.6cd299432e8d40d42a36ec0de178f128.jpeg0FAB5968-DA21-4C95-8804-D5E600C820D4.jpeg.4315aec3b41916824fccdbea2dfdc4eb.jpeg

For some reason I'm of the impression that inking in the chevrons on the HBTs didn't happen until after the war.  A number of you out there know more than I, so please feel free to correct me.  Post a picture if you can.

Since i’m not doing much at 3 AM and this seems to be getting traction, i dug it out and took photos of all the writing on it. The name, chevrons, and writing all seem to have been done at different times with different pens. Something interesting i noticed is that the sergeant markings on the left sleeve have been done with a stencil or at least utilized a stencil , while the right sleeve seems have been freehanded. Also i would really appreciate if someone would be able to try and track down some information M H Boggs, i haven’t had any luck and i would really like to get some more background information on him.25C66823-2929-48F0-8801-7234B9664E62.jpeg.cf8603b1d6d73eae7312bb758d02b82d.jpeg0900AF37-3C92-4026-ACE3-B3ABA93FDF4A.jpeg.e6548c9a3c3847834e8d7d56aed51ab7.jpegCD242CE5-B99A-46D2-9032-041BE356F170.jpeg.0eef47f07199cd3b304ffe6ecc78743c.jpeg14E03AD5-C2C4-45C1-8AD9-80DF1A59E28B.jpeg.5f70f6a8435146d5fba033724dcbe3af.jpeg
