WWI navy jumper identification help


Recommended Posts


I just won a WWI navy jumper that was on ebay in the date unknown section. Knew it was WWI from the 6 months warzone service chevron. He had a right sleeve rating which is long gone (I'm sorry my photo of the area does not show up well but you can tell where it was in person). His last name is Jacobson with a W middle initial. I think first name starts with an F but it could be a smudged T. Can anyone help get him identified so I can try to replace the missing rating?

The only name I could find was a Tage Waltermore Jacobson, but I see a FindAGrave for a Tage W. Jacobson in Utah that just says he was PVT US ARMY and  WORLD WAR I & II. If it is the same Tage W. I found, then he must have changed branches by WWII because there is a WWI USN guy with the name that enlisted on 1/11/1918. I did not find any F.W. Jacobsons in the USN during WWI, but that just means I didn't find any and doesn't mean there weren't any. Anyway it is a start for you.
