Very nice, 13th FA Athletic sweater circa 1930's, Hawaiian Division, Schofield Barracks, T.H.


There's a good ASIMC Trading Post article on these patches (January-March 2003) by one of our members and there are some very, very old topics on them if you dig deep on the forums.

Mason that is a great example of an athletic sports sweater and cool to see how they applied the track tag.  Kinda like a hash mark.  They come in various colors too, blue/white and black/orange come to mind.  There are FOOTBALL, BASKETBALL, BASEBALL, BOXING etc... to represent what the individual athlete excelled in.  The sweaters were actual awards and not just any jock could get their hands on one.  I'm certain "Savage Sailor" has seen 1930's trophy tables photos from Schofield Barracks before the prizes were awarded at the annual Inter-Departmental Athletic Awards Ceremony.  I think there are some in the various Horse and Transportation Show programs.

Mason that is so cool! It will look great in your fine collection. Kevin

I am eagerly collecting Pre-WWII USMC material. Any Marine Corps Span Am era, WWI, Banana Wars, or China Marine related material is especially sought after.
