OISE is a sector in France as in like a department...ADvance SECtion...yes that seems to work

 

What about Advanced Sector ? that seem plausible

 

Funnily enough i think one of dads uniform sets was a doctor in the OISE section.

 

and Bremerhaven is a large seaport on the North German coast...go figure

David,

Great USMC Mess Dress! 1928 makes that a nice early one too. I always thought those were quite an impressive looking uniform. Even more so when they have the shoulder cords (can't remember how to spell the proper term for them, aguilette?) or when they are bedecked with a couple General's stars worth of medals. Truly an elegant piece.

Chris,

Absolutely stunning!! A named Force group and a VN Seal documented group who is an author to boot! Can it get any better?

 

Thank you for noticing Camo Para!

 

I am sure there are plenty more named First Special Service Force and Navy Seal uniform groupings out there, and I would love to see them posted for others to enjoy.

 

In fact, I'm pretty sure that Camo Para has a uniform grouping or two tucked away in his den. Let's see something...

Like the uniforms so far keep it up! Daan you might guess that jump jacket has my interest tweeked! Here is an Ike from Frank Reis HQ 2/506th PIR of the 101st AB. Reis was commander the MG section of the Heavy Weapons of 2/506th. His ribbons are all individual one ribbon bars and his wings are English made with one combat star. It was Reis' MGs that supported the famous E Company attack on the dike in Holland and again during the attack into Foy at Bastogne. Reis would be SWA at Bastogne.

Military_stuff_446.jpgH/501 Grouping

 

This is one of my favorites and some may have seen this before but I don't get tired of showing this one. This belongedt to 1st Lt. Glenn F. Janitz who hailed from Minnesota. He was a platoon leader in Hog Company, third battalion, 501 Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division. He jumped into Normandy and was KIA between Schindel and Eerde during Market Garden on Sept. 20, 1944.

Kurt,

 

I've seen this one before on another forum, but I certainly will not tire of viewing it again.

 

This is a beautiful A-2 with a monster 501 patch.

 

The condition of this fine piece looks to be exceptional.

 

Thanks for showing this jacket again as I can't say enough good things about it.

Hi Mate,

 

Very nice jacket! Is that a grouping from one person (ID'ed)?

 

Regards,

Daan S

 

Hi Daan,

 

Thanks!!

 

The 82nd A/B Class A Major coat has private tailor tag with no name assoicated with it.

 

Best regards,

 

Ricardo.

Well here is one of my favorites, it's part of a huge group I acquired directly from the the estate. The jacket belonged to Silver Star winner Theodore W. ''Ted'' Sorensen 723rd Bomb Squadron. The A2 is great by itself, but he was also the guy who is credited with designing the squadron insignia. Also posted is the "submission" patch , named and dated on the back!

I am bored prefixing everything I say with "I think" or "in my opinion".
Everything I say is my opinion; the only thing of which I am certain is that there is very little of which one can be certain.
