To be alone, to have your life in your own hands, to use your own skill, single-handed, against the enemy. It was like the lists of the Middle Ages, the only sphere in modern warfare where a man saw his adversary and faced him in mortal combat, the only sphere where there was still chivalry and honour. If you won, it was your own bravery and skill; if you lost, it was because you had met a better man

Excellent! Those OSS's are the KILLER for me. Any idea what the arrow or inverted "V" is above them? Part of the tunic??

WW1 American items donations always appreciated!

Despite looking like a miniature (inverted) chevron above the service chevrons, it's actually just the top of the pointed cuff as found on the USMC P 1914 Winter Field Coat.

 

For some reason, the upper half of the upper half of the pointed cuff disappears, but if you look closely you can see the shadow of the pointed cuff's lower half emerging from underneath the service chevrons.

 

John, that is one of the more amazing images of a WW I Marine.

John--just an amazing portrait---love the 4 o/s stripes....obviously an occupation of Germany vet....the history of the 4th Marine Brigade in the occupation is in the Winter 2016 issue of Marine Corps History Magazine for folks that are interested in USMC history...

 

Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Infantryman of the 3rd Army Occupation era. The disk is blurry, but it looks like E company, 5th Infantry Regiment.

 

 

Fantastic portrait--5th Infantry Rgt would make sense as they arrived in Coblenz in late 1919 to prepare for a mission in Silesia. The mission was cancelled so the 5th remained in Germany until 1921-22.
