Nice bag, that 1st Division one. I'd have thought a fair price too, with a not too common name it may be possible to research.

 

Thanks for keeping this topic active, Brig.

Brig, great find on the sea bag!! I had that one on my watch list but decided not to bid at the last minute.

 

By the way that's a 3rd Marine Division marked sea bag, NOT 1st Mar Div!! Oft times the 3rd Div guys used the 1st Div tac mark because it was similar to their own but wider and much easier to mark the unit numbers inside.

 

I'm envious!!

Down in the arena are the doers. They make mistakes because they try many things. The man who makes no mistakes lacks boldness and the spirit of adventure. He is the one who never tries anything. He is the break in the wheel of progress. And yet it cannot be truly said he makes no mistakes, because his biggest mistake is the very fact that he tries nothing, does nothing, except criticize those who do things."

I just found this online!! This is a picture of WO Graham E. Rose U.S.M.C.R. Headquarters & Service Company, 20th Marines (Engineer), at Camp Pen, in 1943. He is (left to right) 2nd from the end.
