THIS IS A GREAT RESEARCH PROJECT!! Here is a RARE WWII era US Army thick wool shirt. The rare piece is the patch on the shoulder!
That is the patch for the 517th Parachute Infantry Regiment. I'm not sure what the "3" in the circle above the name represents. The shirt has some damage in the armpit area of the right arm and there are some moth nips here and there. I have the armpit measurements.You should not need ANY measurements because you are crazy if you are going to try to wear this with that patch on the shoulder. I DID SOME RESEARCH AND FOUND 2 "TUCKERS" LISTED IN THE 1944 ROSTER OF THE 517 PIR. ONE WAS CORPORAL ERNEST R. TUCKER COMPANY A, AND THE OTHER WAS PFC CHARLES W.
THEY BOTH WERE AWARDED THE BRONZE STAR AND CHARLES WAS ALSO ISSUED THE PURPLE HEART. I did not research further. Please see pics for more details.
IF YOU DON'T SEE IT IN THE PICS, THEN IT IS NOT INCLUDED! Please see pics and message me with any questions. 99% OF MY ITEMS COME FROM ESTATE AUCTIONS AND SALES. I DO MY BEST TO DESCRIBE THINGS, BUT I DO NOT LOOK AT THINGS WITH A MAGNIFYING GLASS.
I'M SORRY TO HAVE TO POST THIS, BUT I'M TIRED OF SOME PEOPLE ACCUSING ME OF MISLEADING THEM WHEN I MISS A 2mm SCRATCH OR DING. I CANNOT CHANGE IT OR REMOVE THE OPTION.
