U.S. Army / 370th AIB, US Constab
« on: October 12, 2017, 01:43:14 pm »
When the mission of the Constab changed from policing Western Europe to the defense of Western Europe, the Constab was beefed up with a number of combat arms units being assigned to the Constab.

The 370th AIB was one of these units.

Looking at the cable count, the overall embr, and other characteristics, it's a period original.

Webber has been updated, well into the 600s, please take a look.

BTW - if you want to make reasonable offers on anything in the Webber collected numbered 1-499, please do so.

500 and higher are new entries. 

This one speaks for itself. This is another one that has been misIDd through the years. We corrected the record on this one, and most dealers are honest about them - I said "most".

U.S. Army / Japan War Crimes Trial (WCT) patch
« on: June 21, 2017, 12:16:49 am »
This one has also been misID'd for decades. It was worn in the Philippines for the Manila WCT, which lasted all of two months in 1946. There is evidence that it is a Philippine Army patch, worn by one of two units (or maybe both), and Americans involved in the Trials were granted approval to wear it.

It was NOT worn in Japan for any of the Trials there. BTW - there were WCT held in many different countries following the war - Russia, China, Singapore, Australia, Nuremberg - and all the Trials were known by their geographical locations.     

U.S. Army / 24th Cavalry Division - ONLY
« on: June 21, 2017, 12:12:51 am »
The patch on the left has been IDd as "21st Cavalry Division"; the one in the middle, as the 24th Cavalry Division. No one knows how this came about. Both are for the SAME unit, the 24th Cavalry Division. However, both of these patches as depicted were never worn. They were made for collectors; note they are both fully embroidered. The true period original 24th Cavalry Division patches are like the round one on the right, emb on wool.
