Private and Local, who can authorize it? We are a private long-term care facility for senior adults. All the regs we see say the lowest ranking official that can declare flying the US flag at half-staff is the governor of the State? What is the rule regarding a private business flying a flag at half-staff to honor someone?
Hand-embroidered to a OD wool base, using metallic wire thread, these were created in England. What is rare and unique are the 'D's added to each medical caduceus.
This specimen is still on the manufacturer's card. The design incorporates lion paws and the Latin motto: Dondero in Washington, D. Some theatre-made examples are only marked 'Sterling' on the reverse.
A lot of funky-looking postwar examples of the th crest have been offered on E Bay lately. The postwar examples have a differently shaped shield more rounded and the base color of the metal is brass. The postwar examples also have 2 clutchback fasteners, instead of a single, long safety pin on the reverse.
The WW2 originals are silver, and if they don't look like the above, they ain't WW2. This example courtesy Captain William E. BTW, I saw a postwar-type th DI larger brass format with different shaped shieldhaving a long pin across the back, at a SoS, circa It was quite pricey, but I don't think the DI dealer who was selling it ever owned a real one from WW2.
Many collectors and dealers don't know what an original "looks like" and this also goes for the much more common plastic st distinctives, as well as obscure ones, like the artillery battalionsst, th and th.
Photos showing the th crest in wear seem to be almost non-existent. This one was taken in Europe after VE Day. Few DIs were taken overseas and it seems that various sergeants took turns wearing this Ike jacket for photos, because it was fully decked-out.
As with most other WW2 era crests, these have a single vertical pin on the reverse with a rotating retaining device. A screwback variation of the th DI also exists, which is original to WW2. Volunteers from all regiments and some battalions of the division trained there, to learn how to signal incoming formations of troop-carrying planes, using radar, lights, smoke pots,'biscuit guns', and other devices.
These patches, which were worn on the lower left sleeve above any hash marks or overseas bars, were originally made in England. The specimens shown, are of typical Brit construction-a cotton design embroidered on a blue wool base. Any paratrooper who completed the training was eligible to wear this patch, regardless of whether he ever made a combat jump AS a Pathfinder.
Of course the actual trained signallers wore it,as well as associated Air Corps Troop Carrier crews. It was also worn by security personnel, who didn't take the PF signalling training, but who parachuted in ahead of the main body of invaders with the Pathfinders, and protected them as they performed their duties on enemy held ground.
These security men, chosen from various rifle companies only a week before D-Day, were also eligible to wear the Pathfinder wing. Hilary McKenna, who served as security for Team 1 of the st Normandy Pathfinders, provided the example illustrated above left.
Note that the Hendersin wing has been trimmed closer to the wing and torch, leaving a much narrower blue border around them. The patch also appears larger than McKennea's but it is not-this is just a result of the way the images were cropped and saved.The square knot device is displayed on the uniform to denote that the wearer has received the corresponding award.
The award is usually in the form of a certificate and many awards also include a medallion or other memento. Scoring Guide for POW Possible Patches 1. PROBLEM STATEMENT (6 pts) MAX SCORE SCORE a.

The Medal of Honor August 23rd, Posted in Military | 1 Comment». The Medal of Honor, There is nothing in the world that symbolizes when a person has reached deep down inside of themselves in a time of crisis like the Medal of Honor does.
After we had done this, we had to apply the same process to different dimensions and record our observations. For the first problem, I managed to fit twenty-three 3 in.- by-5in.
patches in the 17 in.-byin piece. In the next problem, I managed to fit two 9-by patches in a by piece. The rest of my work is detailed in this table.
