    Beautiful items and great-looking display Chuck! It would be very cool if he had applied for the PH and you could find it...is this tunic named?

    Thank you all for your kind words. Besides collecting all this old stuff, I also pursue an interest in photography.
    I don't remember if the uniform was identified but certain other pieces of equipment were. The leggings had the name "Ross" written on the inside & the Mills bet had "Fred". I do remember finding a 'Fred Ross' that was wounded in the 82nd Div, 321st Artillery Rgt during WWI. All that data was lost when my computer crashed last year. I know, I know...I should have backed it up on an external drive or at least print a copy for the records...Let's just say I learned my lesson.
    In regards to the Mills belt, there are several little red/brown droplet stains that I thought at first was rust, but the pattern & my overall gut impression was blood staining.
    Basically, everything you see belonged to him except for the helmet, patches, portrait & flag. The only thing I didn't display was Ross's overcoat. Somewhere along the line, the shoulder insignia on the overcoat was removed. Dang it!
