    Some are WHW ( winter help / relief work ) tinnies. Did the vet sew them onto the banner???

    No I think they are just pinned on the back...Thanks for the help! It is interesting all these seem to be early pins and buttons though..yes it was very kind of him . Love the D-Day stuff alone so with this coming from there, possibly , that is even more interesting!
