    Default USMC Pith Helmet

    OK, so this is not WWII but it is just after (1948).

    Picked this up yesterday. It's a nice clean USMC pith helmet. Thought it said 1943 on the stamp but when I got home, I could see it was 1948...a bit bummed...but at least it was named and has his serial number.

    So I looked him up and found that he was a WWII vet that was re-activated in 1946. Interesting..I wonder why???? Also not sure what ERC means (Eastern Regional Command??) Unfortunately I could not find his records for WWII.

    Paul Riddle,
    - Master Sgt Infantry.
    - RN # 42039650 from Bronx NY.
    - Recalled to Active Duty who had been transferred to the ERC.
    - Re-enlisted March 25, 1946.
    - Born 1925

    Enjoy...

    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
