    Hi guys,

    Does anyone know what unit this DUI is for? I think it's for some sort of New York Guard unit, but I can't find a match.

    Thanks,
    Mo

    Hey Kradman, I did some Googling on your suggestion, and still no answers. Anyone else have any guesses?

    I cant read the latin saying below correctly. Is it Semper fidelis? That is the Marine Corps Moto "Always faithful"
    With the NYG I would also guess NYNG.
    Semper Fi

    I've looked on the net for it a few times. But when
    you type in 'Semper Fidelis', all you get is USMC
    topics. However, when you type the correct
    combination of words, you get results :

    74th Regiment New York Guard - Distinctive Unit Insignia - NY Military Museum and Veterans Research Center

    Though I don't know why they refer to
    these as "DUI's".........!
    Regards,


    Steve.

    That's it! Thank you so much Steve!

    I can't find too much history on the unit after the Civil War, sadly.
