    Default What do I have?

    I purchased a box of uniforms at an auction. I thought this to be interesting. Can anyone ID the insignia?

    You have a very nice early wwii four pocket variant u.s service jacket. He was in the CBI (China Burma India) theater and a staff sergeant.

    Edit: check the front right pocket and there should be a tag telling you the date of the jacket, in the photo it looks like it is unbuttoned.

    And he is a Staff Sergeant .1st Sgt would have Three stripes up and three stripes down with a Diamond in the middle.
    What is the patch on the other shoulder?

    Actually the rank insignia is for a Staff Sergeant, a First Sergeant or "Top" would have three bottom rockers and a diamond in between the the top three stripes and the three bottom rockers.

    It also looks like he has 4 overseas service bars on his sleeve. So he spent 2 years there!!!

    Looks like all the patches except the ranks are bullion which is another positive.

    Pablo the patch on the other sleeve might help tell us where exactly he served. If it just the star with wings (AAF)there were several base's throughout that theater. I have a uniform from my Aunt who served in the CBI with the star with wings(AAF) and she was station in Karachi India. Now Pakistan as of 1947.
