    Default My named uniform grouping. US engineer

    I'd like to share my grouping. Any opinions or additional information would be great. WW1 is not my main hobby, but I can never let groupings go when the price is right.

    This grouping is named to Barney L. Hobbs, of Co. B. 5th Engineers, 7th I.D.
    He was a combat engineer from Ft. Collins, CO. He survived the war, but I lost track of him after that. Among the items are:

    -Puttees
    -Leggings
    -knit sweater vest
    -sweater
    -shrapnel from a german shell
    -luggage tag, leather
    -garrison cap
    -full wool uniform. Trousers, Tunic, and overcoat. All with patches.

    Everything is in nearly perfect shape. The garrison cap is heavily mothed though, as well as damage to the greatcoat 7th I.D. patch.

    I agree, a great group. The vest and sweater while not "sexy" items are something which are hard to find.

    Cheers, Ade.
