Offered for auction is a fantastic huge WW2 Grouping, something that is almost impossible to find nowadays! The grouping belonged to 2nt Lt. Patterson, who was at Aberdeen and subsequently sent to ETO/Europe following the Sicily landings where he fought in Europe. For a time, he was attached to ETO Advance Base, as reflected by the patches present in this grouping. This huge estate includes:
- Dog tags of 2nd Lt Patterson
- ID Bracelet named to 1st Lt patterson
- UNIQUE!! His Theater-made fighting knife (these knifes were locally made in the USA given the shortage in fighting knifes early in the war. This one is made by MARBLE, a famous maker for such knifes. See http://www.quanonline.com/military/military_reference/fighting_knives/theaterhistory.php
- His two personal stamps for marking important documents, both on his name/his service number
- Belt buckle

- His medal bar
- One of his WW2 medals (Armed Force Reserve, boxed)
- His two overseas officer caps, one with his service number and name stamped inside
