Great and truly unique WW2 US Army Medic Grouping of STAFF SGT Evart A Tinker who was a medic in North-Africa and after that EUROPE (France) during the Normandy campaign. You can find a lot about him online and apparently there are several archives where his materials/photo's can be requested (see attached screenshots).
The grouping consists of (Jacket, Pants, Belt, Early War Next of Kin Dogtag, Ties), nice size, with patches of the ETO (European Theatre of Operations) and the 7th Army (famous from the France 1944 Campaign), together with a medal bar of his campaign medals (EAME / European medal bar with 3(!!) battle stars (i.e. Tinker participated in 3 major European campaigns e.g., D-Day), and the Good Conduct medal that he deserved multiple times!
The jacket is dated June 1944 in the tag, and named to Tinker as well. The belt and dogtag also has its name and the same service number. The shirt has exactly the same patches as the jacket, showing clearly this has always been together. The Jacket has nice medical soldier collar insignia, originally placed, which is especially evident from the beautiful patina on the jacket near the collar (see photo's). The insignia is early war, with the nice screw-back closures. The jacket has a very nice manufacturer tag denoting it is an US Army Regulation Jacket.
Blacklight photo's show/confirm that the insignia is originally applied (doesnt glow).
Great and rare 100% original item for your US WW2 collection, definitely a centerpiece, WITHOUT DOUBT the best grouping I ever had to offer here!

There are also photographs of German, French, Russian, and Arab soldiers, patients, and prisoners of war.
