Collection of official-issue items owned by a World War II soldier, including a full uniform, badges and pins. Fascinating lot comprises: (1) olive green wool uniform consisting of jacket, pants and suspenders. The jacket contains a badge indicating that it was worn by a Corporal in the 3rd Army division; an additional badge in black and green with the letter ''T'' indicates the uniform was owned by a fourth grade technician in the U.S. army. Also affixed is the famous ''ugly duckling'' badge, which was given to members of the Army who received an honorable discharge. Many soldiers continued to wear their uniforms upon their return home due to the clothing shortage, and the badge distinguished them from active duty soldiers. The soldier's name, ''Gray'', is written on the inside of the pants and in the collar of the jacket. Jacket is size 36R. Pants are size 30 x 33; (2) olive green canvas zippered pouch; (3) brown wool garrison cap with red and white stripe running down the center; (4) 10 uniform patches including the famous ''ADSEC'' badge, which contains a red, blue and yellow lightning bolt; (5) snapshot photograph depicting three soldiers in uniform smiling together; (6) 11 pins with some showing U.S. insignia; (7) pair of ladies' earrings; (8) two ''bullet-style'' cigarette lighters; (9) a single detached suspender strap. All items are in very good to near fine condition.
