LeMania HS 9 Watch - 223 Royal Navy Pilot/Navigator Here we have a rare early Lemania HS9 wristwatch. This example is one of the very first of its kind, a series 1 with sterile dial (not maker marked on the face), issued to the Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm in the 1940’s. The HS9 designation displayed on the case back stands for Hydrographic Survey and is the earliest marking. It is the predecessor to the NATO style engravings which many of these watches were later converted and finding an example still clearly displaying HS9 without being crossed out or replaced is rare. The watches were first ordered by the Navy for pilots and navigators in the late 1940s and Lemania continued supplying them until the early 1960s. Please note - In working order although the accuracy is not implied or warranted. The caseback has the original military markings: HS 9 stands for Hydrographic Service, so for Naval issue the broad arrow and denotes crown property, 9 is the stores code for a chronograph wristwatch. Note - The price is £4250.00 - I require a bank draft for this sale contact me for details.

Major General St.Clair Streett Commander 13th Air Force in WWII - Original Overseas Cap and signed Photograph Original WWII Side Cap with Major Generals pin back rank stars and signed photograph of Major General St.Clair Streett, together with various newspaper cuttings, photos, articles, a letter from his wife to a collector dated January 1963 and another dated December 1966. St. Clair Streett (October 6, 1893 – September 28, 1970), known as "Bill", was a United States Air Force (USAF) major general and writer who first organized and led the Strategic Air Command (SAC) Streett served as aide to air power advocate General Billy Mitchell, and was viewed by General of the Air Force Henry H. Arnold as his own personal "troubleshooter". Earlier in his career, Streett served in France during the last stages of World War I. In 1920, he was awarded the Mackay Trophy and the Distinguished Flying Cross for leading a squadron of U.S. airmen on a pioneering air voyage from New York City to Nome, Alaska and back. Streett wrote of his squadron's difficulties in an article for National Geographic. Streett assisted Mitchell during the famous bombing demonstration against battleships. After participating in several air races, he made an exploratory flight to extreme altitude during which he experienced frozen flight controls, and then wrote a story about the adventure for Popular Science. During World War II, Streett commanded various training units in Hawaii, Florida and Colorado, solving logistical, training, and personnel problems. In Washington, D.C., he led the Theater Group of the Operations Division in the Office of the Chief of Staff where he expressed grave misgivings about the role of General Douglas MacArthur in the Pacific War—some two years later Streett was sent to the South West Pacific Area to work under MacArthur commanding the Thirteenth Air Force during its first offensive drive

Cuffs and waistband are in good condition with side pockets behind the front pockets. Bottom of the zip has become detached but still zips up. Details of a combat flight with Colonel John Page Medal of Honour winner. Colonel Page began rounding up stray Army men -- artillerymen, military police, engineers, medics, truck drivers -- who had been cut off from their outfits, and organized them into a shock-troop reserve for Puller\'s Marines. He split them into groups and drew up battle plans for each in an assigned sector of the Koto-ri perimeter. The Chinese were thick in the hills around the village. They attacked at night and sometimes during the day. Each time the Marines drove them off, but casualties mounted. The small Marine hospital was filled, and Chesty Puller looked urgently for a way to evacuate the wounded fast. The airstrip in the village was too short for C-47\'s, and the small observer planes could carry out only two men at a time. The runway had to be lengthened; the job was given to Page. The airstrip was inside the lines held by the Marines. Now it had to be stretched 1000 yards into no-mans land. Washboard ground, frozen solid, had to be graded level. Army and Marine engineers moved out with graders, and 15 volunteers from Page\'s reserve company went along. The Chinese snipers in the hills made it a bloody business. Colonel Page asked Lt. Charles F. Kieffer, an observer-plane pilot, to fly him on an inspection tour of the village\'s defenses.Colonel Page climbed aboard looking like a walking arsenal: he carried a loaded carbine; his pockets were bulging with extra ammunition and grenades hung from his belt. In the air, he turned to Kieffer. \"I would like,\" he said, \"to fly over that tent at the top of the mountain pass just to the south.\" Kieffer flew low over the spot, and Page studied the trails in the snow that led from the surrounding hills. Obviously, the tent was an enemy shelter. He motioned to Kieffer to make another pass, The pilot watched, open-eyed, as Colonel Page pulled the pins from three grenades, leaned from the cockpit and threw them down. The explosions blended into a single roar. The small plane nosed upward, and Kieffer looked back. The tent was destroyed. The ridge was pockmarked with enemy foxholes, and from it Red soldiers fired at will at targets on the airstrip and in the village. Page shouted to Kieffer to fly low. The plane hummed along the ridge, and Page began bombing the foxholes. At the end of the ridge Page ordered Kieffer to circle back at 50 feet, and Page began raking the foxholes with his carbine. A Chinese soldier stood up and leveled his rifle at the plane, then dropped it and fell forward. Other Reds died in their foxholes. Colonel Page used his last grenades to demolish a foxhole holding three Red soldiers, then ordered Kieffer to return to Koto-ri for more ammunition. But the second air raid was called off. The plane was needed to evacuate a badly wounded Marine.

The 4th Armored Division of the United States Army was an Armored Division that earned distinction while spearheading for General Patton's Third Army in the European theater of World War II. Battle of the Bulge Two days after the Germans launched their Ardennes Offensive, the 4th AD entered the fight (18 December 1944), racing northwest into Belgium, covering 150 miles in 19 hours.[3] The 4th AD, spearheading for General Patton's Third Army, attacked the Germans at Bastogne and on 26 December, the 4th AD was the first unit (Company C, 37th Armored Battalion[5]) to breakthrough at Bastogne and relieve the besieged 101st Airborne Division. The 4th Armored, unlike most other U.S. armored divisions during World War II, didn't officially adopt a nickname for the division during the war. However, their unofficial nickname "Name Enough" came to be years after the war due to the 4th Armored Division commander who trained them during the war having stated back then, that, "Fourth Armored Division was name enough"; "They shall be known by their deeds alone".

The division drove through Nogent-le-Rotrou in an attack on Chartres. The city fell on 18 August. From Chartres, the Division advanced to liberate Dreux and then Melun, where they crossed the Seine River, 24 August. The division then pushed on to bypass Reims and liberate Château-Thierry and then Verdun, 31 August.

U.S.Army 9th Amored Tank Battalion Patch A good example of the 9th Armored patch, removed from album and in good condition. The divisions nick name was Phantom Division. 91 days of combat with 3845 KIA or wounded. The 9th Armored Division landed in Normandy late in September 1944, and first went into line, 23 October 1944, on patrol duty in a quiet sector along the Luxembourg-German frontier. When the Germans launched their winter offensive on 16 December 1944, the 9th, with no real combat experience, suddenly found itself engaged in heavy fighting. The Division saw its severest action at St. Vith, Echternach, and Bastogne, its units fighting in widely separated areas. Its stand at Bastogne held off the Germans long enough to enable the 101st Airborne to dig in for a defense of the city. After a rest period in January 1945, the Division prepared to drive across the Roer River. The offensive was launched on 28 February 1945 and the 9th crossed the Roer to Rheinbach, sending patrols into Remagen. On 7 March 1945, elements of the 9th found that the Ludendorff Bridge was still standing. When German demolition charges failed to bring the bridge down, they crossed it, disarming and removing the remaining charges, which could have exploded at any time. The Division exploited the bridgehead, moving south and east across the Lahn River toward Limburg, where thousands of Allied prisoners were liberated from Stalag XIIA. The Division drove on to Frankfurt and then turned to assist in the closing of the Ruhr Pocket. In April it continued east, encircling Leipzig and securing a line along the Mulde River. The Division was shifting south to Czechoslovakia when the war in Europe ended on 9 May 1945.

Prior to 1940, the United States Army had approximately 4,500 pilots, including just over 2,000 who were active-duty officers, just over 2,100 reserve officers and a little over 300 who were national guard officers. As war seemed more likely, the number of needed pilots grew rapidly from 982 in 1939, to approximately 8,000 in 1940, to over 27,000 in 1941. Still, with these record numbers, more pilots were still needed. At the time, the United States Army could not sufficiently handle the training of the large number of flying cadets required. The U.S. Army Air Forces relied on additional pilots from the CPTP (Civilian Pilot Training Program) and a large network of civilian flight schools under contract to the US Air Corps, as well as conducting training in its own schools.

The SEAL badge is therefore unusual in the Navy in that it is one of the few badges issued in a single grade for both officers and enlisted personnel. This is partly due to the combined training that both officers and enlisted receive, side by side, when involved in BUD/S training.

Action On 8 November 1967 two HH-3E Jolly Green Giants of the 37th Aerospace Rescue and Recovery Squadron were launched on a night mission to extract five survivors of a Special Forces reconnaissance team. The site was known to be hot, surrounded by a well-disciplined, People\'s Army of Vietnam (PAVN) battalion. A Vietnamese Air Force (VNAF) and a United States Army helicopter had already been shot down and destroyed. Illuminated by a C-130 Hercules flare ship dropping LUU-2 parachute flares, Jolly 29 made a pickup of three survivors before being driven off by intense enemy fire. Jolly 29, with heavy battle damage, landed at the USMC Khe Sanh Combat Base. Maysey\'s helicopter Jolly 26 then attempted to pick up the remaining two survivors, both now wounded. Fighting, both in the air and on the ground, was intense. Maysey jumped from the safety of Jolly 26, and ran down a steep slope rescuing the two remaining men. Jolly 26 was now being hit with small arms fire. Just after Maysey had helped both survivors safely on board, a rocket propelled grenade struck the number one engine, fatally crippling the craft. The engine exploded, inverting the aircraft, which rolled and skidded down a deep ravine and burst into flames; a pilot and one other man survived the crash. Maysey received the Air Force Cross posthumously. The pilot Captain Gerald Young was rescued later that day and subsequently awarded the Medal of Honor. Larry W. Maysey Rank and organization: Sergeant, U.S. Air Force, 37th Aerospace Rescue and Recovery Squadron Entered service at: Chester, New Jersey Born: May 18, 1946, Morristown, New Jersey The President of the United States of America, authorized by Title 10, Section 8742, United States Code, takes pride in presenting the Air Force Cross (Posthumously) to Sergeant Larry Wayne Maysey (AFSN: 12751422), United States Air Force, for extraordinary heroism in connection with military operations against an opposing armed force as an HH-3E Rescue Specialist (Pararescueman) of the 37th Aerospace Rescue and Recovery Squadron, 3d Air Rescue and Recovery Group, DaNang Air Base, Vietnam, in Southeast Asia on 9 November 1967. On that date, Sergeant Maysey attempted the night extraction of a ground reconnaissance team after his helicopter had been severely damaged. Two other helicopters had been shot down and a third extensively damaged in previous attempts. During the rescue attempt, Sergeant Maysey unhesitatingly exposed himself to the hail of hostile fire to assist wounded survivors into the helicopter. The hostile forces closed in quickly, and as the damaged helicopter departed, it was shot down. Though his extraordinary heroism, superb airmanship, and aggressiveness in the face of the enemy, Sergeant Maysey reflected the highest credit upon himself and the United States Air Force.

In near mint condition. On 6 June 1944, Dog, Easy, and Fox Companies, commanded by Lieutenant Colonel James Rudder, landed at Pointe du Hoc from LCA landing craft and specially modified DUKW \"Ducks\" operated by the Royal Navy. The 225 Rangers had set off from Britain to launch an assault upon the cliffs overlooking the English Channel. In order to augment the strength of the 2nd Battalion, members of the Provisional Ranger Group were assigned as well. Several landing craft containing Rangers and supplies capsized in the stormy waters and many Rangers drowned due to heavy equipment, but others were saved and hoisted into other DUKWs to participate in the attack. The Rangers had planned to land at the base of the cliffs at 0600 hours, however, because of a navigational error, they landed nearly an hour late. This cost the lives of more Rangers as well as the element of surprise.

This shuttle bombing exercise was labelled Operation Frantic.

WWII Border Regiment Shoulder Title A Border Regiment title in near mint un-issued condition. In the Second World War the 1st Battalion, The Border Regiment, as it was then known, formed part of the British Expeditionary Force (BEF). Following the campaign in France and return to the UK, the battalion served as part of the 31st Independent Infantry Brigade which specialised in Mountain Warfare. In 1941 the brigade, and its constituent battalions, was selected to be re-rolled to undertake airborne assault by Glider as the 1st Air Landing Brigade with the battalion becoming 1st (Airborne) Battalion The Border Regiment. Later in 1943, the Battalion moved to North Africa as part of the 1st Airborne Division and in preparation for operations in Sicily and Italy. As part of the invasion of Sicily the Battalion took part in Operation Ladbrooke in July 1943, but suffered heavy casualties as many of the gliders were released too early and ended up landing in the sea with many soldiers drowned. Consequently the unit took the opportunity to reorganise and begin to refit in Italy. The battalion was then returned to the UK and was used operationally on Operation Market Garden, which despite a heroic stand ended with much of the battalion killed, wounded or captured. Only 9 officers and 241 other ranks returned to the UK at Roughton Moor Camp. Later they were moved to Well Camp, Lincs, and began to reform the battalion.

RNZAF Permanent Operational and Ground Training Station Administered by: Royal New Zealand Air Force Closest Major Town or City: Wellington History under RNZAF usage: Originally used by No. 2 (Territorial) Squadron from mid-1938 to fly their Blackburn Baffins from, it was a civil aerodrome before the war, and had opened in 1938. After the outbreak of the war the airfield became more and more military oriented, with the establishment of de Havilland New Zealand\'s aircraft factory for the manufacture of DH82 Tiger Moths for the RNZAF under the EATS. The factory also repaired and maintained other de Havilland products, plus several other light aircraft types, and manufacture parts for the RNZAF\'s Airspeed Oxford fleet too. The first RNZAF units to form at Rongotai came immediately after the outbreak of war, in September 1939. These were a Recruitment Centre, and an Initial Training School, for pilots, observers and air gunners. These were apparently actually in the New Zealand Centennial Exhibition Buildings, which must have been whilst the centennial was going on, because that was celebrated in 1940.

WWII U.S. Perisan Gulf Command Patch A patch in bullion thread, removed from uniform, aged and not mint, Please see images. Measures 3" x 2 3/8" The Persian Gulf Command was a United States Army service command established in December 1943 to assure the supply of U.S. lend-lease war material to the Soviet Union. Its history originated in September 1941, when the U.S. Military Iranian Mission led by Engineer officer COL Raymond A. Wheeler (later CG) was established to facilitate lend-lease supply to the U.S.S.R.[1] At this same time, the Iranian District of the North Atlantic Division was set up to provide construction support. In August 1942 the mission was re-designated as the Persian Gulf Service Command, and in December 1943 became the Persian Gulf Command. It subsequently came under the command of a succession of engineer generals. Following the War Department’s full militarization of construction, the Iranian District ceased to exist in May 1943. Three districts directly subordinate to the area command eventually replaced it. Eventually thousands of personnel worked in Iraq as well. Iran was already occupied by British and Russian troops who were guarding the oil fields and keeping an eye on the pro-German Iranians (Persians). Hitler believed that German military forces could eventually take possession of the oil fields and the railroad that went through the mountains from the Persian Gulf to the Russian border.

WWII U.S.A.A.F. Army Airways Communication Command Patch An embroidered on wool with cheese cloth backing example, removed from jacket some service wear and grim to the front. This is the large A2 size version and measures 5 1/8" x 3 7/8" The tempo, range, and scale of air operations in World War II greatly multiplied the need for fast and reliable communications. Unified command, centralized flight control, flexibility in the employment of tactical aircraft—all this and much more in the areas of combat operations depended upon an effective system of communications. So, too, did the movement of ferried and transport aircraft along the military airways discussed in preceding chapters, as did the provision of data on which dependable predictions of weather could be made. Radio and wire facilities had literally to circle the globe and at the same time to provide point-to-point, air-to-ground, or ground-to-air communication as the need might dictate. The exchange in some instances required transmission of the human voice; in others, a homing signal for the aid of distraught navigators or the simplified and complex languages of code. Installations might be as complicated as those serving a great city or so simple as to find shelter in a tent, a native hut, or some improvised structure. Whatever the circumstances of the individual unit, it had its place in a larger system that was as vital to air warfare as ammunition or fuel.

This training was completed by September 1944, but had to be extended by a further four months when the division provided reinforcements for the 82nd Airborne Division and 101st Airborne Division. The division also encountered delays in mounting large-scale training exercises due to a lack of transport aircraft in the United States. This shortage was caused by the 82nd Airborne Division and 101st Airborne Division taking priority over the 13th in terms of equipment due to the two divisions serving in combat in Europe. As a consequence of these delays the division was only fully trained and combat-ready by January 1945, and was transferred to France and the European Theater of Operations in February. When the division arrived in France, it came under the command of the First Allied Airborne Army, which controlled all Allied airborne formations. The division was selected to participate in Operation Varsity, the airborne operation to support the 21st Army Group crossing the River Rhine, but was removed from the operation due to there being insufficient transport aircraft to carry the division into combat.4 Several other operations were planned for the division after the end of Operation Varsity, but these operations were cancelled when their objectives were captured by the rapid advance of Allied ground forces and they became superfluous.5 After the end of the conflict in Europe, the division was shipped to the United States to stage there before it was to participate in the planned invasion of Japan, but the conflict in the Far East ended before it was required and it remained in the United States
