WWI Wool Uniform Jacket with 5th Marine Battallion Insignia Overseas chevron?:
This is a real wool WWI uniform jacket. It has all original buttons (see photo). There are a few tiny moth holes, and the inside lining on one sleeve is a little loose, but otherwise in EXCELLENT condition. The felt insignia patch on the arm is from what seems to be the 5th Brigade, USMC. The 5th Regiment of Marines landed in France in the first expedition of American Troops in June, 1917. Any Army or Marine buffs out there who have more accurate information would be welcome to email me. The other chevrons are for Private first class, and the upside down one I think denotes overseas action. This uniform also has a cap, also in excellent condition with the badge or insignia of the number 11. I have been told that this uniform belonged to my grandfather, who lived in the midwest (Chicago area) . I do know that he did fight in WWI, but I have no other information about him. I am not sure, but I believe this is a serious piece of militaria, and belongs to a collector who can honor it.
