Subject: Mislabled Signal Item

Message Detail:


The button shown above and also on page 101 of "Echoes of Glory: Arms and Equipment of the Union", Time Life Books 1996, was mis-identified. It is quite striking and I'd love to see us wearing such but lamentably it is a post war button. Both officers and enlisted signallists were known to have worn general staff buttons, an 'officer-man issue' which caused much controversy in a few army departments

The vol. does have some nice uniform coats, a great little id badge and other items of interest.
