This grouping was found together in a Purple Heart box and presumed to belong to the same soldier since they were found in a family estate sale.  The Air Medal is identified on the back as belonging to S Sgt Wade L Wagner A. C who died in the soldiers home in Johnson City. The Purple Heart and the Distinguished Flying Cross have no markings.  As you can see the paint has peeled off in places on the Purple Heart medal  The box is in poor condition, especially the back spine. The case snaps shut however, and I believe the box might could by spruced up. Also in the box is a ruptured duck pin and two purple heart ribbon strips.

4th Reunion Program-555th Parachute Infantry-Black Airmen
Item #: NEW-0012558

Click image to enlarge
This program for the 555th Parachute Infantry was held at Fort Benning in Columbus Georgia in 1984.  This unit was made up of African Americans.  The program has photographs and ads on the back welcoming the group.  Here is a history of this historic group of Airmen.  

The unit was activated as a result of a recommendation made in December 1942 by the Advisory Committee on Negro Troop Policies, chaired by the Assistant Secretary of War,John J. McCloy. In approving the committee's recommendation for a black parachute battalion, Chief of Staff General George C. Marshall decided to start with a company, and on 25 February 1943 the 555th Parachute Infantry Company was constituted.

On 19 December 1943, Headquarters, Army Ground Forces, authorized the activation of the company as an all-black unit with black officers as well as black enlisted men. All unit members were to be volunteers, with an enlisted cadre to be selected from personnel of the 92d Infantry Division at Fort Huachuca, Arizona.

The company was officially activated on 30 December 1943 at Fort Benning, Georgia. After several months of training, the unit moved to Camp Mackall, North Carolina, where it was reorganized and redesignated on 25 November 1944 as Company A of the newly-activated 555th Parachute Infantry Battalion.

[edit]World War II


Members of the battalion are briefed before takeoff from Fort Dix in 1947
The battalion did not serve overseas during World War II. One of the reasons for this decision dealt with the issue of segregation. European theater commanders "simply had no use" for the Black jumpers. The Asian theater was a different matter. Members of the 555 hoped to get into the war against the Japanese. According to Sgt Walter Morris "It was a secret mission called Operation Firefly. We thought we were going overseas to [Gen. Douglas] MacArthur's theater". It wasn't until they arrived in Oregon, in May 1945 that they learned they'd be fighting the Japanese on the fire line in the Western United States.[1]

During the winter of 194445, the Japanese sent 9000 fire balloons toward the western coast of North America. It was believed 1000 succeeded in reaching the United States, and 300 were witnessed. After three days, each balloon dropped an incendiary bomb.[2] In order to conceal the efficacy of these attacks, the missions of the 555th was kept clandestine in nature. In addition to fires started by the enemy incendiary devices, the 555th fought numerous other forest fires. Stationed at Pendleton Field (site of initial training for the Doolittle's raid on Japan) Oregon, with a detachment in Chico, California, unit members courageously participated in dangerous fire-fighting missions throughout the Pacific Northwest during the summer and fall of 1945. The group engaged in over 1200 missions, earning the nickname "Smoke Jumpers" in addition to "Triple Nickles." The only fatality in the unit died while jumping on 6 August 1945.

The 555th Parachute Infantry Battalion was nicknamed the "Triple Nickles" because of its numerical designation and the selection of 17 of the original 20-member "colored test platoon" from the 92nd Infantry (Buffalo) Division. Hence, the origin of the term Buffalo Nickles; the spelling derives from old English. Three buffalo nickels joined in a triangle or pyramid is the identifying symbol.[3]

Soon after returning to Camp Mackall in October 1945, the 555th Parachute Infantry Battalion was transferred to Fort Bragg, North Carolina, its home for the next two years. During this period the unit was attached to the elite 82d Airborne Division. When the battalion was inactivated on 15 December 1947, most of its personnel were reassigned to the division's organic 3d Battalion,505th Parachute Infantry Regiment.

WWII Embroidered Blood Chit-China-Burma-Indiana Theatre
Item #: NEW-0012118

Click image to enlarge
I was very excited when I began to research this item, which through my research points it to be possibly from the Flying Tigers Squadron during World War II. There were, however, other units active in China including pilots who flew over "The Hump" airlifting supplies to the Chinese army and citizens following Japan's blockage of the Burma road so that supplies could not get in.    The flag measures 11 plus by 8 plus inches.  Some pin holes. It appears to be hand embroidery on silk.  It has possibly been cut down as the workmanship on the hemming does not match the quality of the rest of the piece.  See scans.  

Reference for the item is the Wikapedia entries on blood chits and the Flying Tigers and also google blood chits of the China-Burma-India theatre. This example matches exactly a box on the left hand side in the body of the article on the Blood Chits. This item was translated for me through several channels ending with a Taiwanese native.  His or her translation was "Foreigners came to China to assist in battles.  All (Chinese) servicemen and civilians should rescue and guard them."  The translation on the web site reads "Save soldier foreign come protect civilian person China one American help body fight." This particular blood was identified as the second edition of the original blood chit used by the Flying Tigers and the 14th Volunteer Bomb Group operating in China. There are many varieties of the blood chits made both by the American military, the Chinese military and local artisans which I suspect this one was made by. Some were sewn onto jackets, inside or outside, or just carried on their person.

Blood Chits, also called Identification or Rescue Flags, were designed to provide rapid identification of a downed flyer and facilitate assistance from local allies encountered. 
Pilot wearing Blood Chit 

 The flag of the issuing government is usually at the top, followed by a message in one or more local languages.  The first ever use of Blood Chits by American flyers was in the China-Burma-India Theater of World War II.  They were used by the 14th Volunteer Bomb Group and by the Flying Tigers of the American Volunteer Group (AVG) operating in China.  The first recorded use of what came to be known as a Blood Chit was by members of a British Royal Flying Corps squadron in India in 1917.  It is believed that contact between the AVG and the RAF in Burma in 1941 may have led General Chennault to create a version of the Blood Chit for use by the AVG.  

Needless to say, these blood chits have been reproduced throughout the years.  The embroidery appears to me to be hand done and the whole item has some age on it.  Hopefully there would be interested buyers who know more than I do and can quickly ascertain whether this is indeed from WWII.  I bought this from a trusted dealer who had kept it for about twenty years and he obtained it from someone who was an advanced collector of WWII items.

Photograph-Lockheed's Shooting Star Airplanes
Item #: NEW-007556

Click image to enlarge
Large photograph which measures 16 and a half by 18 inches. It has been shrunk wrapped which I have left on for protection. It is harder to view the condition although I can see some small edge tears and maybe two rather long scratches. Overall condition is good. These planes with a radar snout were made in Marietta Georgia and first saw action toward the end of WWII and later more extensivley during the Korean War. Here is some information taken from the web: Few airplanes in the history of aeronautics have been as successful as the Lockheed Shooting Star. It was the first operational jet fighter in the United States when it went into service in 1945. It emerged as victor in the world's first all-jet combat, and it won the distinction of remaining in production for a full 15 years after the experimental model was first flown. The airplane had its origin in June 1943, when Lockheed was requested to design a fighter around the De Havilland turbojet engine developed in England in response to Germany's twin-engine jet fighter, the Messerschmitt Me 262. The XP-80 was designed and built in the amazing period of only 143 days--37 days less than the original schedule. It was flown for the first time on January 8, 1944, and its performance was considered sensational.

Photograph-Gloster Meteor-World War II Airplane
Item #: NEW-007503

Click image to enlarge
This is a large photograph which measures 12 by 9 + inches mounted on a larger board. Nice condition on the photograph but wear to the board, especially at the corners, including an area where the price sticker was removed. The following is a history of this historic plane which was first used in World War II. The history was taken from the web. The Gloster Meteor was the first jet-powered aircraft to enter operational service for any air force in history. Though the Messerschmitt Me 262 Schwalbe was also under development at the same time, the Meteor actually beat the Me 262 to operational status by a reported mere number of days. Along with being the first jet fighter in service, the system also held the distinction of being the only Allied jet aircraft to see any form of combat in the Second World War. Futuristic by any standard, the Meteor was designed with a low-monoplane profile with two turbojet engines. The twin engines had become a requirement of the aircraft as the thrust capabilities of a single turbojet at the time was insufficient to power any sort of aircraft - let alone a fighter. A single tail rudder and powered tri-cycle landing gear rounded out the list of innovations in early models. Armament consisted of a 4 x 20mm cannon assembly and an ejection seat was standard - that latter addition in itself was revolutionary, albeit a dangerous feature for early jet fighter pilots. Early Meteors were put into action versus the dreaded German V-1 rockets being hurled against England. As rocket interceptors, the Meteor could supply the speed and firepower to knock the intruding rockets out of their flight path. One particular mission, a Meteor pilot actually used his wing to tip the V-1 rocket out of flight after his four cannon had jammed (an early problem with Meteor armament that was shortly rectified). After several revisions to the powerplant by various manufacturers, ultimately landing in the control of the fabled Rolls-Royce organization, the Meteor was finally able to stretch her legs. the only air-to-air combat recorded for a single Meteor was an engagement with a German Focke-Wulf Fw 190, to which ended in a draw citing exterior circumstances. Beyond the war, the Meteor would go on to see combat in the Korean War at the hands of the Royal Australian Air Force against the Soviet-produced MiG-15 jet fighters. As time passed the Meteor by, the system reflected poorly in Korea as a jet-versus-jet competitor, thusly relegating the Meteor to more supplementary roles such as ground attack. Nevertheless, the Meteor broke new ground and became the mainstay of many an air force throughout the world. Royal Air Force Meteors were actually still in limited service as late as 1977, owing to the great legacy of the aircraft's design an flexibility of the airframe.
