Japanese Blood Stained Body Flag +WWII
Item #: NEW-005927

Click image to enlarge
I purchased this flag along with six other similar flags that were in a wooden camphor box. Since the box was more expensive than the flags I did not purchase it. This is the last flag that I have left. US officers insigna were also in the box which I assume belonged to the GI soldier who took them off of dead or wounded Japanese soldiers. Blood stains were present on most of the flags, as are on this one. This flag measures 31 by 27 inches. I'm not sure of the material. Some of the flags were silk but this is not. View the scan to see the condition which is good, if you can call a blood stained flag in good condition. These flags were decorated by the friends and family of the soldiers who wore them inside their uniforms for good luck. Therefore, this flag was personalized for the soldier who carried it. There are gold paper hanging strings at two corners. Insignia is included in the lot. Eagle shield pin has back markings V20 10K on one side and under that +ster. Opposing side has a symbol which seems to be an eagle which looks like a star. Silver leaf. Lt Colonel? Backmark reads Vanguard n.x. Captains insignia Vanguard Sterling.

Swizzle Stick-Kilroy Was Here
Item #: NEW-004356

Click image to enlarge
Handle shows a pregnant woman. "Kilroy was Here" is on the plastic stick.

Unfortunately I lost the link to the site that I copied this from.

Who was Kilroy?


...for those of you who don't know, here's the rest of the story....................


He is engraved in stone in the National War Memorial in Washington, DC- back in a small alcove where very few people have seen it. For the WWII generation, this will bring back memories. most being familiar with Kilroy but not the story behind the name.


In 1946 the American Transit Association, through its radio program, "Speak to America ," sponsored a nationwide contest to find the real Kilroy, offering a prize of a real trolley car to the person who could prove himself to be the genuine article. Almost 40 men stepped forward to make that claim, but only James Kilroy from Halifax , Massachusetts, had evidence of his identity.


'Kilroy' was a 46-year old shipyard worker during the war who worked as a checker at the Fore River Shipyard in Quincy . His job was to go around and check on the number of rivets completed. Riveters were on piecework and got paid by the rivet. He would count a block of rivets and put a check mark in semi-waxed lumber chalk, so the rivets wouldn't be counted twice. When Kilroy went off duty, the riveters would erase the mark thus earning double pay when the rivets were counted again.


One day Kilroy's boss called him into his office. The foreman was upset about all the wages being paid to riveters, and asked him to investigate. It was then he realized what had been going on. He continued to put his check mark on each job he inspected, but added 'KILROY WAS HERE' in king-sized letters next to the check, and eventually added the sketch of the chap with the long nose peering over the fence and that became part of the Kilroy message.


Once he did that, the riveters stopped trying to wipe away his marks. . With the war on, ships were leaving the Quincy Yard so fast that there wasn't time to paint over the message. As a result, Kilroy's inspection "trademark" was seen by thousands of servicemen who boarded the troopships the yard produced. His message apparently rang a bell with the servicemen, because they picked it up and spread it all over Europe and the South Pacific.


Before war's end, "Kilroy" had been here, there, and everywhere on the long hauls to Berlin and Tokyo . To the troops outbound in those ships, however, he was a complete mystery; all they knew for sure was that someone named Kilroy had "been there first." As a joke, U.S. servicemen began placing the graffiti wherever they landed, claiming it was already there when they arrived.


Kilroy became the U.S. super-GI who had always "already been" wherever GIs went. It became a challenge to place the logo in the most unlikely places imaginable (it is said to be atop Mt. Everest , the Statue of Liberty , the underside of the Arc de Triomphe, and even scrawled in the dust on the moon.


As the war went on, the legend grew. Underwater demolition teams routinely sneaked ashore on Japanese-held islands in the Pacific to map the terrain for coming invasions by U.S. troops (and thus, presumably, were the first GI's there). On one occasion, however, they reported seeing enemy troops painting over the Kilroy logo!


In 1945, an outhouse was built for the exclusive use of Roosevelt, Stalin, and Churchill at the Potsdam conference. Its' first occupant was Stalin, who emerged and asked his aide (in Russian), "Who is Kilroy?"


To help prove his authenticity in 1946, James Kilroy brought along officials from the shipyard and some of the riveters. He won the trolley car, which he gave to his nine children as a Christmas gift and set it up as a playhouse in the Kilroy yard in Halifax , Massachusetts .


And The Tradition Continues...

WWII Training Calendar-Camp Sibert Ala
Item #: MIL-001498

Click image to enlarge
Unusual and rare calendar "August to December 1943 Second C.W.S Training Regiment Camp Sibert Alabama. Cover shows Hitler under the guillotine. The cover is worn with staining and the white area and dots are where the blue has worn off. The cover is the only page which is damaged. Great art deco look to the posters which are on very heavy stock. The binding was lost at some point so they are all separate. The calendar begins in August and runs through December which was the training period. The pages measures 15 and 3 quarters to 11 and 3 quarters of an inch. Propaganda message on the August month is "Here's a Killer that never Jams," and shows a bayonet. The September message is "She's prouder of you in a neat uniform." October's message is "For Service to the Reich." Subtle message is stay away from the women, who might be spies. November's message is "Know Your Enemy" and shows four of the enemies planes for identification. Finally December's message is "Hold that Light, a lighted cigarette can be seen thousands of feet away." Selling as a set but probably could be broken up and sold for more.
