HERE IS THE STORY...Some years ago I shared a house with a WW II Army vet who was stationed in the Philippines. He saw combat during his time there and when I knew him, kept a loaded Model 1911 colt by his bed. Needless to say he suffered from some terrible PTSD. He eventually moved on, took the gun but left the flags. I have had them ever since.
SIGNAL FLAGS are a complete set as far as I can tell.
They had been shot at by a mischievous sniper in the day...apparently not happy with their then current situation.
So...they have battle scars... like many of the Greatest Generation.
Offering these mementos, to a lucky someone who understands and will cherish them... from a Great Era in history!

$45...obo
