Offering an old Java-China-Japan Lyn map from a local estate. Printed in Great Britain By George Philip & Son Limited. The estate had a few items of Vice Admiral Francis C. This map and another was found inside a box with his name on it and China Map written on it. I bought some of his photos as well as a family crest all wrapped in the San Francisco Chronicle newspaper dated 1987; the year he passed away. This map has been well used has a hole and and I don’t have the missing piece. There are many old tape repairs on the back and the map came lose from the top wooden rod. The map is still attached to the bottom rod. The rods appear to be mahogany. I don’t see a date on the map but it may be below the bottom rod. The map not including rods measures approx. 28 3/4 across by 31 inches long. Please feel to ask any questions. The map and one photo of Vice Admiral Francis C. Denebrink, a Navy veteran of both World Wars and of the Korean War, in which he was responsible for the logistic support of all United States naval forces, died April 8 1987 at Letterman Army General Hospital in San Francisco. He was 90 years old. In World War II, Admiral Denebrink, in command of the cruiser Brooklyn, which was on the scene when the American transport Wakefield, formerly the passenger liner Manhattan, caught fire Sept. 3, 1942, on her way from Europe to New York. In World War I he served on the destroyer Warrington, based at Queenstown, Ireland, and Brest, France. For 12 years after the war he alternated between sea and land duty.

For your consideration is this WWI Era U. Marine Corps Pistol Expert shooting badge made in Silver by Bailey Banks & Biddle of Philadelphia, PA. I’ve collected USMC shooting badges for decades and have never seen another BB&B second pattern (1915 to present) expert badge. I’ve owned several BB&B rifle expert badges, and several BB&B “colt” (pre 1915) pistol badges, but cannot even find record of another of these online. The ladder bar is not likely a BB&B made item, although very fine in its own right and also made of Sterling. The detail and craftsmanship of this Pistol Expert badge has no equal – I’ve owned all known varieties at one point, and this one takes the cake. See our high-resolution pictures for fine detail work on the pistols and wreath especially. This piece is in exceptional original condition as shown. Please see our other listings for other rare shooting badges and pins. Please see our other listings, and check back often as we typically list 30-50 high-end estate items each week with No Reserve!

Former Japanese Army Photo Album China Guangzhou 1938-40 Approximately 170 photos Please check on the photos for detailed condition of the product. All you can see on this photo will be included in a set of a package. Approximately 170 photo albums of former Japanese soldiers containing photographs of Guangzhou, China between 1938 and 1940. On the first page of the cover of the photo album, there is a censorship stamp of the Guangzhou Jiangnan Kenhei Squad on June 21, 1940. This is probably because the soldier in Guangzhou, who was the owner of this photo album, finished his military service. The Japanese troops invaded and occupied Guangzhou around October 1938, so there is no doubt that it was during this period. Most of the photos were probably taken in Guangzhou. Therefore, it will be a valuable material at that time to know the shooting time and place. Although it is about the same, the cover and mount are peeled off. Some photos are peeled off. This is an old item, so please understand before purchasing. We will carefully deliver using the packing material. Europe, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Australia.

Photo Album USS OAHU Yangtze River Gunboat US Navy Sailor China Shanghai 1930s
An outstanding US Navy or Marine sailor’s photo album. A singular production of more than 500 photographs taken or acquired while assigned to the Yangtze River gunboat USS Oahu in the early-1930’s. The album measures approximately 15 x 11. It is string bound and its flexible board panels are covered in a faux-reptile skin cloth. There are a bit more than 500 photographs (I count 513) mounted to the rectos and versos of 37 black paper leaves, loosely fit into dry corner mounts (and easily and safely removable). The majority of photos, about 350 of them, appear to be original snapshots captured by the soldier. They range in size from about 3 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ to 5 1/2″ x 3 1/2″. This section is in the front and separated by about a dozen blank leaves, then proceeded by about 160 more photographs which appear to be a blend of commercial or souvenir prints and photos captured by a more skilled photographer. Most of these measure approximately 4″ x 3″ and there are some phenomenal cultural images among them. There are also about 8 enlarged photographs, approximately 8″ x 10, ” including the excellent identified and dated photograph of the Oahu crew shown here in the first image. It is dated 1932 and is the only dated photo in the album, though the balance of contents seem firmly within the same timeframe. There is no notation to any of the album pages and we’ve carefully removed several of the prints and haven’t found any notations to print versos either. This is fresh from a local, multi-generational estate and is as-found by me ; nothing has been added or removed. I strongly suspect the soldier was from the St. This is a significant photographic document of the Yangtze Patrol captured during an important time immediately preceding the outbreak of World War II in the Pacific. I have additional images of the album available. Please send along any questions and thanks for looking.
