Set of WWII US 8th Cavalry DI's
Item #: WR278
This is a set of distinctive unit insignia for the 8th Cavalry Regiment used in World War II. This regiment was formed in 1866 during the Indian Wars and has seen continuous service since. The regiment has fought in every major conflict America has been involved in, with the exception of WWI. They were already engaged in the Punitive Expedition in Mexico from 1916 through 1920. During WWII the 8th Cavalry was under divisional command of the 1st Cavalry Division, and fought on foot in the Pacific theater. As Di's go, these are among the more unique ones. In order to have a matching set, the "Mustang" has to be facing in two separate directions. These are in very good condition, with no chips in the paint and no other damage. The pins and closures are in perfect working order on both devices. There are no makers marks on the back, just two painted on inventory numbers. This was done by the U.S. Cavalry Association museum located at Ft. Reno, Oklahoma, where these were purchased from.
