A small group of items giving some representation of the career for Colonel Robert H. Wescott.
This small grouping of material for Robert H. Westcott, represents a broad range of items from his career in the Army from 1899 to just after the World War. He is not listed in the 1925 Army resister; the last date where I can place him – as a Lt.Col. of the National Army in 1917. He probably retired after WWI and became part of a State guard, active into the 30’s perhaps.
He began his military career with Company G, 2nd Wisconsin Infantry, 12 May 1898 to 10 November. He became a 2nd Lieutenant in the regular army in April 1899, 1st Lt. in the 16th Infantry in 1901, and was still in this rank when he earned this bronze 1903 pattern long rang marksman’s prize in 1908 with the “SOUTHWESTERN” with the 1907 type swallow-tailed brooch. The medal is 40mm high. One link is missing and now held together by old thread, other wise in fine condition.
Some of the insignias includes a Spanish War period 16th Infantry officer’s collar insignia, pin back; early SAW- early 1900’s captain’ rank, pin back; major’s rank marked Sterling worn from June 1917 to 3 August of 1917; US National Army collar insignia pair for service uniform, 1902 rimless button make into a small brooch, Marksman C.M.T.C. badge; name tag metal framed with paper name insert, and two DUI insignia that came with the group.
All items are in very good to fine condition.
