Quartermaster label, dated 1944.
The regimental colors of the 595th Field Artillery Battalion bear the distinctive insignia of the unit in place of the Federal shield that would have been on the American Eagle’s chest. The lower flowing banner has the numbers of the unit, and all of this is fine silk embroidery on Crimson silk, finished in gold fringe all the way around expect on the hoist.
The size of the flag proper, is 3 x 4 feet. The quartermaster label is sewn inside the lower sleeve, Phila. Depot, 1944. The date is a bit hard to see, but there.
Very clean with just a few minor hard to see small stains.
The 595th Field Artillery Bn, was comprised of African-American soldiers stationed in the Pacific during WWII. They were a part of the 93rd Division, one of two all Black divisions in the U.S. Army.
