Outstanding US Veteran Bringback Grouping, Kriegsmarine


This outstanding grouping belonged to a US Navy veteran named Armand Jolly, who lived to age 98. He served as a gunner’s mate aboard the USS Emmons, which saw action at North Africa, Normandy and Okinawa, where the ship was attacked by 5 Kamikaze aircraft. While in North Africa France, Jolly collected cutoff Kriegsmarine eagles, boards, and a fine Paris-manufactured KM Overseas cap. He also brought home a pair of wooden shoes and an Adrian helmet. There are expended shell casings, which Jolly may have kept as souvenirs after firing them. All of these items tell an incredible story. Below is a link to an article featuring Jolly telling his story. COA accompanies
