I JUST INHERITED THIS FROM MY DAD. THEY BELONGED TO HIS OLDER BROTHER, MY UNCLE JIM. HE WAS A WWII AVENGER PILOT, OFF THE HORNET AT GUADALCANAL, ARRIVING JUST AFTER MIDWAY, OR HIS STORY MAY HAVE ENDED THERE.HE LATER WENT ON TO FLY SIKORSKY HO5S's, SEA BATS, AND THE SEA KING, FOR THE HS-4 BLACK KNIGHTS HELICOPTER ANTI-SUB SQUADRON OFF THE YORKTOWN, THEN THE PRINCETON. HE RETIRED SHORTLY AFTER THE GULF OF TONKIN INCIDENT IN 1966 WHERE HE RESCUED SEVERAL DOWNED AIRMEN, EARNING HIM THREE SIKORSKY RESCUE AWARDS FOR HEROISM UNDER FIRE.THIS IS HIS ID BRACELET GIVEN TO HIM BY HIS FLIGHT CREW ON THE SEA BAT THAT I FOUND IN HIS MILITARY PIN/BADGE CIGAR BOX. HIS CREW - THEIR NAMES ENGRAVED ON THE BACK - GAVE HIM THIS SMALL GIFT AFTER HE PILOTED THEM SAFELY WHILE UNDER FIRE TO AND FROM A RESCUE IN OPEN WATER. I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS MADE - PROBABLY BRASS- AND THERE ARE NO MAKERS MARKS. LET THE PHOTOS BE THE JUDGE - IF YOU NEED MORE PIX OR HAVE ANY QUESTIONS - ASK ME.THANKS FOR LOOKING AND GOOD LUCK!
