A few years ago I was hitting local auctions looking for swords when this pennant came up. I had no idea what it was for but bid on it because it had a TR IC 1st Class and an NSKK Eagle pinned on it. There was also the US Collar Discs and GC ribbon that I left on. I've looked everywhere but have not found another. Anyone seen one?
I know the '44 Maneuvers were cancelled due to the Normandy Invasion. So this may end up being more valuable than the IC that came with it.

Brian,

I think the Louisiana Maneuvers were in about 1940. Lots of horses and a few careers decided. The US Army at dawn, as it were.

1944? I have not heard of operations then.

Regards,
Dave

Back when I bought it I found a reference to it stating the Maneuvers were cancelled for '44 due to the upcoming invasion of Europe. I can't find that sourcce today.
I did find some photos taken at Louisiana Maneuvers
Fort Polk, Louisiana
02/24/1944 - 03/25/1944. I may see if Ft Polk has a Historian.
I also found pennants from 1940-43, none for '44. There were Maneuvers in TN & NC as well.

"News Flash- Big Time Update"
There is an identical pennant to mine for sale on Ebay, $40. Only difference is the color.
