Booklet from the War Years called - Give 3... Get 4!

 

This was in reference to the Pay Roll Savings Plan.

 

It's just a short booklet, so I plan on scanning all the pages some time later and placing it in a PDF file.

Cool. The SP armband is a Navy Shore Patrol or the equivalent of an Army MP.

See:

ebay armband: Yellow on Black

Wonder why the colors are reversed on yours? (Remember-- I know nuddin about navel militaria---nor naval, either.)

 

What is the last image you posted? Is that a patch or sign or just a photo of an Engineer castle??
