WWII USN PhM1c USS Bowie APA-137
There hasn't been much purchasing on my side for the last month or so but I did find a few pictures I haven't had a chance to post here. This one is a Jumper belonging to a Pharmacist Mate who was on the USS Bowie APA-137, a late war attack transport that participated in the Battle of Okinawa dropping off her troops on May 10th. Since it isn't an Iwo Jima related jumper I didn't pick it up but a very solid jumper none the less!
