The European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal is a military decoration of the United States armed forces which was first created on November 6, 1942 by Executive Order 9265 [1] issued by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The decoration was intended to recognize those military service members who had performed military duty in the European Theater (to include North Africa and the Middle East) during the years of the Second World War. Colored bands representing Germany (on the ribbon's left side), Italy (on the ribbon's right side), and the United States (in the center of the ribbon) are visible in the ribbon. The brown and green areas of the ribbon represent the terrain of the area of conflict, which ranged from beaches and sand, to grass and woodlands, to mountains.

Originally known as the “EAME Ribbon”, the European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal is awarded for any service performed between December 7, 1941 and March 2, 1946 provided such service was performed in the geographical theater areas of Europe, North Africa, or the Middle East. For those service members who participated in multiple battle campaigns, service stars are authorized to the decoration with the arrowhead device awarded for any airborne or amphibious operations performed. The Fleet Marine Force combat operation insignia is also authorized for certain sailors.

The following campaigns are recognized by service stars to the European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal.[2]


* Egypt-Libya: June 11, 1942 – February 12, 1943
* Air Offensive, Europe: July 4, 1942 – June 5, 1944
* Algeria-French Morocco: November 8–11, 1942
* Tunisia: November 12, 1942 – May 13, 1943
* Sicily: May 14, 1943 – August 17, 1943
* Naples-Foggia: August 18, 1943 – January 21, 1944
* Anzio: January 22, 1944 – May 24, 1944
* Rome-Arno: January 22, 1944 – September 9, 1944
* Normandy: June 6, 1944 – July 24, 1944
* Northern France: July 25, 1944 – September 14, 1944
* Southern France: August 15, 1944 – September 14, 1944
* Northern Apennines: September 10, 1944 – April 4, 1945
* Rhineland: September 15, 1944 – March 21, 1945
* Ardennes-Alsace: December 16, 1944 – January 25, 1945
* Central Europe: March 22, 1945 – May 11, 1945
* Po Valley: April 5, 1945 – May 8, 1945

The American Campaign Medal was a military decoration of the United States armed forces which was first created on November 6, 1942 by Executive Order 9265 issued by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Originally issued as the “American Theater Ribbon”, the decoration was intended to recognize those service members who had performed duty in the American Theater of Operations during World War II.

To be awarded the American Campaign Medal, a service member was required to either perform one year of duty (cumulative) within the continental borders of the United States, or perform 30 days consecutive/60 non-consecutive days of duty outside the borders of the United States but within the American Theater of Operations. The American Theater was defined as the entirety of the United States to include most of the Atlantic Ocean, a portion of Alaska, and a small portion of the Pacific bordering California and Baja California.[1]

The eligibility dates of the American Campaign Medal were from December 7, 1941 to March 2, 1946. Service stars were authorized to any service member who was engaged in actual combat with Axis forces within the American theater. This primarily applied to those members of the military which had engaged in anti-U-Boat patrols in the Atlantic.[2]

The American Campaign Medal was issued as a ribbon for the entirety of the Second World War, and was only made a full-sized medal in 1947. The first recipient of the American Campaign Medal was General of the Army George C. Marshall.

The Fleet Marine Force combat operation insignia is authorized for certain sailors.

A similar decoration, known as the American Defense Service Medal existed for American defense service prior to the United States entry into World War II.

Grade 582 1/30-second timer used by the US Army-Airforce and known as Watch. Navigation (Ground Speed) Type A-8.

One of its most important uses of the A-8    was for navigation. Air speed indicators on WWII aircraft were controlled by air being forced into the air speed indicator as you flew your plane. The problem was that as you gained altitude less and less air entered the device and there was always a wind blowing and your speed relative to the ground is going to be either lower or higher depending on whether you are flying into the wind or with the wind.

To make corrections and get  your actual speed relative to the ground you needed to do some arithmetic. You had to figure your actual ground-speed and compare it to the airspeed indicator and then adjust your navigation calculations accordingly. The pilot or navigator would pick out, say, a pair of known parallel roads or other landmarks about 5 to 10 miles apart early in your flight and the measure the distance between them using the scale on a map, they would then click this 10 second timer on and then off as they    flew from one to the other. Some basic [for those that were trained] calculations and division and they had their actual ground speed.

13TH BOMBER SQUADRON DESIGN PATCH

 

WWII  DISNEY DESIGNED HAND PAINTED ON
CANVASS BOMBER FLIGHT PATCH

When Walt Disney was a young American ambulance driver in France during World War I, he was exposed to a new form art that would be titled "nose art". Nose Art was comic character painting on the cowls of military trucks and the sides of military airplanes. Nose Art had an immense morale boosting effect among the troops.

Disney returned to the United States in 1918 and became the premier cartoonist of the era.

In 1939, the a U.S. Naval unit made a request of Disney, they asked if he would draw up a mascot to paint on one of their new ships. Disney produced a "Bumble Bee in a Sailor's Hat, wearing Boxing Gloves". The Naval unit involved was so pleased with the design they adopted it the "Bumble Bee in a Sailor's Hat, wearing Boxing Gloves" as their unit insignia and began painting it on their jackets and other vehicles.

It was not long before the entire armed forces began requesting Disney creations for their mascot

With the help of six of his top artists, Disney attempted to fill the growing demand for unit mascots. The first two mascots produced by Disney in WWII went to the "Eagle Squadron" of the Royal Air Force, a unit of American volunteers flying for the British prior to American involvement in the war, and to the famed "Flying Tigers", another volunteer force operating out of China.

By the time of US involvement in WWII, while Disney and his staff were creating new designs, Warner Bros. joined in..

While Donald Duck was the most popular amongst Disney characters, Warner Brothers called up both Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny.

Besides the use of  then known popular cartoon characters, every creature that could come to mind was utilized including nearly 150 new dog and cat creations. Their creations swam, crawled, slithered, flew, and were featured just about in every conceivable fashion.

NOTE:
A) Mickey Mouse was a consensus objector because Disney did not want to establish Mickey with war
B)  The personal insignia of German Luftwaffe ace Adolf Galland was Mickey Mouse

With both Disney and Warner Brothers at the helm, nearly every unit  in the armed forces was sporting either a cartoon mascot or skulls, grim reapers, devils and other sinister mascots on  jackets, military equipment, uniforms, tanks,  planes, boats, jeeps, and even dinner plates & stationary were adorned with proud unit mascots.

By 1945 the Disney group & Warner Bros. had created over 1,800 Mascot Logos

Though some "field made" variants were created, most authentic squadron patches were embroidered on "Chenille", hand painted or decal on leather or hand painted/silk-screened on canvas.

In 1943, the Kellogg's Cereal company placed 36 small pin-back buttons each featuring a WWII squadron insignia in boxes of their Pep Cereal.

Introduced in 1923. Pep was a Kellogg Company brand of whole-wheat breakfast and long-running rival to Wheaties.

By the 1930's, Pep was one of the first "fortified" cereals with   vitamins. Extensive advertising, from print advertisements to sponsorship of Mutual Radio's Superman radio series helped keep the brand in the public's consciousness.

Poljot (Russian:, literally meaning "flight"), is a brand of watches from Russia, produced since 1964 by the First Moscow Watch Factory. It produced many historical watches used in many important space missions including world's first space watch worn by Yuri Gagarin.

Founded in 1930 under orders from Stalin, the First State Watch Factory was the first Serious Soviet watch and mechanical movement manufacturer. Via its USA-based trading company Amtorg, the Soviet government bought the defunct Ansonia Clock Company of Brooklyn, New York in 1929, and the Dueber-Hampden Watch Company of Canton, Ohio. It moved twenty-eight freight cars full of machinery and parts from the USA to Moscow in order to establish the factory. Twenty-one former Dueber-Hampden watchmakers, engravers and various other technicians helped to train the Russian workers in the art of watchmaking as part of the Soviet's First Five-Year Plan. Interestingly, the movements of very-early products were still stamped "Dueber-Hampden, Canton, Ohio, USA" (examples of these watches are very collectible today). In 1935 the factory was named after the murdered Soviet official Sergei Kirov.

On April 12th 1961 Yuri Gagarin became the first man in space. During his historic flight he wore a Sturmanskie pilots wristwatch (a transliteration of  which actually means "Navigator"). This watch was not specially commissioned for the flight, they were standard issue to all air force pilots at the time. The success of the mission however lead to the factory being awarded the Poljot (Russian: ?????) name in 1964.

In 1965 cosmonaut Alexei Leonov wore a FMWF Strela (transliteration actually means "Arrow") chronograph during his historic first space walk, thus cementing Poljot's place in space history. As with Gagarin's first flight, Leonov's watch was not specially commissioned. The Strela replaced the Shturmanskie as the standard issue pilots watch.

In the late 1970s, the Strela itself was replaced by a new breed of chronographs based around the (then new) 3133 movement (a Russian variation of the Swiss Valjoux 7734). Poljot 3133-based watches continued where their predecessors left off and were taken into space by cosmonauts from Russia, France, Germany and Ukraine. On the hand of cosmonaut V.V. Polyakov, a Poljot 3133-based watch set a space record for the longest space flight in history.

Though based on the Valjoux 7734 [the Soviets purchased the machinery from the Swiss] & many parts remaining interchangeable, the 3133 chronograph caliber was modified to improce accuracy, including a balance wheel that raised the beat frequency and   improved accuracy.

In the case of the need it is possible to shift the date by several days back through turning the crown in the reverse direction until the point "10.00 hours" and then back in the clock-wise direction to the point "01.00 hours" For any cycles of shifting the hands within the time interval from 01.00-10.00-01.00 hours, the date is changed by one day.
3. For starting and stopping the timer it is required to press the timer
button. Returning the timer to its starting (zero) position is done via
pressing the reset timer button after stopping the timer with the timer
button.
4. For the addition of timer intervals after every stopping it is required
to launch it again and stop the timer with the timer button.

3133
23 JEWELS

 

THE FACTS

The Poljot 3133 is a 23 jewel, cam controlled, chronograph, lever movement operating at 21,600 bph. It has a running second dial at the 9 o'clock position, a 30 minute counter sub-dial at 3 o'clock, and a sweep second counter mounted centrally along with the timekeeping minute and hour hands. A date display is provided at the 6 o'clock position. The chronograph functions are controlled through two buttons, one (at 2 o'clock) for starting and stopping the chronograph, one (at 4 o'clock) for resetting the second and minute counters. The cam prevents the action of the reset while the chronograph is running.

Though based on the Valjoux 7734 [the Soviets purchased the machinery from the Swiss] & the fact that many parts remain interchangeable, the 3133 chronograph caliber was modified to improce accuracy, including a smaller balance wheel that raised the beat frequency and  improved accuracy.

notice it has german cross
french fleur-di-lis

crown
anchor
swords
eagle

Charlemagne by Albrecht Dürer show the German eagle and the French Fleur-de-lis.but i cannot say after actually receiving it that it is german
but whether german french or what ever.. it is simply awesome .. it was larger than i thought

i added the "hook" piece rather than cut through the crown to mount on strap...

i also took it down to base metal, heavy copper plating with 24k gold finish..

the finish was gold plate.. this is an early 1900+ pieces!!!
