This uniform is of the June2nd, 1964 period. It's dating is derrived by the date that this General received his 2nd star. This uniform is a US Marine Corps., Khaki Service Coat (or Uniform). This uniform belonged to a Engineer, Major General (i.e.: a 2 Star General), named: "George E. Tomlinson". The inside of this uniform is 1/2 lined and in MINT condition. Sewn on the face of the inside pocket is a beautiful tailor's tag with this inscription: "Lowe Tailors, 56 Maryland Ave., Annapolis, MD". Sewn above this inner pocket were all 3 of Tomlinson's custom embroidered initials tags of bevo-like weave. The 1st and 3rd initials tags are missing, however his middle tag is still present and has the letter "T". The outside of this uniform rates a low-MINT condition as it is perfect except for 2 microscopes tiny stains that are near invisible (one on the lower front pocket and one on the rear left shoulder).
Each upper collar lapel has non-matching, hollowback, screw back, eagle globe and anchor insignia. Both correctly face inward (these E.G.A.'s almost never match!). All buttons appear matching, back marked, and are of the removable type. The removable belt has its removable buckle and slider. Each shoulder has the double star insignia of a Major General. They are mismatched but are still
nevertheless! Each set is of the soldered bar variety and each set has a different hallmark. They are identical in every respect and yet made by 2 different companies (WOW - how rare is that!). And these stars have the most SPECTACULAR! age toning we have ever seen. They appear to be of age toned sterling silver, but they are not hallmarked as "sterling" so it is anybody's guess if they are real silver or not. But they are truely beautiful (they have to be seen to be appreciated). There is a magnificent custom made, 10 ribbon bar. Each ribbon is matching and has been hand sewn on to a custom khaki color cloth backing that exactly matches the uniform cloth.
The award ribbons are for: the "Legion of Merit Medal", the "Bronze Star Medal" with a "V" device for valor and with a bronze oak leaf cluster, the "American Defense Service Medal", the "American Comapaign Medal", the "Asiatic/Pacific Campaign Medal" with 3 bronze stars, the "WWII Victory Medal", the "National Defense Service Medal", the "Army of Occupation Medal", the "Philippine Liberation Medal" with 1 bronze star, and the "Philippine Independence Ribbon". The uniform includes a near MINT condition pair of trousers. They have a U.S.M.C. bevo-like cloth tag sewn inside, and there is also a sewn in name tag (unfortunately it was never filled out). There is also a beautiful trouser belt and buckle. Ths buckle is shiney and hallmarked. This uniform also includes a khaki color tie.
Comments from the Curator:
This is a great General's uniform grouping for all those U.S.M.C. collectors/buffs out there. We have a page and a half of biographical information on General Tomlinson's great military career. He was a
advanced engineer/instructor/consultant. But the coolest part us that he saw much combat action in WWII as a Colonel. He participatedin the New Georgia and Bougainville campaigns as "Engineer Officer, Service Command, Fleet Marine Force Pacific". Also in WWII he served as "Officer in Charge of
Engineering Supply in the South Pacific"! Also he was the "Task Force Engineer for Amphibious Operations", the the Peleliu, Angaur Island, and Ulithi Island campaigns. And his WWII serive bio. goes on and on! Marine Corps. General's uniform groupings are far more rare than most Army equivalents, and if ever found are very pricy! This General's grouping is spectacular! He not only has been awarded 2 Bronze Star Medals, but one of them is for the much coveted and rare "V" for
device. Add to that his 3 bronze star devices for 3 campaigns in the Pacific in WWII, and you get the picture. For all you USMC buffs out there - here is the chance you have been waiting for.
