Description
 
This uniform is dated inside for October 20th 1953. It is also named on that same tag: "Gen "R.A. Lynch". This uniform is a 1956 (similar) Pattern and is a US Army, Blue Dress Uniform For Officer's Of The Regular Army. This uniform is in good condition. It has a few tiny moth nips in back, and a few in front. The very bottom of the front left lower skirt has some moderate damage as well. The inside lining is of the 1/2 lining style and is partially quilted and in excellent condition. Besides the inside pocket name and date tag, there is a inside outer pocket tailor's tag in bevo-like silver-grey embroidery which reads: "S.A. Berman, The Uniform Store, Pentagon Building, Washington D.C.". The front buttons are the deluxe 2 piece eagle types. They are sewn on with correct thread.

Each lower sleeve cuff has the extra wide flat gold braiding for a General. This gold braiding is nicely age tones and matches the age toning of the epaulettes. The epaulettes are beautifully age toned on the godl bullion. The rich black color velvet is perfect and deeper in pile than most encountered. Each of their silver General's stars are of a richly thick heavy silver bullion - and are quite striking! Each epaulette is sewn down and not removable. Each upper collar lapel has matching, non-hallmarked "US" pins, which each have 2 holes for the addition of initials for the state. It appars that state's initials never were applied (they would have been for "DE" for Delaware). Pinned to each lower collar lapel are 2 matching, and hallmarked, Medical Corps. caduces. Each has a "S" in enamel for a surgeon which is correct as General Lynch was a "Chief Surgeon".

The uniform once had a plastic "Lynch" name tage that was lost. The museum replaced it with a correct period piece. The uniform includes it's matching General's 2-gold stripe trousers. They have a matching tag inside which reads: "Gen. R.A. Lynch 10-20-53". The trousers are in very good condition with only a few nearly invisible tiny moth nips. To help complete this uniform grouping the museum has added a correct trouser belt and buckle, a correct early style, white color Officer's shirt (it's lightly stained and yellowish), and a black tie (this appears to be of a later period?). Lastly, is included 4 pages of biographical type information.

Comments from the Curator:

It took this museum almost 3 years to find some biographical information on General Lynch before hitting pay-dirt! He was an accomplished Doctor - Surgeon. Lynch served in WWI and in WWII (although biographical information on this period is very incomplete as of now). He had a long and detailed post WWII career as a Chief Surgeon. This attractive uniform only needs a pair of shoes and a hat to march on!
