This shirt is undated. It is a US Army, Shirt, Man's, Cotton Santeen, OG-107. This shirt and one other we are keeping for the museum's collection were recently acquired from an advanced collector of General's uniforms who obtained this shirt uniform directly from General (i.e.: a 4 Star General) Wickham in 1992. This shirt uniform is in MINT condition. Pinned on the collar are subdued metal 4 star insignia. They are correct replacements as the General presumably kept the original set to wear on his other uniforms. Swapping metal insignia from one uniform to another is an age old soldier practice (which often is why metal insignia is often mismatched).
Direct embroidered on the right breast is his name of "Wickham". The standard "US Army" name tape is not used as it is also (kindly!) direct embroidered on the left breast as well. General Wickham also has 3 awards all direct embroidered again on the left breast. They are for the awards of a Combat Infantryman's Badge, a Basic Parachutist Badge, and the Air Assault Badge. Sewn at the top of his right shoulder sleeve is a subdued cloth patch for past
service in the 1st Cavalry Division. It is not a "reversed" patch as many a ole' cavalryman would hope; it's just a standard patch. Sewn near the top of his left shoulder sleeve is his subdued cloth current service patch for the 8th US Army. Included with this uniform are 19 pages of biographical career information on General Wickham. Also included is a copy of a portrait photo of the General as well.
Comments from the Curator:
For those of you who know us, you know that this museum rarely de-accessions any Tank or Cavalry items. This is a rare exception as this shirt is 1 of a 2 shirt acquisition, and they are nearly identical. So off to the world number 2 shirt uniform goes. If you do not know about this General - then you should as he is VERY well known. He has loads of Cavalry and Airborne in him as well as much
in Vietnam. He was awarded an amazing 25 awards and medals (WOW - that's better than General Richardson's uniform we have to offer). Reading about him is like a trip through Cavalry and Airborne history. This is a wonderful chance to obtain a very well known combat General's uniform.
