Military ID Bracelets and Fobs


Military bracelets are shown in roughly chronological order (from WWI to the interwar years, to WWII).  Both ID bracelets and sweetheart bracelets are shown together in this section.  The individual descriptions should make it obvious if it is an ID or a sweetheart.  Typically, bracelets measuring 6 to 6-1/2 inches are for women, and larger sizes for men.


MG Joseph Swing CG 11th Airborne Division Military ID Bracelet


This is a military heavy STERLING silver ID bracelet presented to Major Joseph Swing, Commanding General 11th Airborne Division by members of his command staff on Christmas Day, 1945.  At the time, the 11th A/B was the occupation force of most of Japan.

The bracelet has an applied paratrooper wing with a separately applied 11th Airborne Division distinctive unit insignia device on the risers.

There is some significant, but moderate, signs of long wear and deep tarnish from age.  The back of the ID has the engraved inscription "To The General from His Troops Japan 25th Dec. 1945" in three lines.  It is stamped STERLING.  Both claws of the clasp are also stamped STERLING.  It measures 8 inches long overall.  There is a split ring fastener that would break if caught or tangled during a jump.
