"Tudor Plate" was a line of Oneida plated wares. The company was called Oneida Community, at least until 1935, when it became Oneida Ltd. When WWII came about, the U.S. Government needed to supply all of the Armed Forces, so at times 'civilian' wares were acquired and stamped with the initials of the Branch (in this case 'U.S.N.' for the U.S. Navy) and pressed into service. This Marine who owned the spoon 'requisitioned' it from one of the transport ships that he was on and carried it through the War. 1 x 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing Patch 2 x Aviation Radioman USN Attached to USMC Specialty Rate 3 x Corporal Patches 1 x Sharpshooter Badge 1 x Qualification Badge with “Small Bore” Bar 2 x Asiatic Campaign Military Ribbons (One with 2 x Service Stars) 1 x American Campaign Military Ribbon 1 x WWII Victory Military Ribbon 1 x Navy Unit Commendation Military Ribbon 1 x WWII Marine Honorable Discharge Patch 2 x WWII Honorable Discharge “Ruptured Duck” Lapel Pins 11 x Eagle, Globe & Anchor Screw Back Pins (Small) 4 x Eagle, Globe & Anchor Screw Back Pins (Large) 6 x Uniform Buttons (Small) 4 x Uniform Buttons (Large) 2 x Uniform Buttons (with bendable straight bars on back) 21 x Civilian Speed-skating Medals 3 x Screw Backs for Pins [Seller's Inventory # M-001]
