Hickham Field Shield
« on: May 06, 2014, 11:31:44 AM »
I don't know anything about the recipient of this SHIELD,  all I know is what is written on the back of it

On the note on its reverse the words HICKHAM BOMBER appear   im presuming this was the base newspaper after  Dec 7th

Any thoughts on this piece would be gladly appreciated

Another nice piece Carl...which should be eminently researchable. Why not have a word with Rob / captainofthe7th?

Incredible piece. There may be rosters of those who were present at Pearl Harbor and Schofield during the attack.

Should be some interesting research Carl..

Thank goodness we are collectors, or these pieces of history and men's lives would be in a "dump" somewhere!

Carl,
Truly doesn't matter how far away it/you are, the operative word in your sentence is "caretaker".  That is what is important.  As JS says if it wasn't for collectors many many of these type items would now reside in a landfill.
