Original U.S. WWII China Burma India Silver Enamel Bracelet Collection

Item Description

Original Items: One-of-a-kind Set. This is a set of three silver bracelets from World War Two from the China Burma India Theater. China Burma India Theater (CBI) was the United States military designation during World War II for the China and Southeast Asian or India–Burma (IBT) theaters. Operational command of Allied forces (including US forces) in the CBI was officially the responsibility of the Supreme Commanders for South East Asia or China. However, US forces in practice were usually overseen by General Joseph Stilwell, the Deputy Allied Commander in China; the term "CBI" was significant in logistical, material and personnel matters; it was and is commonly used within the US for these theaters.

Well-known Allied units in the CBI included the Chinese Expeditionary Force, the Flying Tigers, transport and bomber units flying the Hump, the 1st Air Commando Group, the engineers who built Ledo Road, the 5307th Composite Unit (Provisional), popularly known as "Merrill's Marauders", and the 5332d Brigade, Provisional or 'Mars Task Force', which assumed the Marauders' mission.

Included in the unique set are the following bracelets:

- Silver rectangular face with silver chain and clasp. The face has enamel CBI insignia as well as the countries of China Burma and India which are named and are different colors. Stamped SILVER on underside of the face. Theater made. It is engraved ROY L. MANIS. His obituary can be found at this link.

- Silver rectangular face with silver chain and clasp. Enamel American flag, CBI insignia and Army Air Force insignia along with China, Burma, India. Stamped SILVER on underside of the face. Theater made.

- Silver oval convex face with silver chain and clasp. Enamel CBI shield with RUBYE, 1943, and China, Burma, India all in enamel and engraved on the reverse Love Bud. Theater made.

Fantastic little collection of handsome theater made bracelets for American soldiers who fought in the CBI during World War Two.
