This Military doll/manikin still has original hang tag . Sold during WWII. I believe he is a Navy man ? Although he has blue trim so not sure is he USA Navy to the Military experts out there ?
Thanks telling me branch and or country .Circa 1940.s

    I believe he is USA Navy but did they add blue trim instead of scarf or tie ?
  2. scottvez scottvez, 3 years ago
    Looks like US Navy-- can you add some full body shots?

    Thanks for sharing,

    I found a photo of him Scott . So I won't need to unpack him . He is USA and I made an error as he is 15 " tall and there is no place to edit title . I have a blind spot so excuse that people he is 15"

    Thanks for sharing-- they are interesting homefront items.

    I really like the tag "Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition".

    Was there ever an Elvis Presley manikin real life size or smaller one?
  11. Manikin Manikin, 3 years ago
    Benking I have seen full size Elvis statues and also Elvis dolls not really what I call a mannequin but I would say yes on full size . I am just not sure on year they made them but the dolls came out in late 70's and into the 90's .

    Thank you Brat :-)

    Thanks again Manikin!

    As the roof leaks, I had to change mine from one room to another.
    I had an unique Elvis cardboard life size which he had given.

    It will take me hours or one to get to it as boxes are stacked!

    For now I just posted doll on china as I told you just for you first choice, is that the right category?

    The phrase "Praise The Lord and Pass The Ammunition" was a song written by Frank Loesser and published as sheet music in 1942 by famous Music Corp. The words "Praise The lord and Pass the Ammunition" was uttered by a Navy Chaplain Howell Forgy when he was aboard the USS New Orleans during the attack on Pearl Harbor Dec 7th 1941.

    Manikin, I just saw your response on the gorgeous Doll you had posted a couple of days ago, and I went looking for the other doll like her. Is this he? I had loved him before, but now I appreciate him even more. The "Praise the Lord and Pass The Ammunition" is wonderful. Sending you warm breezes so your Spring will awaken....xo miKKo : )
