    This piece is about 28" long assembled. The pipe bowl is china with a metal top that snaps up and down. The china portion is attached to the wooden stem by khaki colored strings. The bowl reads:
    Priteli
    George Hanson
    1st sgT. M328/Inf. USA
    v upominku z CSR
    por. CIZEK

    and lovely handpainted roses below it and the American flag in blue and white stripes with red stars on one side and the Czech flag on the other side.

    I asked my Mom if she recalled this piece and she didn't but when I mentioned Dad's unit she rattled off his info like it was yesterday. She will be 100 in November .

      This would have been during the occupation. A large portion of the Czechs supported the Nazis as the lesser of 2 evils in the fight against the Communists, along with many other countries.

      By the way, by "the occupation", I meant by the Allies.
