"Salat" på uniform hos krigsseiler.

Recommended Posts

Jeg har vært så heldig i dag å få se uniformen til en krigsseiler. Han tjenestegjorde i US-marinen og det var "salat" eller dekorasjoner på uniformen. Det hadde vært kjekt å vite hva disse står for. Hat het Ole Breilid fra Fresvik i Sogn og Fjordane. Han seilte som kaptein og styrmann på norske båter tidlig i 2. verdenskrig.
