REPRESENTING THE VERY
AIRBORNE TROOPERS
WHOSE ACTIONS PAVED THE ROAD

FOR MANY
BANDS OF BROTHERS
TO EXIST

*****************************************************************

THESE AIRBORNE TROOPERS LIKE A BAND OF FOREST GUMPS WITHOUT THE GUMPS TRAVELED AN INNOVATIVE ROAD AND ALONG THE WAY CREATED, INNOVATED, APPROXIMATED,  DEVASTATED , FOUGHT AND PACIFIED ALL OPPOSITION IN THEIR PATH.FROM THE PACIFIC T0 OPERATION OCCUPATION JAPAN  TO SPECIAL KOREAN WAR AIRBORNE COMBAT UNIT  TO LEBANON AND VIETNAM  TO DESERT STORM AND Bosnia-Herzegovina TO 9-11 AND IRAQ FREEDOM TO AFGHANISTAN

THE 11TH WAS FIRST TO ENGAGE & DEFEAT A JAPANESE PARATROOPER INVASION AND CAPTURE THEIR STANDARD AND FLAG…. WHICH TODAY RESIDES AT WEST POINT

<TO THE WWII DARING RAID & RESCUE OF 2000 MEN WOMAN & CHILDREN DURING THE LOS BARIOS INTERNMENT CAMP COVERT RESCUE MISSION ….

“I doubt that any airborne unit in the world will ever be able to rival the Los Baños prison raid .It is the textbook airborne operation for all ages and all armies.”
GEN. COLIN POWEL

IT WAS THESE PARATROOPERS WHO,  AFTER THE DISASTROUS AIRBORNE DROPS INTO NORTH AFRICA AND SICILY, WHEN GEN. EISENHOWER WAS SET TO END THE 101ST AND 82ND AIRBORNE AS INDEPENDENT DIVISIONS BEFORE D-DAY, PERFORMED AN ACT OF ACCOMPLISHMENT THAT TURNED THE HEADS OF MILITARY LEADERS ACROSS THE GLOBE AND AND ALLOWED FOR THE 101ST AND 82ND TO BE .. AND BE PART OF D DAY

BY WAY OF PARACHUTE, GLIDER & HELICOPTER, AS WELL AS BY GROUND, BEACH, DESERT, MOUNTAIN & JUNGLE INVASION, THE 11TH RACKED UP THE HONORS.

THESE BRAVE DEDICATED PARATROOPERS DID MORE THAN WIN BATTLES, THEY CREATED THE FUTURE OF MOBILE WARFARE –AN ENTIRELY NEW MEANS OF ENGAGEMENT –AND CHANGED THE FACE OF MODERN WARFARE, A METHOD OF WARFARE THAT THE MODERN AMERICAN SOLDIER WOULD FOREVER WAGE LONG PAST THEIR OWN FUTURES.


 THE VERY CREATIONS AND METHODS OF THESE AIR MOBILE/ASSAULT TACTICS & OPERATIONS WOULD BE PROVEN BY THE SAME DIVISIONS THAT CREATED THEM AND THEN, THROUGH THEIR OFF SPRING, WOULD PROVE THEM IN THE FIELD DURING THE VIETNAM WAR, WHEN THE 11TH ONCE AGAIN MORPHED TO MEET THE NEEDS OF THE U.S. MILITARY BY LEADING AND DOMINATING THE BATTLE FIELDS AS THE:


The 1ST CAVALRY AIRMOBILE DIVISION
&

The 101st AIRBORNE 506th 3rd BATTALION
[ The 11th 187th Reg. 3 Bat. Iron Rakkasans]
THE MOST DECORATED AIRBORNE BATTALION

 

THIS NEW 1ST CAVALRY AIRMOBILE/AIRASSAULT DIVISIONS WOULD INTRODUCE HELICOPTER WARFARE INTO THE NAM ..

WHILE THE 11TH 187th REGIMENT 3RD BATTALION OF  IRON RAKKASANS AS THE   3rd BATTALION OF THE 506 PIR 101ST AIRBORNE BATTALION WOULD

Emerge from the Vietnam War as the Nations Most Highly Decorated Airborne Battalion!

The Iron Rakkasans would battle in  twelve major campaigns, conducting numerous air assaults and search and destroy missions. During a mission in March of   68 >Captain Paul W. Bucha, commander of D Company, received the Congressional Medal of Honor when he crawled through a hail of fire to single-handedly destroy
a machine gun bunker with grenades near Phuoc Vinh, Vietnam. When the battalion colors returned to Fort Campbell the unit had distinguished itself by earning two Valorous Unit Awards, and its third and fourth Presidential Unit
Citations for the battles of Trang Bang and Dong Ap Bia Mountain (“Hamburger Hill”).

TAKE TIME TO READ THE INCLUDED HISTORY OF THIS 11TH AB MWB™ 

LIKE THE FOREST GUMPS WITHOUT THE GUMPS. THE 11TH AIRBORNE DIVISION IS PICTURED AND WRITTEN  IN AIRBORNE HISTORY AS HAVING PARTICIPATED AND CONTRIBUTED TO THE MOST IMPORTANT DEVELOPMENTS AND  EVENTS IN THE 20TH CENTURY OF MODERN AIRBORNE WARFARE. 

DUE TO THE FACT THEY PROVED THE VALUE OF AIRBORNE DIVISIONS, THE 101ST AND 84TH, THOSE BAND OF BROTHERS, WOULD HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO JUMP INTO D DAY EUROPE AND THEIR OWN HISTORY.

THEIR PARTICIPATION  IN THE PACIFIC WAR EFFORT, SPECIFICALLY AS THE HAMMER THAT DROVE THE JAPANESE TO DEFEAT, GEN MACARTHUR WOULD WADE ASHORE, ONCE MORE TO HIS BELOVED PHILIPPINES. WHICH WOULD LEAD “THE MAC” TO SELECT THE 11TH TO SPEAR HEADING THE OCCUPATION AND RE-BUILDING OF JAPAN.

IN FACT, ONCE AGAIN, THE 11TH WOULD BE THE ONLY AIRBORNE DIVISION EVER TO GO TOE TO TOE IN  BATTLE AGAINST A  JAPANESE AIRBORNE OPERATION, DEFEATING THEM IN A FEROCIOUS BATTLE CAPTURING THEIR FLAG WHICH NOW IS DISPLAYED IN THE WEST POINT MUSEUM.J  .

THEY WOULD THEN SERVE IN KOREA BEFORE BEING SELECTED TO INVENT THE AIR ASSAULT DIVISION THAT WOULD COMBINE THE LEGENDARY HEROISM OF THE PARATROOPER WITH THE HORSE OF THE 20TH CENTURY, THE HELICOPTER.

THIS “INVENTION” WOULD CONTINUE WITH VALOR INTO THE PRESENT 21ST CENTURY IN IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN.

EVEN THEIR WITNESSING OF AN ATOMIC BOMB TEST WAS IN REALITY ANOTHER AIRBORNE TESTING!

THE 11TH SERVED IN THE PACIFIC. THEY SERVED IN KOREA, THEY SERVED IN JAPAN AND THE WOULD SERVE IN VIETNAM AS WHAT THEY HAD CREATED, THE 1ST CAVALRY ASSAULT DIVISION .

THE 11TH DID MORE FOR THEIR BAND OF BROTHERS THAN ANY OTHER PARATROOPER DIVISION IN THE WORLD

at Palo Beach, Leyte, 20 October 1944.

HAD IT NOT BEEN FOR THE 11TH AIRBORNE DIVISION, THERE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN INDEPENDENT US OR BRITISH AIRBORNE DIVISIONS AFTER THE SICILIAN INVASION.

THE 11TH AIRBORNE DIVISION WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR ENDING JAPANESE OCCUPATION OF THE PHILIPPINES & FREEING CAPTIVES OF ONE OF THE LOS BARIOS INTERMENT CAMP, DEFEATING A JAPANESE AIRBORNE BATTLE AND CAPTURING THEIR FLAG, WHILE GAINING BACK AMERICAN PRIDE AND SHORTENING THE PACIFIC WAR.

AS REWARD FOR THE 11TH’S ACTIONS IN THE PHILIPPINES, Gen MacArthur PERSONALLY CHOSE THE 11TH AIRBORNE DIVISION TO LEAD THE AMERICAN FORCES THAT WOULD OCCUPY JAPAN, HE ALSO CHOSE MEMBERS OF THE 11TH AS HIS PERSONAL GUARD; AND INSURED THAT ELEMENTS OF THE 11TH WOULD OCCUPY HOKKAIDO JAPAN – THE VERY HOKKAIDO SOVIET RUSSIA COVETED.

IN EARLY 1950, THE 187 PIR, 11TH AB, CALLED THE RAKKASANS [JAPANESE FOR FALLING DOWN UMBRELLA] PARTICIPATED IN THE LARGEST PEACETIME AIRBORNE MANEUVER IN HISTORY ,”OPERATION SWARM”. THE PERFORMANCE OF THE 187PIR WAS INSTRUMENTAL IN THE 187 PIR BEING SELECTED TO FORM AN AIRBORNE REGIMENTAL COMBAT TEAM TO ENTER THE KOREAN CONFLICT [WAR].

THE 11TH AIRBORNE DIVISION PARTICIPATED IN AN ATOM BOMB TEST.

THE 11TH AIRBORNE DIVISION WERE CHOSEN  TO DEVISE STUDY AND CREATE THE FIRST “AIR ASSAULT” CONCEPT, UTILIZING HELICOPTERS AND NEW TACTICS.THE “11TH AIR ASSAULT” [TEST] DIVISION WOULD EVENTUALLY BECOME THE 1ST CAVALRY DIVISION [VIETNAM].

THE 11TH WERE THE FIRST EVER TO BE AWARDED –AND GRANTED PERMISSION TO WEAR — THE FIRST AIR ASSAULT BADGE.

11TH AIRBORNE MILITARYWATCHBOX™
******************************************

11th Airborne
The 11th Airborne (“Angels”) was a United States Army airborne division that included one parachute and two glider infantry regiments and supporting troops. After rigorous training throughout 1943, the 11th would play its most important role of WWII:  proving to Supreme Allied Commander General Eisenhower that Airborne Troops were viable by being the key participants in the Knollwood Maneuver.

The Knollwood Maneuver was organized to determine the viability of large-scale American airborne formations following what was a disappointing performance during the Allied invasion of Sicily.

During the first half of 1944, the 11th were held in reserve until June of 1944, when they were transferred to the Pacific Theater of Operations for intense training and acclimatization, November of 1944 they were combat-ready and shipped to the Philippines.

In a traditional infantry role, the 11th Airborne saw action in November on the island of Leyte, and then participated in invasion of Luzon where two glider infantry regiments operated as conventional infantry, securing a beachhead before fighting their way inland.

The parachute infantry regiment was held in reserve for several days before conducting the division’s first airborne operation, a combat drop on the Tagaytay Ridge, where, reunited, the division participated in the Liberation of Manila, while two companies of divisional paratroopers conducted an audacious raid on the Los Baños internment camp, liberating two thousand civilians.

The 11th Airborne’s last combat operation of World War II was in the north of Luzon around Aparri, in aid of combined American and Philippine forces who were battling to subdue the remaining Japanese resistance on the island.

On 30 August 1945 the division was sent to southern Japan as part of the occupation force. Four years later it was recalled to the United States, where it became a training formation. One parachute infantry regiment was detached for service in the Korean War, but on 30 June 1958 the division was inactivated.

It was briefly reactivated on 1 February 1963 under the new name of the 11th Air Assault Division (Test), to explore the theory and practicality of helicopter assault tactics, before being finally inactivated on 29 June 1965.

The division’s personnel and equipment were transferred to the newly-raised 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile).

OPERATION HUSKY

On July 10, 1943, Operation Husky began as the first Allied operation towards the defeat of Germany in Europe. The invasion of the island of Sicily would include the first introduction of airborne paratroopers.

Afterwards, Allied Supreme Commander, General Eisenhower, stated:

I do not believe in the airborne division. I believe that airborne troops should be reorganized in self-contained units, comprising infantry, artillery, and special services, all about the strength of a regimental combat team … To employ at any time and place a whole division would require a dropping over such an extended area that I seriously doubt that a division commander could regain control and operate the scattered forces as one unit.” General Eisenhower

Eisenhower had reviewed the airborne role in Operation Husky and concluded that large-scale formations were too difficult to control in combat to be practical. Eisenhower believed, rather than Airborne Divisions, there should be small compact units assigned to existing infantry regiments; such as a specialty group that would be used in small operations, like 20 troopers dropped to protect the flank of a unit.

Gen. Leslie J. McNair, the overall commander of US Army ground forces, also had similar misgivings: once an airborne supporter, he had been greatly disappointed by the performance of airborne units in North Africa and more recently Sicily.

However, other high-ranking officers, including General George Marshall and British Field Marshal Montgomery [who participated in the Sicilian Invasion] believed otherwise. Marshall persuaded Eisenhower to set up a review board and to withhold judgement until the outcome of a large-scale maneuver planned for December 1943.

WYLER
WWII RADIUM DIALED

MILITARY INCAFLEX WRIST WATCH
29.3 MM
W/O CROWN

IMG_2331.JPG (114546 bytes)

THERE WERE TWO TYPES OF WWII WYLER
[NOT COUNTING THE OCCASIONAL WYLER WWII AUTO BUMPER]
A SINGLE SEALED CASE & A SNAP BACK CASE
THIS IS A RARE SINGLE CASED RADIUM DIAL WWII WYLER

NOTE: WE CANNOT IDENTIFY THIS WYLER AS BELONGING TO A PARTICULAR SOLDIER IN A PARTICULAR UNIT. WE CAN SAY IT WAS SOLD TO A SOLDIER WHO SERVED IN THE PACIFIC IN WWII AND WAS TRADED TO A PHOTOGRAPHER WHO LEFT IT TO HIS DAUGHTERIMG_3236.JPG (191494 bytes)

Paul Wyler presented his first 16 and 19-line precision movements to the public in 1927. The particularity of these was the Incaflex balance wheel, which was legendary at the time. The Wyler Incaflex balance wheel is protected along its diameter by two curved, elastic arms, which absorb any shocks to the balance wheel. In addition to producing his own calibres, Wyler also modified movements of other large-scale producers and sold these to other watch companies. In some cases, the basic calibre was changed so much that the movements should actually be considered as Wyler calibres. In 1937 the WYLER INTRODUCED THE WATER PROOF OR  RESISTANT watch that was not fitted with the conventional soft gaskets. The crystal was pressed in between the edge of the case and a pressed or screwed bezel, the gap between the winding shaft and the watch case was sealed hydraulically by fitting the winding shaft and bushing together, in the same material, to 1/500mm.

I HAD AN ORIGINAL 1940-43 WYLER MILITARY WATCH WITH CASE DIAL AND MOVEMENT SITTING FOR 3 YEARS. THE MOVEMENT & DIAL WERE SHOT. I LONGED FOR AN ORIGINAL BLACK WITH RADIUM MARKERS. IT SIMPLY NEVER CAME UP. THIS WATCH HAD A THICK WIDE WYLER BRASS WITH CHROME PLATED CRYSTAL RETENTION RING AND LARGE MILITARY STYLE UNSIGNED TWO PART STEM AND CROWN. AFTER OVER 1000 WYLER RESTORES. I KNEW WHAT I NEEDED. THEN DENISE FINDS ONE BY ACCIDENT. SHE SAYS LOOK NAT THIS NICE OLD WYLER, IT LOOKS MILITARY. SHE SAYS “SHOULD I BID?” I COULD NOT BELIEVE THAT NO ONE WENT FOR THIS BEAUTY. WE PICKED HER UP FOR 40 BUCKS! LOOK, THIS IS ONE OF ONLY A FEW THAT I HAVE DISCOVERED THAT,  W/O A DOUBT, IT WAS A TROOPERS WRIST WATCH. I SERVICED IT AND  DECIDED NOT TO NICKEL PLATE THE BEZEL BUT I DID ADD AN ORIGINAL NEW SIGNED “W” CRYSTAL AND THEN I PLACED A WWII REPRODUCTION US GOV ISSUE CLOTH STRAP AS SEEN ON THE MINI SERIES THE PACIFIC

IMG_9156.JPG (92139 bytes)

 ABOVE IS A PICTURE FROM OUR WWII GOV ISSUED 276 PAGE US MILITARY WATCH REPAIR MANUAL IT SHOWS  A MILITARY ISSUE STRAP UTILIZED ON WWII WATCHES
THE OLIVE DRAB MILITARY  STRAP OFFERED WITH THIS WATCH IS A NEAR EXACT COPY THE SAME AS SEEN ON THE MINI SERIES “PACIFIC” EPISODES 7, 8 AND 9

IMG_2320.JPG (137712 bytes)

THE WWII WYLER MODELS WERE ETA OR AS EBAUCHE WITH MOD INCAFLEX  AND HACKED SWEEP SECONDS. I HAD A VERY NICE MODEL BUT WAS MISSING PARTS.  IN ANY CASE, BAM I SEE ONE ON THE BAY DENISE SAYS TO ME “SHOULD I BID?” BOTTOM LINE IS THAT FOR ONLY 40 BUCKS SHE GOT IT!! A FTER IT WAS SHIPPED I REMOVED THE  BEZEL. IN FACT IT CAME OFF ON IT’S OWN. IT WAS TOO WIDE & LOOKED AS IF IT WAS PLACED TO MAKE IT LOOK BIGGER! BOTTOM LINE, THE ABOVE WYLER IS SUPER RARE IT IS THE SAME SIZE AS THE A-11

AAAAAAwyl98.jpg (24799 bytes)

ABOVE IS THE BREAK DOWN OF THIS WYLER I AM USING THIS TO SHOW YOU WHY IT WAS BETTER THAN ANY OTHER WATCH IN THE WORLD BACK THEN TOP IS INCAFLEX BALANCE. THE ONLY SHOCK ABSORBING BALANCE BOTTOM IS CASING NOTE THE TOP “RING” IS THE BEZEL IT ACTUALLY COMPRESSES THE CRYSTAL TO THE CRYSTAL WALL

IMG_2313.JPG (109094 bytes)

IMG_2317.JPG (130178 bytes)

THE STRAP IS LIKE THE ORIGINAL. NOTICE IT FITS LUGS PERFECTLY. STEEL WAS RATIONED DURING WWII MOST CASES WERE BASE BRASS WITH CHROME THE WYLER WAS EITHER STEEL SINGLE CASE OR CHROMED SNAP BACK CASED WIDE CHUNKY BEZELS WERE BRASS WITH CHROME THIS BEZELS WERE STEEL THE BEZEL ON THIS WYLER  ACTUALLY NEARLY REACHES THE TOP OF THE  CRYSTAL RATHER THAN BELOW

NOTE THE STRAP JUST LIKE THOSE MADE DURING WWII
