PERMISSION WAS GIVEN TO
West End Watch CoMPANY

[1800 ] TO USE THE KINGS MARK
, AND, SPECIFICALLY  FOR THE JAWAN,
A WORD IN HINDI FOR SOLDIER.

West End WOULD market Swiss watches to Indian military men.
THE BROAD ARROW  WAS THINNER AND THE CASE BACK HAD

THE RESULT WAS THE
JARWAN
HMT

IMG_5038.JPG (128290 bytes)

THE   JARWAN/HMT PARA SHOCK MILITARY WATCH WITH BROAD ARROW CASE & DIAL MARKINGS & ALL STEEL CONSTRUCTION INCLUDING WATER PROOF SCREW CASE BACK. Jawan was first registered as a trade mark by the West End Watch Co.. Since the late 1800’s, West End Watch Co was a well established trade name in India . Jawan is a word in Hindi for SOLDIER. West End marketed Swiss watches to Indian military men. Within several years of the end of W.W.II, India began producing military issue watches under the HMT company logo utilizing a longer shafted version of the English   Broad Arrow on the back of their cases.

Jawan
Jawa (from Persian Jawan or Javan, meaning “young”) refers to a young man in Hindi, Urdu, Bengali, and Punjabi. In the Indian subcontinent, it has additionally taken on the reference to an infantryman, and is used in much the same meaning as soldier in English. This term is specific to all ranks below that of a Commissioned Officer, primarily used in the armed forces of India and Pakistan.

The West End Watch Company began there journey in 1886 from “The West End”, a district of the center of London. The market that West End catered to was the British controlled Mid-East and India. By 1914, West End was offering solid, well made and cased Trench and Pocket Watches. Specializing in the Indian Military and Civil Services, West End, with acceptance of the British   Military, produced Trench Watches that were marked C.S.for the Civil Service in India and C-tailed broadarrow-S for Indian Military personal under British control.

82nd AIRBORNE

William P. Burnham, who had previously commanded the 164th Brigade, led the division during most of its training and its movement to Europe. In early April, the division embarked from the ports in Boston, New York and Brooklyn to Liverpool, England, where the division fully assembled by mid-May 1918. From there, the division moved to mainland Europe, leaving Southampton and arriving at Le Havre, France,[6] and then moved to the British-held region of Somme on the front lines, where it began sending small numbers of troops and officers to the front lines to gain combat experience. On 16 June it moved by rail to Toul, France to take position on the front lines in the French sector. Its soldiers were issued French weapons and equipment to simplify resupply. The division was briefly assigned to I Corps before falling under the command of IV Corps until late August. It was then moved to the Woëvre front, in the Lagney sector, where it operated with the French 154th Infantry Division.


82ND-1.jpg (209345 bytes)


The 82nd Airborne Division is an active duty airborne infantry division of the United States Army, specializing in parachute assault operations into denied areas. Based at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, the 82nd Airborne Division is part of the XVIII Airborne Corps. The 82nd Division was constituted in the National Army on 5 August 1917, and was organized on 25 August 1917, at Camp Gordon, Georgia. Since its initial members came from all 48 states, the unit acquired the nickname All-American, which is the basis for its famed “AA” shoulder patch.

Famous soldiers of the division include Sergeant Alvin C. York, General James M. Gavin, Senator Strom Thurmond (325th GIR in World War II), Senator Jack Reed, R&B singer Lou Rawls, actor William Windom, country music singer Craig Morgan, former Syracuse University football coach Ben Schwartzwalder, fashion critic/choreographer Bruce Darnell and Congressman Patrick Murphy (the first Iraq War veteran elected to Congress).

St. Mihiel

The division relieved the 26th Division on 25 June. Though Lagney was considered a defensive sector, the 82nd Division actively patrolled and raided in the region for several weeks, before being relieved by the 89th Division.] From there it moved to the Marbache sector in mid-August, where it relieved the 2nd Division under the command of the newly formed First United States Army. There it trained until 12 September, when the division joined the St. Mihiel offensive..

IMG_5063.JPG (147776 bytes)


Once the First Army jumped off on the offensive, the 82nd Division engaged in a holding mission to prevent German forces from attacking the right flank of the First Army. On 13 September, the 163rd Infantry Brigade and 327th Infantry Regiment raided and patrolled to the northeast of Port-sur-Seille, toward Eply, in the Bois de Cheminot, Bois de la Voivrotte, Bois de la Tête-d’Or, and Bois Fréhaut.

IMG_5039.JPG (145966 bytes)

Meanwhile, the 328th Infantry Regiment, in connection with the attack of the 90th Division against the Bois-le-Prêtre, advanced on the west of the Moselle River, and, in contact with the 90th Division, entered Norroy, advancing to the heights just north of that town where it consolidated its position. On 15 September, the 328th Infantry, in order to protect the 90th Division’s flank, resumed the advance, and reached Vandières, but withdrew on the following day to the high ground north of Norroy.

On 17 September, the St-Mihiel Operation stabilized, and the 90th Division relieved the 82nd’s troops west of the Moselle River. On 20 September, the 82nd was relieved by the French 69th Infantry Division, and moved to the vicinity of Marbache and Belleville, then to stations near Triaucourt and Rarécourt in the area of the First Army.

IMG_5068.JPG (150668 bytes)

During this operation, the division suffered heavy casualties from enemy artillery. The operation cost the division over 800 men. Among them was Colonel Emory Pike, the first member of the 82nd to be awarded the Medal of Honor. The division was then moved into reserve until 3 October, when it assembled near Varennes-en-Argonne prior to returning to the line. During this time, the division trained and prepared for the war’s final major offensive at Meuse-Argonne.

The division was next moved to the Clermont area, located west of Verdun on September 24. They were stationed there to act as a reserve for the US First Army. George B. Duncan, former commander of the 77th Division, relieved Burnham on 3 October, and Burnham subsequently served as military attaché in Athens, Greece.

IMG_5069.JPG (147240 bytes)

On the night of 6/7 October 1918, the 164th Infantry Brigade relieved troops of the 28th Division, which were holding the front line from south of Fléville to La Forge, along the eastern bank of the Aire River. The 163rd Infantry Brigade remained in reserve. On 7 October, the division, minus the 163rd Infantry Brigade, attacked the northeastern edge of the Argonne Forest, making some progress toward Cornay, and occupied Hill 180 and Hill 223.

 

The next day it resumed the attack. Elements of the division’s right flank entered Cornay, but later withdrew to the east and south. The division’s left flank reached the southeastern slope of the high ground northwest of Châtel-Chéhéry. On 9 October, the division continued its attack, and advanced its left flank to a line from south of Pylône to the Rau de la Louvière.

For the rest of the month, the division turned to the north and advanced astride the Aire River to the region east of St-Juvin. On 10 October, it relieved troops of the 1st on the right, north of Fléville, as far as a new boundary extending north and south through Sommerance. It then attacked and captured Cornay and Marcq, and established the front just to their south.

82ND-3.jpg (242399 bytes)

On 11 October, the right flank of the division occupied Sommerance and the high ground north of la Rance Rau while the left advanced to the railroad south of the Aire. The next day, the 42nd relieved the 82nd’s troops in and near Sommerance, allowing it to resume the attack. The 82nd passed through part of the Hindenburg defensive position, and reached a line just north of the road from St-Georges to St-Juvin.

On 18 October, the division relieved elements of the 78th as far to the left as Marcq and Champigneulle. Three days later it advanced to the Ravin aux Pierres. On 31 October, the 82nd, except the artillery, was relieved by the 77th Division and the 80th Division, and assembled in the Argonne Forest near Champ-Mahaut. On 2 November, the division concentrated near La Chalade and Les Islettes, and, on 4 November, moved to training areas in Vaucouleurs. On 10 November, it moved again to training areas in Bourmont, where it remained until the 11 November armistice. During this campaign the division suffered another 7,000 killed and wounded. A second 82nd soldier, Alvin C. York, won the Medal of Honor during this campaign.

NOW TO MAKE THIS BEAUTY A TALKING PIECE OF HISTORY, WE CELIBRATE THE 82ND  WITH A PATCH. AND, BECAUSE ROCK HAS ABOUT 200 MAPS . FROM WHEN MAPS FIRST BECAME POPULAR TO MILITARY MAPS USED IN ALL THE WARS THE US PARTICIPATED IN/

SO,  WE ADD AN OIL MAP [SOAKED IN A MIXTURE OF OILS] THAT WAS/IS  RESISTANT TO WATER FROM A GROUP OF FRENCH MILITARY MINI MAPS CREATED FROM 1912 TO 1918. THESE OILED MINI MAPS ARE ACTUALLY OF LARGE AREAS WHERE BATTLES WERE FOUGHT OR CITIES WON OR LOST OR CHANGED HANDS .

FOR THE ORDINARY SOLDIER IN A TRENCH, TO FLYERS OVER A BATTLE FIELD IN ENEMY TERITORY, TO THE FIRST TANK CREWS [PATON] AND TO OFFICERS, THESE MINI MAPS WERE/ARE FULLY DETAILED MAPS THAT WILL FOLD TO A SMALL SIZE -SOME EVEN TO A POSTAGE STAMP MAP SIZE. THEY CAN GET WET OR FROZEN OR HEATED, YET THE INKS USED DO NOT RUN NOR ARE THE MAPS HARMED AND, NOT ONLY DID THEY ASSIST IN FORAGING, BATTLES AND OTHER AREAS OF MILITARY AND CIVILLIAN CIONCERNM BUT WERE EXCELEENT FOR POW ESCAPEES AND BEHIND THE LINES FLYERS AND SOLDIERS. THEY COULD BE SECRETED AND USED FOR SURVIVAL OR ATTACK.

THIS ONE IS A BEAUTY AND WE HAVE A HISTORY OF THIS MAP TYING IT TO THE 82ND, WE WILL ADD IT AS SOON AS ROCK COMPLETS IT.

82 IN NAM

The 82nd Airborne Division is an active duty airborne infantry division of the United States Army, specializing in parachute assault operations into denied areas. Based at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, the 82nd Airborne Division is part of the XVIII Airborne Corps. The 82nd Division was constituted in the National Army on 5 August 1917, and was organized on 25 August 1917, at Camp Gordon, Georgia. Since its initial members came from all 48 states, the unit acquired the nickname All-American, which is the basis for its famed “AA” shoulder patch. Famous soldiers of the division include Sergeant Alvin C. York, General James M. Gavin, Senator Strom Thurmond (325th GIR in World War II), Senator Jack Reed, R&B singer Lou Rawls, actor William Windom, country music singer Craig Morgan, former Syracuse University football coach Ben Schwartzwalder, fashion critic/choreographer Bruce Darnell and Congressman Patrick Murphy (the first Iraq War veteran elected to Congress).

The 82nd went into action in Vietnam. During the Tet Offensive, which swept across the Vietnam in January 1968, the 3rd Brigade was en route to Chu Lai within 24 hours of receiving its orders. The 3rd Brigade performed combat duties in the Hu? – Phu Bai area of the I Corps sector. Later the brigade moved south to Saigon, and fought in the Mekong Delta, the Iron Triangle and along the Cambodian border, serving nearly 22 months. While the 3rd Brigade was deployed, the division created a provisional 4th Brigade, consisting of 4th Battalion, 325th Infantry; 3rd Battalion, 504th Infantry; and 3rd Battalion, 505th Infantry. The Division Artillery also created an additional battalion, 3rd Battalion, 320th Artillery, to support the 4th Brigade.

From 1969 into the 1970s, the 82nd deployed paratroopers to South Korea and Vietnam on more than 180DBT (Days Bad Time) for exercises in potential future battlegrounds. The division received three alerts. One was for Black September 1970. Paratroopers were on their way to Amman, Jordan when the mission was aborted. In May 1971 they were used to help national guard and Washington DC police to round up and arrest protestors. Nine years later in August 1980, the 1st Battalion (Airborne), 504th PIR was alerted and deployed to conduct civil disturbance duty at Fort Indiantown Gap, Pennsylvania, during the Cuban refugee internment. War in the Middle East in the fall of 1973 brought the 82nd to full alert. In May 1978, the division was alerted to a possible drop into Zaire. In November 1979, the division was alerted for a possible operation to rescue the American hostages in Iran. The division formed the nucleus of the newly created Rapid Deployment Forces (RDF), a mobile force at a permanently high state of readiness.
