“Technician” is a word some may associate with nerds. Some would imagine a skinny guy with thick glasses and braces and many other things. But don’t mistake these men, the technician corporals, with weaklings. After all, they’re soldiers.
They may look harmless, but they’re ready to serve their country while you’re binge-watching the newest TV series on the internet. Or, at least, they were.
During World War II, the US army soldiers wore uniforms like the one above. The technicians of the fifth grade, precisely. You may call them tech corporals.
They were distinguished by the “T” imprinted on the standard chevron. And, of course, they were armed, as well.
The uniform in the pictures is an original from the World War II period. The man in the costume is not.
Wouldn’t it be excellent if there was a place where you can download images of a tech corporal uniform in a hi-res? Now, that’d be a great resource for any World War II game.
