    WWI Sterling Captain's Bars. F.B.L.M. Camp Grant Rockford, Illinois

    Howdy Folks. I just dug these old silver Captain's Bars out to compare with another T-net member who I believe found a set as well. Anyhow, I was wondering what the engraved F.B.L.M. might stand for? They were recovered at a WWI military base in Rockford, Illinois-Camp Grant. Thanks for any suggestions. Kurios1

    Isaiah 9:6-7

    For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

    Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

    definitely WW1 "coffin style" bars. I can only assume that the engraving is the owners initials. He was probably very proud of them
