1107 ARASU Detachment 150 Military Intelligence Plaque
Here is a great item for the guy who understands the importance of this unit. We recently bought a collection and this belonged to the owner. He was sent to Europe right after the war and the unit was interrogating Nazis and gauging political climate and ramifications in post war Europe. This collection was really full of unique and interesting items rarely encountered, but this plaque was actually from his unit in the 1107th ARASU. I know two things about this unit. First, the 150 attachment was sent to Europe and the 101 detachment was sent to the Pacific on a parallel mission. Second, ARASU is a weird enough organization that even on line I couldn't find anything about it with regards to military intelligence. Interestingly enough, handwritten on the back is the word "classified". I am going to make the obvious assumption that 67 years after the war it is no longer classified if it ever really was. Whatever the story, this is a great plaque with an important story behind it. Please let me know if you have any idea what "ARASU" stands for.
