Douglas Fairbanks Jr.

Naval History magazine recently showcased a fascinating relic of the U.S. Navy in World War II—a relic with a celebrity vibe: the custom-made oaken case housing an array of medals from ten nations, all awarded to the classic Hollywood legend Douglas Fairbanks Jr. for his wartime service. He was one of those rare few stars who was more of a hero in real life than on the silver screen.

The case and medals, now in the collection of the U.S. Naval Institute, served as an interesting photographic subject—interesting in its many angles and in its diverse content. Alas, due to the limitations of dead-tree publishing, most of these images were not able to fit into the one-page featurette. Thank goodness for such a thing as a blog, i.e., an expandable universe! Here, then, are some more pictures of Fairbanks’ treasure trove of medals, plus a link to the original story.
