Story of the Red Rabbit Trading Co. WWII Military Dog Tag Chain
The Red Rabbit Trading Co. WWII Military Dog Tag Chain is based on those worn by the US military during the Second World War. It is 26″ in length with a 2.5″ extension and comes with two hooks that make it easy to add one, two or even more pendants to create an entirely personal piece. Made from solid steel.
First introduced in December 1906, dog tags are used to store important information about military personnel on the battlefield. During the Second World War, this included name, service number, blood type, person to notify, religion. US Army spec no. The chains these tags were attached to were often used by their wearers to attach personal charms and pendants.
Red Rabbit Trading Co. make one of a kind silver jewellery, charms and keepsakes that are designed to be cherished over a lifetime. Inspired by pre-1950s jewellery and the beauty of the South West US landscape, from their workshop in Albuquerque, New Mexico, they hand craft each piece using traditional, time-honoured jewellery making skills. The result is pieces with an antique feel that embrace the spirit of the work of early turn of the century silversmiths. At Those That Know we carry the most extensive selection of the brand’s pieces available in Europe, including exclusives and limited runs.
Sold individually; without charms or pendants. Charms and pendants from Red Rabbit Trading Co. are also available at Those That Know.
