Richard - I'm curious. When exactly did this registration and the issuing of metal ID tags take place - and - if you were in school, what school did you attend? It is something I had never heard of.

When my father was sent overseas in May of 1942, we moved back to the City to the Richmond district. I started the 6th grade at Lafayette School in September and there were no ID tags worn by any of the kids at that time. If it took place early in '42, I guess the plan was dropped shortly thereafter along with the wearing of the ID tags.

Our phone number was SKyline 0057.
