Re: Significance of "Ruptured Duck" WW II
Your Definations of ruptured duck are all wet. The reason for its issue was this- After we were discharged we were allowed to wear our uniforms for about two weeks During that time we were no longer the juristiction of the military. In other words if we got drunk and disordely the M.P's would see the ruptured duckand knew we no longer belonged to them. Of course the civilian police knew we did belong to them.
