U.S. WWII Garrison Cap Badge Patch- Paratrooper Infantry

Regular price $4.95

Item Description

New Made Item: High quality heavily embroidered U.S. WW2 Paratrooper badge as worn by the 101st and 82nd Airborne. Placed on the standard issues USGI wool overseas cap, worn on the right side by officers, and the left side by enlisted men. Patch features sky blue background with white parachute.

Unit patches actually had no prescribed regulation position when sewn to the upper sleeve, but usually they were placed 1/2"-1" under the shoulder seam. The wearer's current unit was sewn to the left sleeve, while any previous unit in which he saw combat might be placed on the right sleeve.

Patches for enlisted overseas caps were sewn to the front-left of the front fold, while officers were on the right. Often, it was popular for Airborne to place a silver dollar behind the cap patch; some even say it was used as a blackjack for bar fights.

Circular patch measures approximately 1 7/8 inches in diameter.
