Nice WWII United States Army Airborne Artillery jacket patch from training at Fort Benning in Georgia. The center of the patch shows an open parachute and strings and surrounding it reads: “UNITED STATES PARATROOPERS” in white embroidered detail.
Approximately 4” in diameter
Embroidered wool felt, cotton/polyester/silk thread, gauze backing
This is from a US Army collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VEX16 LADEX11/16
8- (Very Fine—Excellent): The jacket patch shows minor wear and soiling, overall excellent condition.
As with all my items, this piece is guaranteed original.
