    Patches need help!!!!!!

    Post by Guest on Mon Oct 04, 2010 8:31 pm

    well I dug these ones out of my tote full of patches and found that some of these are different. First I dont know why the 1st div patch has a black backround with a dark purple one? maybe sf? I just put a regular 1st div patch next to it to show the difference. All the others I dont know of I do remember what div the blue one is but it has a 49 sticted in the middle which is weird. The other two are not in my field of patches so I dont know. Sorry about my puppy he kept trying to bite the patches Very Happy

    1st Div is just a color cut edge that has had something spilled on it or has been dyed. The 88th Division looks like a WW2 one and the number is 349th for the 349th Infantry which is part of the division. The other 2 patches are souvenir patches from Hydra Island, Greece, and Cairo, Egypt. They are found with military groupings, but are not issue or authorised for wear.
