    Okay....this is the only Brazilian piece in my entire collection. I'm pretty sure it is for a soldier who was Airborne qualified. Can someone help me figure out the badging?

    Hi arch,

    Beautiful shirt.
    Olive drab was the standard issued uniform from 60's to early 80's - note these are all the older cloth patches and they've being replaced since late 80's, they became quite rare this days.

    Here is what i can ID -

    Left pocket - Round patch is a free fall school
    Name tag - PENHA

    Black patches on the right -
    Wing with sword is infantry school
    Wing with parachute is airborne school

    The color patch bellow is a Jump master patch - says "follow me" - "siga me"

    The rank patch is for a corporal.

    Great shirt, you need to increase your brazilian collection i can definitely help you out with some combat uniforms if you're interested just PM me...

    cheers and hope it helped

    It helped a lot more than you know. This shirt was actually the first militaria item that my wife ever bought me. It came from a small militaria shop in Las Vegas, Nevada of all places!!!!

    Hi Arch,

    Pretty cool shirt, patches are worth way more than the shirt itself, they are still quite common... I guess some soldier left their pants in some blackjack table in vegas hahahaah

    Glad i was able to help!

    cheers

    Dear nkomo,

    I'm a Captain in the Brazilian Army serving in our Airborne Brigade.

    Your shirt is the old Olive Drab pattern used up to 1993, when all Army units switched over to the so called "Lizard Pattern", even though it's not called that way here in Brazil. Now to the patches.

    The sleeve rank insignia is that for an Infantry Third Sergeant (a grenade over two crossed rifles is our Infantry symbol and three stripes indicate the rank of Third Sergeant)

    Over the right breast pocket is the name tag and in the pocket proper is the Basic Free Fall Patch.

    Immediately over the left breast pocket we have Basic Jump Wings and over it is a badge indicating that he did a course in the Specialized Instruction School, that gives courses in various fields of military knowledge that are not directly combat related. In the pocket he has the Jump Master Badge.

    Hope to have helped!!

    Best regards,

    Gustavo.

    Airborne!
