I found this photograph at a flea market a few weeks ago.

Note the interesting patch wear. Not all shoulder sleeve insignias were worn on the sleeve. The man on the left is Clarence Ruff of the 805th Tank Destroyer Battalion. Unfortunately the man on the right is unidentified.

Enjoy,
Brent

Nice photo! I have a album from an 3rd armor guy and there are a few shots with the sleeve insignia on the pocket. Something you don't see all that often.
