I'm sure that if you look through Normandy photos you'll see a range of flags .

 

Here is one that came from a 17th AB vet who cut the flag from an arm band and painted the edges green.

Thanks! Do you know if the armband is correct for the Normandy invasion? Im a patch guy and this is my first time assembling a uniform. I have a lot to learn!


Sew on flags would be correct but mainly only for the 82nd

As it isn't present anymore it could always be considered as being a replacement jacket. It doesn't necessarily have to be the 101st. But I catch your drift.

Nice jacket can't wait to see the finnished product!


Im also very keen to find out about the previous energy from laundry number. Does anyone have the 101st roster they could reference?

Beautiful flags! I obviously down want to sew on a flag. As stated, Ill check out some photos and match a setup as close as possible.

 

63 Recon, Im also excited about the laundry number but Im not holding my breath. Its possible that the jacket was stripped and given to someone outside the 101st. 

I had a member tell me George W. Dallas (38533361) was in the 321st GFAB but another individual told me he wasnt at Normandy. So far he is the only match to a 101st soldier.

So there are no matches for a surname starting with an H for your jacket?

As of yet, no. The only hits with H's are the 57 results over on the enlistment records site.

  I have been in this hobby for many years, but it still does my heart good to see fellow collectors find an item they get excited over.  Thanks for sharing and can't wait to see your display.
