So it finally came in. This turned out to be an interesting grouping. Not only did I get the patches, but got a set of ribbon bars as well. So I am told these were found in a storage unit and these were salvaged / SAVED from a scrap book. The patches were stuck to paper and the paper id crumbling in my fingers. So the patches;
Is this his history and associated units? 2nd Army, 11th Corps , Un-numbered Armored patch (it's a green back by the way) and then the 275th Armored Artillery patch. I can see it's cheese cloth backed.
The Sgt's stripes have been trimmed on the bottom, so it could have been a T-5(?)
As for the ribbon bar, Was he a re-tread? I can't believe, but totally possible, they added the wrong ribbons; a WW1 Victory medal for a WW2 Victory and a WW1 Occupation for a WW2 Occupation ?!?
I'm waiting on some documents that am told will be in the mail soon. It will show some names but I don't know if it will pin point the vet.
