Can anyone identify these arrows on shield lapel insignias. They are metal insignias with screw backs. These are on a Airborne enlisted mans Ike jacket. The Ike jacket is from a WWII vet estate.
Any and all help will be appreciated.
thanks
mike

In additions to Dave's id, they are German Occupation-made. Is there a First Division patch on the left shoulder? (The 26th Infantry Regiment was part of the 1st Infantry Division.)
