Just got my grandpa's WWII Army uniform, scrapbook, and other momentos. Are these the pins you all are looking for?
He was in Japan during the Occupation Sept. '45--Oct. '46. These are not on his uniform. Is that where they were worn? They are both screw-backs.

Your "371 IR" is the 371st Infantry Bn, approved in 1950. The WW II 371st IR did not have a DI. This also exists embroidered like a small SSI.

If I could see the back, and/or read the HM, I could tell if your 317th Engr Bn is post WW II, and suspect that it is.

WWI 82d Infantry Division.


There were no "infantry" divsions in WW I - this was for the 82nd Div, as indicated on the insigne. It is also not a DI, but probably a divisional insigne for some identification purposes; perhaps worn on a fouragerre. It is exceptionally rare, nonetheless. Size would be helpful.

There were no DIs in WW I. The approval to wear DIs was dated 16 Sept 21 and they were all initially bronze, with no enameling. Colors were illustrated by the manufacturing process. There were some exquisite enameled insignia made and worn pre-WW I, but they were worn on the mess jacket or white uniform.

Well sir, I can only state what I have, and its' known provenance and etiology. I look to others more knowledgeable and experienced in this field for for guidance, not mockery nor derision. I assure you these things are important to my family. The object in question measures approximately 9/16th. The U.S. Infantry veteran unquestionably wore it home, back to hilly old North Georgia. He kept it as his most proud item, eschewing even his medals in favor of the the hidden suffering of the "All American " Boys of the 82d .

It is a cloisenette, light blue for infantry, with the famiar'AA" meaning All American Division. with gold 82d Division emblazeed about the top.
He returned home in June 1919 with it so it can be assumeded to "Theatre Made"

After All, what really matter id how e wwwwwwwwwwwwww

Here is the crest for the 844th Engineer Battalion. This unit is part of the US Army Reserves, and when I was a member of this unit was also a part of the 125th ARCOM.

I had the opportunity to purchase a large amount of items from Eveready Embroidery / Denmark including a few thousand DUI's when they went out of business last year most have been identified. If I can be of any assistance here as DUI's are one of my top collectibles please let me know. Regards, Keith
