  1. I'm not a expert on DI's but I have at my Dropbox ( link to main page - see my signature ) a short reference in a PDF

    Take a look at page 163 there are two versions for the 327th Sig Bn.

     

    Here is the direkt link to the DI's PDF

  2. it is not faded, a family member contacted me about it. Here is the thread.> the last part is the 1st contact.

    Hi,

    Could you post this with the patch.

    That would be odd as that was part of his effects when they were shipped home. He had been killed in Austria in 1946 along with another soldier who was decapitated in the jeep they were in. As the letters (proficient writer to his mother every three days ) constantly tell about arresting SS and Hitler Youth hiding out and the black-marketing. Letters give a lot of info on the "post war" front.

    Here are the photos.
    At least I know the white felt is original. being in the duffle bag all the years after it was sent home I am surprised there are just a few moth nips. I have wondered if it was the intention of being made white after the units transformation to the 4th Constabulary which as I mentioned before I have the 4th Cavalry/Constabulary unit paper from "Parade Day" he had sent home from that day.

    It must be theater made and the maker did not have any yellow. If it was not used that would be my guess, for if he had it made and never used it because he knew the color would not fly with the commanders.

    Hello TC,
    I honestly do not know, I have never seen one. My best guess would be it was a sample piece that was not approved.

    Hi,

    I may have contacted you before. My uncle was in this unit. Have lots of letters with the crest and the unit news paper (parade day) when they changed to the 4th Constabulary. In his duffle bag I found his patch but it is on white felt (never faded as the red and blue are still crisp in color) any ideas why white felt?

    Thank You
    TC

  3. Keeping back images of patches is the same as a fingerprint, You will never see two that are identical. I can't speak for newer computer made patches but the older patches are all unique. I post the backs on all sales to keep from the ole Switch A Roo that has been tried.

    Grant I hope you get your items back or that the thief buys a steak with the ill gotten $$ and chokes on it.
