  1. The 505th MP Bn is exceptional. Great find.
  2. I forgot about the Tea trick which I first heard about at an ASMIC show in Frankfurt, Germany once upon a time, long ago. I always assumed they would load up their vacuum cleaner bags and gave the house a good cleaning.🤣
  3. Perhaps this is a Patch King item, page 18 in the first catalog, see the link below. The second link is for an a series of posts here on the Forum about this very subject. Enjoy! https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipNkW1kCwKQRnaiZD4ez4qAiJ4JH-YXpLdiSWhdBmwJ4rybmzgBBGN1tpnRbVGFZTA/photo/AF1QipML0RkX28zuM3bVchYmoo4Yxl3trW8w9BTPLRoy?key=b2JycWZwVVBpSEJGcFdEMnV4RnFKOUI1aTk1NHBR
  4. This is for an MP One Stop Unit Training (OSUT) {basic and AIT combined into 16 fun filled weeks} for the 4th Platoon, Foxtrot Company, 11th Military Police Battalion, Fort McClellan, AL. I was in 2nd PLT, Delta Company, 11th MP BN and ours looked the same circa 1984.
  5. I am not an expert on bullion by any stretch of the imagination not am I trying to wind anyone up however, looking at these two tabs, the wire in both tabs appear to be ever so slightly different. The wire used in the INDIA COMMAND appears to be a bit thicker and more tightly wrapped leaving not much space between the wraps whereas the PARACHUTE wire has a bit more space between the wraps and does not appear to be as thick. I might be talking out of my fourth point contact but, just a slight detail I believe I am seeing. No, I do not have a PARACHUTE Tab and yes, I need one for my collectio
  6. This SSI is still being worn today by the French Army.
  7. That is an amazing collection, congratulations.
  8. agate hunter, Allan is spot on with his answer regarding the Jungle Expert patch and the new Tab. If you are looking for the regulation on the Wear and Appearance of Army Uniforms and Insignia, search the net for Army Regulation 670-1 (AR 670-1). The last edition that was published on 25 May 2017 but that covers mostly grooming standards and how to wear religious items of clothing. The Army decided to publish Department of the Army Pamphlet 670–1 (PAM 670-1), Guide to the Wear and Appearance of Army Uniforms and Insignia also dated 25 May 2017 which covers how to set up the unif
  9. This was supposed to be 4 pages but I see that it is not so, let me sort this out and add the other 3.
  10. The Regulation that covers WEAR AND APPEARANCE OF ARMY UNIFORMS AND INSIGNIA was once upon a time Army Regulation 670-1 but recently it was changed to Army Pamphlet 670–1 - Guide to the Wear and Appearance of Army Uniforms and Insignia in 25 MAY 2017. I have provided several backdated versions to include the most current policy on arm flags. I hope this helps you in your quest. On second thought, I wore an American Flag on my MP Brassard (left side) while in Honduras in 1987.
  11. Tony, In James Sawicki's Antiaircraft Artillery Battalions of the US Army, Volume 1, page 290, this is identified as the 142nd Antiaircraft Artillery Battalion (Automatic Weapons) (Self Propelled) assigned to the 42nd Infantry Division from OCT 1952 - MAR 1959. This is the best I could do as I also have this tab and wanted to know. Most likely worn on a pocket flap but I am guessing. Kind Regards, Jim
  12. The 3" flag I wore in Haiti for Operation Restore Democracy in 1994. The 3.25" flag I wore on my return trip to Haiti for Uphold Democracy four months after returning to Bragg after the first deployment there. The 2.50" flag was worn by US Forces in Italy in the 80s when I was there. All of the other NATO nations wore their countries flag so we could tell each other apart in Joint Exercises was the rational back then. I am not sure why we changed from the left shoulder to the right shoulder with our flag in the span of 4 months but it was a Yes Sir, Yes Sir, three bags full Sir experience.
