I have seen some invasion arm bands posted recently and thought I would post these. Both belonging to a group from a Greek 3rd Contingent OSS soldier.
He had participated in a number of 3rd Contingent missions during the war . In Greece they destroyed rail lines and bridges. As well ambushed German Trains and troops . There were also missions into the surrounding islands. To my knowledge these missions were all amphibious insertions, however he was jump qualified.
The first armband shown is the type could be wrapped around the arm and fastened with a pin. This example was trimmed and sewn down to a jacket... It has seen some use. Second is the type most often seen on A-2 jackets and made in Italy. It appears to have not been worn. These items may have been posted by me before as part of the larger group, but cannot recall.
