My theory--Japanese made 1948-1951+ WWII style chevrons


Recommended Posts

I have some others but now that I can compare them to what has previously been posted I see that they all appear to be US woven (unfortunately the ancient computer I use at the museum does not play well with this website). Next time I shall look more closely for ones that appear out of the ordinary. It is good to see that most of the chevrons are WWII. When people donate stuff to museums you never know what you're getting!

Hey Grant--

 

I agree that those are both U.S. made WWII era chevrons, not only due to the style, but also because both the 3 stripes Sgt and the Technician ranks were abolished in 1948.

 

I think I have seen a few soldiers wearing 3 stripes Sgt chevrons after 1948, though.

 

Thanks for posting.

The weave of the chevrons in post #1 looks very similar to the US Army tape in this post:

Are the stripes raised or is the entire patch the same thickness?

Looking for older Virginia Military Institute items: insignia, uniforms, cadet sabers, documents, and groupings belonging to VMI alumni.

Also interested in Virginia Reserve Militia (VRM) uniforms and insignia, or other items of general Virginia interest.
