Wow! Gives new meaning to the term "security blanket".

Always searching for items from 83rd Div (WWII), 3rd Div (Korea), and anything related to the Civil War in Arkansas or Missouri! Will buy or trade!

 

In memory of Pvt Roland L. Gates, Co G, 2nd Bn, 15th Inf, 3rd Division. KIA 15 June 1953 defending Outpost Harry.

That has got to be one of the coolest patch blankets I have ever seen. There are some GREAT patches there aside from the 101st as well! Stunning and a great addition. Congrats on the pickup!

Always looking for 325th G.I.R. and WWII USMC items!

Now get those scissors out.... JK

 

 

Yeah, I hate to admit it, but I would have those patches off the blanket within minutes. The blanket is post-WWII anyways.

Bob,

The original owner has past away. I bought it from the widow. She say's she only knows he collected for many years and about 10 to 15 years ago he started putting them on blankets, Yes I said BLANKETS. (*_*) as I get them, I'll share some photo's of them. I can only afford to make payments so I only get 1 at a time. Next one is a USMC theme.

as the are being paid off.Great piece! what's the background on its collection and assembly? Bobgee

Hello Ski,

I had to agree NOT to cut them up without 1st trying to sell each one complete for 6 months. I did tell her that the next owner will not have to agree to any terms. I hope they stay intact. I'll have a blanket collection if they don't sell because I won't be cutting them up. Pat

There is a patch I've never seen before, To the top left of the first "1" next to the army group patches, A red patch with a gold lion and a scroll with "try us". Anyone mind telling me what that is? Thanks , Mike

I have mine as the 141st FA also. Is the one on the blanket felt/wool construction?
