4th Ranger Ike


Recommended Posts

Posted Image

I was out hunting on Monday and seen this jacket at one of my local spots

I took a pic and sent it to my mate but didn’t hear from him so I left it and moved on

Later he called me and told me to go back

Was 2 late in the day so I went back the next day and to my surprise it was still there

I nabbed it

Inside the breast pocket was a rank and a FFA pin

 

Jacket was not named unfortunately and all pin on removed probably at the rag mill and thrown into the usual bin of assorted military patches and bits and bobs

Never have seen that pin on method, great Ike!

I have one where the guy used straight pins on his overseas bars (but the shoulder patch is sewn).

Great pick up, and thanks for sharing. That's the first time I've ever seen patches applied with pins like that. I love it that you can collect for years and still see non standard methods or uses, which can surprise you.

Looking for anything related to Army Ranger Battalions from World War II

It was the grey backing that set it apart old chap.

They were made on uniform wool.... ;)
