WW1 80th division jacket

Recommended Posts

Very nice. Would have been issued when the Division returned from France.

I'd guess it was issued "over there." Patch looks theater-made, not US.

I’d say you may be right on the patch’s origins, yes......and probably part of his kit and other items that returned home with him to the US....once here it was sewn on this cotton uniform which was issued and worn while he mustered out of the Army....It is possible that the soldier could have removed it from the wool uniform he wore while steaming home and later applied it to this summer-weight coat, along with the overseas stripes and one of the three red discharge chevrons each soldier was issued.
