Unknown Patch Red Crossed Arrows on Blue. Military ? U.S. ?


Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever seen this patch ? Is it military and a U.S. piece ? It looks to be an older made patch. The arrows are embroidered on wool.

It is not British. It is a 2nd Infantry Regiment patch from the Interwar period. After being assigned to the 19th Infantry Division, the 2nd Infantry Regiment, Regular Army, provided cadres NCOs and privates to form the 35th and 36th Regiments.


Here is an example of the patch on a uniform sold by AGM in 2008:

That patch is being worn incorrectly on the uniform. It is the first Distinctive Unit Insignia approved for the 2nd Infantry in the 1920's. It was to be worn low on the arm near the cuff, not on the shoulder. I think it was added to that coat to "improve" it since that insignia did not exist in WW1.

ATB is correct. This is the first design of the 2nd Infantry Regiment DUI that was approved on 20 February 1920. That design was replaced by the 2nd's current design on 19 June 1936.

Wrong again, could have sworn it was British. Should have done my homework.
