Enlisted of course, my apologies. I always use the British term "other ranks".

 

So would this cap probably date to around 1944/45?

Correct but they used the same style into the 50s.

This isn't necessarily "late war." The 82nd was using this cap patch as early as 1943.

Never under-estimate the power of prayer.

Agree with Allan, the 82nd had these patches from N. Africa on so could be as early as 1943 but were very common and wide spread use by D-Day in 1944.


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