18th Airborne Division Operation Fortitude Phantom


Recommended Posts

Looks good to me, not sure that’s the correct sized tab though.

The tab is too narrow for this patch. Also, most 18th Abn Div patches are illustrated with a black and gold  tab. The only WW 2 abn div w/ authorized blue and white tab is the 82nd, but your tab appears to be too narrow for the 82nd,.

 

This narrower tab might be paired with any number of  post airborne units that did not have separate (or unauthorized) patches during the war. Examples are the 2nd Abn Bde (usually blk and gold), the 511th AIR,  100th Abn Div,  whatever the abn bde was for the 8th ID, and perhaps other patches which had airborne-Q personnel attached to them.

blue tabs

Is the patch itself original?
