Tank Destroyer SSI and Insignia


Jim Baker

Recommended Posts

It's always fun to discover interesting things about our "stuff". I bought this TD manual that belonged to J.B. Gregg. Turns out he later co-authored a history of the 804th TD Bn. Not a big deal, just fun.

A cool photo. Check out his insignia. I've seen these used as the "centers" of early lapel brass, but not worn by themselves. Until now.

I bought it along with a TD patch from a lady whose father was in the Tank destroyers. Always loved TD stuff , my uncle was in the 705th

Thanks for the reply.

Very nice patch too (small ear type).

Good save. Sad to think of what has been thrown away over the years.

Currently don't have a picture to post but my father and I probably have the neatest Tank Destroyer Battalion piece. We own a Dodge WC-55 M6 gun motor carriage which saw use with the 601st and 701st TD Battalions. These trucks are rather rare and photo's of them are almost classified as unicorns. If any of you gentlemen with photographs of TD Battalions have any pictures of a dodge please let me see.

It's been a while since I've posted anything. I'm excited to have picked this up at a great price. I guess no one was watching!!

Thanks. I think these were sewn to the pennants. It's in great shape with no mothing. I'm thinking this one will go in a frame.

Thanks guys. It arrived today and it is perfect. Took a lint roller to it and not a single defect. I really lucked out on this one.

Here are my TD patches. I'm not sure about the square one. I picked it up cheap, less than $5. The main material seem to be a GI blanket.Looks to be, 811th TD BATTALION
