Tank Destroyer SSI and Insignia


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.

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 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.
