101st Armored Cavalry Regiment


Recommended Posts

Nostalgia - Interesting to see the old "Dickey Bird" as we called it. I was a fraudulent enlistment, age 16, in the 101st Armored Cavalry Regt. (Squadron 'A') in New York City in 1954. I THINK we wore this patch on the left front pocket of our utility shirt with an un-numbered Armored Force patch above the U.S.Army strip and the First Army patch on the left shoulder, all in color of course.

 

No idea if the patch shown was worn as a SSI in WWII.

"I have only two men out of my company and 20 out of some other company. We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold." (Message sent by 1st Lt. Clifton B. Cates. USMC, 96th Co., Soissons, 19 July 1918 - later 19th Commandant of the Marine Corps 1948-1952)

Thought this might be of interest to you and the rest of the forum. Pretty sure only first worn during Occupation period. Have some basic variations of various borders and different shaped "Dickie" birds.In one recent post some one commented how rare theater made of the 101st cav are so I thought that I would show some from my collection. Hope you enjoy. Mort attachment=249337:101st_cav_2.jpg
