Tank Destroyer Officer - Uniform 1

Recommended Posts

Puctured below is one of the two Army Tank Destroyer officer's uniforms in my collection. Both have major's rank but I do not believe both are from the same man.

 

The one pictured below is rather plain vanilla with a tank destroyer patch on the left sleeve, Tank Destroyer BOS pins on the lapels and one pin-back EAME ribbon with one silver star device on it and two overseas bars. Both Half-Tracks face the same way and I have been told the TD insignia were not "handed" that the way they were issued was with both facing the same way. My other TD officer uniform has the same kind of insignia.

 

I do have one unmounted set of officer's TD insignia somewhere that were privately purchased from a jeweler and they are "handed" but I was told that was not the norm.
