Does anybody have a good photo showing back in the day when the 2d Cavalry patch was worn on the front fatigue pocket, and the 7th Army patch was worn on the left shoulder?

The 2d Cavalry museum needs it.

This patch Dave..?


No Bob, it was the regular Toujours Pret patch, but instead of wearing it on the left shoulder, they wore it on the left pocket.

Numbers 3, 4, 6, and 9 are all pocket patches worn between 1945 and 1967.

This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
