ORIGINAL WWII 36th ENGINEER COMBAT REGIMENT PATCH
You are bidding on an original WWII Engineer Combat Regiment patch. The 36th was assigned to the Atlantic Amphibious Corps, and landed in Frenceh Morrocco in 1942, minus one battalion, which landed in Algiers. The 36th then proceeded to Sicily, participating in that invasion, and eventually the invasion of Italy. The regiment was credited for five amphibious assaults and ten campaigns, including Anzio, Southern France, and Germany. Amongst other things, the 36th fought as infantry, built bridges, managed ports, cleared beaches, and supervised the movement of supplies. The patch worn by the 36th was an unofficial design authorized only for local wear, and was worn on the pocket.
I am in the process of thinning out a collection that I have accumulated over the past 25 years. Another really nice piece that was part of a collection obtained from a WWII WAC (fondly known around as the "Connie Collection") who had spent her time overseas trading patches with the troops, and then continued collecting when she returned to the states. To date, all the patches that came from her have been authentic. Patch is a fully embroidered with a wave pattern weave, and is cut-edge with kaiki trim and a lot of "white snow" on the back. T are two stains on the back from being glued in a binder. Patch does not glow under black/UV light. See photos.
