A quick question......
Getting back into collecting again and want to be accurate.... Who doesn't? I am interested in the tank destroyer battallions and have got hold of a ww2 impressions tanker (can't afford the real thing) and an original TD patch..... Four wheel, red lightning, etc - very pleased!

Question : Would any other id patch go on a tanker jacket? I don't want to go too far (christmas tree) but want accuracy as far as poss! If I am portraying a 702 TDB, would that triangle go anywhere, if at all? I have searched every where and all I can find is the TD panther patch on left arm.

Ok.... Not that quick but....

Many thanks
Jim

Just TD patch Jim......nothing more nothing less.....and your rank stripes.....

whether you were in a M10 M18 or M36 an M20 or M8 or Jeep of the TD recon battalion you were TD troops

TD battalions were organic to an army group and attached to a division not part of a division

regards

Lloyd
