This is a great replica of the “1st pattern” Ranger diamond issued exclusively to the 5th Ranger Battalion in 1943 while at Camp Forrest, Tn. These patches were phased out before the Battalion left for England, however, some surviving original photographs and clothing articles show use well into the Normandy campaign by “old-salts”. Correct tan “raw” edge.
This is a perfect replica of the Ranger diamond issued to the 2nd and 5th Ranger Battalions and worn throughout service in Europe from 1944-45. These patches are beautiful…the best replicas we’ve ever seen. Gorgeous indigo blue (not PURPLE-BLUE) field with sharp golden yellow type and border. Exact copy of the originals. Correct tan “raw” edge. This is possibly the LAST run of these we’ll be able to procure, so order now!
