SOLD US WW2 Tank Destroyer Forces Patch . USP1245

United States Tank Destroyer Forces Shoulder Sleeve Insignia (Patch). The patch is fully embroidered with a snowy back. Most likely 1940s (WW2) era. Worn condition. The patch does not react to UV light (does not glow under blacklight).


Additional Notes: The U.S. Army raised a large number of tank destroyer units during WW2. For most of the war U.S. Army doctrine called for tank destroyers to primarily operate as concentrated tank destroyer battalions during combat. These battalions were to be concentrated in regiment-sized groups and brigades when needed to combat large forces of enemy tanks. However, combat experience in North Africa and Europe demonstrated that units larger than battalions were not needed. Tank destroyers were usually parceled out to other units and were rarely concentrated in battalions.
