U.S. 1st Armoured Patch
A good original example of the U.S. 1st Armoured patch, Nick named The Old Iron Sides!
The 1st Armoured arrived in Northern Ireland on 16 May 1942, and trained on the moors until they moved on to England on 29 October 1942. The unit’s first contact with an enemy was as part of the Allied invasion of Northwest Africa, Operation Torch. They fought in Sicily through Italy and Germany.
