US Divisional Patches - 4th. Armored Division.

The 4th Armored Division was activated on the 15th April 1941at Pine Camp, New York. It was late December 1943, when the 4th AD left the US for England, to prepare for the invasion of Europe. In July 1944, the division landed at Utah beach, and first saw combat the same month as part of Operation Cobra. The 4th AD also took part in the Battle of the Bulge, racing to Belgium to help allied troops to repel the counterattack. The Division finished the war in Czechoslavakia.

Following the end of the war, the 4th Armored Division spent time on occupation duties in Germany. The 4th Armored Division was finally inactivated in May 1971.

This is a fantastic reproduction of the Shoulder Sleeve Insignia worn by the unit. Embroidered onto a Triangle, the blue represents the Infantry, the Red for Artillery and the Yellow for Cavalry. There is a black tank track surrounding a cannon barrel, behind a red lightning flash. This design was a combination of the WW1 Tank Corps and the dated 1930's 13th Cavalry patch. 

At the top of the patch is the number '4' depicting the patch is for the 3nd Armored Division.

The Badge is 9 cm tall.

 Perfect for your 4th Armored Division collection!
