He was a South African serving as an American officer or this is a device that he picked up while over there?

Wikipedia says that "The Border Regiment" is a "line infantry" regiment of the British Army formed in 1881.  I'm drawing this correlation because, although the cap badge has a Maltese cross in it, the colors have the Greek cross as is on the buckle.

Hi all

I have had this with the airborne tab and put it as XVIIIth Airborne Corp,however I think this could be for XVIIIth Infantry Corp.

Also the mid 50's 101st Airborne Division , training , note I added the tab and possibly should not have one.

Any Ideas on both should they be with or with out tabs.

Also post real odd ball twill patches here from any era.

Phill,
My father-in-law, and I have the documentation to back it up, was a member of Headquarters 506th Infantry, 101st Division in the mid '50s.  His uniform has a screaming eagle patch with no airborne tab.  He said he was in the "airborne infantry" but was not jump qualified.  According to the literature I have read, the 506th lost its airborne designation in the mid '50s when they were a training regiment.  I don't know about the rest of the division, my reference only mentions the 506th as being a training regiment.

Regards,

Wiley Winter

Fella's, this thread has kicked up another question between my young son and me.  We were watching a movie, From Here to Eternity, I think, and the 1st SGT wore E-7 stripes with a diamond like the stripes pictured above.  Our questions are:  Were they a pay grade E-7?  If so, when did the first sergeant position go to E-8?
Thanks,

As a "Cyber-Ranger" and author of many web pages, programs and a few TP articles, I not only applaud the webmaster's hard work but I cheer!  Yes, there are a few broken links in the TP section, and you can grumble about it if you want, but the number of incidents are so few that it would hardly register on the "broken link" scale!
The webmaster has brought us screaming into the 21st Century.  Those not "in the business" probably don't realize what a monstrous undertaking this has been and I, again, cheer this accomplishment.

Hi, all,
Just wanted to share a shadow box I have just completed of my great-uncle's medals.
