Description:

Many of the items in the grouping are connected to the 11th Airborne Division, the 511th Parachute Infantry Regiment, and the grouping as a whole is Airborne related. 7 sets of jump wings are included, two embroidered directly onto regimental flashes, and 5 metal; of the metal ones, one has an 11th AD logo on the risers, and another has both the logo and "II A/D" engraved on the front. 5 loose regimental flashes are included, and a 6th (white border, light blue field) has a mounted glider badge. Four shoulder patches, one glider, one parachute, an 11th AD patch, and a "JUMP MASTER" patch. Three additional Airborne patches and a large (8 inch diameter) jacket patch are included featuring the custom design of the 511 PIR ("HELLS ANGELS" text with an Eight Ball under an open canopy, behind which sits a wolf with a halo); the large patch has untranslated Japanese markings on the rear. Also included with an embroidered 3 3/4 inch wide patch for the 674 Airborne Field Artillery (a wing, a shell and an open canopy above an array of lightning, with text "HEAVEN/TO/HELL" and "674"). Provenance: The Putnam Green/Sycamore Collection

Rating Definition:

Very good to excellent overall. the larger patches show minor stains and wear, but retain solid detail in the embroidery.
