WWI US 1st Infantry Division Theater Made Patch
Item #: WR256
This is a theater made US 1st Division patch from World War I. The patch measures 2 7/16" wide and 3 5/8" high. The red numeral 1 stand for the Big Red One, one of the nicknames for the division. The red felt number one is sewn onto a green wool backing to form the patch. The green wool backing is in the shape of a five point shield. There is a small amount of moth damage to the red number 1. It does not appear that this 1st Division patch was ever sewn on a tunic. The 1st Division patch is probably the most recognizable Army patch, made famous by the movie The Big Red One starring Lee Marvin! The 1st Division was organized on 8 June, 1917 and has been on active duty ever since. The overall condition of this WWI 1st Division patch is very good.
