Description
 
"Old Ironsides" (1940-1946); Mediterranean theatre.

The borders of the Armored Division patches are the correct color for WWII- sage green. (Late War and Post-War were dark green. They were never "khaki".)

Unit patches actually had no prescribed regulation position when sewn to the upper sleeve, but usually they were placed 1/2"-1" under the shoulder seam. The wearer's current unit was sewn to the left sleeve, while any previous unit might be placed on the right sleeve.

In the early to mid-war period, independent tank battalions used the plain "Armored Force" patch, then started to use the numbered ones by around 1944. Armored division personnel mostly wore their appropriate divisional patch.
