101st Airborne

Hiya all,

A friend of mine is having a 1940's themed 40th birthday party and I'm thinking of going as a member of the 101st airborne.
Therefore, does anyone know of any insignia that I can put on my A2? I've seen a unit patch but I want it to be correct.
BTW who made the A2's for Band of Brothers?

Thanks,
Ian

As always, you can't go wrong by looking to Maj. Dick Winters for inspiration. A nametag and a 506 PIR patch and you're set.



Here's the 506 PIR patch... there must be repros out there somewhere, given the enormous popularity of Band of Brothers.


P.S. I believe Real McCoy New Zealand made the BoB A-2s.

Hi Ian,

Here is a picture of my old ELC A-2 with the 506 PIR patch and my nametag. I wear this one for reenactment and daily wear.





Hope it will be of any help.
