47th Infantry Regiment Unit Crest - No Motto (Single Crest)
LIMITED ITEM. SURPLUS - USED. Once they are gone we may not get any more.
According to ACU Army : "Unit Crests are unique to each unit in the U.S. Army and are officially known as Distinctive Unit Insignia - although most Soldiers refer to them as "Unit Crests." The insignia design is derived from the coat of arms authorized for a unit. All personnel assigned to the organization wear the insignia, except general officers, the Sergeant Major of the Army and the Senior Enlisted Advisor to the Chairman. Enlisted personnel wear the unit crests on the green service uniform coat, centered on the shoulder loops equidistant from the outside shoulder seam to the outside edge of the button, with the base of the insignia toward the outside shoulder seam. Enlisted personnel are not authorized to wear the unit crest on the Class A uniform. Officers wear the unit crest centered on the shoulder loops, equidistant from the inside edge of their grade insignia to the outside edge of the button, with the base of the insignia toward the outside shoulder seam."

NOTE: Over the years we have collected items with historical interest. The majority of our memorabilia is war related and we do not wish to offend anyone. We do not support or condone war but believe that historical items can remind us of our history, teach us about specific moments in time and hopefully prevent us from reliving any manmade horrific times in history. Any items we offer are intended for collectors of memorabilia and hopefully will be used for educational purposes. All of our collectables come from our own private collection via many X-service personnel and government auctions and have included Nazi party, Holocaust, Allgemeine and Waffen SS, Luftwaffe, Kriegsmarine, Kamikaze, Japanese, Australian, U.S., British items, etc. We should not forget our past but should endeavor to learn from its mistakes. It is our hope we never forget those that have died as a result of war. May god protect them!
