Two olive-drab felt patches with varying numbers of drab chevrons at bottom; one has two chevrons, and the other has three with a curved stripe at top of patch; both have in center a gold thread tank.
These chevrons were probably worn by members of an American armoured unit, on the upper sleeves of their uniform jackets. Two chevrons indicate a corporal, and three a sergeant.
