U.S. Army 551st PIB Boots Patch  

WW2 Occupation US Army 551st Parachute Infantry Battalion (PIB) "Boots" Patch. Size approx 4 inches across. This version of the patch is quite collectible, however, it was not initially made for the unit. One possible beleived source of this version of the patch is an  illustrated advertisement from the Fall 1946 issue of "Boots", which was a quarterly magazine for veterans of the airborne that was published for a few years immediately after the war. The advertisement announced that "Boots" had commissioned the manufacturer of the patches of a number of airborne units.
