101st Airborne "Ugly Bird" Patch - On Flip's Jacket

101st Airborne “Ugly Bird” Patch – On Flip’s Jacket

This is a rather unusual and seldom seen 101st Airborne Paratrooper SSI (Shoulder Sleeve Insignia) that is attached to the dress jacket and on the front pocket of the M42 Jump Jacket I got from 1st Lt. “Flip” Levick.  (If you have not seen it, please see my write up linked on the top of my home page for “Flip’s” story).  The patch is attached on the front pocket of his “going to town” or “party” jacket.  Most collectors agree this patch was made in the U.S.A. before the Troops headed to England.  Officers got two and some enlisted men got the leftovers.
