Continued:

-474th Infantry Regiment (Blue and Red Versions)
-503rd Parachute Infantry Regiment
-Army Air Force Far East (Light Blue on Felt Variant)
-IX Army Air Force Engineers (British Made)
-Red Ball Express
-507th Parachute Infantry Regiment - Have been told this variation of the pocket patch was produced much later, likely as a reunion patch
-377th Parachute Field Artillery Battalion - Found out this is a Paki made patch, but keeping it around cause it has a nice look to it.

Great haul Eric. That "Redball Express" is a killer! A nice British-made "stubby wing" 8th AF too!

You got some great looking patches there. I think the IX Aviation Engineers is German made, a nice variation to be sure

Thanks! I'm quite pleased, as I'm sure you can imagine.

My initial reaction on IX Engineers patch was that it is German made, but then I thought I saw on another source that it was British made, which wouldn't make much sense in terms of construction.
