Due to the value of these type patches, many are fake or repro's.

Below are pictured the following left to right;

Below are shown PX patches. The light blue ones were worn by Parachute Infantry and Glider-born troops, while red was worn by Parachute or Glider Artillery and Engineers.

Below are shown 2 different types of Invasion flags.
 
The top one is a cut down arm brassard that was worn by an  HQ 82nd Airborne glider rider in Holland.
 
The bottom one is the much rarer cheesecloth version that the same man wore on D-day June 6th, 1944. He landed very near St.Mere Eglise in the first glider serial.
