Units of Patton's Third Army
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

At the Patton Museum is a banner with the patches of the subordinate units of Patton's Third Army. I'm trying to ID them all. I have figured out all but three and was looking for some help with them.

Hi Mark!

I think the one in the middle might be the 2nd Free French Armored Division.

Sgt, Scouts Out!
