M48 Chevron set Army. Referred to as the Mammie Eisenhower stripes these 2 inch wide were issued in 2 patterns. Blue on Yellow for Non-combatant. Also Yellow on Blue for soldiers in a combatant role. Often overlooked in collections these only lasted about 3 or 4 official years. They were issued without the Buck sergeant rank that was removed from service.
Very unpopular with the troops and most covered them up in 1952/3 with the Green on Blue twill pattern. Very interesting piece of rank insignia collecting mostly overlooked by even the major collectors. Oh My how even collectors dislike them as well.. LOL
