US Army 101st Airborne Division "Pathfinder" Division Patch



A scarce WWII 101st Division Screaming Eagles Pathfinder "white tongue" patch. A green back example with a separate tab (not a greenback)

The first paratroopers to be dropped on Normandy are the pathfinders. These men are grouped into teams each consisting of a lieutenant element leader, four transmission operators and four paratroopers responsible for overall security during operations. They are dropped into enemy territory without initial marking, simply based on terrain observation and navigation calculations aboard the C-47 Dakota.

The Pathfinders are then tasked with drop zones (DZ) and landing zones (LZ) before the arrival of the airborne fighting companies while implementing the “Eureka” transceivers of which they are equipped. The latter send pulses picked up by the “Rebecca” transceivers installed under the fuselage of the C-47s, which allows the pilots to orient themselves. It is also possible to use these two means of transmission to send short Morse messages, both for pilots and for scouts.
