Steve [sb4(at)msn.com] wrote that his father-in-law, James W. Belcher, who was assigned to B Company, 341st Infantry Regiment of the 86th Infantry Division collected and traded for patches while in Europe during the war and they were later used to create this great quilt. Some of these are railroad units .. if you recognize any get in touch with Steve.
