US WWII Insignia questions


Recommended Posts

I'm working on some 1/32 armor and motorcycle figures and have questions on the rank insignia.

What colors were the chevron rank patches? I've seen yellow on dark blue as well as silver. Was there a 'standard'?

Were the rank patches worn on both sleeves or just one? If one,  left or right?

Thanks, as always.

US Army enlisted troops in WWII wore their rank chevrons on both sleeves. They are supposed to be centered midway between the elbow and top of the sleeve. Unit patch was worn on the left shoulder.
