    Default US Airborne Patch?

    Hello all,
    I am helping a friend research a collection of WW2 artifacts and guns and we came across this nice US Airborne patch grouped with a St. George of England Medal, an Expeditionary Forces Service Medal, and two badges for England's East Lancashire Regiment and South Lancashire Regiment (Prince of Wales Volunteers). I thought all of it was WW2-era, but when I looked up the Expeditionary Forces Service Medal, I saw that it was not created until 1961. I am wondering if anyone can tell me more about this patch and its value. Any help would be much appreciated.

    2 merrowed edge patches, 1 airborne rocker and 1 Infantry School, late 60s that definitely are not WW II. with a bunch of irrelevant insignia pinned to them.

    As per Steve

    Subdued Airborne qualified tab , Infantry School Ft Benning Georgia.

    The black bar is Lt and the tab , Patch are mounted on an officers green leader loop that goes over the shoulder.

    Subdued merrowed edge patches started coming out late 60's , so this patch could be any time from late 60's -mid 80's.

    The crossed rifles stand for 4th Infantry Regt.
