    Default 101 / 501 Heavy tank battalion insignia

    Although the origin of this unit was the 13th heavy tank company in the LAH it eventually evolved into the 101st (late 1943) and then into the 501st (late 1944) and became independent of the LAH. My question is would the soldiers in this unit wear 101 and subsequently 501 insignia on their shoulder boards reflecting the independent unit structure, or would they have contined to wear the LAH cyphers, from where the unit originated from?

    If anyone knows any help would be appreciated.
