Types of identification scarf (marker panel) — 2 Comments

  1. Hello. I have one of these panels. It was given to me by an uncle who explained that the narrower end was tied around the neck and the two corners held out to make a triangle to indicate direction. This was necessary when paratroops had fallen in the wrong place and needed to signal direction to others.

    • Hello Mark, thank you for sharing this information. I had no idea about this. Just how would this have worked? Would this signal be seen by other paratroops from the air? Or on the ground?
