Republic of Vietnam 9th Airborne Battalion Guidon

Dated: 1960-70s

Description: Silk and cotton, triangular guidon. The 9th Airborne Battalion was formed in 1965, and participated in all subsequent major engagements through 1975. The guidon above is unique as it features a combination of the two different variations of the 9th Battalion's insignia. This guidon/flag is believed to have been used by the 92nd Company, since the base "bluish" color was the color used in insignia to denote the battalion's 92nd Company. This piece has strong provenance, and is truly one of a kind.
