Lieutenant Colonel William "Bill" Kilgores badge set for the Vietnam Tropics Jungle uniform.
In the famous Hollywood success movie Robert Duvall played the legendary character Lt. Colonel Bill Kilgore as commander of the 1st Battalion of the 9th Airborne Brigade. The helicopter attack on the beach accompanied by Wagner's Ritt der Wallküren is probably unforgettable and unique in film history. The helicopters, the music from the Doors, and surfing helped the movie to its success.
Lomax Militaria has forced to reproduce exactly this badge set. We were supported by our supplier from Thailand who flew to Vietnam to have the badges made "in country". Each badge is handmade and elaborately embroidered with the machine. As underlay for the embroideries an original US Army tent tarpaulin from that time was used.
The set consists of the following single badges after model from the film Apocalypse Now:
#1x US Army Strip
#1x Kilgore Name Strip
#1x 1st Cav Air Cavalry Arm Badge
#1x Ranger Writing Sheet
#1x Senior Pilot Badge
#1x South Vietnamese Springer Badge
#1x CIB combat infantry badge
#1x US Army Paratrooper Badge
#1x black clutch back Metal Badge for a Lt.
#1x black crossed sabre as metal badge for belonging to the cavalry
