Blade Runner Mysteries: The Boys in Brown: Patch Identified

You might recognize these background extras:


They have weird hats, brown uniforms and a couple of patches. Here are some more pics:

The best references I have are for their red & black patch, which I at first assumed to be a cobra. The filenames here still reflect that:

But once I realized it might be an army unit patch, I was able to nail it: it is the emblem of the 27th Infantry Brigade, rotated 90 degrees:

27th Inf BrigadeWhat I thought was a cobra is in fact an overlapping N-Y monogram, for New York. Oddly, unlike the Eagle Guys’ patches, this seems to have an extra border added to it.

I had no such luck with the other chest patch, which seems to be a black shield with three eagles on it.
