HEADQUARTERS ELEMENT GUIDONS   COLD WAR ERA
 

Headquarters company/battery/detachment (HHC, HHB, HHD) elements of groups were authorized guidons of the same colors and design as the corresponding organizational flag of the unit. Group guidons were made of heavyweight rayon banner cloth, but older examples made of wool or cotton could still be used if servicable. Dimensions were 20 inches at the hoist by 27 inches on the fly with a 10-inch fork. Numerals wereapplied to read properly on both sides of the guidon.
