Rare and original WW2 Souvenir pillow cover embroidered in Italy in 1944 for the 36th Engineer Combat Regiment.

The 36th Engineer Brigade was originally constituted on 1 October 1933[4] as the 36th Engineer Regiment and activated on 1 June 1941 at Plattsburgh Barracks, New York.[2] During World War II the 36th Engineer Regiment consisted of nine combat engineer companies trained for amphibious assaultand support operations. Because of this training, the unit’s distinctive insignia was designed with a seahorse on a red and white shield.[2]

The brigade was deployed to the North African Campaign in 1942, participating in Operation Torch, where it conducted its first amphibious assault, and earning the brigade its first campaign streamer for the battle around Algeria and French Morocco.[2] It would continue supporting Allied units as they pushed Axis forces out of North Africa during the Tunisia Campaign.[4]

The brigade would then participate in the Battle of Sicily, conducting its second amphibious landing along with the 7th Army. It would push on with the rest of the force, eventually forcing German and Italian forces off of the island. The Brigade followed in the quick invasion of mainland Italy soon after, with an amphibious assault in the Naples-Foggia area, followed closely by another landing in support of Operation Shingle, near Anzio. For fifty days, during Operation Shingle, soldiers of the brigade held 7 miles (11 km) of the front line and earned the distinction by the German army as “The Little Seahorse Division”.[2]

The unit subsequently participated in the invasion of southern France in 1944, code named Operation Dragoon, conducting its fifth and final amphibious assault of the war.[2][5] It would support Allied units through three additional campaigns up until the end of the war; the Rhineland Campaign, the Ardennes-Alsace Campaign, and the Central Europe Campaign.[4]
