The 1948 pattern 2 inch wide chevrons came in blue on gold for combat troops and in the reverse colors for all others. The army reverted to the familiar 3.5 inch size chevrons but in only one color scheme (olive drab on blue) in 1951. However the 2 inch chevrons continued to be worn on army combat uniforms throughout the conflict.
