I know the entire 504th jumped into Holland with M42 reinforced jumpsuit instead of the M43 suit used by the other regiments at this time.
The "only" 507th set that I'm aware of with Normandy Provenance was not
reinforced (thus that part of the question).
I've never seen a reinforced set patched for the 17th. (Though I'd love to own one).
