The US 28th Infantry Division did. The Division, which in peacetime is the Pennsylvania National Guard, had been badly cut up during the fighting in the Huertgen Forest in the autumn of 1944. It had been sent to "rest" in what was thought to be the quiet sector of the Ardennes, where it was one of the units the initial German onslaught fell upon. The Division suffered heavy losses and was somewhat scattered but its scattered fragments remained in the line and fought for many days before being pulled back for reorganization.

What infantry was called bloody bucket in World War 2?

I believe that was the 28th "Keystone" Infantry Division because their Shoulder Sleeve Insignia is a bright red keystone that resembles a bucket. I read that term somewhere recently and I believe that is what it referred to. The Pennsylvania Army National Guard's 28th Infantry Division does wear a red "keystone" patch on their shoulder. The patch became known as the "bloody bucket" after WWII, during which the Division suffered massive casualties during the fighting to liberate Europe, particularly in the Ardennes forest and during the Battle of the Bulge, in and around the Belgian town of Bastogne. My dad was a sgt at the Battle of the Bulge and told me that the Germans tagged the 28th with the name BLOODY BUCKET because of the damages and deaths that the 28th caused the German soldiers. He said that as they rounded up the surviving German soldiers, the Germans would refer to the Keystone as a bloody bucket.

Why was the 28th inf division called the bloody bucket?

The 110th and 112th Regiments were almost definitely in the Mortain/Sourdeval region on August 12th. The Battle of Mortain lasted 7th-12th August, So it's likely to assume they were in the Region on the 11th August aswe Soldiers of the 28th ID liberated Sourdeval on the 13th August.
