Hello I am an avid WW2 USAAF/USN/USMC flying unit emblem researcher and maker of leather emblems of the same, I have some 30 years into both and enjoy this hobby emensely !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The emblems are a wide ranging field of types, missions and in form , from cartoonish to very graphic and risques types, I highly enjoy tracking down the images and their beginnings and variations in both colors/details , and even more so making new/old patches for the veterans who wore them !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Many were "Unofficial" that meaning they were made and worn , but not sent through "official" channels to be approved for use by the unit , this makes for at times a very long and exhaustive search in finding both their colors and ID's, I have a small photo album now with about 60 or so "Unknowns" and or "Colors needed" types that I'm working on.

I've had some success with many via computer searches , books etc ,but never tire of the "hunt" , please check out photo examples of just a few of the thousands of leather patches I've made at the link here,


Thanks for looking and if you have a need for ID help on US aviation patches please feel free to send me scans and I'll do my best to ID for you !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
