Japan War Crimes Trial (WCT) patch
« on: June 21, 2017, 12:16:49 am »
This one has also been misID'd for decades. It was worn in the Philippines for the Manila WCT, which lasted all of two months in 1946. There is evidence that it is a Philippine Army patch, worn by one of two units (or maybe both), and Americans involved in the Trials were granted approval to wear it.

It was NOT worn in Japan for any of the Trials there. BTW - there were WCT held in many different countries following the war - Russia, China, Singapore, Australia, Nuremberg - and all the Trials were known by their geographical locations.
