Post by: Phill Lockett on December 24, 2015, 12:41:50 pm
Hi All

Whilst rummaging around the internet searching for information. I have come across the odd picture of patches that you don't normally see.

Post the real odd pics from the past.

The following are from 1925  Army Recruiting journal.

Not to sure on this one he is USMC but the patch looks round for 23rd Inf as opposed to the oval shaped 6th USMC MG Bn.
