Junior Commandos. There were a bunch of groups within the US that used this term but these patches on canvas can be attributed to at least a local group or chapter of a larger one to Pittsburgh, PA. 

 

It appears that Red was for Officers and Blue for enlisted ranks.

Here is a new Pratt & Whitney factory patch. This came from the daughter of the worker during WWII. 

 

There are two variations of this one. Large (back of overalls) and medium. Pictured is the medium one.
