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.

Kanawha Flying School, West Virgina. I lived right across the WV State Capitol for a year so I am excited to have this patch in my collection!

It was a Sea Plane school on the Kanawha River. According to Mark Hess, the “Kanawha Seaplane Base... was called Charleston #2 Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol during WWII. Clark ran this operation. It was also a Civilian Pilot Training Program base.”

They produced 2750 B-17s during WWII.

Very excited to add this Disney patch to my collection. Seldom seen and only on twill. 

 

313th Victory Field AAF 

 

317th was at Victory but 313th was at Fort Stockton Field. Trying to research it more. So tough to find this one.

54,600+ views! Somehow there were 8,000 new views in the past 1.5 months! Humbled that this is the 2nd most popular thread on the Home Front area. 

 

We just moved so I will be posting lots of patches that I have not included in the past few years. Thanks for watching! Let me know if you have home front patches not listed here as I would be interested in purchasing them.
