Did the Marines ever use as sleeve insignia black felt stripes on a red felt background? I just won a chevron auction, and one of the lot is just like that. Also it measures 3.5 inches wide.

Could it be dark green? A photo would help.

The stripes look black to me.  I will try to post some pix of it tonight.

I'm away from my camera for the moment, but here's a picture of the chevron auction that I won that has the chevron in question in it.  It's in the second row almost at the left.

Picture is fuzzy. May be pre-WW2 CCC.

CCC(+) or Civil Air Patrol(-) if green in color. Could be a school type if not. Some of the others look to be ROTC school types.

Thanks for the replies. There does not seem to be any green at all so I am guessing ROTC.

Thanks again.
