Over the past few years I've encountered a handful of period photographs in which the Doughboys & Marines are wearing shoulder sleeve insignia that in respect to size, appear to be on the plus side of normal. In other words they are oversize ... bigger than the average run of the mill WW I era shoulder patch.
I'm hoping that you all will opine on whether you think they look (or don't look) larger than normal. Or better yet, post photos of your own showing other examples of WW I shoulder patches that you think are larger than the norm.
Thanks for looking ... World War I Nerd
Photo No 01: I'll start things with these two 2nd Division Marines sporting what look like jumbo size, 2nd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment shoulder patches.
