I pretty sure this is a Military Sea Transportation Service insignia but what is it for?  I assuming it is worn on a garrison/overseas cap or maybe on the collar or lapel?  The backside has a pinback fastener and is marked GEMSCO.  Any help would be appreciated.

 

Best,

John

Yes on MSTS. I have the larger insignia for the hat, but I've never seen this smaller size.

Maj Z,

 

Thanks for the reply.  I have also seen the larger visor cap device/badge, that's what lead me to believe this smaller version may be for a garrison/overseas cap.  It is amazing the lack of information that is available out there on this organization (MSTS) uniform insignia .
