This patch came with several WW1 Division Patches. It's very nicely chain stitched. Each side is just under four inches. I'm thinking it's a YMCA patch but I can't find anything comparable. Any help appreciated.

It's got to be YMCA. All the colors are typical of theirs with horizon blue and red. For those that made it overseas, almost all uniform equipment they had was provided once they got over there. All kinds of variations. 4" is big for their uniforms but it could be a shoulder patch or just a souvenir.

YMCA insignia at the National World War I Museum.

 

The designs are arguably similar to the posted photo.

It might be Hi-Y related. Hi-Y and Tri-Y were YMCA programs for High School students dating back to 1927. Here is a nice website with much of their insignia pictured  http://www.vintageki...om/hiy/hiy.html
