I am curious if anyone has a real life example of the first patch shown below. The first picture depicts a Marine from Air Warning Squadron 1 (AWS-1) in what is believed to be February 1946. You'll notice he is wearing a 4th MAW shoulder patch however the patch is not full red but rather two tone. I believe the color scheme to be similar to that of the second photo which shows a handmade MGCIS-1 patch from a few years later. The two-toned patch was supposed to signify that the radar squadron could conduct both day & night operations. The color scheme is still employed by MACS-1 and VMA-513 to this day.
Does anyone on the forum happen to have an example of this patch? Thanks in advance.
