I have to say I was inspired to post these after seeing Dirk's 1st MAW uniform with a killer embroidered dragon in the lining. I've managed to pick up a few WWII USMC uniforms with Theater made patches over the past few years, and will post the ones I have. Out of the 3, two are from Ist MAW, the later being patched to FMF-PAC Supply with the Marine serving with 7th Field Depot.

All theater made patches, displayed together

His patch is all silk.

Our final Marine served stateside for most of his time in the served, but performed occupation duty with 1st MAW HQ Squadron as a Commissary steward (mess hall)

His USMC service shirt is patched with a silk 1st MAW patch which has seen the laundry.
