There were a bunch of these patches that came in the Patch King patch albums in the 1940's. Outside of there, I haven't seen them being worn. There has always been differing opinions as to whether they were a signals or QM patch, or whether the material was just dyed incorrectly or the shade was simply not to the specified red for artillery or engineers.

 

As a collector, it is an interesting variation, and would go nicely with other type patches, but I can't say that it represents a specific branch or unit.

I remember I had one of those in a patch king album, it says red. And look at the oval underneath it also says red, I guess patch king just filled in blanks with whatever they had available. To call that red is way off. But there are a lot of this type I notice around.Posted ImagePosted Image
