As all Marines know, we are fond of modifying most everything in sight including giving our uniform accessories that certain “personnel touch”. Here we have a fine example of the unmarked J.R. Gaunt emblem of post 1922 with an up-swept wing touch to the original flat wing. Must say his work did give them emblem additional character. Note the spinner; he even carved his initials. Sure wish I could mate them up at some time. Lots of examples exist, someday we need to start a post just to the topic. Brig.........? Gary..........?

Would this made in England WW2 era collar EGA be considered "theater made" or does it have to have been manufactured in an occupied country?

Nice emblem, Dennis! It actually predates WWII by a couple of decades. It's the Enlisted Model 1920 that was worn from 1920 until approximately 1930.

As for your question. Many collectors use the term "theater made" or "locally made" to describe any insignia that was made outside of the US, so yes, your emblem could certainly be described as "theater made." I usually use the term "theater made" to only describe insignia or patches that were hand made by street vendors or local artisans in countries other than the US, but even the large, professional emblem or insignia makers like JR Gaunt, London or KG Luke, Melbourne could be considered local makers.
