  1. I didn't know that the Shelby ones were copies!
  2. Very nice collection.
  3. I have a pics of a blacked backed version on my computer somewhere. I’ll locate them and post. My understanding is that J&J Cash were the only manufacturer of cloth USMC insignia in Australia that used that process. But that’s only my knowledge. J&J Cash’s machinery produced a ‘Bevo’ style patch (they produced insignia in this style for the Australian Army from the mid 40’s to the late 80’s). All insignia was made on a continuous roll. Hence the two cut edges. Because they were hand cut there is some variation in the shape due to the angle the patch was cut.
  4. FYI, I can tell you unequivocally the some J&J Cash made USMC patches had Black cheese cloth on their rear.

I've just been reading Distinguished Flying Cross and Air Medal Criteria in the Army Air Forces in World War II Arranged by Theater and Command by Barry L. Spink, Archivist Air Force Historical Research Agency. Very interesting stuff. https://www.afhra.af.mil/Portals/16/documents/Timelines/World War II/WWIIDFCandAirMedalCriteriaCommand.pdf?ver=2016-08-30-150741-427
  11. The jacket is named and has a laundry number. However, I am having trouble IDing the owner with both the NARA AAD or https://wwii-enlistment.com/ The laundry number is G-8061. The name is ? H GEIER Has anyone got a take on what it might be?
  12. The right hand pocket had a PUC above it. The SSI was round, most likely an 8th Air Force. There were ribbons above the left hand pocket.
