  7. Thank you so very much for the identification. I thought it was a fighter squadron but you never know. Sounds like these guys had it really rough. Thanks Again. Ben The 356th Fighter Group flew 413 missions between 15 October 1943 and 7 May 1945 and suffered the highest ratio of losses to enemy aircraft claims of any Eighth Air Force Group. This gave the Group the reputation of being the 'hard luck' outfit. The Group was awarded a Distinguished Unit Citation for its support of the airborne invasion of Holland in mid September 1944.

  12. I have this same patch. It is a USAF patch and is from the mid 1950's and is associated with pilot training. Unfortunately my patch and its id are at me other home.

  14. I will try to remember when I get back to my other home to make a scan of my 147th FIS patch. I try not to WAGFO to often myself. If you get caught there might be little hell to pay. Ben
  15. This character is from a local Pittsburgh disc jockeys show. The character was known I believe as the Ovacron. He was quite famous in the area at the time the design was chosen . I have the disc jockeys name and the name of his show in my records but they are at my other home. I was told this by a pilot that flew with the 147th FIS when I was trying to locate one for my collection. I ask him the origin of the patch as I could not tell what it was either. I finally found one but it was a long hard search. It is a patch that does not appear very often and mine is different from yours as mine
  16. Was wondering if this was a military or a fraternal lodge photo? Thank you for your help. Ben
  17. Picked this up at a local estate sale. The son of the original owner stated his mother was a WW2 nurse. I thought this was a nice piece so brought it home with me. I know this is not a patch but thought this might be the place to post it. If not please move it to the best place. Ben
