  1. Patch with the buffalo is Colorado University ROTC.
  2. I'm pretty sure this is Robert S. Johnson. Served with the 56th Fighter Group, 8th Air Force in WW2.
  3. Emblem of the Chinese-American Composite Wing, 14th Air Force. Shown in BATTLE COLORS volume VI by Robert Watkins.
  4. I believe the one on the left is a type 1 (per Bando).
  5. I think it's a variation of the 492nd Bomb Squadron, 7th Bomb Group "The Eager Beaver Bombing Co.". Similar example illustrated in "Battle Colors" volume VI by R. A. Watkins, page 69.
  6. The bomb dropping buzzard is from the 511th Fighter Squadron, 405th Fighter Group of the 9th Air Force in WW2.
  7. It looks like a modern copy of the emblem of the 361st Fighter Group insignia.
  8. Post #755, How the West Was Won.
  9. The Dept. of the Army Unit Citation and Campaign Participation Credit Register has the 303rd Ordinance Battalion receiving credit for occupation duty in Okinawa from September 1945 to January 1946. No theater campaign credit.
  10. I think the 87th was with the 12th AF in WW2.
  11. The advanced 4 engine training base at Liberal, Kansas used the fuselage marking ON as seen in the photo. They operated with the B-24.
  12. The thing about supposedly Italian made woven patches is that in two color examples the colors were reversed on the back side. Do any known German made ones show this quality?
  13. 440th air base unit,Santa Maria army air field, California.
  14. Insignia associated with the 1st Air Commando Group of the 10th Air Force operating in Burma in 1944 and 1945. This unit had a bomber section operating B-25s so likely it was their emblem.
  15. The "Coral Snake" patch was actually an unofficial design worn by some 2nd Division troops. It was never approved because only part of the Division saw action at Guadalcanal and the official design was already being produced.
  16. The 2042nd QM Truck Co. received credit for participation in the Rome-Arno campaign.
  17. British 51st (Highland) Infantry Division.
  18. I found a Samuel Hullum who was a gunner on A-20, 43-10161 of the 647th Bomb Sq, 410th Bomb Gr. on August 10th, 1944 piloted by Lt. Henry Robinson. This plane aborted a mission with engine trouble and while being homed in to an airfield in France the second engine failed. The crew bailed out over friendly territory and returned to duty, so there wouldn't be an MACR. Al
