Just picked this up at the recent Huntsville, Al show. I had always thought the between war CMTC program was for the Army only but it appears there might have been a naval branch. Add one more to the catalog of unusual rating badges.

The three best things in life are a good landing, a good orgasm, and a good bowel movement.

A night carrier landing is one of the few opportunities to experience all three at the same time.

 

You can not pronounce as knowledge anything you can not demonstrate.

What is CMTC? The Navy tended to stay close to basic uniform items, even with training programs. This is not really like any Navy rating badge.

Civilian Military Training Camps, I didn't say it was a US Navy rate. It is more like a Sea Cadet thing.

I am bringing this one back up from the dead, I cannot find any info on the Navy being involved in the CMTC, to make it even more difficult here is a Navy themed CMTC patch with Wavettes,

now there is a Navy and a female connection.  (everything I can find on the CMTC is male only) Any help with information would be appreciated.

From what I have read Citizens' Military Training Camps (CMTC) were held summer during the years 1921 to 1940. 

 

The Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service (WAVES) were not established until 1942, so the name may only be a coincidence, or it is a different CMTC.
