I acquired all of these from the same person.All appear to be WW2 era.

If I remember correctly,I may have already posted the golden parachute

one before,trying to get an idea on it,because of the unusual color.

Any additional info regarding these patches will be much appreciated!

Variation of PT boat patch. Really nice.

Early Amphibious Forces patch, worn on the right cuff of blues. This one has had the excess blue wool trimmed off. Again, very nice.

 

The gold parachute I think may have been for wear on the Marine Dress Blues.

Great patches! USN stuff is kind of neglected IMHO, but offers a rich variety for the collector at still affordable prices...just check out the nicely badged jumpers listed elsewhere on the forum today! I pick up rates and speciality marks whenever I can. I have a similar "Mosquito Boat" patch to yours actually on a jumper.

 

Cheers!

Thanks Steve and Ian,I'm blown away by the level of detail on the Navy stuff,you know,now that you mention it Steve,that PT boat

patch does look a bit different from the other one I have.I'll have to dig the other out and compare them.Ian,thanks for the heads

up on the jumpers.I was looking at some the other day,and thought they were amazing,especially that Beach battalion one!Yes,these

type patches still can be had for reasonable prices,especially considering the quality of the embroidery.Have you posted your jumper?

If not,I hope that you do!
