Still picking up some to scan for my eventual book.

 

Armament by Fisher. A division of General Motors. This is an incredibly rare patch as the only other that I have seen in 15 years was listed as sold on flyingtigerantiques

Shell Gasoline Ground Crew Service wing patch that went on the left shoulder. The shell on the left breast pocket. 

 

Here is a neat video that shows the canvas type patches that we see all of the time on ebay.

Very excited to add this patch. No others on worthpoint. You can read about it on page 275 of Volume One Dressed for Duty. This is a rare womens patch from WW2. I have had the text of this patch as a saved search on ebay for about 7 years.

Have never seen another, and I have looked hard. I have had a few different JAHCO patches, but this is the first legit official US Tech Rep variation.

Allison Engine Company. I may have seen one other.

V-1710[edit]

GMH Allison Overhaul Assembly Plant in Brisbane during the Second World War

Allison V-1710-115

The very first V-1710 was purchased by the U.S. Navy as their GV-1710-2, and appears to have had an Allison serial of number 1, suggesting that they restarted numbering for the V-1710. The first V-1710 engine purchased by the USAAC was AAC 33-42, Allison Serial No. 2, the XV-1710-1, while Serial Nos. 3, 4, 5 were V-1710-4 engines for U.S. Navy airships, followed by a batch of 11 Air Corps engines purchased with FY-1934 funds (34-4 through 34-14) that covered Allison serials 6 through 16. After these the production race was on, totaling over 70,000 V-1710s.[2]

By this time the Army had become more interested in the design, and asked Allison to continue with a new "C" model. They had few funds of their own to invest, and Allison supported much of the development out of their own pocket. The V-1710-C first flew on 14 December 1936 in the Consolidated A-11A testbed. The V-1710-C6 completed the Army 150 hour Type Test on 23 April 1937, at 1,000 hp (750 kW), the first engine of any type to do so. By then all of the other Army engine projects had been cancelled or withdrawn, leaving the V-1710 as the only modern design available. It was soon found as the primary power plant of the new generation of United States Army Air Corps (USAAC) fighters, the P-38 Lightning, P-39 Airacobra and P-40 Warhawk.

The Army had been leaning heavily towards exhaust-driven turbochargers, instead of the more common mechanically driven superchargers, favoring the theoretical advantage of using the otherwise wasted energy in the exhaust. Thus, little effort was invested in equipping the V-1710 with a complex two-stage supercharger, and when placed in aircraft designs like the P-39 or P-40, which lacked the room for a turbocharger, the engine suffered tremendously at higher altitudes. It was for this reason in particular that the V-1710 was later removed from the P-51 Mustang and replaced with the Rolls-Royce Merlin.

unknown US Junior Cadet patch. Most likely a High School reading or something. Never seen another.

Some more from Army primary 303rd AAF FTD from Brayton Flying Service located in Cuero Texas. I picked up 5 of the large patch years ago. At that point, I had only seen about 8-9 of them and none of the smaller ones. 

 

A recent small hoard brought out about 3-4 of the large, 3-4 of the small cap patches, and 3-4 of the smaller triangular propeller patch. Along with cloth wings, medal large and small wings.

Still researching this one. I am not sure if this was a federal program, but a number of food companies used this slogan, "Food Fights for Freedom." I have never seen this patch before, but I found the same insignia online. 

 

Heinz, Salada Tea, and numerous other food companies used this slogan.
