Help With WW2 USMC Patch - Puzzled!


Recommended Posts

Just a thought this may be a Military Order Of The Devil Dog insignia.The MOOD is an offshoot of the Marine Corp League.Their Logo is a heavy jowled Bull Dog.Just google Devil Dog organization and see the resemblance.Scotty PS almost every WW@ and Korean War Vet I knew belonged to one or the other or both.

EJINPA;

Your patch is for Marine Air Warning Squadron 11. See the article in the July-September ASMIC Trading Post submitted by Mike Bigalke for the history of the unit and the patch. Briefly: the "Lucky 11 patch designed by Capt. John L. Carnegie and 1st Sgt Ted Kleinfelter. The patches were made in the San Diego, CA area. Around 400 patches were made, and at least one patch was given to each man in the Summer of 1944 at Camp Miramar. The unit saw action at Okinawa. Nice and rare patch.
