2 new patches for the collection - USS Essex CVA-9


Recommended Posts


I was talking to a customer of mine last week about the Navy as her was wearing his ball cap. Being a carrier sailor myself we got into a conversation and I told him I collect and display artifacts. Turns out he had seen one of my public displays and he told me he might have something for me. Today he came in with the patches shown. They were removed from his old cruise jacket some years back because it was falling apart. His wife told him to save them as someone might want them someday. I am glad she did because they are wonderful. My guess is Italian made. He is writing up his service history for me and copying a photo of himself in uniform and I have a photo of the Essex from that time frame that I am adding with it to make a display. Just thought I would share it with you.
