Small white & green chevrons

Recommended Posts

Picked these up with a group of early WW2 USMC tan chevrons. Are these USGI? Measure about 2 3/4 inches wide.

 

I suspect they are for female marines???

Female Marine for the seersucker uniform.


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.

Garth, were these implemented in 1952? My understanding is that female Marines wore the same chevrons as men during the war. Thanks.

Not real sure about chevron size in WW2 but WMs did have the green seersucker uniform during the war.

From the Blitzkrieg Baby site, it looks like the summer dress and seersucker uniforms sport green on white chevrons similar to mine. Not entirely clear in the photographs though.

For what it is worth I have never seen larger green on white WM chevrons.

Garth, maybe you should move this topic to the USMC section of Ranks and Rates seeing these are definitely not US Army chevrons?

The smaller size ratings shown above are, as Garth stated, but I'm not so sure they were worn on the seersucker dress as these were normally green on white. They were possibly worn on the khaki shirt. Yes, they were worn during WWII. Jack

Jack, these chevrons are green sewn onto a white background. Although the white is faded/yellowed somewhat, it is white. Pix is not the best, but in hand it's very obvious.

Good idea I'll move it.
