Unknown unit patch: USN Bombing Squadron 104

Does anyone recognize this emblem?

 

I came across this on eBay today but there was information on it other then the squadron designation and that

it was WWII.

 

In my experience, if this had been a USAAF outfit it have been designated as 104thBombSqdn. The way the

squadron designation apperas on this patch strikes me as being more RAF/RAAF, et al.

 

Does this design ring any bells for anyone?

Ive seen some similar patches that were sold as navy patrol bombing squadrons.

 

Edit: Found this

Thanks for the link. This sure seems to narrow down the possibilties.

What was throwing me off though was the USN generally designated its squadron with a combination of letters and numerals e.g. VA, VF, VB, etc.

This is the first time I've seen this type of usage on a WWII era Navy patch, but then again this a bit out of my specific area of research.

 

Thank again for the help.
