unknown blue circular patch


Recommended Posts

Just over 1.5" in diameter. Infantry blue on twill. 1940s construction. Does not glow.


Was this a cap device where rank was fashioned on it? Was this a turning blue for infantry discs? Thanks in advance. What time period.

I seem to remember an old ASMIC "Trading Post" article about these. The blue is for infantry and they were sewn to the o/seas cap in the same manner as a parachute cap patch. Rank insignia was then pinned on top of the circular patch. They were VERY short-lived and were pre- to early WWII timeframe.

I think there are some pics from the '39 - '40 war games that shows these being used also. The pics are on the forum somewhere. I had a yellow colored disc at one time. Sold it at the last ASMIC convention in Portland.
