Thank you. I had a tough time finding this. His other uniforms had various other patches including a ruptured duck.

The blue, gold , and red round patch is the Replacement and School Command patch. The Replacement and School Command was established in conjunction with the early WWII Army reorganization and was activated on March 27, 1942, with headquarters at Birmingham, Alabama.  Its mission was to supervise the operation of schools and replacement training centers.

All these shirts are from one man?  May we see these shirts in full?

Patches,

These were complete uniforms with pants/shirts and service coats in a shop in West Virginia.  Probably should have bought them but I am very new to this area of collecting.  Interestingly, these uniforms were also on the same rack.  Looks

like he may have been the real deal. Lots of the SF uniforms but all name patches had been removed

Around $20 per set on average.  Some cheaper, some a little more.  Cheapest was $5, most expensive was around $35.

I checked all the pockets.....nothing.  Was hoping for a name on the SF stuff.  The older khaki uniforms were stamped with the guys name and service number.  When I head back through next week, if its open I will get some better pictures
