VMF-322 | Fighting Gamecocks patch


Recommended Posts

Just picked this up, VMF-322 | Fighting Gamecocks flight jacket removed patch.  From what I have read on the forum, this is the type 3 fully embroidered on wool American made, Disney designed patch. 


I'm guessing this is late war 44-45?  Does anyone have any information on this particular patch?  Being a vulture used by a Disney artist, I wonder if this vulture is represented by the 1937 Disney Snow White film?  


The Ground Echelon of VMF 322 was on an LST hit by a Kamikaze while unloading killing over 150 Marines on 3 April 1945.  Even with this horrific loss, the unit was operational by 9 April, to join in the battle of Okinawa.
