Took a chance on this one recently because I thought the design looked cool. I don’t have a lot of experience with leather patches, so I’m not entirely sure if this one is even real, but I think it looks good. It’s decal on leather and depicts a devil dropping a bomb on a pyramid (maybe MTO?) with a sight picture overlayed. I looked all over the place for an ID on this one but have had no luck so far. Any help is appreciated!

It’s still unknown. There is a thread on this insignia already. Most likely a training patch.

Thanks! It definitely seems like it’s a training patch.

I've had a couple of images of this patch for some time now and have yet to get it nailed down, I'm leaning towards a Bombardment Training unit type, the little pyramid looking object he's looking at was known to bombarddiers as "the shack" and wa s a pyramid shaped bombing target usually made of wood slats .........

Thank you. That’s seems to be the most plausible answer. It’s a shame there was no paperwork identifying the patch in that one grouping it showed up in.
