wwii flying squadron patches

World War II Flying Unit Patches
This disc contains a large collection of insignia from flying units at squadron level of the US Army Air Forces, US Navy and US Marine Corps. Most are unfamiliar and unusual and forgotten since 1945,
except by those who were in the units. Included are 322 Air Force patches, 87 from the Navy and 8 Marine Corps insignia. For the combat units and Navy ships and air stations, great detail is available
about when the unit was formed and deactivated, the aircraft flown and operating locations. But, for non-combat, service and support units, there is no single source for such detail. This disc recalls

some of those. Below are some of the patches in the collection. Click on the appropriate button below to order the disc. Cost is $25 plus S&H and applicable sales tax.
