Product Information

A DISPUTED PATCH

Can You Help ID It?

WWII Patch, Unknown unit


Info from Brian:
This patch has been ID'd, seemingly correctly, as being from 2 different squadrons in World War Two.
External documentation for both exists and is shown below.
Both external designs are the same and fairly close to the specific patch in question, but they are not a 100% match for the design.
If anyone can explain the chronology, transition, differences, or other any info on this design, please let me know.

Info from visitors:

#1. This was originally sent in as an unknown but suspected USMC patch.

#2. This patch is from the 58th Pursuit Squadron. Now called the 58th Fighter Squadron "Gorillas". The rooster logo was designed by Walt Disney and matchbooks were manufactured in 1942 by Maryland Match Company for the National Match Co. This is one of 20 military matchcovers in the Walt Disney design (and signed) Matchcover Yellow Set (as it is known in the hobby). Each match cover shows a Walt Disney cartoon character in these two WWII (1942) matchcover sets.

#3. It has the same design and colors as the 67th Fighter Sqdn, of the 58th Fighter Group - Johnny Signor
See Wikipedia - 67th Fighter Squadron.
 
Thanks to both visitors for submitting info!

Please help identify the unit this patch is from if you can.
If you know the Squadron, Group, Air Wing, or Air Force, or if USN or USMC, or any other information, please contact me so that I can post it and pass the information along to the friends & families of the original member of the unit whose patch has been passed down to them with little or no identification.
**When contacting me re: an unknown patch shown here, please be sure to list both the title and the unique "Product Code" (found towards the bottom of each listing). This will ensure I know which exact patch your are helping ID.

*** If you also have a patch that you would like to have ID'd, please follow this link for the procedure to get it listed here. Squadron Patch ID SERVICE

Please check the other UNKNOWN PATCHES on my website as well.

Re: Sales of these unknown patches.  If the quantity is listed as "0 - SOLD OUT", then it is a patch that has been submitted by someone else, and it is not for sale.  Patches that indicate they are for sale, are mine, and are indeed for sale and available for immediate purchase through the normal shopping cart checkout procedure.
