More embroidered USAAF insignia.
« on: July 25, 2015, 11:16:30 AM »
Further to my other thread, here are a few examples of USAAF officers' insignia embroidered on OD poplin (M-41 field jacket material) and khaki cotton.  The choice of OD poplin is an usual one as BOS insignia was not widely worn on field jackets. As for the khaki cotton type, that was eminently practical as khaki shirts would need frequent laundering, so embroidered insignia was preferable to regular metal insignia which would have to be removed every time, for obvious reasons!

I've included a few khaki-backed wing badges too.
