    Default A couple U.S. jackets

    I went out Friday morning and found a few items at a few garage sales . The USMC jacket and the WAVE jacket are a husband wife set. The German Navy ID book was a nice surprise. Does anybody know what the white diamond patch is for?

    Steve the book is a great ref. for german ships. I don't think it was used much because its still in great shape. Gary

    I believe that the white diamond is an early insignia for discharged US Marine personnel before the " ruptured duck " was used at the end of the war. I might be wrong but I think that is what it is. It is hard to find on Marine tunics because of its short time of use.

    I forgot to mention that the other patch is a ships detachment patch. That is a harder to find one also. You have a real nice tunic there.
