    Your patches are from the Panama Canal or Canal Zone. What is now called Southern Command.

    The MP Brassard looks to be wool with felt stiched on letters.
    Master Sergeant Stripes, definitely 1940's.
    The next three, Canal Zone Police and Customs, the Triangle is older while the nest two are newer versions.
    Overseas bars to indicate 1 bar = 6 months.
    Gulf Oil patch.
    Air Corps/ early Air Force Material Command? A guess, I knew it at one time.
    Railway patch.
    Last one , No clue.

    All appear to be from someone who served in Panama.

    Hello
    Thanks for the info. The miltary patches were a seperate purchase than the canal related ones. i have uniform and lots of other items from the AAF Material Command patch purchase. Do you think the MP armband is ww2, someone told me they believed it was.

    Thanks again

    What does the back of the brassard look like? Materials are definately consistent with WWII but the style is more post Korean War.

    Hi Robert,

    That certainly looks WWII to me. Just as an aside the patch that is on the brassard is for the Caribbean Defence Command that was headquartered at Quarry Heights in the Panama Canal Zone so everything ties together very nicely.

    Cheers
