    Hi Hal, all good stuff. I found the patch is interesting. Does this have something to do with the aircraft makers, Martin?

    Cheers, Ade.

    Yes Hal, as Ade says, all good medals with the correct brooches, and an EM cap insignia - I think it is WWI.
    And I too would think the patch is Martin Aircraft, but I have never seen one
    in any of my searches for aircraft related memorabilia.....

    It could be a rare patch !
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Hi Ade, the patch is from a veteran who said he worked for Martin Aircraft Co. before entering service in WWII.

    Hal,
    Nice medals, the enlisted cap insignia is post WW1 early 20's period. The Martin patch is unique, don't see much of the mfg material around. Good hunting.

    The Martin patch is the type many of the plant workers would have gotten while working there in WW-2 , a PX patch usually are what they're called , this emblem was in the front entrance inlaid in the ground of the plant .
