    Default Thoughts on USMC white diamond patch

    I have a set of 1942-43 Marine Service Dress with a white diamond patch on the right shoulder. If I understand correctly the white diamond signifies an honorable discharge before the adoption of the “ruptured ducK”. I think this patch is original but added much later due to the color of the thread. Anybody have any thoughts?

    You are correct, it was used pre-Ruptured Duck. Can't talk speak on when it was sewn on, though

    The link was to USMF!
    I saw your reply there Brig.
    I thought the stitching looks similar to example shown there.

    Thanks folks! So I was correct in that it’s pre’45ish. And I agree AZPhil stitching does look almost the same as the link you sent. Thanks again.
