    Trying to get some help to ID a patch ghost on US Jacket please.

    Post by Easy Gee on Sun Aug 28, 2011 1:10 pm

    Hi Guys.

    I'm wondering if someone can help me ID this patch ghost ( what patch would have been there.?)The name tape and branch tapes have also been removed.
    Many thanks in advance Wink


    This is on the left shoulder.




    It also has the remains of Stars and stripes, on the right shoulder too.




    Here is the label if it helps any !!

    Did the shirt have any qualification badges? That can add or subtract possibilities. Also, the size of patch (measurements)? Also, any tab shadows above it?

    Right off the top of my head....maybe Pyops/Civil Affairs, or 11 ARC, or 2nd Infantry Division.

    Looks like the shadow of two seperate patches.....

    Good Luck,

    Hiya Mate,

    No there are qualification badges I can make out, and your right, I should post the measurements, I will do this as it would help the ID.

    Thanks for your input..nice one Mate Wink

    It does look like 2nd ID with the peak at the top but it looks flat across the bottom. What's the size of it?

    Many thanks for all the comments and ideas so far Guys, the patch is seven sided,and following some research today, the only one I can find that fit's that shape so far is the 7th Medical Command.? Wink

    If it helps further , I will supply measurements and closer pics later on.

    Easy Gee,

    Do you enjoy trying to figure out these things, or are you collecting shirts with no patches?

    Wasn't there a seven sided 2nd ID? Kidding. You couldn't really tell in that first shot but can sure see it in the later shots.

    That's not so simple...because there're tons of patches.... Wink But I'll check in my book about insignia because I think the 7th med Cmd is a small insignia...

    I do enjoy the mystery puzzle solving aspect, and no I don't specifically collect patchless Jackets, if they are cheap I buy em', I would of course prefer complete BDU's!!
