    I like early DCUs , and DCU blouses with prior service insignia.  This blouse is both early issue and has prior service insignia.

    Bought it  from a member of this forum recently, but am having difficulties identifying the SSI.

    Apparently SSG Vanstavoren was a Naval Flight Officer at some point (could have been a Naval Officer, or a Marine Officer ).

    The breast badge is  interesting ; it is an earlier version with black embroidery on tan as opposed to spice on tan.    


    Any comments  are welcome..

    Thanks for the info !!

    I was discussing the patch with a friend and we concluded that it had to be an engineer unit based on the castle theme. Thanks for identifying the unit..

    Love the blouse, definitely a good story behind that one..

    If it were a full color patch it would be red and white in color and those two colors are in all engineer unit patches. I think red and white are in all engineer unit patches but there are always exceptions it seems. Nice top, not to common to find dual service insignia. Thanks Clete
