Product Description
Shoulder sleeve insignia for the 1st Marine Division. The patch was designed in Lieutenant Colonel Merrill Twining (the divisional operations officer) while the unit was refitting in Australia.

These did not appear until early 1943 and were worn only on shirts, field jackets and forest green service uniforms (wools). They were rarely if ever worn on P41 or 42 "Utilities" during WWII.
