Nice patch. Is it for sale? My Grandfather was in the squadron during 1943.
Thank you for visiting the site. The patches you see here are from my collection and regrettably (given your grandfather’s service) are not for sale.
I salute his service and if you have photos of him or his aircraft you wish to share don’t hesitate to let me know – I could post them for you and share that story.
I have a few patches I’ve been collecting but only one is original. But not to my Grandfather. He brought nothing back because he took the mail plane home instead shipping back with it. I’ll send replica patch pics soon.
Please post a photo of your patch in the 7th Bomb Group on FB
Pics for your enjoyment:
The first one is my original patch. The rest I just found and downloaded.

Thank you for the links but which, unfortunately, did not work (I just get an “error” message).
The links I sent should work but I noticed that the links in the post didn’t paste correctly and now have a space in it. If you copy/ paste the whole link into a browser and remove the space it will work.
