WW2 USAAF 90th BOMB GROUP [JOLLY ROGER] 320th BOMBARDMENT [MOBY DICK] SQUADRON PATCH

A fine scarce 1942 - 44 English made WW2 US patch. A large 6 inches dia, some glue residue to reverse.

Colonel Arthur H. Rogers, Commander of the 90th Bombardment Group, also known as “THE JOLLY ROGERS” (named after him), which turned out by recorded facts to be "the Best Heavy Bombardment Group" during WW2.

Late in 1942, this B-24 was modified at Hickham Field, Hawaii, adding a Consair A-6 twin 50 caliber tail turret to the nose, the first bomber with this addition, making it one of the key B-24's of the war. The “Special” project was conceived by Col. A. H. Rogers himself.

The squadron moved to Willow Run Airport, Michigan for conversion training on newly manufactured Ford Liberators. Assigned to VII Bomber Command with B-24Ds, the unit moved to Hickam Field, Hawaii in September. The squadron arrived in northern Queensland, Australia in November 1942 and began bombardment missions under V Bomber Command almost immediately.

The squadron attacked enemy airfields, troop concentrations, ground installations and shipping in New Guinea, the Bismarck Archipelago, Palau and the southern Philippines. The 3209th was awarded a Distinguished Unit Citation for its operations in Papua through January 1943. The unit participated in the Battle of Bismarck Sea in March 1943, and earned another citation for strikes on enemy airfields at Wewak, New Guinea in September 1943 despite heavy flak and fighter opposition.

During 1944, the 320th supported the New Guinea Campaign through the end of June, then made long-range raids on oil refineries at Balikpapan, Borneo, in September and October. In January 1945, the squadron moved to the Philippines and supported ground forces on Luzon, attacked industrial targets on Formosa, and bombed railways, airfields, and harbor facilities on the Asiatic mainland. Shortly before the end of the war in the Pacific, the 90th moved to Okinawa, from which it would be able to strike the Japanese home islands

WW2 USA 5th ARMY FORMATION PATCH

A fine 5th Army woven formation patch.

The United States Fifth Army was one of the principal formations of the U.S. Army in the Mediterranean during World War II, and was the first American field army ever to be activated outside of the United States. It was officially activated on 5 January 1943 at Oujda, French Morocco and made responsible for the defence of Algeria and Morocco. It was also given the responsibility for planning the American part of the invasion of mainland Italy, and therefore was not involved in the Allied invasion of Sicily (codenamed Operation Husky), where it was instead assigned the role of training combat troops destined for Sicily.
