WWII USMC Corporal 2nd Division
Here is a service jacket with an early unofficial 2nd Marine Division snake patch which was later replaced with the more common Torch patch. Now there is a lot of interesting things about this coat, that it is such a late coat with a ruptured duck but a very early snake patch. Here is a Marine who really liked his old patch when he went home. An interesting coat none the less!
