I've decided to make patches of the 796th ROB insignia.

I am very aware that Battalion-level units
almost never had their own shoulder patches
either during WW2 or at any point.

But so many people have asked if I'll make them.


This is the digital scan of my insignia.





The patches will be 3" high.

I'm not going to make a huge batch of them,
but I'll be selling a few at the national Narrow Gauge Convention in Tacoma,
when people come see my layout for layout tours.

They'll probably be around $10 each.

Once I have them in hand next month,
I'll make them available here for anyone who might want a patch,
for what HAS to be the only Army railway unit insignia ever designed in the hobby.
