thanks for that. it made it both more clear and more confusing all at the same time. lol
that was my thought as well. Ive seen the patch but it does not look like the corsairs themselves had specific squadron markings. I also read that according to Pappy himself they didnt have specific planes as their own. They often ended up flying whatever was air worthy at the time.From below , " They chose for their badge to carry into battle the black shield of illegitimacy, the bend sinister, a black sheep superimposed above a circle of twelve stars, and crowned with the image of their aircraft, the F4U-1 Corsair. "
But , It doesn't look like it was ever part of the aircraft livery :
