Library Exhibit, May 2021 Badge Insignia

Many organizations – governmental, fraternal, and commercial – use patches sewn to uniforms, shirts, or hats to identify their membership. This month the JHS exhibit case in the foyer of the Jamestown Philomenian Library displays a variety of such badges from the collection.

Among the patches on display are U.S. Army insignia from units in which Jamestowners have served as well as Jamestown police, fire, and emergency services patches from across the years.

Visit the library to see the entire exhibit and please consider donating your Jamestown memorabilia to Jamestown Historical Society, contact info@jamestownhistoricalsociety.org.
