Cloth W.A.A.C patch for wear on the sleeve of Women's tunics.
The tab measures 56mm wide and 21mm high. The text is green on a yellow woven background.
In WW2 when the Women's Amy Corps was first formed in 1942 it was a not a full member of the US Army but an auxiliary unit so it was called the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps (WAAC).
As a legal requirement at the time the WAC's were not classed as enlisted into the army and because of this they where classed as an Auxiliary unit until they where integrated into an active status in the US Army on the 1st of July 1943 when they became the WAC's.
As a auxiliary unit the WAAC's were required to wear the WAAC tab sewn directly below the cloth rank stripes on the arms of the shirts and tunics.
The WAAC's used the standard US Army sleeve stripes as the enlisted man but the rank designation was different so for instance the men's P.F.C. (single stripe) in the WAAC's it was an Auxiliary 1st Class, the mens Corporal (two stripes) in the WAAC's was a Junior Leader and a Sergeant (3 stripes) was a Leader.
The price is for a pair (2) WAAC tabs, one for each arm.
