ARTIFACT: This is an extremely rare circa World War II jacket patch for the United States Navy VC-7. The design of this patch, which is a fantastic skull spitting forth a ship and a pair of dice, was approved in January 1945. Initially an Escort Carrier Scouting Squadron established in February 1943, VC-7 was first known as VGS-31. One month later it was redesignated as VC-31 (Composite Squadron 31), and then as VC-7 in September of the same year. The squadron was disestablished in October of 1945. This patch has been removed from a jacket.
