China-Burma-India Theater Patch

Artifact Details

Burma was of strategic importance for both the Allied and Axis forces in WWII.

Personnel, including OSS officers, in the China-Burma-India Theater wore this patch on their left sleeves. The star on the left represents a traditional Chinese rendering of the sun. The star on the right is the “star of India.” The red, white, and blue colors of the US complement these symbols.
