The second is a bit larger meas. approx. 3.00 inches across and is made of contrasting dark and light blue cording forming the Yin-Yang. Both patches are in excellent condition.

The next item is a printed metal lapel button with a stickpin on the reverse. The face has a full color blue & gray Yin-Yang at center edges in green with “WELCOME HOME 29th DIVISION” in white.

The last item is a World War Two son in service pin. The face has an enameled blue & gray Yin-Yang surrounded by a silver “29TH DIVISION U.S.A.” Reverse of this has a pin and is marked “WHITTEMORE & CO. ATTLEBORO, MASS” AND “STERLING.” Suspended from this by a very dainty chain about 1.25 inches long is a unit crest for the 111th Field Artillery Regiment. Crest has a small pin on the back as well.
