Camp Arrowhead 1942 - Cherokee Fifty 1st Patch?
Old timers explained that this was given to them if they were a member of Cherokee Fifty Lodge on Staff. The Arrow facing upward to the right was correct for the time. So the debate would be "is this the first lodge issued patch" from Cherokee. If it is it would be the second oldest OA issue in the State of Alabama. Only Achunanchi 135's "Blue Owl" issued in 1940 would be older. Whether an OA issue or not, this is one rare patch.
