Here's something interesting found for sale on eBay, a patch for an Fire Patroller, presumably a person who was a wandering fire watcher at an R.J. Reynolds tobacco plant in North Carolina. No other information known. Don't even have a good historical context in this case, on fire watching at industrial plants and other facilities. Memo to self: learn about that some time.

Remember personal info?
