Description

This unit was activated in 1924, a Fort Worden, part of the coastal defenses of Puget Sound, Washington State. In 1941 this unit used seacoast searchlights and mobile anti-aircraft batteries after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Some of the units within the regiment were employed in Anti- Motor Torpedo Boat defenses. References found list the last commander for the 14th CA in 1944.

I believe this insignia was made in the Interwar period. I used flash on this insignia and the Lynx face look much less bright in natural light.

Very good condition with a chip of enamel out at the top bend of the left side ribbon.

Shown in BB& B’s 1928 catalog.
