The patch was for US citizens who came north to volunteer for the RCAF. For reasons unexplained the RCAF allowed the national identification of US citizens while the US was still neutral. The Canadian army fought an on-going battle with soldiers of US citizenship who had come north and enlisted, and then wore a USA title. Despite repeated requests to wear a USA nationality title, it was ruled that such titles should not be worn.
