We've taken our original COG design and made it even more Inglorious!
“Espionage is not a nice thing, nor are the methods employed exemplary. Neither are demolition bombs nor poison gas…. We face an enemy who believes one of his chief weapons is that none but he will employ terror. But we will turn terror against him…” – Gen. William J. Donovan
What started out as an “unusual experiment” ended up changing the face of WWII. General Donovan’s “Glorious Amateurs” should be remembered for “some of the bravest acts of the war”. Inglorious Amateurs honor those great men and women with this tribute to the Contingent Operational Groups (COG) of the OSS with our revision of our first release.
This shirt features the iconic unit insignia used by allied combined operations command forces and later adopted by OSS officers in the 3rd Contingent Operational Group. The insignia elements contain an eagle for airborne forces, a Thompson machine gun for ground forces and an anchor for maritime forces. RUMINT reporting suggests this insignia might still be in use today by select Paramilitary Officers, but if we told you more they’d have to well…you know…
This time we’ve added in our version of the original top rocker and tied everything together to make the COG V2 one of our best offerings yet.
