30th CB Regiment

The emblem of the 30th CB Regiment incorporated the four battalion emblems into its design: 67th, 13th, 135th and 135th. The artwork is signed by "Val & Newt" but nothing is known about "Newt". Further information is sought. The B29 also carried the title of "Big Mike" on both sides and at some point the emblem was modified from 30th to 49th.
