Parachute Rigger

Parachute Rigger

I’ve been asked what this WW2 sleeve patch represents. It would seem to designate a Parachute Rigger. There were other such patches worn on the lower sleeve until about 12/31/47 (same time we lost Division Patches). For example, crossed Signal Flags for telephone wireman and ‘Lightning’ sparks for radioman. Can anyone confirm?
