Gift of Andre Cox
According to a letter sent to the NYHS by John Condon, firefighter Andre Cox of Ladder Company 43 designed a purple bunting addition to the FDNY department logo patch as a memorialized addendium for those department members who suffered grevious losses. At the time the letter was sent, this design had not been officially aproved by the FDNY.
Due to ongoing research, information about this object is subject to change.
