I have an Apollo 1 mission patch that was given to Deke Slayton in late 1966 by the flight crew. The patch is 3 1/2 inches. My question is, were the official crew worn patches from the Gemini program (GT-5 through GT-12) the same size? Thank you.

The patches worn from Gemini 5 to 12 were all pretty small, about three inches (although not quite like the souvenirs they still sell today). Apollo 1 was about 3 1/2, and Apollo 7 to today have all been the larger four inch size.
