The Apollo 1 crew can be seen wearing their mission patch in photo KSC-67PC-16 dated January 17, 1967.

I didn't realize the mission patch had also been worn at the left shoulder, as Roger Chaffee is doing in photo KSC-366C-126-16. That photo is dated October 18, 1966.

Let alone the reverse shoulder for the flag.

The mission patch moved from the left shoulder, but the flag stayed at the right shoulder. Are there photos of all three crewmen wearing the mission patch at the left shoulder?

There is some footage of Grissom, White and Chaffee wearing their Apollo 1 mission patch at the left shoulder in "The Mighty Saturns: Saturn 1 and 1B" from Spacecraft Films.

Where would the crew have suited up on the planned launch date of Feb 21? Would the suiting-up room on the third floor of the MSOB have been ready by that time?
