As a collector of US Shoulder Sleeve Insignia WWII , I have ventured out to add specific WWII British Formation signs to go alongside there Brothers in Arms.

What I look for in a Formation sign/Patch reference book are three basic points: Historical accuracy , Detail and clear large pictures of Insignia , both front and reverse.

This book covers what I'm looking for as a novice collector of Formation Signs, the detail of insignia is brilliant , you can see the thread , stitch , the "goods" or backing they were machine , printed and hand embroidered on and is exceptional quality for one to make an informed decision.

When sorting out the WWII/1945 to post WWII elite Formation signs or Patches is always going to be the angst of any collector , this will solve most of the issues.

This is the first volume , the second will cover the Allies and more.

If you collect , British Airborne , US Airborne or any Airborne Formation Signs or Patches of WWII/post WWII this book is for you.

Some of the contents covered:

Parachute Wings
Indian and locally produced wings
