Thanks LucN

I know what you mean , there are many reference's out there re above British Airborne Insignia , as with American patch collecting you do have to be careful and know what to look for especially WWII/Post WWII period as manufacturing techniques change slightly in construction , thread , backing etc...

The interesting summation I have found , looking at elite Brit Formation patches online stores that have been labled WWII are not, so yes it pays to do research before you buy.

Thanks for the heads up.
