    Default some good finds

    Was at the antique fair today and found some nice items . The patches came out of a album all pre war and war made. The bayonet is a little rough but I didn't have one so now I do. The gas mask was a good price so how could I say no. Can anybody ID the patch in 2nd photo. I just cant remember what its for. I also like the old style 6th and 7th patch. Gary

    Hi Steve I know I've seen this patch before just can't put my finger on it. All the patches came out of a album I don't even want to think about what was sold before I got there . I posted the mask in the German section if you want to see better photos . Gary

    Don't worry about it, or it will eat at you - if it hasn't started to already, Lol.

    That patch is the only one of group I wasn't familiar with - but I found it !
    It's for the 'Southern AAAC ( Anti Aircraft Artillery Costal )
    Defense Command'.........!

    Lol - I tried the internet for a few minutes, and realised it wasn't to be found there.
    Then, I got up off my arse and leafed through a 1940's publication by 'Wolf
    Appleton' on US WWII shoulder patch insignia that I have. The illustrations
    are poorly done, as is the red and blue two-colour printing and cheap
    paper stock, but it lists most all the patches that were in use during
    the war. ( These booklets originally sold for 15 cents )

    Below is what the cover looks like:

    Thanks Rich went back today and found a few more things. I paid more for the luft patch then all the other items put together. Oh and I got the luft patch very cheap. I had to pick up the Corgi Jr. AMC Pacer for my son. Gary
