    Thanks all - it's what I thought. Lucky it was a "bonus" item then !

    Now, where did I put the cranberry sauce?

    I believe these were made by an American Company called "Patch King". They made insignia for collectors in the 1940's until the 60's: US WW1 & WW2 patches plus Nazi stuff. The gauze backing to the embroidery is one of their manufacturing traits.

    Some people do collect these in their own right.

    Cheers, Ade.

    As Ade posted a "patch king" patch, which are collected by some people, though why is not something I understand, but each to their own. A period item and maybe it reminds some of their youth.
