Your one lucky man, good for you. My gdd wore that patch in the ss gebirgsjager.
I love making mistakes like that.
This is nice, but I'll never forget that story of a guy who bought a Swedish army jacket for $20 and it turned out to be an original M43 German tunic. *Drools*
Indeed a nice original patch !
