    Hello Guys,
    Ive been searching the web with no success trying to find out anything about this patch. I think it is a Luftwaffe uint patch or bomber wing insigia...but Im not sure. I would like to find out anything I can about it and appreciate any help I can get. Does anyone know or have any ideas where to look? Ive looked through dozens of web sites and cannot find any with a reference to such patches. Thanks!

    Cheers, Edwin

    I cannot provide you with an ID, but judging from the whole style and shape of the patch, I honestly do not think it is German at all.
    From the symbolism, I would consider it far likelier for it to have some anti-aircraft connection as opposed to it being for a bomber unit. (Notice that the sword pierces the bomber.) Just my two cents.

    Following my instinct, I google'd around a bit for "anti-aircraft" related insignia and found the answer: It's British; 1st Anti-Aircraft Divison, headquarterd at Uxbridge.
