Hi Eric, and Everyone on this site
I know it's been quite some time, but I haven't forgotten that I had promised you that if I ever found out the ID of the patches that I had, that I'd be sure to let you know.
I actually wrote History Detectives back in Dec 2011 & they wanted to do the story. Long story short, I filmed with them in Feb this year and I'm not supposed to leak the info due to papers I signed, but the producer Finally told me the show will air on July 31st. He said 8pm,,,,but you'll have to check your local listings. Hist. Det is on PBS.
If you don't get a chance to see it or can't, just let me know and I'll be more than happy to give you ALL of the details. I do have to say it's very interesting to say the least that NOBODY would probably have been able to find out since even the National Archives didn't even have this patch listed in their vast library warehouse, even under the "Unofficial" listings
Let me know what you think....
Thanks again for all your help in trying to ID these!
P.S. I still have 1 of them.........The Original pilots son gave me 1 of them back (on camera) after I presented them to him
