    Default Misc. US patches

    Hi everyone,

    A while back my uncle was cleaning out his warehouse and gave me this handful of patches that he had no use for anymore(he was retiring after many years in the antique business). Unfortunately he never told me anything about them. So far I've been able to identify the Air Ordnance and the Egypt/Israeli Observer patch. Can anyone provide more info on any of the others?

    1.The Blue Shield with Yellow Stars and Yellow #1 is the New Hampshire State Area Command Insignia
    2. The shield Yellow and Red Background with the Blue Arrow pointing and the Sword is II Field Force Vietnam 1961-1973
    3. The Red Shield with the Yellow Arrows is 32nd Air Defense Artillery Brigade Army Patch
    4. I m not 100% sure of this one but the White Shield with Red outline Blue Trojan Helmet and Sword is West Point Military Academy.
    The oval one I recognise but can't remember at the moment.

    NO it was a Multinational Peace Keeping Force.
    The Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) is an international peacekeeping force overseeing the terms of the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel.

    Thanks for your help everyone. One thing about the 32nd Air defense patches... the strings hanging off, were those part of some sort of tassel(it appears to have been cut)? Or is it just extra material that the soldier would have cut off before sewing it on?
