    I have maybe 300 or so different WW2 colour patches I will take some pics if you like, unfortunately I don't have Glydes book any more either so I will just have to go by memory LOL ...I hope they do a reprint one day.
    I did mention that to him on the phone. Maybe I should remind him we are two headed cousins and I need him to reprint it as a family favour thingie
    Your going to be a busy lad Luke imaging all of those patches

    More colour patches, that's the way Rene.
    Grab that top notch Glyde of yours mate and give them a label if you could.
    I went chasing a copy of that one Rene. No luck. I even rang his home. He lives in Hobart so I discovered and I'm not the only one chasing his book.
    I think it would be great if we could label the colour patches we post again for easy reference in the future.
    Thanks fella's
    Hey Dave, you should know that I'm a lazy arse
    Regards
    René

    Paul that 2/48th Patch is a beauty I still haven't got one yet... Every time one pops up on ebay It goes for too much money or I bloody miss it!
    I missed a few before i paid a fortune for this one, but i had to have one as my Grandfather(maternal) was in the 2/48th. I cant seem to find any of his Insignia, still chasing the family for info.....i managed to find all his photos and papers so far

    Haha yeah I will see what I can do!!

    A friend of mine (also from Tas) wrote the book on current colour patches and is good friends with Keith from what I hear a reprint is a possibility some time in the near future.

    G'day Paul,
    Nice stuff mate especially your Grandfathers uniform insignia. I think your a very lucky man to have a reli's Service Uniform in your collection.
    I also like your 9th Divi T patch, She's a ripper Paul.
    Thanks for posting

    Have a good one
    Dave
    believe it or not i only just saved his uniform from being thrown out when my parents shifted house. I would have been devastated if it was lost

    The 2/48th has always been a hard unit to collect to because of Diver Derrick. I think we have already talked about this a couple of years back 2 of my great uncles were in the 2/48th. I'd really like to get a hold of their early patch too.
