    Hi Nick, I would only use the 862nd Engineers patch. Put this on the wearers left sleeve of the jacket. (This is the right side as you look at the jacket) The wearing of two patches shows the unit you were with previously, worn on the right sleeve and the current unit worn on the left. As the other patch is just the generic USAAF patch I would not use it. Had it have been a unit specific patch, then it would have been OK to use.

    Cheers, Ade.
