    Default 3 DSK cloth and canvas patches: your opinions?

    Here come in a row several patterns of 3 DSK "Christmas trees" patches, the famous Choinka. The two printed on canvas were sold as been produced in England, and are slightly different. The other two are of the worsted/embroidered type, while the last one I guess is some sort of copy, since is excessively crude.... what's your opinion? thank you in advance for your knowledge and help!

    Hi Loupie,

    Check this thread for some details on a producer of printed insignia for the Poles:

    Polish 1st Armoured Division Patch Cotton - Genuine..??

    The three embroidered patches are bogus

    Regards,
    Tony

    Hello Tony,

    I had more than some doubts on two out of three embroidered flashes, whereas the one sewn on bd cloth seemed still reasonably authentic to me, mainly because I have seen it sewn on a couple of blouses... the printed badges, together with printed Poland titles (both serifs and sans serifs) and Eight Army shields come from James Snook's factory, Hounds Gate, Nottingham.

    Hi Loupie,

    The Poles fabricated much of their own uniform insignia from available materials, so thereís a possibility this one may be period, although Iíve never seen one like it. Iím not keen on the quality of fabric used, nor the crude construction. Even though materials were in short supply at the time, itís doubtful that such a flimsy product would have been used. Thereís also an absence of honest age considering the obvious weakness of the fabric.

    It looks to me to be more of an attempt at producing something that could be passed off as a field made item. Here are two genuine examples that the one you pictured may be trying to mimic.

    Regards,
    Tony
