    Yeh patch is WW1 Australian colour patch. This would have been the wearers WW1 unit and he ould have worn it on his WW2 tunic.....I don't believe RAAF wore colour patches in WW2. I believe the colour patch was worn in WW1 as the first Aussie air force squadrons were formed under Army command.....
    Australian Flying Corps in WW1 was technically a Army unit, therefore the use of the UCP. The Royl Australian Air Force was formed in 1921, as a service in its own right, hence no Army colour patch was used.....

    Interesting o note, the current Australian Army Aviation corps, is a direct descendant of the AFC, and continues to wear similar UCP
