    Hi guys,

    A friend of mine gave these to me. He said that he found them wadded up inside of a grenade. Do any of you know what these are? They are made of what feels like a very coarse wool.

    Thanks,
    Mo

    They are French WW1 patches for a Balloon Mechanic!

    No idea how rare they might be, but definitely a nice find
