    Hi Bruce

    Yes WWII era Iceland Command SSI

    Some collectors will say this is English made , based on the black return thread, however this is US made which uses Rayon thread on a schiffli embrodery machine.

    British makers used silk thread

    Phill,

    I've now seen a couple of these patches for sale online identified as 'British made'.

    So I'm wondering how you know they were indeed US made. Is your information from a written reference?

    TIA,
    Bruce

    Hi Bruce

    I stand corrected it is Brit made.

    I had to recheck my patches, the border and reverse is Brit made silk thread.

    The border colour can vary.

    Below are several other Brit examples.

    100% Brit made. Should feel very silky and flimsy.

    Thanks for clearing that up.

    And yes, the patch does feel somewhat flimsy.
