    Very nice example! I was thinking about starting collecting patches several times but never decided to do so. Who knows maybe in the future...

    When you come accross one from a foreign regiment, you ought to buy it. I'd love to fine a Belgium and a Netherlands one . Beware for fakes, the Nehterlands fake is easy to spot with its typical typo "Netherland". The Poles landed in Normandy and then moved accross France toward Germany . They were at Ahrnem too. I paid a bit or it, but I believe my patch is worth it.

    I haven't seen any WW2 patches at my local flea market but I've seen tons of Homeland War patches from the 90's and present Croatian military patches. The only patch I have from that period is from my dad's uniform from the war. It is still on the uniform btw.

    Yes I like the way they were sewn mechanically on the back side without even cutting the wire from one letter to another. When on the front side it looks as if they are fully separated.

    That's excellent Rich . I'm looking for the badge that goes on the Adrian helmet. It's a bit bigger than the cap one. It looks like the one you have on the right, but your seems a cap one too.
