ARTIFACT: This is a beautiful circa 1944 formation sign (patch) for the British 14th Army, which was under the South East Asia Command, and by the end of World War II was the largest Commonwealth army. The patch was hand-made in India and has a sword and the Roman numeral XV at its center. Two of these patches came to us with pin-back fasteners, newly identified as a pair, as worn.

VINTAGE: Circa 1944 (World War II).

SIZE: Approximately 2-3/8" in height and 2-1/16" in width.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Woven wool embroidered in silk/cotton thread, canvas backing.

ATTACHMENT: Horizontal safety-style pin.

MARKINGS: None.

ITEM NOTES: The patch you receive will either be the one pictured or one in similar condition. This is from a Great Britain and Commonwealth militaria collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. nwph MBJX13 LHEX9/13

CONDITION: 7 (Very Fine): The sign has a few very tiny moth holes and some oxidation on the pin only.

GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
