Roosevelt and Churchill approached Pan Am to form a subsidiary that would have outposts in Africa, and the venture became instrumental in supplying Allied troops in Egypt and Sudan. The patch is in khaki embroidered in light blue and reads PAA by the winged globe logo, which bears the word AFRICA.

SIZE: Approximately 1-3/8" in height and 3-3/4" in width.
