ARTIFACT: This is an early World War II pocket patch for a Pan Am Airways Africa (also known as PAA Ferries) pilot. 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.

VINTAGE: Circa early World War II.

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

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Cotton embroidered in cotton/silk threads with muslin backing.

ATTACHMENT: None.

MARKINGS: None.

ITEM NOTES: This is from an airline collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VDX10 LAAEX12/10 SAAEX11/18

CONDITION: 8- (Excellent): The patch shows some light wear, especially along edge.

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