Rare WWII Theater-Made United States Army Air Forces Aviation Engineers jacket patch. Machine hand-embroidered in Belgium or France – only one I've seen. Aviation Engineers were tasked with building and defend air bases. The embroidered patch depicts a soldier riding a winged tank against a background of blue and a white outer ring that reads: "AVIATION ENGINEERS" in red detail.
Approximately 3-3/4" in diameter
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
Fully embroidered, cotton/polyester/silk thread
This is from a USAAF collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. MAX16 LEGEX12/16
8- (Very Fine—Excellent): The patch shows minor wear and soiling, colors remain bright, overall very fine condition.
GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
