Most of the Chinese Nationalist Army Air Force pilots trained by the US in WWII were trained at this field. Fabulous, thick chenille patch, original price of $1.75 still on back – moth nip at 7:00, but does not detract too much. The center of the patch features the Thunderbird insignia in black, red, and white detail.

VINTAGE: Circa WWII

SIZE: Approximately 5-1/4" in diameter

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Chenille, chain stitch, wool felt, canvas backing

ATTACHMENT: None

MARKINGS: "1.75" on reverse

ITEM NOTES: This is from a USAAF collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VBEJX07 LABGEX12/15

CONDITION: 8- (Very Fine—Excellent): The patch shows moderate wear, moth nip at 7:00 and a couple other tiny nips in chenille, overall very fine condition.

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