Pictures of Patches from the past
« on: December 24, 2015, 12:41:50 pm »
Hi All

Whilst rummaging around the internet searching for information. I have come across the odd picture of patches that you don't normally see.

Post the real odd pics from the past.

The following are from 1925  Army Recruiting journal.
