    Interesting Motorcycle Despatch Rider Patch

    Hi Chaps,

    I recently picked up a nice well worn Motor Cycle Despatch Rider (unofficial) sleeve patch that I thought I would share.

    The basic design is of a pattern that is often seen, however this example stands out as it has a yellowish gold detail to some areas of the weave that I have not previously seen. This patch came out of Canada, so may have been manufactured there.

    Anyway not revolutionary but just out of the ordinary enough I thought it may be of interest.

    Cheers,

    Roy

    Could it be "Guards" colours?

      Hi Rob,

      That's a thought that didn't cross my mind.

      Cheers,

        Good call Rob, I recently got caught out and bought a Guards colours badge by mistake at Stoneleigh Fair. Blast!
