Default 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.
