Hi Terry,
I have not seen another one for sale as yet, but they must be out there.

Thanks Gary. The Rats of Tobruk are mega heroes in my book and that is the only patch I picked up when I started collecting the women's army just because I think so highly of them!

Hey Terry - I think the same way.... here is a couple of others to compare size of the Pipes & Drums.. Not to forget there were two members from the Pipes & Drums in the ACDC film clip... I am still looking for a squeaker badge to add to this lot

Regards
Gary
