Default Polish patch

Can someone help me with this patch.
It is stated to be free Polish troops ww2.
But haven't seen one like this before, so I'm a bit curious if it's correct or not.

Best regards,
Teddy

....never seen a real polish RAF nationality title that's printed.
Seen copies, so wouldn't be 100% on this one.

Steve

Interesting comment. Down the rabbit hole said Alice. Under a loupe the title displays all the manufacturing traits of a standard WW2 printed shoulder title, weave, print. Although printed " army" Poland titles, white on red were produced it would appear they were not widely taken into use. I am not aware of the alleged copies, perhaps evidence of their existance can be provided.

Example of the not widely worn printed white on red POLAND shoulder title.
