Hi there BC

I have never seen an Aussie wing like that before. The only letter "B" would be for bomb aimer and that was from WW II - hence no QC and definitely not full wings. Looks like a Canadian production but why they would have a "B" on full wings I don't know.

Kind regards

Doug

this patch is on a board of civil and military paches produced by a now defunct manufacturer. these patches were on the walls leading to the offices.

Hi Badgecollector,

Definitely not Aussie, wrong colour wreath and the use of lurex - fortunately we have not succumbed to using this horrible material as yet!

It definitely not Canadian. To me it looks like someone's imagination and a sewing machine.
