Hi everybody,

 

I'm looking for all informations about this DUI.

2nd Cavalry Regiment, Wellington Japan.

 

I doesn't find informations about this regiment in Japan, Korea or Vietnam. After the end of WW2, he stays in Germany.

 

Thanks a lot

Bonjour

 

Japanese made c. 1950s-60s, more like 60s, w/ Box address .

 

Pourquoi? Marketing 101, can't sell what you don't have. Uncommon for sure.

 

Au revoir

Just as the Germans made a lot of stuff in patches and DIs for units that never set foot in Europe no less Germany in the 50s-60s, the Japanese did likewise. As Tred said, a market thing, making loads of Army unit insignia that was on the books at that time, for any interested parties to buy.
