Help... This Thing Is Really A Pig To Identify!


Bugme

Recommended Posts

I got this patch as part of a patch collectors estate. 99.9% of these have been U.S. Military. However, I'm unable to identify this patch.
Is it even U.S.? Any help would be appreciated

I think it's actually a wild boar....and possibly British...though I can't be 100% sure yet.

Something tells me it is British or Commonwealth...

I was just trying to save your bacon Scott...didn't mean to hog the limelight! I was maybe thinking of this British formation patch. Doesn't your state of Arkansas have a "wild boar" connection?

Like JS & hawdriver mentioned, the "Razorbacks" do have a boar as their mascot/logo, but I think their colors are red.

A member asked a legitimate question and gets one good response plus a bunch of really stupid ones. Any wonder there are quite a few members who no longer post anything from their collections.

Garth, this thread should have been closed after post 12. It was not, and I'm sure the author had every possible ability to close it. A bit of fun is not a bad thing, and making disparaging remarks about such a fun thread is a surprise from you.

R,

The thread went from fun to silly to ridiculous in very short order. I had a discussion just this day with a very serious medal collector who could add a lot to the forum but will not due in part to threads degenerating pretty much like this one did.
