Cap patch? Something else? French Cockade


Recommended Posts

Hello all

 

Would this be a cap patch or something else? I have had it in my collection for a while now but never figured out.

It's 1.4 inch wide and has the same colors as the Replacement Depot Patch so could it be a cap patch for this unit or am I way off?

Thanks for any insight.

So we can agree to the first conclusion of this patch being a patch king cap patch for the French Forces in the US?
