Recommended Posts

I have not been able to id this patch/insignia.

it measures 5.5 x 7.5 cm. (2.1 x 2.9 inch)

On red felt, with two crossed, flaming torches.

 

The patch is in good condition. I have bought in Salt Lake City together

with other US patches. And that is why I still think it is US,

but might it be foreign?

 

All information will be appreciated.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks for the thought. If it is indeed French, any ideas on the army, unit etc.?

Thanks Andrew and Reforger. After some more digging ( thanks to your tips) I have found it.

It is indeed French, 1945 enlisted model SSI of the French Army SEA ( Service des Essence des Armees…..fuel service of the army)

Again, thanks for the help.
