AIRBORNE PATCH

It's a Thai made copy of a patch that appeared in one of Cencil Smyth's books back in the 80's.

Bob, when do you think this made? I dont think Thailand has changed their manufacturing process very much since the war?

Sure they have. They use modern production methods like Korea and everyone is these days. Far more labor efficient (cheaper) than hand embroidered patches or patches made with a hand guided sewing machine. Go on eBay, type in "Thai Air Force patch" or "Thai Military Patch" and you will see all kind of modern produced patches.

Ok thanks Gil. I swear Ive got some some 1990s-2000s Thai patches that look they were made the same as the Vietnam war era. Of course Ive already forgot that was at least 20 years ago!

The book was done in the mid 80's so had to have been made around then.

 

You will also see this design in some old VICN's with the twisted rope border that was also used on copies then.
