Rare stubby wing 8th AAF patch

Recommended Posts

I recently acquired this theater made stubby wing 8th AF patch along with a nice 390th BG unit history. I have never seen this variation in over 50 years of collecting. Many of the officers depicted in the 390th book can be seen wearing this version of the patch. My theory is that it was made locally for the 390th when they arrived in England. Any ideas of the origin? These are the stubbiest wings Ive seen on a Brit made 8th patch.
