Can Anyone ID These USAF Patches


Recommended Posts

The first patch is from Peru, Guardia Civil Peru.

Much appreciated. Not sure how that ended up with the USAF patches!

LOOKING FOR ANY AND ALL ITEMS RELATED TO
THE 305TH BOMB GROUP FROM WWII.

Many thanks. The 9th Air Evac looks Japanese made but I can’t locate it anywhere. It looks like a map of South Vietnam. I wonder what F.B.O.T. stands for.

That could be 9th AEMS if prior to 1966. After that, the 9th AEMS was inactivated and replaced with the 9th AE Group due to the escalating war. This had 3 squadrons (901, 902, 903 AES), and a detachment with at least 10 Operating Locations in Vietnam that fell under the 903 AES. So your 9 could be for 9 AEG or OL 9. Not sure on FBOT, maybe Forward Base of Operations Theatre. Then again, it could be some inside joke or some other obscure meaning known only to those that were there as it is a morale patch. AME is not really my area so that's all I know, hopefully it gets you closer.
