I have had the below black and white image of this patch in my reference for a long time that I believe came out of one of the Chute & Dagger newsletters.  The information with this image indicates some sort of possible association with an UNPFK/UNPIK Task Force during the Korean War.  This is the first time I have seen one of these patches surface so it has got to be very rare.  Thanks for sharing this as I now have a color picture of this patch.

Gentlemen. Try doing a side by side comparison and tell me if you don’t think it is one in the same patch.

 

 

So I did an image overlay in photoshop, and as sjones stated, the path is the exact same patch from the black and white photo.

It has been IDed by someone I trust as the 2nd Raider Company 8227th AU activated 2nd Dec 1950 7 Officers 171 Enlisted men and 4 ROK Interpreters.I saw this patch somewhere at least 25 years ago and could not buy it then.All things come to those that wait.
