C034869 RCAF SUMMER TROPICAL "CANADA" SHOULDER FLASH.

BACKGROUND: When serving on Canadian soil, branch insignia was worn without "Canada" flashes. When serving overseas and not in Canada, all Canadian military personnel wore "Canada" shoulder flashes to distinguish themselves from other Commonwealth troops. Several colors of insignia were used by the RCAF depending on the uniform worn, light blue on a dark blue backing for air force uniforms, red on khaki-drill for battle dress or great coats and red on khaki-tan for summer uniforms

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: A khaki-tan cloth patch about 8cm wide by 4cm high, with red machine embroidered "Canada" in a slight arch above a RCAF eagle. The flash is in good condition with some fraying and the remnants of threads along their edges from where it was removed from a uniform.

GRADE ****                             PRICE $22.00
