'BAoR' unit patch for soldiers in the 'Rhine Army'
Item code: 0010039

Sales price $50.00

British Army on the Rhine (BAOR) cloth formation patch. This is the insignia patch of the British soldiers assigned to the Rhine Army. The Rhine district itself was created in March 1952. The patch is in used and somewhat deteriorating condition. The sword, cross and shield insignia is machine woven on dark-brown, lightweight fabric, but the fabric is rough and brittle: the edges of the patch have some pock-marks and the stitching holding the edges to the back has been removed. Given the rudimentary nature of the patch's manufacture I would date the piece from 1952 to the late-1950's.
