Help Identify this Patch Please

Recommended Posts

Lengthy search on line found only one similar patch, but the link to it took me to cyber nowhere land. Has similarities to US Air
Corps patch designs, but with the French Cross of Lorraine. Chain stitched on dark blue felt. Details of the wings are outlined in black thread. All help is much appreciated. Thanks, Al

Makes sense. I found a rather detailed post on another forum about the Free French Air Force in WW2. They flew under various Allied commands, including the USAAF, but the article did not say which ones.
