This patch is unissued and is cut right off of a production roll. The backing is a thin green rayon, on which is an oval shield woven in dark green thread. Woven into the dark green background are three angled oak leaves, machine-woven in a bright green thread complete with the leaf veins. At the base - at about the 7 o’clock position - is a short, central stem in dark brown thread. The whole patch is bordered by a woven impression of a single strand cable, this rendered in a green thread. There are brown threads serving as lines to distinguish the winding of the cable. A choice, unissued example of this distinctive patch!
