The problem for the pics they are in the USA, french people don't made that.
Only a care check on all pics made in south of France can help.
And those patchs are rare in France too.

MISC ITEMS / Re: Our Model T Ambulance is nearly done!
« Last post by ScottG on August 27, 2020, 10:43:38 PM »
  We now have the ambulance in the museum! Here it is yesterday at the auto shop getting some permatex applied to the oil pan as we have a troublesome leak. The bolts are all original and as such they are worn, so when the engine runs, even though the gaskets are new, they still leak until the motor stops. So we were able to seal all but two and those will be done soon, just need to be heated up with a torch and then re set with the permatex. We will start adding more accessories this week but as you can see, the lights and insignia are all on as are the canvas straps to hold the roof down.    Scott

Scott,

With all the excitement it happens.. I forget things like that most of the time...

I get some strange looks sometimes when I unload my M60 machine gun or B.A.R. or my M3A1 grease gun from my truck at the house..

Never got paid a visit from PD though...

Maybe the neighbors feel safer knowing they got some firepower in the neighborhood, in case the zombies come one day....

Fred,

Very interesting information..

Would you happen to have any more information about the French supplier? Would be really great to see a wartime photo of these US patches being made..

Really like the flower pattern material on the back of the 26th Infantry Division patch..
