Does anybody know the history behind this patch?

Postby scott90 » Wed Nov 30, 2011 9:15 pm

I was wondering if anybody had any info about this patch. I know it was not worn on any uniforms. What was it used for? Is it authentic?

Never seen it before, but it is certainly not official as it is uni-lingual.

The shape of the silver badge and the name Canada Border Services Agency places it post-2003 though. Probably a social-club, morale booster type thing

Yep, likely an unofficial unit patch that somebody had made up. There're all kinds of them on eBay.

Looks like better quality than the catsup guy usually makes though... :roll:

It looks to be one of the "heinz Speicals" fake patches.
