Just wanted to let you know I received the 560th patch from my great
uncles squadron and it looks great. Please keep my information on file
as I would be interested in any other 388th Bomber Group things, especially
the 560th squadron. I plan on either mounting it on a round leather backing
and attaching it the breast of an original A2 jacket, or mounting it in
a matted frame beneath other 388th misc. from my Uncle's group. Thanks
You're Welcome Tim, I am glad you like it. I am always happiest
when the patches go to the family of one of our WWII Veterans. Please
send me a photo when you get it finished. All the best, Brian
