If it's the 85 Combat Flying School patch with the diving Gannet on it I'll double the offer. Can you post any pics?

Edit: Does it perhaps look like this?

Hi Guys,

The 85 Combat FS patches I offered on this site, have been damaged yesterday when my domestic worker had some 'soaps and jic' :cry: spill on my study table :-x . They are not suitable for sale, I'll have a look around for some more that I have and will inform if I find my other three. [-o<

Please accept my appologies.

Hi all

I would like to hear if someone out there can help me to obtain examples of the following SAAF patches / cloth badges.
I have about 760 examples in my collection and still missing these. Would like to save an example of each for prosperity. I do apreciate donations extremely much. These badges are becoming very expensive - can't afford to buy them all from collectors shops!!
