Hi Gentlemen!

This patch can be seen on a BDU tunic on the right breast over the name patch. The owner was Colonel in the US Ordnance Corps. I can't find it among the official badges/patches.

Please help!

Customarily, foreign awards earned by US Soldiers that are available in a subdued version for wear on the old BDU would wear them on the right side, as long as they had a corresponding US award on the left. It looks like it might be the Ordnance Qualification badge of the South Vietnamese Army, their version of the Explosive Ordnance Disposal Badge.

That would have been custom made, there is (or at least used to be) a tailor's shop outside of Fort Bragg that would make these up for just about any foreign badge you had.

when we were still allowed to wear foreign badges on combat uniforms I had several made for various foreign jump wings, so that I had a different set of wings for each uniform.
