Great colorful Indian made Ledo Road variant patch.
The Ledo Road was a tremendous undertaking by U.S. Army Engineers during WWII, along with native labor supporting the project. The road was made to supply China with necessary military and other aid. It began in India, through the rough mountainous region of Burma and on to China.
Made of large gauge colored, and bullion threads, with tiny twisted wire to separate colors, all done on course linen fabric. The patch shows signs of having been worn on uniform.
It is 3 1/4 inches high.
As usual with CBI made insignia, the variety of shapes, sizes, materials, and colors, makes for an interesting and fun area of patch collection.
Very good- fine condition.
