Nice armored cavalry patch in unused condition.
TCQC Pocket Patch – Distinguished Scout Crew 1970. (TCQC – Tank Crew Qualification Course). Embroidered red thread on white cotton.
The practice of using these patches began in Germany during the 1960s to early 1980s, but was banned by the army, and this type of a badge was assimilated into the existing marksmanship badges program.
See William K. Emerson’s book, “Marksmanship In The U.S. Army,” page 100 for more in depth information on these un-authorized qualification patches.
5 1/4 inches long.
Excellent condition, unused.
