    Although the coat was likely made in 1969 or 1970, it would have been worn with these patches in the late 1970s or early 1980s, during the RDF period. It is not common to find ERDL jackets with patches on them, especially this medical patch. The patched examples I have from the RDF timeframe are either SF or 82nd Abn.
