    Trade with an RAF Visitor

    Post by Camo_fiend on Fri Jul 13, 2012 10:52 pm

    Nothing too exciting, just some patches & pieces I picked up from a visiting RAF officer. He was accompanying an air cadet squadron. I'm guessing he was an instructor? Not sure how cadets in the UK works?

    Being the camo geek I am, I always spot non-US personnel rather quick around base. Laughing I ran into him at the DFAC and we struck up a conversation, and militaria came up. He said he'd see what spare kit he could find for me. I rounded up some US bits as well and we did a trade the next afternoon. He was very friendly and professional, and I enjoyed chatting with him. A true credit to Her Majesty's Forces!

    I know the big patch is a university patch, I understood him to mean it was where he had gone to school prior to commissioning. Not sure what the CCF is, though.

    Interested in any European digital camo.
