    The patch is WW II, and a nice one. Am not sure about the jacket...it is not the typical style you normally see...they are usually more like an American letterman jacket, but with some different stylistic features. The placement of the patch is also not typical...normally you see them placed like on an A-2.

    My gut on this one is this is a postwar jacket that the patch was added to. It is still a fair deal, because the Disney patch is worth the price...especially given it is in Canadian dollars.

    Thanks for the info, very interesting. OTOH I'm pretty sure the list prices are in USD.

    Here's some more info on the ship referred to in the patch.

    HMCS Trail
