    Hi all, Just picked up an original VF-5A patch which has been on my wish list for a while now, they do turn up every couple of years or so. I know its a long shot but do any of you have or know someone who has a flight suit or jacket still with a VF-5A patch or even a Korean War era VF-51 patch still attached. I've been searching but I have not been able to come up with any. I have been working on a book about VF-5A and their couple of years with the FJ-1 Fury in 1948-49, but kids and job have got in the way slightly of this project! I am now back working on it again.

    The first VF-51 patch c1950 is virtually the same but with FIGHTING FIFTY ONE
