This is a WW2 British made Dutch Free Forces uniform patch. The lion was worn by all members of the Netherlands Army (Allied forces) what was later renamed as the Royal Netherlands Brigade. The Brigade was part of 21st Army Group and took part in the liberation of Western Europe and the Netherlands. The badge worn by all Netherlands troops on the left upper arm of their Battle Dress and when the Netherlands Army was re-formed the 'NEDERLAND' on the badge was replaced by 'JE MAINTIENDRAI', the motto of the House of Orange. Nice original patch in good condition, uniform removed.
