Sturm,That’s about it. Thank you. I really appreciate the help/effort you put into it.
I have a 1st gen 1960’s/1970’s NVG with an instruction booklet which I’m trying to ID though If you’re interested in having a look I could post some pics.
On the Black panther patch I’m pretty sure it’s Russian. Got it from the same source many years ago and it made using the same rubberised material. The problem I suspect is quite a few of the patches were variations made in small numbers of units which don’t exist anymore.
Do you collect insignia/patches?
