Saunders Military Insignia
553rd EMS Batcat Chuck Gascoigne found another source for the Batcat Wing patch at Saunders Military Insignia in Florida. When the Homepage comes up do a search for 553rd (be sure you enter it as 553rd with the rd at the end, not just 553, or Batcat). At this time the cost is shown as $25.00 plus shipping of $3.00. UPDATE - these are handmade patches. Two Batcats have told me it takes quite a long time to receive the patches from Saunders Military Insignia, although both individuals DID received the patches. Added 05/30/05.

Batcat Mark Hoffman sent me this image of his Handmade Saunders Batcat Patch with a butane lighter next to the patch for a size comparison. Added 05/30/05, Added 12/29/07.
