    Interesting archive of underground Vietnam military patches pulled together by John Foster . These were not part of normal military uniforms but were made by the soldiers and sewn into the inside of hats and shirts. “They were secretly flashed to other members of the group or unit, but these patches were basically a private affair.” [via John Foster, Design Observer]
