Detailed woven patch, showing Vulcan XM607 and Victor XL189 aircraft with the background representing the refuelling drogue. Produced to celebrate the 35th Anniversary.

Vulcan XM607 undertook the 1st Black Buck raid, piloted by our own Martin Withers DFC. Victor XL189, piloted by Bob Tuxford, was the last Victor tanker to refuel the Vulcan prior to the raid. 

Following the raid there was one last refuelling to take place, off Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Martin had never been airborne in a Vulcan carrying less fuel than he was as 607 closed in on the final refuelling rendezvous. He described his first glimpse of the Victor tanker as "the most beautiful sight in the world".

100mm (4") diameter, designed to be sewn to existing clothing.
