69th Imperial Dewback Cavalry Patch (“The Pleasure of the Desert 2011”)

February 25, 2011


This embroidered patch was made by the “69th Imperial Dewback Cavalry” — a group of Star Wars fans who like to dress up as sandtroopers for fun and charity events. I can’t say that I really know anything about them, but it sounds like they’re a sort of unofficial branch of the 501st Legion. It’s a fairly large patch, at nearly 4″ on a side, and the design is attractive. Obviously what drew me to the patch was the image of Oola, who is quite nicely portrayed in embroidery. I’ll have to make sure I keep this one a safe distance away from my Jabba the Hutt boyscout Jamboree patch. 😀

    That is a nice patch and Oola looks superb. I like the figure for the 69. Very stylish.

    I’m glad you like the design.
    You are correct. The 69th Imperial Dewback Cavalry is a subdivision of members from the 501st Legion.

      I got it on eBay. Don’t know if they are still available, or if they can be found elsewhere.
