WWII CZECH RAF Liaison Officer's shoulder Patch

hand-embroidered in England - see verbage below for some history

"Czechoslovakia Civilian Officer", RFU (probably a RAF Officer's style tunic?), Used......(sold)

minor History
The Czech RAF Veteran was in/or around Lakewood, Ohio when this shoulder patch was acquired from him by a man living in Ohio.
During WWII the Veteran's job had been to assist the Pilots and other Czechs in the RAF with: language, customs, personnel problems and etc (i.e., a Liaison Officer).
He returned to Czechoslovakia after the war; later escaping from the Communists and ending up in the U.S.
The man I bought it from thought it had been worn as a Left SSI on a RAF Officer's style tunic.
I purchased this SSI circa 1988 - 1990.
The buyer gets a copy of a hand-printed note outlining the above verbage from the man I bought it from.

partial History of "India" patch

Operation Little Switch
In April 1953, the United Nations and communist negotiators were able to come to the first agreement over POWs, called Operation Little Switch.
Under the agreement, sick and wounded POWs would he exchanged. By June, both sides had agreed to establish a Neutral Nations Repatriation Commission to oversee the return of POWs. Those prisoners who wished to return to their homes were free to do so within sixty days. Those who refused repatriation, or a return to their country, were turned over to the commission, consisting of Indian troops. The troops would protect the POWs for ninety days, during which time communist educators were available in case the POWs wished to change their mind.
Operation Big Switch, the major exchange of POWs, began in August 1953. UN prisoners were turned over to the UN command, and those North Koreans and communist Chinese who wished were permitted to stay in South Korea or go to Formosa(Taiwan).
