SpacePatches.nl notes that during his June 18 spacewalk outside the International Space Station, cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev wore the new "VKD" (EVA) patch for the first time on the right arm of his Orlan spacesuit.

It was not the first time. It was already worn by either Fyodor Yurchikhin or Oleg Kotov during one of the Expedition 37 or 38 spacewalks (I will look it up and post it here).

And here is the old one, dating back to Yurchikhin's and Kotov's 2007 Expedition 15 (a picture of Fyodor wearing that earlier patch; Kotov was also wearing it at that time).

How can I get one to go with the past VKD patches I have?
