This large table runner is 36" X 14" and was most likely made in Egypt-- along with it came a pillow case with similar embroidery that is marked as Egypt.

The Army Air Corps (AAC) insignia dominates the embroidery. The camels and pyramids are typical subject matter of this style embroidery, but the unit insignia is not something I have encountered before.

The embroidery style is typical of embroidery that I have for the 8th Air Force in England.
