Formerly Unknown Insignia Indentified on this Site

Anyone with any unknown insignia are welcome to E-mail a .jpg image of them to me. Those that are felt to have general interest may appear on this page. I would ask that material, which is foreign, non-military or clearly not World War Two period not be sent. I realized that if you knew exactly what it was you would not be calling it unidentified. If any viewer recognizes an insignia on this page please E-mail the identification and the approximate dates of use. Answers will be forwarded and posted unless parties request otherwise.
