  1. Does anyone have a firm ID on the middle ova design shown here?
  2. Does anyone have any supporting information for the Unconfirmed Variation of the 15th S & S Bn oval shown here?
  3. Do you recall if the Flashes the school used were locally produced or did they make use of the 4th BN (LT)(ABN) 68th Armor flahse?
  4. Here is what I have so far on the Flash. Please not though that the information is still unconfirmed/verified. There seems to be some confusion as to the various combinations worn by the Aviators vs Pathfinders.
  5. Does anyone recall there being a photograph of a young Army Lawyer wearing the attached insignia combination on the Forum somewhere, or have I just been "couped up" to long?
  6. This photo shows the "buff" middle section much better than the original above It for sure says "QM" to me but still can't find the specific unit designation or title for it. Did the Material Delivery Unit have a designation that you know of?.
  7. The design (minus the wings) listed on page 3 of the unknown section of Clyde Osborn's monograph of Flashes and Ovals. I did find that.
  8. Tonomachi's ID on the oval make sense but for some reason I keep wanting to associate the oval with a QM unit. Just can't find the reference right now.
  9. I would have some reservations about the two outer ones as they share a common backing material which always seems to me to be suspect.
  10. Here are some identifications per Bill Hudspeath's book
  11. Allen, this item has been listed in every Oval reference book I have ever owned. However, I have never seen one with pin holes or wing ghosting on it. Do you have any reference material or photographs showing the Black Hats (or anyone else) wearing this as an Oval? The only other "story I have ever heard about it is that it was sewn on the ball caps of supporting instructors at of the Infantry Center. Would like to resolve this one once and for all one day.

Do you have any photos or reference material to help support the notion that this is a background trimming.The only other "story" I have ever heard was that they worn sewn on the ball caps of supporting instructors at the Infantry Center.

  13. New Flash & Oval design to keep our eyes open for. 346th QM Company (TADC)(ABN).
  14. The attached clip is from a mock up sheet for my 187th Pathfinder display. Has anyone ever seen physical examples of the highlighted items?
