There was a topic about the GS badge where I posted many pictures about the badge, certificates, MacArthur ... but I couldn't find it.

 

HAVE A NICE DAY

"I have only two men out of my company and 20 out of some other company. We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold." (Message sent by 1st Lt. Clifton B. Cates. USMC, 96th Co., Soissons, 19 July 1918 - later 19th Commandant of the Marine Corps 1948-1952)

About 15 years ago I was able to purchase a newly made version of this badge at a reasonable price. I am willing to pass it on in case anyone is interested.

Here is a link to a video of General MacArthur wearing the 3 inches version of the War Department General Staff badge.

 

In my understanding this must be a video made from a official Army source and so without copyright or to have to pay for.

If you find this video, please post the link.

The 3 inch badge is the "Chief of Staff" Badge. I don't believe Chiefs of Staff wore the 3 inch badge after the 1930's.
