Post The Unit Crest As A Painted Sign Or In Any Other Form.


Recommended Posts

This might be a bit of a toughy, but as we know it was done. So if you come across any images of a Unit Crest as signage or in any other form other than as a badge on the uniform, post em here.

 

First up is the DI of the 138th Artillery, it's the pre 1969 type, after which a scroll bearing the motto was added.

I quote from site

"Four Kentucky National Guard officers, members of Battery C, Second Howitzer Battalion, 138th Field Artillery, pose in front of their unit crest on Hill 88, Firebase Denise, in South Vietnam (l to r) Battery Commander, CPT Lyle J. Thompsonk Battery Exec. Officer, 1LT Thomas R. ICe; Forward Observer, 2LT Thomas Clark; Fire Direction Officer, 2LT Richard Pfeiffer, Photograph Courtesy 1SG Joseph P. Simpson and Kentucky Historical Society."

 

 

Here's the post 1969 type for comparison.

Oh PS, the troops in the above photo are wearing the subdued 24th Corps patch, 2/138 Artillery was a XXIV Corps Artillery unit.

Here is an image of my 30th Field Artillery Regiment insignia Collection of metal, cloth, and bullion. The next two pictures show the painted signs at the Main Entrance to Pascarella Compound, the Bn HQ for 1-30th FA in Vietnam in late 1970.

The 2-138th FA was one of only 8 Army National Guard units to actually deploy to Vietnam.

Two of two different Cavalry Regiments from the pre war period 7th Cavalry Brigade (Mechanized) at Ft Knox Kentucky, like the late 30s, seems to of been a fashion in this using the unit crest on the gas tanks of motorcycles and other vehicle in the 7th Cav Bde (Mecz).
