Unknown Doherty's One Ring Circus 258th Brass Badge


Carabinieri

Recommended Posts

Purchased this with badge at a flea market in a box with two red cross pins and a private purchase wrist compass. Have had no luck researching it. Hand made and engraved about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Any help would be appreciated.

It would appear to be an UA DI for any number of units numbered 258.

 

I cannot copy and paste a link, but if you google Unit Citation and Campaign Participation Credit Register DA Pam 672-1 - or search the forum, it may be here, you can research the units.

FWIT - looks like a megaphone in the center, what a circus ringmaster would use......not some actual military symbol.....

There was a 258th Aero Squadron in WW1. The triangular imagery of this badge doesn't seem to correlate but the circus reference is equally obscure. Perhaps a particular flight within the squadron? The workmanship could suggest WW1 era - possibly made as a watch fob?

And I looked, and Behold a Pale Horse:

And his name that sat upon him was death,

and Hell followed with him.

Revelation Chapter 6, verse 8

I agree with JOHN. Probably an Aero Sq. They used the word CICUS a lot. Looks like it may have been part of a reunion medal or a fob.
