If you still have-- can you add photos of the unit crests?


Not sure what unit they are for.

Those are not really Unit crests, they are leadership tabs with a bullion representation of the Korean Peninsula and say Korea on them. 


Here is a thread on the tabs. There have been several others written if you search for them.

I wasn't familiar with them and didn't see a Rakkasan crest.  Appreciate the education.
