Yep. I sure missed that one Austin. It's a great image. I'm glad that it found the right home.

 

I have a few new photos to add to this thread. I'll try and get that done in the next day or two.

Hello, 63rd CAC insignia on Holt Tractor during the end of 1918.

This picture was taken at La Courtine training area.

Photo No. 39: Another unidentified AEF truck insignia comprised of clothed rabbits jumping over the letter ‘M’. Can anybody ID this vehicle insignia?

Hey Folks, Here’s a couple of WW1 A.E.F. related items which I believe to be Vehicle Insignia of some sort. Probably for affixing to a Vehicle’s bumper, & or or some other portion of it ? They’re both from the U.S. 26th Yankee Division.

Those are so cool do you have pictures of the backs?

Hello My Friend, The Reverse side of these is just an unpainted surface, exactly similar to the Front yet in Reverse. However, I will be happy to photograph them for you in a little while, as my A/C Serviceman is here right now. Stay tuned. I will also measure them for you so you’ll have an idea as to their relative size. I also received an update on these yesterday afternoon advising me that these items were Post WW1 era Vehicle Insignia for purchase by 26th Yankee Division Veterans ? It may or may not be true, hopefully someone here will chime in with their opinion ?

Thanks for posting the backs.

 

They screw onto something.

Absolutely, They're no doubt meant to be affixed, screwed onto either a Vehicle's Bumper, & or some other portion of a Vehicle ? I was always under the impression that they were of WW1 vintage & use. I was recently told however via 2 different individuals that they were of relatively early Post WW1 manufacture, & therefore use. To me, it does sound plausible that some proud WW1 Yankee Division Veterans would choose to affix one of these Ornaments on their personal, Civilian Vehicles ? So far, I personally have only come across the 2 examples I Posted here, yet just recently I became aware of a similar one, produced for; "E / 102".  Now, to find one for 'my' WW1 Unit, the 103rd Field Artillery, then I'll be happy !!

 

            Best,    Dom
