Here;s one that was posted in an E-Bay link recently, I thought I might save the images and add it here, a direct embroided CIB above custom ribbons on a 80th Inf Div officers OD wool shirt, all early German made I suppose.

Here is my contribution to this topic. Attributed to Edward J. Monahan RA6139430. The blue field is porcelain rather than enamel.

Heres a crude Vietnamese made example (I think)

 

That's a very similar design to one I posted earlier that my father brought home from Vietnam. That also looks like a Vietnamese made Bronze Star ribbon below the CIB.

 

These are so crudely made, I always wondered if anyone would actually wear one. Is yours on an attributed uniform? If so, can you show a picture of the other insignia?

The CIB is on a uniform from a grouping of have to a Spc in the 1st Cav. The uniform has theatre made ribbons sad well. I'll try to post pics in a few days when I'm off work.
