Army Staff badge ( former General Staff badge )

Recommended Posts

According to Circular number 45, August 2, 1933 the ID badge was worn on the left. Circular number 1 of 1937 changed the way of wearing to the right side.

Hello

Here is a picture of General Creighton W. Abrams.

All the items (rank, collar, ribbons, unit citations) are handembroidered and I think the General Staff ID badge also is a handembroidered item ?!

Hello

 

I'm always fascinated again when I found a image that shows a carrier of the badge.

 

Here is a picture from Charles P. Summerall wearing the General Staff ID badge.

It should be noted that these jumbo sized "General Staff ID Badges" are actually Army Chief of Staff Badges.

Hello

I'm always fascinated when I find handembroidered General Staff badges.

 

"Grouping of items attributed to Lieutenant General Milton G. Baker (1896-1976), founder of Valley Forge Military Academy. Items include 2 staff badges, bullion shoulder boards, cap eagle, 8 pins, British Order CBE, British Order neck ribbon, and a 1977 booklet of Valley Forge Military Academy. This lot has a reserve."

 

But I can't by a lot like this only for the ID badges I'm interested in.

Sec. 3 describes the quantities of members of the General Staff:

1 Chief of Staff
