Post your military armbands.

Recommended Posts

This thread has been prompted by the contents of the "Elvis..." thread which I started earlier today. There's obviously a wide range of military armbands/brassards and doubtless guys among you out there who collect them? So, I thought it might be neat to see them, WW2 thru to today. I've got a few...Military Police..Air Police and Shore Patrol...but no pictures of them yet! So, let's see what you've got fellers!

 

Sabrejet :thumbsup:

 

PS: Mods...I wasn't sure where to place this one. If I chose the wrong forum, please re-direct it. Thanks.

Not sure If I posted this one before. It was made in Hawaii out side of Schofield BKS. Around 2000. there was a unit going out from there.

A "First Sergeant" brassard was used by 3083rd Aviation Depot Group NCO Academy at Fairfield Air Force Station, Calif. The "First Sergeant" pictured here (whose actual rank was Airman 1st Class) was Honor Graduate of Class 57-6, June 21, 1957.

And how can man die better than facing fearful odds,


For the ashes of his fathers, and the temples of his gods."

These brassards pictured are from class 57-12 graduated on 13 Dec 1957 and are from the 3079th Aviation Depot Wing (AMC), Fairfield AF Station, Fairfield CA
I was in contact with one of the members from this class, he said that the class was split into two flights, each with a class commander and two flight leaders. The other I can read looks like Squadron Commander.

and the original picture.

Here's my collection so far....the odd looking one in the middle appears to be a field-made MP armband made from what I believe may be a German first aid bandage or something similar. I got it from a fellow forum member...pretty cool actually,....in fact I got most of them from fellow forum members

Hi Ian.
