I'm always looking for information about the chemical unit insignia (distinctive unit insignia, shoulder sleeve insignia, collar insignia, etc.), manufacture, classification, fakes/reproductions, etc.

If you have any additional information about any chemical-related insignia, please send me a note, a citation, or copy. I'll post the information and give you credit for your contribution(s).
