Division Signs • worn on the upper arm

Army• 1939-45
Three examples of cloth Division Signs.
Both embroidered felt and printed cotton of versions of badges are seen.
If the badge is visible in a photograph there is usually no problem to identify the unit from a number of very good books on the subject
The style of portrait photography popular during the 2nd World War usually either cuts off the insignia or shows it at best at a very acute angle.
