Hi everyone!
Chuck Anderson here!

I'd like to tell everyone about something that was a good source of rank insignia information (at least it had been for me.)

I would write to the foreign embassies in my country (the USA)--I think that it would work in other countries as well. Anyway, I'd write directly to a nation's military or defence attache, and ask specifically for rank insignia information, and they usually came through with something good! (When I wrote it was in the late-60's,early-70's.) Some of them gave me a real nice, full colour rank insignia chart.

The European nations that came through were Austria,Belgium,the Netherlands,West Germany (it was the late-60's),Finland,Sweden,Denmark and the United Kingdom.

I still have many of them from back then that are in fairly good condition, and I'd like to give these to Pavel because I think that he can make good use of them for his website.

Keep on searching for more good insignia stuff folks, the more the merrier!!
