trying to find some information about the volunteer military force
or "Aizsargi" rank insigniaand collar insignia.
I think the collars had gold wheat sheaf type insignia formost ranks with rank insignia on collar patches.

Above is a modern image. Below is a Contemporary image. The Contemporary image seems to indicate that the collar patch cointained the wheat sheaf, while the shoulder strap contained the rank insignia. The modern image shows oakleaf of an German pattern instead of the wheat sheaf on the collars, but also rank insignia in the form of Three stripes on the shoulder strap.
I have never seen a rank chart for Aizsargi. Littlejohn's vol. 3 of Foreign Legions, doesn't contain anything about the Aizsargi.

Osprey: Men at Arms 363 has some Baltic insignia. If you would, I could send it to you. PM me with your e-mail address.
