Unread postby chineur » Fri Jul 01, 2016 11:52 pm

Hello!
I've been watching this forum closely for some time and now register. Happy to be part of it...
I am working through a huge collections of uniforms and insignia. Some of it is easy to identify while other things are not so easy to find.
I though i post some of the objects here and hope someone will recognize them.

Looking forward to all hints (sometimes its hard if you don't know where to search).

Unknown looks like Secondo Capo or Sergente of the Italian Navy, depending on how old it is.

Thank you very much.
So it seems to be a Italian Navy Sergent Motorista
I guess is it from the 30ies or 40ies the way the embroidery is made.

Your very first picture resembles French epaulettes. If this a pair, looks like a Chef de Bataillon (Infantry) rank insignia, equivalent to the Major.
