U.S. ARMY BRANCH INSIGNIA
Second World War
It would seem the US Army forgot all they had learned about subdued insignia
by the outbreak of the Second World War.
Branch insignia for field wear were made from polished metals with bright
Insignia shown are the officers' versions. Enlisted soldiers wore a smaller
version, without enameled colors,
superimposed on a 1-inch metal disc of polished brass. The Branch names are
displayed using the 1940's Branch color(s).
