    Default Croatian cap badges (and button)

    These badges were worn by Ustaše. (Ustasha). Circle badge has letters AP which stands for Ante Pavelić- Croatian leader during WW2. Splitter is missing. It was attached above "U". Bot of these badges were coloured- letters AP and U were black, and chessboard was white and red. Coloured examples are extremly rare, because everything, that can be found on the market, is dug up from mass tombs in Slovenia (or fake). These are from Slovenia too. I got them from a friend of mine.

    i havnt seen them either, they must be quite rare. could the grenade mean they owner was a grenedier in the croatian army???
    A grenade is a quiet oftne used military symbol, not always related to grenadiers.
    In Belgium "a" police force called Gendarmerie used it, even customs had it in theyre insigna.
    I know the question was ment for the Croatian army, but I just wanted to add some "input".... as general information!!

    Actually guys, it's not a grenade... It should be sort of torch with flames. But I'm glad you like it!
    I've forgot to mention that these were carried by soldiers. Officers had different ones. (maybe I'll post one later- it's fake) There are ofcourse bunch of other badges-police, Homeguard, labor service etc.
