    Default Need help to id'

    Hi guys,

    I need some experts opinions on this un-official Finnish army cloth insignia.
    The cloth insignia is placed on the left side of the tunic. The colours are very dark blue and red. The colours are placed in four small squares, made into a big one. This big one is placed like a diamond from a card-game at the tunic.
    The tunic is from the infantry.

    Can someone help me to attach this one to a regiment/unit?

    Sorry for the plastic around the mark. The tunic is sealed in a back for protection against moth and stuff. Click image for larger version.

    I haven't seen such a thing before. Does the uniform have collar tabs?

    Thanks for asking Aleksander P.
    Yes it does. It is an infantry tunic with infantry collartabs and crossed infantry rifles at its epaulettes.

    I don't have any information on it, but there's a book made by Juha E. Tetri called "Suomen puolustusvoimien tunnuksia ja asevelimerkkejä 1941-1945" which could point out what unit this insignia belonged to. Personally I haven't been able to find a copy yet.

    Hi, The patch is not illustrated in mentioned book. The patch is still mystery to me. There is still few unknown patches shown at SA-kuva images and at private collections. Someday they are (I hope) solved.

    Thank you for the information regarding the book and whether it was in there or not.
    I hope these unknown cloth insignias will get solved. All of them.

    Nevertheless I hope someone maybe have a clue to this unknown finnish insignia patch.

    Does anyone know if JR12 "Jänkäjääkärit" had any sleeve insignia? I was watching the movie Tali-Ihantala 1944 and one officer appeared to be wearing one.

    Yes, they had an un-official sleeve insignia. I shall see if I can find it from period pictures. But just to answer your question; yes!
