    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!
    Thank you and I'll be very interested in seeing one. A legendary regiment.

    Hi,

    Officially army do not accept these, but as you can see from following photos officers who should monitor appearance of soldier wear patches as well. Finnish army men, NCO´s and officers in frontline eat same food, sleep in same tent, etc. This is the finnish way and still is. So, they are part of unit of their men, "espirit de corp"

    The image you are showing is IMO the green one.

    Below couple period images patches in wear.
