    Default Insignia lot - help identify please!

    Hi folks, I just picked up this grouping of insignia at auction for $20.
    I can identify most of them but there are several that are not familiar - hopefully you can help. The large blue insignia must be a Japanese Navy Paratrooper patch. I know nothing about them. The smaller black and gold crossed anchors is unknown. The black triangle patch with gold motif seems to be US. I also do not know anything about the black swastika patch with silver wreath. The boards seem to be Feurschutz and RAD. Any help or clarification would be appreciated. Neil

    The bottom left circular patch is a German Heer pre-war funkmeister (similar to signal corps) patch.

    Robert touched upon this one. Here is an original Schuma cap badge from my collection. Note the weave to the back.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ade, Thanks for the photo of the Schuma insignia. It looks like an NCO grade maybe? The example I have is in silver thread - may be officer grade or fake.

    The one beside the Schuma, with the crossed anchors and lifesaving ring
    is a modern commercial badge.........
