    Default Russian Army of Liberation armshield

    Hi Guys, I have owned this one for many years now. I bought it around 1979. A nice issued and worn peice, possibly bloodstained too.

    These Russian volunteers for the German sponsored Russian Liberation Army (Russkaya osvoboditel'naya armiya) were known as "Pals of Adolf" by Brtish soldiers due to them reading the letters as "POA".



    Cheers, Ade.

    Very nice patch Ade I have a couple when I get a chance I will post. This is a patch you defiantly didn't want to be wearing at the end of the war. Gary

    Hello,
    Very nice armshield, thanks for sharing it with us Ade.
    I didn't know how british soldiers called POA troops due to these three letters, very interesting, thanks again.
