    Three are US shoulder sleeve insignias; these are in the top row. Army service forces x 2 and Ports of Embarkation (1944).

    The yellow bomb on red backing is British RE Bomb disposal.

    The red/blue arm of service strip could be either RA or RE, depending on which way around it was sewn on.

    Red chevrons on khaki are service stripes.

    Under the Poland title is a BAOR flash.

    Cheers, Ade.
