    My grandfather brought back from Europe two blue and white patches, they are sort of triangular in shape. It is a white eagle on a blue background. I have pics of them. I was wondering if anyone could help me identify what exactly the patches are. My grandfather can not remember anything about them. Click image for larger version.

    Hi Jared, and welcome to the forum!

    Your Grandad brought home two sets of German Postal Service (Reichpost) sports vest insignias.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The Germans are very specific people.

    Nice insignias. I have never seen these before.

    Thank you Adrian, I have wondered for years what those patches were. My grandfather will love to know what they are.

    My pleasure.

    They seem to sell for around $75 each in the USA.

    Cheers, Ade.

    They have a name: Zeesener Adler. Often it is said it is a political leaders
    sports shirt insignia, but Deutsche Reichspost is correct.
    In a future "Military Advisor" there will be an article about them, as there do exist
    various sizes. I also will show the insignia in wear in the article!
