    I think the shield badge is a WHW tinnie.

    The Baltic one I can only speculate upon. But I wonder if it is a Post war insignia worn by displaced persons working for the US Army. Given the red/white/red colours possibly Latvian?

    Cheers, Ade.

    There most probably the Latvian servicemans in the US army, most of them is POW, and members of 15 and 19 div of SS

    Brilliant hints! I found it: This is indeed for Baltic personnel with the US Forces' Labor Service. See here for other examples:
