    A 3rd DSK arm flash, of the usual three pieces construction, but no cheese cloth backing, and a not really convincing fir tree... a poor attempt at faking a genuine patch or a theater made insignia? Thank you in advance for your knowledge, Panowie!

    Hi Loupie,

    Agreed with Kosa. One of the many 3DSK variations, some more crude than others. This one appears to be an unissued example.

    Some soldiers made flashes themselves. They made them as they could, so the degree of crudeness is wide open Myself I wouldn't make a better looking flash compared to the one I posted above.

    Best,

    Hi Loupie,

    I'm posting a display that I have finished recently. You can see two printed 3.DSK flashes at the bottom raw on the right side. I have 5 more flashes sitting in a box

    Cheers,

    Kosa, great looking display . Thanks for sharing. The printed example in the middle of the bottom row appears to be a Snook product. Apparently produced in the UK late war, or more likely early post.

    Thank you Tony Yes, the printed one is a Snook product. The other one on the right is a canvas print too.

    Cheers,

    Default Still another variation

    Hi everyone,

    For your viewing pleasure still another 3DSK variation. This one appears to be made from a slik flag of Italy.

    Cheers,
    Kosa
