    Hi,
    This is the Polish Armed Forces education officer shoulder patch. I can't find the booklet containg the exact info on this insignia right know, but AFAIR this patch was officially approved in 1945. I guess it's rather scarce stuff, at least I've come across the genuine patch only once (several put up for sale on allegro looked fake to me). The patch was, however, wrongly described as the USAREUR Labor Service Guard Company insignia, sadly it was described like that on display in the Polish Army Museum in Warsaw... I can recall seeing only a single picture of an unknown Polish soldier wearing this patch on his BD blouse.

    Regards,
    Tom
